My diet was just better. Far more efficient.

    At 6'1 and 240 I felt fat and had no energy. Walking up the stairs at M&T was a chore.

    Changed for the most part my diet (it's a lifelong program)...always oatmeal and banana for breakfast, salads and fruit for lunch and a sensible dinner low in heavy carbs. No sodas, almost no bread, processed sugar bye-bye. Lots of fruit and vegetables and oh, fats are OK. Nuts, butter, etc. I'm a big believer in cholesterol not being a villain, but sugar spikes due to processed sugars are a killer to your heart and arteries.

    Also did cardio 7 days a week for a year. Started with a NordicTrak ski machine, got about 40 pounds off and switched to treadmill as that was needed to maintain a higher heart rate. Now I work out 4 days/week, with cardio runs of 30-45 minutes at 6.5mph, and throw in a heavy interval 5K run and a mile speed test once per week. Add pushups and situps and light dumbbell work. So I'm maintaining 193 pounds and feel good.

    One key thing we all know is that you can't train genetics.. some guys just have that natural physique they workout for 3 mos and they are ripped as shit. So always be comfortable in your own skin.

    Re: OT. Health Nuts/Workout thread

    I've gotten into a consistent 5 day workout, so I thought I'd throw it out. I'd love to hear from you guys on feedback, anythign maybe I'm missing or share your own.

    Monday:Quads, calves and core
    Long ass stretch with some auxillary hip workouts to open up my hip flexors
    Back Squats: 5x5
    Calf raises (Weighted on a smith machine): 5x25
    Leg Press (Mostly to do burners): 3x15 with a couple plates

    Core workouts; Differnet everyday, do a lot of HIIT stuff with this (incorporate burpees, box jumps, etc.)

    The key for Monday is squats, I do 2-3 warm up sets and then go right into my 5x5.

    Tuesday:Chest and Tri's
    dumbbell Bench Press 5x5 (same approach as squats)
    Skull crushers 10x3
    Incline flies 10x3
    Rope cable tri-pulldowns double set: 5 reps on a heavy weight followed by 10 on a lighter weight x 3
    Incline bench 10x3 (dumbbells - about 20 pounds lighter than you use on the bench)
    Close grip bench (with tris) 10x3
    Last set: cable flies + push ups till failure x 3

    Wednesday: Back and shoulders
    Shrugs 5x5
    Dumbbell rows 10, 8, 6, 10 pyramid
    Close grip pull downs (lats) 10x3
    Superset: side shoulder flies + upright row 10x3
    Reverse group barbell row 5x5
    Superset: front shoulder flies + sitting/leaning forward back rows 10 x 3
    Superset: cable rows + wide grip pull downs 10 x3

    Friday: Deadlifts + Biceps
    Deads 5x5 (same approach as squats and bench)
    bicep work, whatveer I feel like


    On Thursdays and Saturdays I go and do a HIIT and finish with 30 minutes on the heavy bag. Sunday is for resting. I run on Tuesdays sometimes too if my legs aren't too sore.

    It's been an effective strategy, but I'm gonna be switching to strictly 5x5 type workouts and going for a winter bulk up to build mass before cutting with hypertrophy lifts in the spring.

    That cardio is where it's at man I just do the elliptical on a high level for 30mins a day I think that has helped a lot in terms of keeping my metabolism high. Paired with boxing on Saturdays.
