Ok, Hi everyone and thanks for taking a look at my post here. I'm 30, Male and 19 stone and wanting to become fit and healthy and respect my body after years of neglect. I guess i have known for years what the right thing to do is but neglected the idea. I have tried dieting and working out but it all goes tits up at the weekend, but not this time..
I'm 6 foot, big built with broad shoulders and already have muscular looking shoulders and arms. ALthough i'm 19 stone iv'e seen other people who are my height and might be 19 stone or less and look loads bigger than me, but no doubt about that i do have a huge stomach which needs to be burnt away. My legs are quite large in muscle but i suppose they would be moving my weight about.
I would like to achieve a healthy body by sticking to my exercise and correct food eating. I would like to aim for a toned muscular body, i'm not necessarily looking to bulk up and become worlds strongest man as i dont want the absolute huge look, but big is ok.
5 meals a day, usually eaten within 3 hours gap, with 2 litres of water a day min, i totally gave up fizzy drinks and chocolate, i could easily guzzle down a 2 litre and a 4 pack of chocolate bars in one night. total abuse.
6 egg whites 1 yolk boiled and bowl of porridge with blueberries
225g Chicken Breast grilled, half broccoli head
Tuna Sandwich whole can on wholemeal, TBS Mayo
Protein whey powder (30-40g)
225g Chicken Breast grilled, the other half of the broccoli
Im basing my exercise off a few things, one is a program called TSC heart of a champion, this is what i do
Monday; (legs), lunges, squats, Calf raises
Tuesday: (cardio), Run 2 minutes, 1 minute rest, x8 (24 mins)
Wednesday: (Torso), DB Row, DB Bench press, DB incline press, DB pecfly and pushups
Thursday (cardio) same as above but trying to run 3 minutes, 1 minutes rest and other combinations
Friday: (arms), rear delt raise, db side raise, db shoulder press, seated db tricep extend, incline db tri-ext, flat db tri-ext, db pro curls, db hammer curls
Saturday: (cardio) same as above really finding slight improvement as i go
Sunday: (rest) but last week i ran anyway and did really well and didnt feel tired. Eat ,Sleep, Drink It.
Why am i here:
Well i would love to hear your opinions and see if you could give me better advice as im not sure im doing the best thing for my body even with these changes. Like the running for example, i seen on a tv show that running for 2 minutes then taking a break for 1 minute and repeating 8 times will burn fat for longer after you stop exercising, or should i be running for as long as i possibly can. I did try that about a year ago, i went out running regular for about a month but just kept running til i ran out of breath and managed to get up to 4.5 mile, but back them i wasnt eating the right foods. I realise now that eating the right foods is 65% of the diet, but im not sure if i should be eating less or more.
I very first started at the beginning of the month and weighed in at 19.4ish stone and now its been 12 days and i am 18stone 12pound. I know this doesnt happen over night and the dedication is there. Am i doing the right thing?
Thank you for reading
