Upupdate On Weight Loss And Working Out

Recommended Posts

Well I gained back 15lbs to 280 over the christmas and new years holidays. Im so ashamed. However its coming off quick. I dropped 10 lbs last week. :) I have readjusted my goals. Im shooting for 235 by May. Im also hoping to hit 3% body fat by that time. Its gonna be a helluva fight but im gonna try my best to make it. Supplements have mostly stayed the same. Im cycleing off for 4 weeks at the end of January and starting my cut and estrogen blockers for that four week period before cycling back on for 12 weeks. Its going to be my longest cycle and am hoping for great things. According to my doctor ive discovered the perfect mix to increase hormone levels and increase fat loss. Im so proud of myself. All my research and trial and error is actually paying off.

Now as for working out. Let me say I am a freaking BEAST. My one rep maxs and increases are as follows. My bench press has gone from 315 in october to 385 as of today. Power cleans have gone from 330 to 420. My leg press has gone from a 3 rep max of 900 up to 1100. Those are the only maxs I do. So yeah I feel great about my progress. Plus I have lost 50lbs since october. Its amazing what hard work will do for you.

You make me sick, lol

I went to a gym and told the female personal trainer I wanted the body of a god. She told me her work was done, I already looked like a fat Buddha!

So when my wife said I needed to get in shape, I informed her that round was a shape!

Seriously though good job, and good luck in meeting your goals.

Great Job RNF! I myself just joined a gym for the first time in my life. I have been watching what I eat and trying to stay as active as possible, I have a desk job so sitting in front of a computer all day lends itself to a shape of round. Well since my start in 2011 I have lost 78lbs, I have another 22lbs to go. I am hoping with a conservative weight lifting routine that I will be able to drop those last lbs and start to add some muscle as well. Here is to reaching goals in 2013.

I hear that. Congrats on joining your first gym. The best advice I can offer are these four things. First know that just getting to the gym is over half the battle. You have to push yourself to go sometimes. I still do. Its easy to say "Aww Ill just skip today and hit it hard tomorrow" then the next thing you know you havent been in two weeks.

Focus on your form. Forget heavy weights. Work with light weights until you get your form down. Using bad form is extremely counter productive to what you are trying to accomplish, and will not get you the results you are after. It can also get you hurt. Block everything else out of your mind and focus on the muscles you are working and the form you are using.

Stick to weights you can handle. Your not there to impress anyone else. Your there to improve your health, well being, and body. Lifting more than you can handle is counter productive and can cause injuries.

Lastly, dont get discouraged over how other people look and be self conscious. Everyone was just starting out once. Also everyone is usually so focused on what they are doing that they are not looking at how other people in there look.

One more lastly. Dont get discouraged over weight loss and weight gain. If you are lifting then your going to gain muscle as well as lose fat. Lean muscle weighs more than fat does. Take measurements of your body and only weigh once a week. You will be suprised how much difference that can make, when you can actually see your progress as opposed to a number on a scale.

Have fun with it and enjoy it. If there are any questions you have or help I can give you just ask me, and I will help you to the best of my abilities.
