    Background info:
    26 yrs old
    5-7/5-8ish
    145lb
    small gut, possibly from lots of alk

    Motivation (partial):
    During the summer, I wakeboard a few times a week. My arms feel like spaghetti after a couple of runs. It's sad.

    Gym status:
    I haven't been to the gym in months (8+, and even then it was 1-2 times then another 8+ month lapse). I have a membership to 24 hour fitness. I want to use it. I can get to the gym 3-4 times a week for about 45-60min.

    Food/Diet:
    I don't eat the healthiest of food, but I don't eat just junk food either. The way I figure it... I haven't ballooned up by not being in the gym, so even if I don't change my eating habits too much just yet, it will still be an improvement. One step at a time. =) Seems logical to me...


    Ultimate goal:
    byebye gut, hello [#] pack... 6 eventually...
    more muscle mass
    more strength
    more stamina


    So... here's where I need help. I don't know WTF to do in the gym to reach my goal. Hell, I don't even know how to make my goal quantifiable. I have no idea what a good weight for me should be. I have no idea if I should be drinking a protein shake before/after a workout. I have no idea what exercises to work on. Oh... and I want to reach my goal F A S T. As fast as possible with the conditions I mentioned. And it would help morale if I saw an improvement quick, too. =)

    Halp! Plz?

    If you get really hung up on results you may not have good staying power. Though gym results are great and help all of us stay motivated, the real secret is to make it a part of your lifestyle so you just go to the gym like you would eat daily or take multiple dumps.

    Just my two cents, results will come if you make it part of your life :cool:
