hello guys, what’s up.

I used be active here... about 10 yrs back... its a good forum and learned a lot from here.
I’m planning to use this space to write down my daily fitness routines and some personal goals.
following is my plan for next 6 months. Loose about 20 LBS [I know its a f**king hard] , Get a Job in FAANG. Mind Control [focus only on positive things in life.]
why I want to do above things.

1) Lose weight -- I have high cholesterol and I want to control it without medication, I have GERD and I have observed working out helps control it and who doesn’t want to look younger and healthy.
2) Get a job in FAANG – I want to work at least in a year in top Tech companies with brightest minds in industry, increase salary, also currently the company where I’m working CEO and CTO resigned, so I foresee a layoff coming.
3) Mind Control – build healthy positive mindset.


Where I’m currently At.

Lose weight – 195 LBS
Current Job – Lead software engineer. [ its a good job with decent salary]
Mind Control – Emotional, worrying about trivial things, not focused


What I’m planning to do. [Please comment]

  1. Update journal daily – Spend 15 mins to update journal daily.
  2. Gym – Morning gym for 45 mins, more cardio and legs exercise.
  3. Improve diet.
  4. Interview preparation – solve Leetcode for 2 hrs daily. [this is soul sucking]
  5. Start interviewing in 30 days. [2 interviews per week min]
  6. Meditate for 10 mins.
  7. Don’t waste time on Internet and digital media which adds no value to life.
Thanks
Manish

Day 1. it was a slow start.

Woke up at 4 am.. tired ..wanted to sleep more...as always..lazy ass...but opened laptop ..and started doing interview preparation.

wanted to go to gym at 7.30 am, but felt asleep...

went to gym in evening and did leg workout [ugly egg first].

overall good day, had lot of errands and I felt I could do more interview preparation.

also I need to focus more on diet.

I'm putting more focus on cardio.. around 20 mins cardio for 250 calories.

2) body weight squat - 1 set
3) Squats -- no weight-- 20 lbs
3) Bench - no weight- 20 lbs-- 50 lbs- 90 lbs
4) Chess press Machine - 60 lbs- 60 lbs- 80 lbs.
5) One more chest exercise [lol.. dont know the name] ...3 sets

Day 5- Good Gym day, I'm need to change my way to practice algorithms, I'm getting stuck at one problem and spending couple of hours on the same, then loosing interest, new technique which I will try to follow is, spend 15 mins max on thinking on problem else see the problem solution and then move ahead, and try to solve same problem again at night.

1) Elliptical - 20-23 mins- 250 calories.
2) dumbbell raise - [5lbs, 10 lbs, 15 lbs]
3) barbell shoulder press - [30lbs, 50lbs, 70lbs]
4) Machine shoulder press - [20lbs, 60lbs, 60lbs]
5) Upright row
6) Delt Raise.
7) Squat [just to make my weak legs strong]
8) Bench Press [to remove my soreness].

good luck to me..lol
 

How This "Nice Guy" Steals Women from Jerks

Did you know a woman can be totally UN-ATTRACTED to you...

And she'll still sleep with you?

If you've ever seen a girl go home with some asshole she didn't even LIKE, you know this is true.

But how is this possible?

Because deep inside her brain, sexual desire has nothing to do with what you LOOK like...

And everything to do with how you make her FEEL.

Matt Cook knows this all too well.

Matt is a nice guy... but he steals women from JERKS all the time.

In this free video training below, he'll show you how he does it:
