Free weights... I started them a week or so ago myself and I can say I almost couldn't move for a week straight. I didn't go very heavy, I used my body weight (230) to guide how heavy I went. I don't know how your body reacts to things so I can't really help ya out with this.
I've mainly only been working on upper body. When I first started cycling a few years back I was over 250 and doing over 1000 miles in a year really helps to build muscles in your legs and tone you up. I'm using mostly 25lb dumbells doing bench press, fly, incline bench, military press, tricep excercises, curls, and one or two others at the same time. Usually it's 3 reps of 10-20 depending on the excercise. By the time I'm done I can't really lift my arms above my chest, but I remember when I first started in college doing something similar, I'd wake up the next morning and it would hurt to move. I do need to go buy some 35lb dumbells.

Grats on the 208.
Was at 235 last June, last october I hit mid 190. After dipping down to 185, I am back up to 190. Got a bigger chest than I ever have, toned and big arms, abs are coming back finally (still got a lil to burn off around the mid section) and legs are getting back to how they were in high school. Got body fat % down to single digits too which is good. Lots of hard work as we get older, but its worth it!

How tall are you? I have some friends that are fairly muscular and under 170, so I figure at 170 with doing aggressive cardio and some weight lifting, I'll be in decent shape and I can start doing more weight lifting.

When I was with the ex, the pants I'm wearing now were really tight and the polo I had on had to be stretched to hide my gut. Now I can take my pants off without undoing my belt and my polos go on comfortably with no stretch. I'm going to have to buy some clothes this weekend as I have one pair of jeans and no shorts that don't look disgustingly huge.

It's more willpower and not sitting around and being lazy while constantly feeding my face all the time. I was actually at around 265 at one point in my life when I dared to step on a scale and at that point said I needed to do something.

July 2007:


NYE 2010:


I'm about to where I was at in the 2nd photo right now. Another 8lbs or so.

Here I am a little over a yr ago at 182 lbs, roughly 17% body fat, 5'-7" tall. I shot up to 220 and am now working my way down. I've been hitting the gym pretty hard (heavy weight / low reps) since October, will get myself back down to around 15-16% body fat, and be around 190-195 lbs. Just to kinda give you a visual of height vs build.

At my current weight I am as well. I'm working back down to what I was & nearly there. I think at your height 170-180 will look fine. However, I would up your weights soon. (as you mentioned earlier) The more muscle you have the more calories you burn, even when you're at rest. Shoot for maybe 8-12 reps per set. Won't make you huge but will tone you up.

Congrats on the weight loss Six. I remember when I was thin and in shape. I hurt too much to get real exercise now. Will probably start doing yoga to help with my back pain and then start working out again. As far as the tattoo is concerned, it doesn't hurt that bad. I got my first one last year. Semper Fi in big letters on the underside of my forearm. I'm not into needles either and he no problems. Do A LOT of research on the artist. There is a lot going on in the pic you posted.

I upped my reps yesterday. My arms hurt now. Well, one of them...my right arm is stronger than my left. No terrible jokes please.

I did buy a pair of size 32 jeans yesterday. I've been swimming around in 36-38's before that and my belt almost wraps around me 1 1/2 times.

6'3"....

Cardio is great for starting the metabolism, but if you want to bulk up, you only need to do the heavy lifting. If you do too much cardio and weight lifting, it will eat up your muscle instead of the fat. Diet is a huge impact as well. Get your macros figured out for how much protein, fat, carbs and work it out from there. My food intake is sucky for flavor, but it works well. Since I am not a fish eater, I limit my sources but its pretty much 1 cup of steel cut oatmeal every morning, protein bar for lunch (builders bar), workout at around 3 for an hour with each day being a different targeted muscle group with a protein shake immediately after, dinner is usually a chicken breast (lightly seasoned) and a cup of broccoli. Sometimes I have another protein bar at 7 for a desert.

This was me around august of 2012. Not terrible but you can see the big spare tire. This was shortly after I started my working out, probably around 230lbs.

Now this was me friday. Still not great, but the midsection is cut down considerably and finally showing a little definition. Some left to lose, but its getting there. Got definition in the arms and a little in the chest too. No more man teets!

Whats up guys? My name is Sean. 6'2 181 pounds 9% bodyfat have been bulking since I have always been skinny. Hope to get to 190-195 in the next few months. On nothing but basic creatine at the moment.



Took the pic about a month ago. Was probably 177lbs or so. I have been working on traps a lot since I noticed they were small. Would love to do a cycle but not experienced enough yet.

meh, at least we are talking about working out and not rubbing each other down. Getting in shape isnt a bad topic, and one that most of use deal with.

"There's the double Dutch rudder"

I'm just kidding around.

I made oxtail soup last night. That should be good for a lot of unhealthy calories. It'll last me all week though.

Ok, we all needed that. You know it.

Now, onto the "workout" aspect going on here. I think it's VERY important that we as a 'culture' break this stereotype of fat rednecks just out tearing up the countryside. The liberals use that image to close our beloved trails & label our form of recreation as reckless and destructive.

Think about it, hikers are always portrayed as fit, environment loving, polite citizens. Whereas Offroaders are portrayed as "Billy Bob the drunk" in a wifebeater and shotgun destroying the country side in his overalls with his gut sticking out. I know I've probably done 10x the restoration and trash pick up work in the forest as five of those so-called environmentalists.

Oh man, I want that jeep. I'll take the female too.

Stereotypes evolve from truths. In the less sparse parts of WV where you're going to find more trails, the culture there is the type that the redneck stereotype comes from. There aren't legal trails around Baltimore and DC where you find a more city oriented and probably Eco friendly culture.

I agree that many of the "rednecks" do enjoy everything that we also enjoy...but when ever I head out to an event...boy there are a LOT of "hefty" city dwellers.

My point was that for me personally, I don't like having that image tied around me.

The Wrangler Forum trip to Rausch Creek last year went really well. We're doing it agin in July. About 20-30 people showed up, iirc. Most of us camped out and went wheeling the next two days.

Which is why we have to work to break stereotypes.

I was reading that fat intake is good if you're lifting. If that's the case, the oxtail soup is like weightlifting super soup. It turned to gelatin when it was put in the fridge. I've moved to two days cardio and two days lifting a week and I'm stepping up from 45 minutes on the bike to 60 next time. That is until in the next week or so when it's nice enough out that I can get my "real" bike out in the dirt. I really want to do a 50 mile trail ride this summer. I'm going to see if I can't get a friend to pick me up at my destination so I can just go and it's not 25 down and 25 back. Maybe WV to DC.

Sounds like a good time... I've heard about Rausch Creek a few times on boards and what-not...but never been there.

Sounds ambitious! I'll stick to chicken breasts and potato/leek soup.

There's this guy on the HD forum that moved to Japan and owns a sweet Deluxe. Apparently all it takes to be popular over there is being an American on an American motorcycle.
