so ive just challenged myself to lose some weight. got the next 2 weeks off work so im planning on really getting stuck into it.
this morning i rowed for 30 mins (nearly collapsing) and will do the same this arvo.... and every day for the next 2 weeks, from then on it will be once a day. will squeeze in 5+ games of golf (walking no buggies)
i guess one other important thing is input. im pretty fussy with food, not a big salad eater. what am i meant to eat?
any of you guys tackled this
ideally id like to lose 15kg total. take me back to 95 which is a good weight for me/height
there are three major type of mass in your body, fat, muscle and water.
the most effective way to loose weight is in fact watch what you eat. A healthy diet combined with a regular exercisers help you muscle to tone/or gain mass depends on which way you wanna go, burn fat and then lose excess water.
one particular muscle can only burn certain amount of energy before it needs to rest and repair, and overtrain DOES NOT Burn fat! My suggestion would be see a personal trainer and work out the best compound exercises for you, since everyone is different in terms of strength, endurance and etc, there are 4 major movements you need to work on, push pull squat and jump. the more muscle you use at each session the more energy your whole body would consume and therefore burning the most amount of fat on your body; and i'd say for a full compound and cardio you need no more than an hour each session. do a 1 day on 1 day off would ensure your body has enough time to recover from the muscle wear and tear, and remember while your muscle is recovering it STILL BURNS FAT!
in terms of diet, big breakfast (start with carbs), mild lunch (more salad, fruit and some carb), then small dinner but much more protein as your body will be fasting until the next meal (which is breakfast). drink lots of water, try to cut sugar and sodium (salt) out as much as you can. And most importantly, DO NOT EAT 3 hours before you sleep. and take supplements like multivitamin, they give you a lot of vital nutrients that daily intake of food is simply not enough.
I weighted 87kgs about 2 years ago, after a good diet plan drop down to about 78, but still mostly fat and water weight, been on a solid program for the past 4 month, weight is around 75 but most of it is now converted most into toned muscle.
My routine is a 4 day on 1 day off program, but my aim is a toned slightly buff body.
1. Chest / Triceps / some abs
2. Back / Bicep / some abs
4. Abs / cardio / compound
And one of the most import thing is body training is consistency. if you have a routine, stick with it. Your body will turn into a fat burning machine!!
