Let me start off and see its been probably a bit over 8 years since I posted on here under a different name back in the andro-1 days. I peaked at 250 with 22 inch arms. Sigh..the good times. It does feel good to be back on the board. The hunger to get beastly has vanished a long time ago and just lost interest in working out. Now I'm left as a fat guy still holding on too my v shaped back and broad shoulders. My current stats are 5"11 at 260 with all the fat concentrated on my midsection. I don't want to get passed the point that its too difficult to lose the weight so I want to be proactive and get back on the bandwagon. My overall goal is fat loss not to get beastly I want to be at 200 but I see 210 more attainable. I know how to eat clean and calculate my daily proten/carb/fat intake. I tend to clean up my act once I begin a workout program. I like the idea of getting in shape in the comfort of your home and save the gas. Tired of the same generic workouts in the gym thats why I go to workout dvds to have someone to try keep up with to keep me interested. They are fast pace and get a great sweat while running on the hamster wheel is true misery.
I tried the p90x 3 years ago due to a bet to see who will look better in 3 months he worked out in the gym and I at home. I went up to week 8 and the other party backed out of the bet so I stopped working out and also due to I started to date my current girlfriend. I'm sure I would've won because I know proper form and how to properly lift and keep the muscle flex during the lift for greater muscle hypertrophy. In the eight weeks I dropped 20lbs went from 250 to 230 and the cut in the middle of my chest was about halfway down. That also included to me adding 20 minutes of cardio on the treadmill after the workouts and doing the weight lifting workouts mon-wed, thursday kenpo x which I thought was pretty gay, friday do a full body workout heavy 8-10 reps 2 sets each which consisted of standing barbell military press, barbell curls, squats, flat bench, skull crushers and weighted dips.
I know everyone will say just go to the gym and get it in. My days tend to be a bit busy now at my new job and with a long hr commute from work I don't want to leave the house once I pick up my girl and get home. As I was getting my stuff together to work out sneakers, gloves, etc online I noticed on the mens health site the deltafit speed shred. Which each session is 30 minutes of fast pace fat burning exercises. That sure beats the p90x hr+ workouts. I like the idea that I can bang it out in 30 minutes and move on with my day. Has anyone tried the deltafit speed shred and did the whole program? What were your results as I can't find any online? Which of the 2 dvd programs should I commit to for the next 3 months?
