So my aim right now wouldnt be bodybuilding/weightlifting but would rather be losing some of the weight.
Bodybuilding/weight training is not just for bulking, almost half of the people do it to lose fat/weight and gain muscle instead.

Lemme know what i should do.
See post #61 on this page. Thats a general thing what you can do. Check with your trainer and doctor before following any routine from the internet.

Anush, tell me honestly. Are you ready to put in the hard work to achieve your target? As a fellow former Rakum student you probably know what needs to be done to achieve fitness, or may be you have forgotten...

Are you motivated enough to workout hard? If not, no technique or method can help you.

Yes... absolutely.
Am totally determined to do something about it now. Its getting too late
And am also looking for a routine that i will be able to fit in to my schedule. Since i dont want to start something that i would not be able to sustain over a period of time.
But am definitely determined and ready to do whatever it takes now.

In that case drop into my office when you can, we'll have a talk. You do have my number. And it is never too late as long as you are healthy and motivated.

The exercises I do are very sustainable. My boss who is 52 can do most of the work-outs I do and he also runs 5Kms everyday.

Hey StudBuDdy,

My story is very similar to yours. Even I've always looked to gain mass.

I first joined the gym way back when I was in FYJC. I, like you, looked awful. I had no idea about bodybuilding and diet. I and a close friend joined this gym in our area and got the worst advice ever. We were told all the wrong things. Whatever we got was crap. We continued for eight months with absolutely no results. We left the gym.

Five years later.

After finishing my degree, I again got this need for increasing my weight and becoming something much better. I never thought I'd look better, but I gave it a shot. I searched the whole net about weight training, cardio and diet. I studied everything one needs to know to achieve his/her goal. I later joined the gym. I was on circuit training for about two weeks and then shifted to split bodyparts. I ate a very good diet and didn't take supplements then. I was gaining a kg per week. In eight weeks I gained eight kgs. Of course, there was some amount of fat getting stored too. I didn't care, coz my aim was to gain mass ANYHOW. I had a lot of gaps in between, around four months in ten months. I have gained enough weight and muscle mass. As of today, I have gained 18 kgs. Very satisfied with what I've accomplished compared to the very puny me earlier. Although I may still look puny, I've gained the following -

Body Type: Ecto-Endomorph
Goal: 75 kgs, gain mainly muscle mass.

Before
Weight: 47 kgs
Height: 5'6"
Biceps [unflexed]: 10"
Biceps [flexed]: 10.5"
Forearms: NA
Chest: 33"
Shoulders: NA
Quads: NA
Calves: NA
Waist: 27"
Body-Fat percentage: NA

After
Height: 5'6"
Weight: 65 kgs
Arms [unflexed]: 13"
Arms [flexed]: 14"
Forarms: 11.5"
Chest: 37"
Shoulders: 19"
Quads: 19"
Calves: 13"
Waist: 32"
Body-fat percentage: NA
Supplements:
Mega Mass 4000
This supplement helped a lot. Took this for a year and got some gains.

Serious Mass
Recently bought it. Made a new diet and started taking this. Added approx 0.7 inch on my arms in one workout with the new diet and Serious Mass.
Training:
My training consisted of split bodyparts. I always did two months gymming and then had to take a one month break and again two months gymming and one month break. No, this wasn't my strategy, it is just that I have a health-related problem which doesn't allow me to be consistent.
Diet:
I was always on a huge diet. Approx 3500+ calories. My diet mainly included healthy foods and fruits. I try to eat every three hours. During the one month breaks, I used to be on low diet and junk food due to which I kept losing weight and muscle mass often.

Actually I am not into bodybuilding, there was a phase 12 years ago, but got over it. Now I am into combat conditioning which is based on body weight calisthenics.

what can i say ..i was addicted to working out from 12th grade till end of 2nd year ...fell seriously ill during my vacation in india..lost all my lean mass ...power... got back to tworking out as soon as i reached university ..

it was very demotivating ...my power and stamina was really down ..anyways .. i pushed too hard once i hurt my shoulder ..maybe 10lb of weight added too soon...i suffer from shoulder pain each time i exert too much force ..

plan to get a check up done soon .. really hope to get back in shape and make it slow this time ..

I wasn't into body building. I just started off to lose weight. Got down from 115kgs to 92, back to 95 and trying to lose again. Hahaha

Concetrating more on cardio excercises now. Lose the fat first and then try and build up the muscles.

I've seen what that guy promotes. I tried doing the hand stand pushups but man is it difficult...I'm still trying though. But he doesn't give out any thing at all on his site. You need to buy his stuff. So, that will have to happen later.

Dude, handstands are very advanced stuff, you have to be functionally very strong to even hold that position. I can only do few handstand pushups.

Somebody gotta pay his bills... I have many of his products and they are worth it. The combat conditioning videos and Combat Abs are the best for beginers. BTW, they ship to India too.
