I've lurked F&N on and off for years now promising myself that one day I was going to get in shape, but always finding an excuse to not stick to something. Well, I'm in a situation now where there really is no more excuse and its time to do something about my body. Stats: 6' 2" 25 years old 205 lb (220 at heaviest) Almost zero athletic experience Endo-Mesomorph ~25% bf 38" waist Goals: I've always been self conscious about my body (since kindergarten, actually)... especially because I'm built kind of funny. I'm a skinny-fat pear shape. I have almost no muscle mass above my waist, but have always had muscular quads and butt. I also carry most of my fat around my stomach. Needless to say, my insecurity about my body caused alot of trouble during adolescence which has carried over to my adulthood. I'm still very insecure about myself and I'm hoping that a better body will give me more confidence in all aspects of my life. Ultimate goal: 190 @ 15% bf & 12" drop in 6 months Issues: I am dirt poor. I graduated from grad school just as the economy fell and the job I was offered was not available and there are no open, entry-level jobs in my field. So, I'm paying for not only living expenses but also a shitload of student loans on a crappy paying job. Thus, I cannot afford a gym membership and must make do with the following equipment I have; Barbell w/ weights up to 135, Chinup bar, Swiss Ball, DBs up to 25. No bench, squat rack, or cage. Every squat and press will have to be cleaned first. I am going to try and save some money every week to buy more iron as I progress, but that may not happen for at least another month. Before pictures: No camera, so some older pictures will have to suffice. I did a pretty good job avoiding the camera over the last 10 years (insecurities again) so these are the best I could find... 220 lb 210 lb (what I typically look like) Workout: I'm not starting from a complete standstill. I just did 3 months of P90x DVDs (only the lifting ones) and actually saw some decent gains. Muscle mass is up and I've lost some bodyfat. I'm terribly bored of them now and think a typical BB routine of heavy, full-range lifts will be better suited for me. 3 day split - Back & Bi's / Chest, Should, & Tris / Lower Back & Legs B&B: Chinup Bent Over Row Shrug Barbell Curl DB Curl C,S,T: Military Press Side,Rear,Front Raises Chair Dips Pushups Swiss Ball DB Bench Swiss Ball DB Fly LB&L: Deadlift SLDeadlift Lunge Squat Calf Raise Any critique and criticism is welcomed. I know I'm a noob and that this may not be the best workout, but its better than doing nothing and I'm looking forward to seeing some results.
