Hi, I’m NewAdventure and I’m a skinny fat guy.
First let me get off on the right foot. I am new to all of this and I am here to learn and I hope you guys can teach me!
So where am I at right now? Well I just recently stopped playing Rugby, I guess for you guys over in the US that’s vaguely similar to NFL - but let’s not start that debate. I just couldn’t deal with always spending a Saturday night sat in a hospital waiting room.
I like to be active. So I’ve turned to weightlifting. I am not going to categorise myself as either a bodybuilder or powerlifter cause…well frankly I don’t deserve to be either, yet. I know in an ideal world I’d like to be as strong and lean as both Evan and Bug off this site, only with an infinitely more handsome face.
I am 6’6" and I started my new journey at 242lbs. I have lifted weights before for rugby, but never really consistantly because in season I always, without fail, fell off the path. A few of my current max lifts are (roughly): Bench - 264lbs, Front Squat: same as bench strangely and Deadlift: 396lbs.
On to the pictures - these will have to be uploaded when I have access to a computer, but suffice to say I am no Arnold. One thing I have noticed is I seem to store all my weight in my upper thighs, love handles and lower abs - thanks mum. Nicki Minaj’s ass has got competition!
Well I wasn’t really too sure which direction to head so if this was actually a battle plan I’d kinda be dead right now. But its not. So luckily for you guys I get to keep typing. After stepping on the scales whcih placed me at 242lbs, 23% BF I decided its best for me to cut - hey its nearly summer! I was sceptical about the body fat reading as ‘athlete mode’ (lol) puts me at like 12%.
So I’ve started a program from John Romaniello, Fat Loss Forever. I’ve been doing this for 2 weeks and lost 10lbs in the first week and just 2 lbs this past week putting me at 230lbs and I think I look better.
You still awake?!
