View Full Version : Ut ohs, I gained weight.

Figured it was tiem I start one of these.

Yup, every since I started working as a EMT my eatting habbits and training have been sacrificed somewhat. No more excuses, because when it comes down to me it is my fault. I was at a nice 205 with probably 14%BF before and now I'm at a weight of 230. I don't care about size anymore, more endurance and bodily apperance. It is hard to believe after UD 2.0 last summer I was at 182. Time to get my ass in gear. I'm not unhappy with my bobdy since I have muscle on my frame, but to know where I WAS and am now is a little depressing. I don't like the fat that went on my midsection and buttox :(

I'm on vacation starting today until next week on the 21st. The moment I get back I'm finding a place to do Muay Thai or some sort of fighting. Especially as my end of town gets worse with drug dealers popping up, there was just a raid last weekend in a apartment building near me. I will also be employing a higher rep weight scheme of 12-15 repitions with a mix of Crossfits WOD. I haven't quite figured out the schedule as I want to fit in Muay Thai or something else, I don't want to overdo it. I'm also going vary the weightlifting routine a lot. I love variation and I can't fit everything I want to do in one day :).

So on the 22nd it will all begin. The own asskicking of my body will commence and you can watch.

Comments/questions welcome.

Lol 12-15 reps, you've been here almost 2 years bro, what are you doing?

^something that will help him more in terms of his goals? Not everyone's looking to be a powerlifter.

Looking forward to keeping track of ur journal man, gl with getting it all on track!

If he wants to preserve LBM he will train with lower volume and heavier weight while decreasing calories and keeping protein high. High reps to get toned is a joke.

If that's why he's employing higher reps, then by all means, laugh, but I was under the impression that he wants to have more endurance.

I don't see what the problem is with repetitions higher than four. Good luck!

Who said anything about 4 reps?

I said 12-15 per exercise is laughable.

Not necessarily.

Lol Unholy you should know me better. This has nothing to do with preserving LBM, it is strictly for endurance and overall fitness. No toning, and I hate that word. I know looks come with diet. I've never been a "average" size, fat as a kid and bigger now because of heavy lifting and eatting too much, especially my bad diet as of late. I was 180 last year but I want to get smaller than that.

I love heavy lifting, I truley do, but I'd like to have more endurance in my muscles.
