OP asked how to lose it not alternatives to the gym that are just as great lol. Jogging/running in real life on the ground or treadmill is terrible for your joints and keeps your legs small.

I didn't give alternatives to the gym that are just as great lol, I gave a few cardio modalities which are better than the elliptical.

If you're using any type of cardio besides cycling for leg hypetrophy, you already lawst. :ufdup:


And hey, at least you're making threads about non-emo shyt even if it's clear you're not about that physical activity life.

Cool. :ehh:

Lil nikka trying to be lean, fill out my shirts. Not trying to look like the rock nor the thing. I go to the gym everyday, today will be day 6. I did cardio for the last two days.
Hitting the weights again and etc.

Still so much to learn. :francis:

Got a consult done and learned I wasn’t eating enough. Budddy told me to aim for 1800 cals and just to start lifting. Currently on week 3 of this. I’m 30 for reference. My girl already noticing a change. :myman:

Well if he’s in a calorie deficit then we won’t be building muscle. The impact of that post workout burn is overrated from what I read/see. Not enough to try to account for it anyway.

You are right in that you can't or shouldn't account for it.

Think of it like putting whatever change you have, get, find, into a jar. You wouldn't look at your checking and savings and into your wallet then think "oh yeah, the change jar!"

Multiple times I've charted out 30 days of exercise, with a goal of burning 7000 calories per week, that's 2lbs. And ate on target every day.

Although the goal hasn't been the same overtime, sometimes it was 8lbs, sometimes 6lbs. Using my heart rate watch with the strap, I've always come out ahead.

So when my target was 35,000 calories for the month (10lbs) I might have come in at 12, when it was 8 I might have come in at 9 or 10, when it was 6 I might have come in at 7, or 8.

Excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (epoc) is real.

I say "don't count on the change in the jar" but often times I've said "fukk it" and had an extra meal, because I knew when I was on target that I was a little ahead.

You change as you get older. Get used to it. Besides the gym you should look for other activities you enjoy. I supplement gym/peloton days with hiking. Before covid I was getting into wall climbing. I even do yoga now. If you have a heart monitor, you'll be surprised how many calories you can burn in a session. Get some diabetic cookbooks and find some go to meals and snacks you can make. Portion everything out. Even if you like almonds as a snack, go by serving size. Keep at it and don't give up. Even if the weight isn't coming off as you like, it's still important as you get older to keep physically active for your mind and body.

Do a specific workout for about a month or two. Then as it gets easier gradually progress

That program is hot :trash: but at least you're doing something I suppose. :manny:

And 1800 calories? You must be scrawny as hell or a BBM (:dame:). :patrice:

What’s trash about it? It’s a show and steady approach

Literally all of it. Exercise selection, order, volume, weekly frequency. shyt, you're doing sets of one for some exercises. :snoop:

And being a "slow and steady" approach doesn't make something good, optimal, or even viable.

If you really care what I think, go see me in the Random Thoughts thread and I can put you on to a much better program.

Pro-tip: Most of the programs from M&S are :trash: .

You sound like me breh. Sept 2019 I was at 235. By December I was at 218. March 2020 I was at 187. Covid hit and I got up to 205. Then my schedule changed drastically and I got back up to 220. Now I'm back at 205.
Once you notice you're slipping it's too late.
