I need to lose inches off my waistline for enlistment into the U.S. Army. Ive always been a big guy with broad shoulders, thick thighs and at one point i had an ab outline, and a nice beginning to a defined chest, but have since gained a lot of fat. If this is kinda like you i have a bodygroup i made.
I workout with this routine: Chest/tricep day
all cardio day
and i do some ab work and cardio on all of these days but rest day.
every day i take the: GNC Ripped vitapak:2multi vit sports, 4 safflower oil CLA, 1 thermogenic, 1 waterex pill
1500 GNC fish oil
Cellucor C4 extreme pre-workout
GNC wheybolic 60 protein post workout
ZMA before bed.
Although its not possible to spot target, is there anyway to lose the waist inches? im not dropping on the scale, but it seems like the waist is shrinking slightly from 43 to 41 inches in the last month.
anyway to do it faster? maybe all ab/core workouts and cardio all the time and lose the other workouts?

First off, your throughing your money down the ****ter.
All you need is protein and creatine. No you can't spot-burn the fat, unfortunantly. You probably just need to loose weight, period. Drink a lot of water, and getting enough protein will help burning fat and keep up the cardio. Protein is important so you don't loose muscle.

You need to go low carb.
If your desperate check out the high velocity diet. I've done it once and dropped about 20lbs although its not easy. Its basically only drinking protein shakes or a "modified fast".
You need to be in good cardio shape, not just lean before bootcamp as they will have you running your ass off. You need to be run at least 3 miles straight."noones built like you, you design yourself"

well dont worry about running 3 miles straight. trust me basic will drill that endurance into you. The army will ease you into distance running starting from about 1 mile before going to basic, bumping it up to 2 miles at basic than once you go into your MOS training you will typically do no more than 2 miles with an occasional 6+ mile run at a 9-10 min. pace. Now I know I'm already skinny but I can tell you from personal experience and what I saw back when i was in basic training. The Drill's always limited food intake on the bigger soldiers. Literally only giving them 3 min. to eat. Regulations say a soldier needs 5-10 min but being in basic none of us knew any better or didn't want to take the smoking from the drill's. drop the weight lifting and run at 1-2 miles a day at a 9-10 min pace (which is very slow). you can split your runs in half if you want but dont run less than a mile at once you need the cardiovascular endurance. As of right now your main focus for workouts is strictly push ups, sit ups, and running forget about everything else anything you do now besides these will be a waste because basic training and T-school will ruin any chance of muscle mass. Trust me RUN, PUSH-UPS, SIT-UPS, NOTHING ELSE. Don't eat any bread, chips strictly lean meats and veggies and you will be enlisting in no time.
Just my 2 cents Best of luck see you on the other side bro

The army will tape you because you are out of the height and weight range. If you want a little trick, try to get your neck bigger because that'll lower your body fat percentage in the army scale. Obviously do all the cardio you can and alot of core training.
