I posted this in the nutrition board, but it really isn't getting many responses and a response or two from someone kind of makes me cringe because the advice was do cardio, which I clearly stated I do, but obviously people don't take the time to read when posting advice. So hoping you fine guys can help me out here. I'm sure we all know that men and women bodies are different, they both have different looks, goals, etc so I think posting here I will be able to find what I'm looking for.
So I know SparkPages is giving me the wrong calorie intake when it comes to losing weight. I would love some help to get on the right track and make sure I'm eating enough, but still will lose weight. I'm about 5'11-6'0 and around 215-218 lbs. I strength train 6 days a week doing this:
D1 & 4 - Bench press, incline bench press, rope pressdowns, overhead dumbbell extensions (single arm), dumbbell side laterals
D2 & 5- Chin-ups, pull-ups, chest-supported rows (or seated rows), rear delt flyes, preacher curls
D3 & 6- Romanian deadlifts, front squats, leg curls, leg extensions, standing calf raises, seated calf raises
I hit 50 reps on each exercise, 30 secs of rest between sets. So I could be doing 10, 10, 8, 7, 7, 8 to hit my 50 reps. I then take about 2-3 minutes between each exercise and I'm on my 3rd week.
I work from home, so I'm on my computer a lot. So besides doing this work out and doing 20 mins of cardio 3-4 times a week, I don't do much else, maybe walk around a store or something, but nothing major.
I want to trim down, maybe hit 200 lbs by Sep/Oct and tone up. I think I got pictures on my page, but would love some feedback and help. Not looking for the big bodybuilder type of look, but not looking for the "skinny stick" figure either. Would love to trim my stomach, which is the hardest and the area I have the most fat in, but also have some defined muscles. I'm told I have that horseshoe look on my triceps and my calves look good. Genetics wise, I can't get much pecs (my brother is in great shape, lifts, but can't get the pecs to grow). But wouldn't mind some biceps and get them Dwight Howard shoulders. I do check bodybuilder.com website, but would love to hear your guys thoughts too. Thanks!
