Alright, so long story short.
Am 18, halfway through my senior year of highschool and about to graduate early, 3rd in my class, bunch of good, mostly useless accolades.
Have been swimming since middle school, and wrestle at 155 weight class in H.S.
Meet beautiful but twisted girl right before I graduate. A domesticated hoodrat if you will, my nice jewish boy side goes crazy. We enter a tumultuous ~2 year relationship.
Develop alcohol problems, drink up to a liter of vodka every single day. fuck up the beginning of my college career, attempt suicide and end up in psych ward for a month last summer. Get out, figure it is in my best interest to get my life back on track, it took a couple of times of spinning my wheels before I really get going, and entirely cutting off that bitch from my life. It's been nearly half a year since i've spoken to her, and I have my bad days, but that's normal I like to think.
After trying antidepressants, and realizing they dont do anything except make me feel awful through the myriad of side effects. I figure I will try natural ways of making things balanced and happy within myself.
I've realized that essentially a proper sleep regime, coupled with a good diet, and most importantly keeping your mind and body active through positive things is a great key in maintaining a happy life style. I feel the best I have in a long time, and hopefully this trend will continue
Fuck antidepressants, fuck any schemes, if you want something just go for it.
Went from this
18 years old, probably 150-155
To this, at my worst. I stopped weighing myself when I crossed 195, so I would not be surprised if I was pushing 200 here. This is January, or Feb at the latest.
To this, about a two weeks ago. I've dropped another pound since. Picture is a bit revealing, but whatever. I'm sure you guys have seen worse haha. 178 here. Also a haircut and shave does wonders.
For what it's worth, have stayed at the same height more or less throughout 5'10.
This is my routine currently.
Workout A: Squat, Bench Press, Tricep Dips, Dumbell Flies, Tricep Extentions
Workout B: DB Overhead Press, DB Curls, Lat Pulldowns, Seated Rows, Deadlift
Do this M,W,F and on T and TH I'll jumprope and do a little active recovery in the form of a 5k run, along with some body weight exercises, pullups, chinups, pushups, and ab wheel rollouts.
I think i'm going to continue with this routine until I get down to 165-170, at which point I want to switch to a more hypertrophy oriented program. Have been shopping around and I know it seems lame to pick his, but I like what Zyzz did, any of you guys care to comment?
