I haven't lifted in ages, but I swing a claymore around every so often. I'm planing on getting back in the gym hardcore, but I don't want to set my goals too high.

I have no idea what my bf% is or anything like that, so I turn to you experts to gather your opinion on what I could make out of this large blob.

Sorry about the pics as these are the only ones I have, taken about 2-3 weeks ago.

I'm thinking I should focus on cutting and losing weight first, but so much has changed in 7 years that I don't know what is what anymore. I need help! :)
Any advice is greatly appreciated, along with some software to help track calories and other stuff like that.

if you want u can use fitday.com to track your calories or i just weight things and track them like that. i certainly would suggest a good cut get that bf% right down then do a slow bulk. all the info you could possibly need for dieting down is in the diet section so look in ther and use the search button anything else ask in their and ull get all the adfvice u need and more.

hard to tell bf%, but definitely over 20%.

www.bodyrecomposition.com is a great resource for dieting information.

Your a big guy. :thumbup: Good place to start from! I wouldn't "cut", but I would clean up the diet a bit while your lifting.

yeah, whats with the massive sword?

i would clean up the diet alot, lift heavy weight with a touch of cardio.

you could do a small bulk to get your strength up then cut.

just some suggestions.

Heh. You wouldn't believe how many people comment on the claymore. Basically, I swing it around in my underwear cause it's hot where I live and clothes get sticky. :) I practice with it to at least have some physical activity.

So, seeing the comments on the sword, I took some regular pictures in my briefs to have a "before" look, but I am kinda (read:really) ashamed at how I look. I really am a fat***. :(

your a naturally big guy as am i, and its great for putting on size but sucks for getting lean. But as a begginer as you are, just clean that diet up get in the gym (a minimum of 3-4 times a week) and in 3 months and you should have melted away most the fat and get a good base of muscle to really turn it up from there.

lift big, eat clean.

if you want to lose lbs, lift light weight + cardio + diet = road to dedication/success.


im a big man myself, prob over 20% bf too. i been lifting for 4 months, semi-clean diet (due to cheat days), and taken few supplements to get where im at. people told me i "lost weight" when i didnt at all. i weighed 200lb back then, and now im around 197lb which isnt enough to notice. muscle mass > fat
