So I'm 17, and I've been working out for about a month and a half. I want to target stomach weight (lovehandles, tummy) and chest (manboobs).
I've only lost about 2-3lbs over the span of my working out even though I cut out almost all junk foods and had a strict workout plan.
Don't know much else I can do, so I'll just post what I do here, and ask for some suggestions.
Mon, Wed, Fri:
5min Warm up + Stretches
Some dumbbell workouts with 12lb/15lb weight
Some workouts with my weight machine (benchpress, pulldown, butterfly)
20min jog/run on treadmill/elliptical
Tues, Thurs, Sat:
5min warm up + strecthes
Some ab excercises (crunches, pushups, burpies, leg ups)
15mins of HIIT on treadmill/elliptical
Rest day from workout, not from diet
I try to eat 3-5 meals a day, but its hard since I workout in the morning and am out pretty much the rest of the day. I've cut soft drinks and juice straight out of my diet, and drink water with every meal except breakfast. With breakfast I drink skim milk or on occasion orange juice. I've also stopped eating fast foods on a regular basis, and mostly eat home made **** now. Once or twice a week I will however eat some type of junk food (ribs, pizza, fries) because I live at home and work at a movie theatre and have no real choice of what to eat otherwise, with those meals however I try to eat smaller portions and drink water with them. During the day I drink about 4-5L of water a day..
In the next week or so, I am cutting out machine workouts, since I am buying a dumbbell set and will be doing various dumbbell workouts on my weight days only. I will also be drinking an afterworkout protein shake after every workout.
My number 1 priority is losing weight, I will worry about gaining muscle after, but at this point all I want to do is lose my weight.
I'm 5'11 and I sit at about the 180lbish range.
