  1. Here is a comparison pic. Summer 2018 Winter 2019 And 4th of July this year. Don’t judge. I’m not a tank top guy, but it was the 4th and we just stayed home, so I didn’t mind being a fat guy in a muscle shirt. Haha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. So I’m stuck and don’t know what mistakes I’m making. Please help [emoji24] So I was 323 lbs In dec 2018, by dec 2019 I was 221. On my one year mark I changed gears and decided I wanted to focus less on cardio and more on weight lifting. I started eating more (still healthy, but went back to 3 meals a day from only one big one). Instantly I gained 25lbs. Understandable, I ate one meal a day for a year, I knew it was not gonna stay that way. But here it is July, 8 months later, and I’m still 245. I do 30 min of cardio and 45 min of weights in the morning, and 3 or 4 days a week I go back in th
  3. Thanks for all the replies. Just getting caught up here. Quick question, and this is not sarcastic, but squats do not count as a hip moving exercise? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Thank you. I appreciate all your advice. I’m proud I was able to stick to losing the weight, but not so much proud of the number, it just signifies how much I let myself go. The big accomplishment for me was getting to the gym 365 days straight. At hotels, on vacation. The only time I missed entering a gym was Disney, but we were actively walking 20k steps a day, so that in itself was doubling my “move” goal. Not that it’s working out per say, but I don’t discredit the extra activity. I have since put 15 back on, but I don’t believe it’s fat. When I was losing weight I was doing strict fas
  5. Thank you! Like I enjoy it, I leave the gym and want to go back. Days like today where I only got 10 min in seemed pointless. Like I set myself back, or wasted and opportunity. My biggest concern is am I over doing it? Rest is key, I know this, muscles need time to rebuild, but the hard part for me is trying to convince myself that I need more rest. I feel like when I add rest days I’m just giving myself an excuse to not lift weights. I felt good enough to lift weights, I want to but “it’s my rest day”. I just don’t want to look back in a year and add up all my rest days and say I could b
  6. Ugh. Daughter has the flu, didn’t get home from the Dr. till 11 last night, slept through my 3:45 alarm, didn’t wake up till 5. Walked in the gym at 5:15, 10 min of cardio and back home. No slack. Guess I am taking a rest day like you guys suggested today anyway [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks! From a time frame, 45 min is really the most I can fit in the morning, I usually wake up between 3:45 and 4 to be at the gym by 420 or so, and try to be heading home by 5:10 to get to work. So I try to hit it as hard as I can while I’m there to take full advantage. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thank you for the replies! I know it’s overkill. Like I said, I really just want to take full advantage of my “intro” to building muscle. I have always heard the beginning is when your body can make the biggest changes. I’m not tired, I’m not exhausted, I don’t feel extremely sore. But I leave feeling achieved. Covered in sweat and ready to get after it. To kinda touch on both of your points. I do 50 squats a day, just simple 35 lbs at 5x 10reps. I usually do each set between my normal workouts. IE: bench 10 reps do 10 squats bench 10 more do 10 more squats. Etc. I kinda use it as my res
  9. Hey all. Just registered and wanted to ask some questions without doing it all in my “welcome” post. First of all. PLEASE, critique me. Tell me what I’m doing wrong, what I need to do, etc. I don’t have a big head (atleast it’s smaller than it use to be) Anyway. Dropped 100lbs last year as a goal I wanted to accomplish. Did 99% cardio, now I want to start building muscle. I honestly don’t care too much about getting ripped or cut, or having amazing abs, I just want to “bulk up” without “fattening up”. I really just want to be big without being fat anymore. I want my shirts to be fille
  10. So I went on a year long journey to try to meet my goal of losing 100lbs of fat. Ended up hitting -101 at the 362 day. (Kinda went overboard the last few weeks to make it happen) anyway. It was 99% cardio (I know, should have done weights too, but wanted to lose as much as possible as fast as possible) Now I’m switching gears to 99% weight training and little cardio. I do 10 min cardio warm up, usually 1 min uphill sprints followed by 1 min up hill walk, then 30-40 min of just weights. I feel like I am over doing it a little, but I know the first few months or year is your opportunity to g
