@ericgautier I agree. You will lose more fat and overall be more pleased with a lifting focused physic. Also, Myfitnesspal is a fantastic app to get a person on the right eating habits.

Something often overlooked; male testosterone levels are as much as 50% greater in the morning. Work out in the a.m.

Merry Christmas y’all. Keep moving in the right direction! 😁
Need to get looking as sharp as I can for my wedding in May.
Congratulations! :)

If that's not enough motivation, I don't think there will be anything to motivate you to stay in the gym for 5 months. :thumbup:

I've seen some mention of training splits and such, and figured I'd throw in my 2 cents on what's worked for me... I've been big into lifting since high school, and I'm 32 now. Up until about 3 months ago, I'd do Chest/Tri, Back/Bi, and tons of other combinations over the years. Life has gotten especially busy, and I wasn't able to keep as regular of a gym schedule. So, I switched to doing a full body workout every time I go to the gym (ideally 3 days a week now). Because of this, missing 1 day doesn't mean skipping that muscle group for 2 weeks, as I was doing when I did more of the traditional split and had to miss a day. I've actually seen some muscle gain/fat loss doing this, which I was surprised by, as I thought I'd just be "maintaining" with this method. I weighed 220 with about 18% body fat before switching to this, and am about 215 now, with a bit more muscle.

Dr Jim Stoppani is a big proponent of this - he has a handful of YouTube videos where he talks about the reasoning and science behind it - definitely worth looking into.

Someone also mentioned Dr Jason Fung, who I'm also a big fan of. I'm not a reader, but I've watched hours and hours of his YouTube videos and interviews. I came across him a couple years ago, and have since been doing a 3-4 day fast every few months. Tons of benefits to doing this, aside from a bit of fat loss, so definitely worth looking into as well...

I need to get back on the wagon. I have been stalled at 230 lbs since before Thanksgiving. Life and work has made it hard to keep up with things, and my discipline sucks.

Planning on being a resolutionist and get started again with lifting and cutting after the first of the year. Need to get looking as sharp as I can for my wedding in May.
I’ve been stuck in the 223-225 range since my 220.6 weigh-in. Still fuming but been lazy on cardio and eating WAY too much garbage. Gotta get my diet dialed back in and I’ll be down again. I’ve definitely felt the lack of energy and feeling bad from the food.

I’ve hit some decent PRs in squat and deadlift during this time so O gotta imagine it will keep getting better as i dial back in

@Hoosier 3-4 day fast? I thought my 24hr fasts were long!

@PHXCobra Not lifting for any more than 1 week I feel that lack of physical and mental energy. What are you 6'? Get that diet back on track man!

I’m 5’10”. It’s getting back. Got rid of all of the cookies and candy in the house. Back to the vertical diet it is.

Lifting and cardio will definitely be a part of my weight loss. Just have to buckle down and get it all going. I have a decent home gym setup. Power rack, rogue fitness barbell, flat bench, deadlifting platform, and about 600 lbs of weight. For cardio, I have a mountain bike and a road bike, with an indoor trainer for those gross wet days. Don't care much for the indoor trainer, though.

I know all the things I "should" be doing, its just the doing them part that is tough. lol

I’ve been lifting weights for 20 years and competitively powerlifting for 15 years. Lawn care is just another addiction to add to the list!

That's awesome! Any tips on how to maintain strength while trying to lose fat?

I would focus on one or the other. Certain lifts are going to lose strength no matter what because of leverage changes as you lose weight. If fat loss is the promary goal, don’t let the muscle loss deter you. It’ll come back once you’re done losing what you want and get used to your new leverages.

3 years ago i was 300lbs and decided i would start losing weight. Kept eating whatever i wanted so long as i didnt pass my calories for the day. Started at 3500 then 3k then 2500 then 2k. Over 16 months i got down to 168. I wanted to lose the weight slowly as i have never met someone who lost a ton of weight quickly on xyz fad diet and kept it off long term. At the same time i started dieting i began weightlifting. I lift 1 hour in the morning 5 or 6 days a week. Dropped down to 168 then bulked up to 195. Dropped to 175 then recently hit 195 again and just started a new cut June 1st. Took body scan at 195 and was at 15% body fat i am hoping to eventually get to 10% bf @190lbs or so but that is likely years away.

^ this is spot on. :thumbsup:

Figure out what your maintenance calories are and if you want to lose weight, stay below that.
