Freezing cold 2 miler last night at dark. I haven't been that cold since Marine Corps training in the Sierra Nevadas back in '89. Good grief. Hurts the lungs...but feels good afterwards.

Well I didnt get to the gym today (probably because I dont have a membership yet HA) BUT I did burn some calories man handling an air handler into a small closet today. So I guess you could say I worked bis, tris, legs and back lol.

Iím in, lost 100 lbs last year. Went from 310+ down to 210. Did gain 3-5 pounds over the holidays and hunting season not working out as much and not eating as well. My goal this year is to get down to 190 and run at least a half marathon. Waiting for the ďResolutionĒ rush to end at the gym and hitting it back hard next Monday.

My daughters boyfriend founds some stuff with 450 grams of caffeine in it. He's saving me a scoop.

Sounds like you might just need a stim holiday for a couple of weeks.

I'm still at it 5 days a week. Deer season is almost over then I'll be back to 6 days a week, 3 days cardio 3 days strength training with more focus on cardio. If all goes well I'll be elk hunting in September so all my training over the summer will be focused on that. I'm right around 175-178 lbs and not looking to change my weight up or down, just hard work and trying to be in the best shape possible.

The heaviest I ever remember stepping on the scales at was 310 but I know I was some where north of that at one period of time just looking back at pictures. I started trying to lose weight two years ago when my son was born telling myself I was going to be the fat Dad. I maybe lost 15 pounds. Then when his Mom and I separated at the beginning of last year I started using exercise as my escape. Iím a HVAC tech and the majority of my meals came through a drive through since I practically live out of my van in the summer. I cut out fast food completely. Stopped all sugary drinks, even sweet tea which was tough. Really cut out bread almost entirely. If I do eat it itís for breakfast like a breakfast taco or something at the beginning of my day. Itís truly amazing how ďeating cleanĒ gives you so much more energy for your day and workouts. I usually have a protein and vegetables for lunch. Mainly salads but I like salads. Instead of candy if I have a craving for something sweet I eat fruit. I work out every day I donít have my son which is anywhere from 3-5 times a week. Started out with running 3-5 miles a week but was up to 25-30 by the end of summer. After I run I go work out lifting weights for another 45 minutes or so. I weigh myself every day though. I use that number in the scale as a daily reminder that maybe you donít need that double cheeseburger that youíre craving haha. My before and after so far Name:  IMG_0349.JPG

Another good day, but didn't get to finish what i wanted to do. Too many resolutioners camping out on equipment.

Shoulders and legs (hammies). Lateral raises/prone leg curl, front raises/crunches (weighted), dumb bell press/prone leg curl/rear delt cable pulls.

No deadlift today thank to the campers. Maybe tomorrow. Definitely will be a bi's and tri's day.

Great job and keep up!!!


Hit legs today. Having some SI joint issues so no squats. Decided to do some super sets.

10 x 15 on Seated leg curls/Leg press
4 x 15 Seated calve raises and Laying leg curls

Abs

Super set of oblique twist/oblique crunches

Finished of with lots of stretching. Either my hip flexors, Psoas or Piriformis is acting up. I could feel the misalignment of my hips while doing the leg press.

Tomorrow is shoulders, back and arms.

Do you actually gain, or are you just able to see?

Loaded 2980# of scrap metal over the past couple days. Not sure this counts for anything other than showing how out of shape I've gotten after taking off the past couple months. I knew I wouldn't be working out once the time changed and hunting season got started good. I decided on the Athlean-X program for my next workout. Got it ordered this evening and plan to start next week. I haven't gained any weight since I stopped working out, but my chest has settled to my waist. Gotta get things back where they should be so I can wear a 2 piece this summer.

Sounds like a fair trade off. I only need to lose about 5 pounds so is there an incremental increase in relation to weight loss?

Arm day today. Elbow wasn't hurting so I trashed them while I had the chance. barbell curl/hanging leg raises/tricep pushdown (pronated and supinated), preacher curl/ab roller/weighted dips, over head rope extensions/overhead cable curl. Ran out of time or I would have added hammer curl bar and tricep kickbacks.

Monday I'll be going back to a 10X10 routine MWF and large muscle group split on TT. Gotta lose that 5 pounds so i can gain that .25 inches icetrauma posted.

Dead lift
Good mornings
Leg extensions
Leg curls
Wall sits

Ok today was the start of another journey. After being a slacker for the two months before Christmas(only hitting the gym 2x week) and then taking the last two weeks off completely, I am officially a fat ***. I havent been anywhere near this heavy in about 5-7 years ago. I hit the scales this morning at the the gym at 197.8 lbs and 25.2% BF. I have to say I wasnt shocked as my clothes have been letting me know this was getting out of hand. I want to get 10-12 lbs off and reduce that BF% down to 17-18% as that is where a 54 year old man should be naturally. Im hoping getting back into the gym 5-6 times a week(4 minimum) will get this new found blubber off in relatively short order.

Today was 10 minute warm up, a little over an hour of chest lifts, about 15 minutes of abs and 12 minutes stretching in the dry sauna. I have to admit it was a struggle but I got it done. It is absolutely amazing at my age how hard it is to get results and how fast they change when you stop adhering to the program.

Good luck to everyone again this year and to you new guys, stay with it. The results may be slow but if you eat right and exercise, people wont recognize you in a year and will be complimenting you none stop. Just think, 1lb a week may not seem like much but it is 52 lbs in a year!

Signed up for Anytime Fitness today. I hate gyms. But the work discount and the biking distance from home was a big plus. Now to figure out what I'm doing. I need a full body workout that I can do about 3 times a week. Cardio will be trail running and/or treadmill mixed in with some mountain bike rides.

Any suggestions for an easy to follow workout using circuit machines and some free weights? Thanks.

Depending on what machines the have for a full body workout, just run through the circuit.

Lower

Squats or Leg Press Machine
Leg extensions
Leg curls - seated and laying
Calve raises - most machines in a circuit are standing

Upper

Chest Press
Shoulder Press
Lat pull downs
Rows
Triceps extensions
Biceps curls - most places only have a preacher curl machine

Machines will limit you.

For a free weight program, I would recommend Stronglifts 5x5 or Starting Strength for starting off. It hits all the big groups, is easy to follow and not any fluff. It's an upper/lower body split done in 3 days.


This is the Stronglift program and you alternate workouts A and B. https://stronglifts.com/5x5

Workout A: Squat 5◊5, Bench Press 5◊5, Barbell Row 5◊5
Workout B: Squat 5◊5, Overhead Press 5◊5, Deadlift 1◊5

Example

Week 1
Mon/Fri - workout A
Wed - workout B

Week 2
Mon/Fri - workout B
Wed - workout A

And repeat.

Not sure of how tall you are but machines are really good for us taller folks.

Thanks icetrauma!

First of all, what does your username mean? Were you skating on thin ice as a kid and fall through?

Second, thanks for the great info. I appreciate it. Good stuff.

I am 5-9 and 220 lbs and according to the insurance company I am obese. I have a 32 inch waist but a bunch of muscle mass that adds the weight. The BMI is a load of crap in my opinion, insurance company doesn't want to give me life policy because of it.

I am going to focus on goals this year instead of the scale or the mirror.

I want to hit a 350 bench and 500 dead, I don't squat heavy because I have a bad back but I want to build on that as well.

5.2 miles in the park today in about a hour ten. Can definitely tell I took hunting season off. Legs were struggling that last mile. My gym is stupid busy this afternoon. Probably going to start doing morning workouts for the next month till it slows back down.
