Ok so back when I was 18 years old, I weighed in at 180lbs, when I was about 21 I was coming in at 210lbs, two years ago I was at 235lbs......and now I am sitting at 255lbs. Well its finally getting to me, my 29th birthday is in 7 days, and I need to drop this weight before my 30th birthday! I am not sure at what my final goal will be, but I need to drop at least 50lbs! So I signed up to the gym, but this time I did it with my girlfriend. We are planning to go at least 3 times per week, anyways this is my initial thoughts. Gym 3 Times Per week Day 1 = 30 minutes cardio, Weight train Arms (Bi, tri, fore) Day 2 = 30 minutes cardio, Weight train Chest and Back Day 3 = 30 minutes cardio, Weight train Legs, Shoulders and Stomach Rinse and repeat! Diet Week 1-3 = 90% of what I drink should be water Week 4-6 = Cut out all fast Food Week 6-9 = Cut out all extra's (dressings, mayo, bbq...etc) Now for the workouts, I figure maybe sitting down and coming up with 4 different excersises for each muscle group, and cycling between them on a 2 week schedule.....example..... Week 1 Biceps Concentration Curls Standing Alternating Dumbbell Curls Week 2 Biceps Preacher Curls Standing Barbell Curls Rinse and Repeat That way I am hitting each muscle group in a multitude of ways, I know that when I was hitting the gym before that I lost 15lbs in 3 weeks. Any suggestions?
