Hey guys, just wanted to get some advice on something. To start I will fill you in with my situation:
I am a sophomore in college. In high school I was very fit. My freshman year of college I put on a shitload of weight from all the beer and not working out (I lost track of everything). Fall quarter of this year I was still kinda the same guy as freshman year.
What got me going again was working for UPS over our extended winter break. I had to run everyday and sweat my balls off and I actually lost 20lbs in a 5 week period. Winter quarter of this year was when I got back into lifting bigtime again.
As of today I am back to my high school physique and even better. I am much more muscular and tons stronger. I eat extremely healthy and conservative (I will fill you in on my diet further down). I am in total control of my diet and hunger cravings (took awhile but i finally did it)
I have kinda been cutting and packing muscle on at the same time, and it has worked!! I get comments from people who dont see me often like “hey skinnyman” and “you gained a ton of muscle since i last saw you”.
So I am an overall fit kid but I am not happy with my midsection. My upper body is looking great (huge shoulders, real defined arms,etc) and my lower body is looking good too. My top two abs are visible when flexed. I do have a semi bad case of love handles I would like to totally remove and a gut that i wouldnt call little or big, its just kinda unappealing.
Weight: 184 lbs
Workout: 6 days a week weights and cardio
My cardio: Either stationary bike or stairmaster stepmill for 25 min.
Day - Chest and Shoulders
Day - Arms/ Abs
Day - Legs and Back
Day - Anything I missed and abs
Start rotation over (not always in same order)
Supplements I am using:
- N.O. Xplode (preworkout)
- Cell Mass (taken right after last rep and before bed)
- 100% Whey Protein (30 min after cell mass after workout)
- CLA (figure it cant hurt in leaning me out)
My Diet (on a typical day):
-Granola bar for breakfast (CLA + Multivitamin)
- MRP bar for lunch (CLA)
- Workout at 3 (NO, Cellmass, Protein)
- Salad, Flax Crunch, Rice and grilled chicken (CLA)
- Protein shake around 7 or 8
- MRP bar around 11pm
- Cell mass right before bed
When I go through my day I realize I dont eat that much. After eating healthy and working out really hard I lost weight in lots of noticable places (face, upper body and i had to tighten my belt by 4 slots)
This weak core I have that is really stressing me out because I am so close to what I wanted when I started back up. I have considered taking a fat burner such as lipo and HOT-ROX just to aid in that one spot I cant seem to fix.
I am in college so i do drink beer but I have cut my consumption by more than half. I do not drink on the weekdays or sunday. I drink on friday and saturday and only drink beer. I usually only drink about 6 or 7. (Tell me if this still sucks…)
I feel real jacked just wearing a t-shirt or cut-off but when it comes down to taking my shirt off I dont feel good anymore. If someone could give me advice on how to fix this problem that would be very appreciated. Be open minded and give me anything (excercises, advice on fat burners…whatever)
