...and would like some ideas. I am 6ft 285. I only gained about 10 lbs since high school 9 years ago. Here are my obstacles that I face all the time. 1. 5 disc screwed up from an injury in 98, arthor through it all 2. I never have been able to run distance even in my glory days. Not sure why, upper chest has never been able to handle it. 3. biking is a thrill but my big arse brakes and bends every bike I get. I never seem to be able NOT to ride it hard and jump off of stuff 4. I like to EAT. Not junk food per se, mainly a meat eater. I cannot stand veggies. I usually skip breakfast, eat a medium size lunch and a Big supper. (It's my meal) I have always had a big gut and would like to loose it. Crunches kill the back though. Besides my small man boobs, the rest of my body has always been solid. I have the summer off and plan on joining a small family type gym with the wife. My IDEAL weight would be in the 235 range but not sure if that is even doable. Any suggestions from the brotherhood would be great.
