The other thing I am motivated by is when I am at the gym with my back turned to a girl, and she has her back turned to me, but I can see her reflection in the window in front of me, and I see her turn her head in the reflection so she can check me out while she THINKS I can't see her because my back is turned but nooooo honey I see you checking me out hahahaha.

Incline DB, 100s.

It's not that I couldn't gently lay them down, it's just pretty effin' hard on your body, and if they're rubber and hitting a rubber mat, who cares?

Completely agree. That would've REALLY pissed me off.

Was that your first compound chest/shoulders/tris workout? If not, that weight is really impressive for incline DBs, especially if your muscles are already tired.

Or does your height come with T-Rex arms?

(Sorry, had to)

Naw, I switch up my bench days between BB and Dumbbells. I do flat/rows with dbs, then incline/lat pulls. I do about 6 reps with the 100s and then 8 or so reps with the 50s in each set for incline. Depends on how my muscles are doing that day, the last set of inclines I might only do 5 with the 100s.

I've started jogging with my dog (going on my third or fourth week). Hard as hell to motivate myself out the door. Had to buy an mp3 player as incentive. I can only jog about half or so (3/4ths today, but that was new) of the 2 miles we go. Dog likes it, though it sucks when she suddenly stops to dart at a squirrel or to take a poo.

It's really difficult to find motivation to stay in shape. Those that have a routine or naturally find motivation to do so count yourself lucky. It's just not easy to do.

I've got a fairly large gut, and I've done some sit-ups everyday using an ab roller, but my love handles are the bad part, and I'm not sure the sit ups do much there. Any advice for a naturally lazy guy?

Waste of time.

Ingredients and concept are silly.

Preworkout, NO supps can be effective, but the recommended dosing is silly and the product is overpriced.

To be certain, I ran a search on bb.com

Results:
http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...t=force+factor

Edit: You're not ready for Supps beyond whey protein, anyways. Please keep this thread updated with your progress, or PM me if you're more comfortable that way. I'll be more than happy to take an even more pro-active role in your life-style, clayton.

Edit 2: You have my e-mail still, dip****.

I'd like to take a quick opportunity to remind you that cardio is for the heart and diet is for fat loss.

Running 5 miles is roughly the equivalent of only one healthy, low cal meal.

If your desire is heart health, please continue. If your goal is fat loss, please state so and there are several people here qualified to helping you adjust your diet to achieve your goal if your will power can match it.

Well, that's just poopy. I'm not sure I have the willpower (nor the cash) to really change my diet. I'm pretty much eating eggs in the morning and tuna and crackers at night. I don't really eat much I think (but the drinking might add the calories), but I wasn't getting any exercise for years. (Is eating less the same as dieting?).

(I think my problem is really just undiagnosed depression, hence lack of willpower. I thought exercise might get me out of the rut, but it hasn't yet, maybe I should just start popping and the willpower will start to follow).

I know I could read up on this stuff, but that takes will power, and the only motivation I've got is to dispense opinion on message boards (so sad!).

I'm not claiming a great deal of expertise, but if you listen to a couple simple words of advice, I think I could help you more than you realize at first read through.

First of all, avoid processed foods.

You'd be surprised the impact that alone can have on your life.

Secondly, you didn't mention a goal, but I'm going to guess it's fat loss.

So take your body weight, multiply by 1.2 and make that your caloric intake.

If you can follow those 2 steps alone, you'll be shocked by the dramatic body transformation you can make in a few months by following ONLY those steps.

Now... if you're more athletic than you seem to be from a couple message board posts:

Then increase your calorie intake, but try and change your macros to:

40 pro (minimum!)/40 carb/20 fat (remember 1g of pro/carb/fat = 4/4/9).

Try to take the bulk of your carbs in the morning, or immediately following a workout.

Also, weight training is amazing. It'll boost your metabolism by AT LEAST 10% if you train semi-properly to upwards of 20%. On top of that, for every lb of muscle you gain, you're increasing the caloric fuel it takes to run your body. Adding muscle is fairly easy for beginners.

Best wishes in achieving whatever your goals are.

Thanks for the advice, and yes, fat loss is the goal. One question, I don't quite get the above number distribution. Is that forty grams of protein, etc? Or calories, or what?

No, sir.

%.

Let's say you weigh 200 lbs.

200 x 12 (meant 12, not 1.2 in previous post) = 2400 calories a day

This is for fairly sedentary people... don't take offense by that, I just don't know your daily activity scale.

Now we take 2400 and break it down further:

% cals g's
Protein 40 960 240
Carbs 40 960 240
Fats 20 480 53.33333333
2400

Format screwed up.

You want:

240g's of protein a day
240g's of carbs a day (try and front load them as much as possible and avoid ANY in the evenings to night unless you're trying to bulk up muscle)
53g's of fat a day

Thanks, buddy. Is there a quick reference website that will tell me how much calories/protein an egg has, bacon has, a fresh potato has, etc? I only ask since you seem keen on helping people.

Yes.

It's on the carton of eggs.

The bacon container.

The sack of potatoes.

Etc.

Just be careful to read how much is in a serving and what a "serving" consists of. Try to be pro-active. When buying meats, buy extra lean meats or poultry. When you eat carbs, consuming fibrous carbs is great, complex is good in the morning, and simple can be effective post workout to spike your insulin levels to inject protein and complex carbs to your muscles, but otherwise should be avoided at a rookie level.

Because sit ups and crunches aren't very effective ab work outs to begin with, and BF % is more reflective of "abs" than anything else.

Squats and deads are amazing core workouts, though.

Oh brother ...

Nice losses though Clay, seriously ... you might be the biggest success story in here.


I gotta get going again .... looks like I'm gonna be single now again after 6 years ... it's tougher than I thought it would be. I'm having some real depressed moments.

Better jump back on that gym thing religiously, I know it'll help. Plus I'm back on Atkins, for June anyway ... no real losses yet, we'll see.
