If you want to try anyway, you're not going to do that eating -500cal below maintenance. That's a lb a week, so unless you're doing mad cardio (even then tbh), you're gonna find it hard.
Well, I don't exactly know how much I need to lose to get to where I want to be. I've gained about 10lbs the last few months but I expect that to be from the gym. I've really picked up since late July. I want to lose stomach fat. My chest has gained a more muscley tone over the last few months so I can manage that. I really just want to lose the fat. I don't have a huge gut by any means and when I wear most hoodies, jerseys, etc. you'd never expect me to have one. I'll take a hit in muscle if I must, just nothing too significant. I can easily work that back up. My main thing is just my thighs and stomach.

Well you can't choose where the fat comes off, so just eat at your current defecit, take in plenty of protein, lift heavy and in 6 weeks you'll have made some positive progress. 20lb of fat is a lot for the average person though; even losing 4-5lb is noticable.

Alrighty, kewl. That's certainly doable in 6 weeks right?

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I figure you guys are the ones to ask:

I am about 150 lbs, 5'7ish. I'm pretty damn skinny, but am lacking in strength. I was wondering what you guys would suggest for gaining muscle, specifically upper body/abs.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Sort your diet out, and begin on Starting Strength.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

how would you suggest I sort my diet? I've never had the greatest idea on how to do balance it.

I apologize for my ignorance, definitely not my field of expertise.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

+500 cals to your maintenance (14 x bodyweight rough guess), 1 lb protein per 1 lb of bodyweight, decent amount of healthy fats (nuts, fish etc). Varied but consistently above maintenance.

Then do Starting Strength and you'll get results.

Someone can go into more detail than this, but I'm kind of busy right now.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Hit the gym today and did 30 minutes of cardio (treadmill, 2+ miles, 320 cals on varied speeds) which I've done the last three days. Did REALLY well last week and lost roughly 3lbs. Had a bad weekend, but since Monday I've been excellent. Gym/Cardio Tuesday, Cardio yesterday, and then ofc Gym/Cardio today. Feel good about about myself.
