Down 35lbs since January. My main goal is to keep building my chest and tightening my abs as well as cutting a few extra lbs to kind of clean up my stomach area because there's still fat there I'd like and need to cut. Currently at 161lbs.
I've decided to bulk up a bit before cutting. Im at 5'10, 177lbs. Starting using creatine again. Do you guys recommend mixing it with fruit juice or just drink it with water, and then eat a banana, oatmeal something high in carbs?
Any good workouts for building muscle when you can't go to the gym and pick up some weights? I have a machine at home, is that suitable? It has a ton of positions and such.
Also, MXC what did you do to lose that? I have a similar belly and have been trying to lose it. I run on the treadmill for 45 minutes a day and in the morning and night do a few sets of crunches, push ups, etc. Basic stuff.
One of my main problems is I can't really decide what I eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Its whatever is made as I'm starting my first year of college this year, and still live at home. I do snack a lot and have a few too many sodas lol. So subbing those with a piece of fruit would probably help a lot.
I run for 20 minutes straight on the tread mill; usually burning around 500 calories, then stop for 30 seconds, hit 3 variants of crunch machine - usually equaling 300-400 situps - 20x reps, then generally end on the bike machine, rowing machine or working on my legs. I hit gym Tuesday, Weds, Thursday without fail and run or hit gym again on the weekend! My gym is now part of my life, as soon as I finish work I hit it, that way not gone home and changed, or rest, I just honestly carry on like it's a daily thing.
