Hello, I am new here and I need some help.
I am 19 years old and here were my previous ‘stats’.
Goal: I want to get to 10% body fat.
So in about 6-7 months I was able to lose about 50 pounds.
My problem is I have been 180 for about 3 months now, since January, and haven’t been able to lose anymore.
I have a very high body fat percentage (I’m pretty sure its consider high). Its about 23%-25%.
I really want to be lean and have definition. I am noticeably more fit but extremely flabby, especially in my stomach area. I lost my ‘love handles’ but my stomach still sticks out and ‘overhangs’. Sorry for the horrible imagery. Nothing else on my body is overly large except for my stomach, and I walk around with my stomach pushed in because I look weird if I don’t. I don’t want to continue doing this.
I went to my local supplement shop and bought the following products.
-Whey Protein Powder
There is no gym close to me. So I bought a Universal weight machine, a few dumbells (up to 35 pounds). I also received a treadmill, and bike (not a real bike, an exercise bike) from my overweight neighbors who are to lazy to use it.
What is the best way for me to utilize my current supplements and exercise machines?
I am very concerned because I will not be able to do any muscle building using the universal machine or dumbbells from Monday-Wednesday. How can I work around this?
Are there any plans I can follow that would fit my goal of 10% body fat percentage. Is this sufficient for my height? I believe you need 12% in order to see abs but I am not positive on this. Any further information would be helpful. I tried something called the “Velocity Diet” on this site where you drink whey protein shakes all day. It was extremely difficult and it only lasted 1 day. I feel if I get into the zone I could accomplish it. But I’m not sure if this is even the best diet for me. Any suggestions?
I hope I gave enough information regarding my situation. I appreciate any help you can give.
