Me being an out of shape fat ass decided to go into the gym yesterday and lift some weights.
for the average out of shape fat ass, it is much easier and faster to lose weight cutting out 600 calories a day from your diet than it is to burn 600 calories a day working out.
Me being an out of shape fat ass decided to go into the gym yesterday and lift some weights. I went very light. Just the bar, then 50 lbs., then 60 and then 70. Tried to do some inclines, but my bum shoulder wouldn't allow it. Then I went to bicep curls, not sure what I did, but nothing crazy, four sets. Then onto triceps, pretty light, four sets. Did some leg presses and extensions as well. Did about twenty minutes on the bike and then took a swim and hit the hit tub.
Holy crap on a cracker! PAIN!!!!!! So this morning I took two vicodins, four aspirin and icy/hot. Still in, OMG why are you punishing me mode! What I don't get is Vicodin is good enough for knee surgery, why does this hurt like hell?
Was going to do back and stomach today. Didn't for fear of complete incompacitation. Will go back tomorrow and work chest and arms again. Once I can deal with morning after, then I'll start up with abs and back. Should have gone back today. At the very least to stretch me out, but seriously, ain't gonna happen!
being in the dickie-do club.
Good luck. Don't quit...
Eat whole chickens and lots of pasta.
I lost 35 lbs this deployment by eating right (ish), staying out of the beer, and lots of cardio, squats, and lunges. I need to do more ab stuff...flutterkicks, planks, and situps. I hate situps but I gotta get better so I can stay in the next 7 years to get to 20!
We're getting back tomorrow. I hope I can stay in it and not just eat and drink my way back to 230...
Don't forget to stretch guys, even in between reps, I would make sure to get some stretches in.
I haven't worked out in years, but I try to do pull ups and pushups everyday and do a few quick stretches before work in the morning.
First day back after a long break is always going to hurt.
Hard to find a woman who will do this with me in my current state of fat-asseryWaste of time acstorfer..
The only press ups worth doing are under the bed sheets..
Much more fun.. Far more enjoyable.. And you don't get injured in the process.
I'm no expert, but I've recently lost nearly 60 lbs and my journey has taken close to 6 1/2 months. The biggest thing you should be doing is committing to a lifestyle change. No thinking of it being a 'diet' or being a chore to 'hit the gym' it's got to become a way of life.
I was 327 at 6'4. I'm lucky I didn't have any diabetes or high blood pressure, or any other major issues.
It was a simple transition, I walked on the treadmill for 45 minutes 5 days a week for about 1 month, lost 15 lbs the first month, the second month I ramped it up to light weights and joined Weight Watchers.
I'm not going to bore you with the details, but essentially, I'm jogging 2 miles now and have added weight training, some boxing and some core/plyometrics to my schedule.
You have to find out what works for you, without injuring yourself. I'm now 267 and I don't plan to ever be this heavy again, my goal is to lose 110 lbs and get to 220. It's not a goal, it's a committment, and I am invested into this lifestyle.
Plus, I look a little cooler playing a guitar without being in the dickie-do club.
Good luck. Don't quit...
Don't forget to stretch guys...
