Question by Grape: Who knows a perfect fitness plan for me?!?!?
Height: 6ft 2in
Weight: 200lb
Age: 16

To be honest with you all, I weigh 200lbs is not because of muscles, it’s because of fat. I know I am a bit too fat for myself. I would want to know, if anyones has a perfect fitness plan for me to workout and become more fit. I have full access to my local gym, which basically have every kind of excerise machines. Thanks y’all for helping! :)

Everyone is different from another. What works for me may not work for you. However, this is the best advice I can give you. If you are trying to build muscle (and as a result burn fat), and are a beginner (rarely work out, never been really consistent with any type of program), then you should do something like this in a given week: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday: full body resistance training (chest, back, shoulders, biceps, triceps, forearms, quads, hams, calves) as a circuit (one set of each chosen exercise performed consecutively one after another). Choose a weight that you can do 10-12 reps. When you have finished an entire circuit, repeat once more. By the way, try to rest as little as possible between sets in a circuit. Tuesday and Thursday: Choose a form of cardiovascular exercise (jogging, jump rope, stair-climber, rollerblading, a sport, etc.) Shoot for at least 30-45 minutes if possible. And finally, and most importantly, change your diet. You need about a gram of protein per pound of desired body weight. Eggs, chicken, fish, cheese, milk, red meat, etc. arje a good source of this. Skip fried foods. Skip dessert. If your going to eat bread make it whole grain. Beware of sugar. Remember: carbs and sugar that is not used as energy are stored as fat. Whole wheat pasta is good, whole wheat tortillas, etc. Fresh vegetables are excellent. Fruit for the most part is great (just do’n dip those strawberries in whipped cream). Always eat breakfast! Do not skip breakfast. It kickstarts your metabolism. Eat less more frequently as opposed to 1 or 2 giant meals all day. Watch carb intake after 6 p.m. Invest in some whey protein powder or ready made protein drink. I love muscle milk personally and think it tasted amazing. Also, yes, cutting calories does drop weight. However, more importantly, the kinds of calories you put in your body bwill really determine your success. You dont just want to be a skinny guy/girl that is composed of a lot of fat. No, yoiu want lean, functional muscles. Diet is the most important part of any exercise/fitness program. You literally are what you eat. I hoped this helped. Check out a Men’s Health, Fitness RX, or Maximum Fitness magazine. They have loads of information. Good Luck my friend!
