Hey there.. How is everyone? I have been lurking for about a week now and this seems to be a cool place.
I am 5'8" 289lbs(down from 333lbs since I got back into the swing of things) I used to weigh almost 400lbs at one time.
Hey whats up. Congradulations on your already tremendous weight loss, thats quite and accomplisment.
Wow thats some good work. What is your goal weight?
Nicely done on the weight loss.. overall loss of ~111lbs. Very impressive
My goal right now is getting down to 250 while still keeping my strength and size which I have done quite well considering how much weight I have dropped.
I would like to be a lean 180-185lber but have no clue what my LBM is right now because I haven't gotten my body fat % tested yet.
Just stay determined, eat healthy and get a good routine going. With the right mind set you can definitelly do it.

Nice, we have the same goal i want to be about 185-190ish but im goin the other way. Whats your routine as of now?
Right now my routine is:
Day 1- Chest, triceps
Day 2- Back, Calves, Abs
Day 3- Rest
Day 4- Shoulders, Biceps, Traps
Day 5- Upper legs
Sets/reps is also all by feel also. I usually do about 7-8 working sets for big muscles and 5-6 for smaller ones.. I think my shoulders and arms recover alot faster than my chest and back so sometimes I will hit them again on the weekend with a quick workout.
Cardio is done 3-4 days per week, anything more than that and I feel like I am doing more harm than good as far as keeping muscle/strength and losing fat.
Eating 6 clean meals per day and getting between 250-300 grams of protein per day. I know my body so well now that I never count calories anymore, I go by how I feel. I wouldn't be a very good personal trainer, I hate numbers :evillaugh
I do pretty good by doing things this way, I have dropped almost 50lbs since starting back up and my strength hasn't gone down much at all.
I have thought about getting on Clen to further my progress, but I am not too sure about it yet.
What is your routine like???
What are your stats?? If you dont mind that is...
Chest, Biceps, Quads, Waist, Calfs, Neck, Forearms...
Those will help to paint a mental picutre of who you are, unless you have a pic you want to post.
Damn, I don't know measurements.Originally Posted by WBBIRL

At your height and weight, you're going to see excellent progress from just diet and training - besides, strong as you are, your LBM will burn some more it off with the cardio you do. I wouldn't bother with clen until you're already fairly lean.

Benchpress 315 (last time I maxed) Im going for 330 end of this month
Squats and Deads are both at 425
And to be honest Ive never went heavy on shoulder press with DB's so I dont know.

I just added the shoulder presses in there because it is probably my favorite exercise. lol

I do one set 8 reps, 3 seconds concentric, 4 seconds eccentric. The work out lasts about 25mins.
*I would do BB bench but going to failure i need a spotter so dumbells work better
**I get to add these to lifts on friday!
wow, alot of full body routine guys here.. Never been a huge fan of full body routines, but I might try one to switch things up one of these days.
WBBIRL- Do you plan on cutting 30lbs by the end of July to meet your goal of 270???
Two months ago I did, doesnt seem very do able right now and certaintly not healthy. Ive sorta changed that to 290 lol.
G'day, good luck with ya progress and losing weight

WBBIRL- Good thinkin, lol.. Once you dip under 300 you will have a ****load of determination to get to 275 and so on. Goodluck man
