As of last week I was 5'10 and weighed 155 pounds. I'm a hardgainer and I've had a gut for as long as I can remember. I want to put more muscle on my arms and legs, but I want to do it without a gut.
The plan was to lose about 15 pounds over the next couple months before putting on 30. The hope was that by the time I got down to around 140 the gut would be gone or much less. I've been working out for the past two years and started doing more reps and less weight recently in hopes of keeping a fair amount of muscle and forcing most of my weight loss to come from the gut. The basic idea is try try and start with a clean slate and hope when I start gaining that the pounds come on proportionally.
I lost four pounds last week so I'm down to 151, although I realize the first few pounds are easy because it's water weight. I've basically been doing more cardio and eating less as well as a little more healthy. I've also started doing some ab exercises, which I hadn't done previously (could use some suggestions on this front).
I'm not going to worry about how I'm going to put on weight until later (more food/weight gainer/combination), but do I have the right idea so far for what I'm trying to accomplish?
Thanks in advance.
