Hello everyone, I’ve been lurking around for a while, and finally decided to join!
My name is Ryan, I’m 6’2", about 238 pounds, and I’m tired of being fat. Now that i’ve got my fatty’s anonymous speech out of the way, here’s what i’ve been doing (please forgive me if I don’t know the correct name for a machine or exercise, i’m still learning):
Monday - 35 Minutes Cardio, Back workout (things like the back extension machine, and long rows)
Tuesday - Upper body training: Upper/Lower Arms, Shoulders, Pecs (Man boobs), Lats (Under arms right?)
Wednesday - 35 Minutes Cardio, abs, maybe back again, but lighter
Thursday - Lower body: Calfs, Quads, Glutes (Man buns), Thighs (Inner/outer)
Fri/Sat/Sun - Off
My food intake is normally the following each day (Keep It Simple Stupid!):
Breakfast - Eggs with cheese/chicken with water, or a whole grain cereal with fat free milk
Snack 1 - Some type of fruit: banana, apple, or a Kashi GoLean! bar
Lunch - Normally a healthy choice/lean cuisine microwaveable meal, but occasionally i’ll get a 6" wheat from subway (steak and cheese today!)
Snack 2 - A whole grain snack bar, like the Kashi Crunchy bars
(My workouts come in at this point, around 8:15pm)
Dinner - Eggs (almost always eggs), some form of meat (sausage, boneless pork chop slices, chicken), cheese, salsa, jalapenos
Before bed - Protein shake with fat free milk
I’m looking for any modifications or advice on this. I finally joined a gym this past Monday, Anytime Fitness, and I really enjoy it there.
If you’ve gotten this far, thanks, and I hope you’ll comment on it!
PS - I’m still browsing the forums pretty actively trying to learn more.
