Hey guys,

Its great to be back here month after month to see my own progress in hindsight along with some valuable suggestions from you all.


Quick Summary:

1. Quit smoking tobacco completely.
2. Huge progress in voice tonality. Slowing down my rate of speech helped.
3. Invested in high end personal grooming products.
4. Finished some intensive training courses for my career.
5. I can finally shred on the guitar - imagine sweet child's solo at 1.25x
6. Improvement in body language and stoic expression.


I realise ive been procrastinating on the fitness front, still around 50 pounds overweight.

Ive shifted this health issue on my topmost priority starting this June.

I'm using this forum to design a fitness regime for myself which I can do.

- Stretching ( 10 minutes )
- HIIT sprint / walk alternation ( 20 minutes )
- 100 x {pushups+crunches+squats} ( 30 minutes )

Current statistics:
Height: 6'1"
Body Weight: 250 pounds
Frame: Broad
Wrist: 7.9"



My startegy is to make the process of getting out of my house to run, extremely streamlined.

Let's see how this experiment turns out.
Nice man. I learned the solo to Sweet Child O Mine as well and it's super fun to play

This thread would be my personal journal in this quest to fitness.

A place to come back to at the end of the day to reflect.

Day 1: 50 pushups, 100 crunches l, 100 squats completed.
Day2:
"Do I have to do it over sore muscles"
"My leg muscle feels kind of funny, maybe I should rest?"
"Maybe I should start from the first of the next month?"

All sorts of rationalisation by the mind to avoid doing good for the body.

The mind doesn't like disrupting the homeostasis.

Let's get past that for another post on day 3.

It's been two weeks since I became serious about working out.

Bought a basketball to supplement this routine and make it interesting.

A goal fills my mind with passion.

Aim: To become lean enough to start dunking like I used to in high school.

Current workout:
50 court suicides sprints
50 pushups
50 crunches
50 squats
30 point game with my pals

I already see the water loss and people noticing and commenting on my weight loss.

It's always better to be grounded and consider it as semi-relieable feedback instead of compliments.

Any advice is welcome.

Adios mates.

Switch to a lower carb diet (like Paleo, not keto), get 30+ minutes of aerobic exercise at the lowest aerobic zone (which primarily burns fat for energy instead of higher zoned which burn primarily glycogen), and for muscle development, get a copy of the book: Bigger, Leaner, Stronger.

Not sure if this video has been posted or you’ve seen this before, but this MMA fighter discusses how he works out more efficiently with Joe Rogan. His idea is to only workout at about 70% of your capacity but be consistent with it, meaning going to the gym every single day. This reduces the likelihood you’ll be sore the next day and basically you really never should be sore because that means you went overboard. Over the course of a year, you’ll have put in more time in the gym than someone who trains intensely (90-100%) only 3-4 times a week.

I started doing this and it is a challenge NOT training intensely while at the gym because I feel like I’m wasting my time there. But the added volume does start to be apparent after a few days and you’ll be content with a 45 minute workout. Consistency is probably the most difficult part of this whole thing but that’s the mental side that’ll make you better in the long run.

@darksprezzatura you can of course attribute whatever to whatever, and I of course can be wrong. Here is the deal, to be successful with women you gotta be hot, so advice as always, hit the gym become roman god. )) nah don’t leave us, don’t be an *******.

-showed me the happiness brotherhood can impart on a man.

- improved what I knew about game, frame, self-respect, self-improvement and boundaries.

-taught me how social and sexual dynamics work in reality and how to go about them.

I will always be grateful towards the legends who shook me to reality and made me realise the truth. You guys would always be my heroes.

I have all the resources and knowledge that I need to improve myself to become a high value man I've wanted to be in life.
Thanks to you guys.

The only obstacle stopping me now is myself.

I've had marginal but noticeable growth in success with women and my life since I've swallowed the redpill which wasn't a long time back.

But it's not enough.

I attribute this primarily to having insufficient noticeable value in congruence to the mindset I have developed.

It's dangerous unless you actively work towards increasing the value you offer by GOING OUT THERE AND DOING IT.

Goals to achieve before 17 Oct (4 months from now) :


1) Body fundamentals
Lose weight to 180 pounds at 6'2
Join MMA and learn to fight

2) Fashion fundamentals
- A high end suit
- A watch
- 3 sets of new clothes for my new wardrobe.

3) Social Fundamentals
Approach one new girl everyday
Hang out with my guy friends and suggest activities which are around self improvement.

4)Vocal fundamentals
Watch one new video on vocal fundamentals everyday and replicate the exercises infront of a mirror with a recorder.


I'll be talking to myself once every month on the 17th on this thread and I hope to see progress in myself.

Till then, thank you guys and best of luck.
This guy is signing of for 316 days and counting.... *sighs

This is a great share. Thank you mate. For a leaner physique, a higher set volume vis a vis weight goes well.

I've incorporated workouts used by basketball athletes to utilise my "fast twitch" muscle fibres.

100 court suicides, dribbles, sprinting running instead of an hour long marathon jog.

This along with a huge restraint from carbohydrates has shown significant results.

I'm thinking to include a NOFAP routine in the mix and see if that turns out to be useful.

Any inputs on that would be helpful.

Success isn't always about greatness. It's about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come. - Dwayne Johnson


Hey guys it's been 2 weeks since I began my workout regimen properly.

LOOKS:

Actions taken everyday:


+ Began playing basketball daily
+ I focus on two major muscle groups daily
+ 30 minute vigorous swimming
+ Eating 8 egg whites a day
+ Cut out all carbohydrates, increased good fats like peanuts
+ Regular green tea
+ Downloaded a habit tracking app to give me notifications to do all the above


Results:

+Most of the weight I've lost seems to be water weight.

+I've lost about 15 pounds in the past two months

+I think clearer now, I feel higher testosterone levels primarily attributable to higher energy, less fatigue.

+I find it easier to approach random women.

+I feel more horny and aggressive

+Higher stamina definitely

-These "benefits" seem to be beginners benefits.



FASHION:


+ Bought a high end gaming chair for my workstation
+Posters for interior decor
+Continued grooming myself daily
+ I pay attention to my hair and beard, keeping it neat, yet with an out of the bed look

VOICE:


+My voice has begun to become deeper as I kept practicing throat bass which lowered my voice
+I speak with more pauses now.
+It's great saying more using less words.

MONEY:

+As I finish my masters this year, I will be beginning to apply for top IT management jobs from now.

+Hope to get some inputs on how to apply for jobs internationally



I have to continue this routine as a lifestyle to see more substantial and permanent benefits.

Thank you for being supportive, I think I can manage it all now and I'll continue to post my field results in this thread

Peace.
