Feedback & Follow Up

  • From Chris: Hi Guys, well another fantastic podcast from The Tekside Network, you guys are awesome and I sincerely thank you for giving up your time to entertain us in such a great way! I have a couple of questions to ask if you don't mind and I would like your opinions on the best way to achieve what I want to achieve with my fitness and fat loss goals. First up a bit of background, I am 44 years young, 5ft 7" and currently weight 12 st 10 or 178lbs. I have lost 28lbs over the last few years just by watching what I eat and exercising but I cant seem to shed the weight I want to get lean and rid of the flabby stomach and man boobs lol. I guess my ideal weight would be somewhere around the 154lbs mark although I have no idea if this is correct or not so I guess that is the first questions. How do I know what my ideal weight is? Next up is how should I go about losing the weight by exercising and eating right. I am pretty well educated with nutrition and and hopefully calorific intake and have worked out the following to enable me to lose around 1lb per week.

  • Calories 1700 a day

  • 40% from Protein

  • 40% from Carbs

  • 20% from fat

  • On top of that I exercise three times a week and this is where the other question comes in. I am a weak guy, always worked with my head not my body so I have little muscle really. I tried lifting heavy and started with Stronglifts 5x5 and ended up hating it as the weight got really heavy so I got more into cardio. I am now doing three different things a week just to keep it interesting:-

  • Monday high rep low weight lifting

  • Squats

  • Bench

  • Deadlifts

  • Rows

  • Etc

  • Wednesday is pure HIIT cardio burning around 500 calories in 40 mins

  • Friday I do another weights session, again light weights high reps mixed with pushups and burpees.

  • All in all I am burning around 1200-1500 calories a week in exercise.

  • The question now, am I doing too little, too much, eating right etc etc? Let me know what you guys think and if you can give me any pointers that would be fantastic.

  • Thanks guys keep up the great work we appreciate all you do!
