Are you struggling with obesity and depression?
Did you ever think of deadlifts and squats as a solution?
Check it out, it might help you.
The daily Weigh for today is:
192.5 pounds in weight. Still have not broke the 190lb barrier, not that I have to or that there is any big rush.
I am not complaining having started way up around 275 pounds, so 190 pounds feels a lot better.
22.2% Body fat – This is the number that I am most interested in lowering.
24.9 BMI – This is also an important metric
Leg Curls – 30 pounds 5 repetitions
Squats – 45 pounds 5 repetitions
Leg Curls – 35 pounds 5 repetitions
Squats – 65 pounds 5 repetitions
Leg Curl – 40 pounds 5 repetitions
Squat – 85 pounds 5 repetitions
Leg Curl – 45 pounds 5 repetitions
Squat – 105 pounds 5 repetitions
Leg Curl – 50 pounds 5 repetitions
Squat – 110 pounds 5 repetitions
I like to do leg curl before squats for warm up besides some stretching. I feel that this warms up my legs and knees. I also do a deep knee squat making sure to keep my knees behind my toes as a warm up as well. As you can see, my preference is to go up in weight gradually. I think I need to get alot stronger before being able to do squats of five sets of five reps with something like 135 pounds, so in the meantime, I want to build my strength gradually.
I am not complaining about doing squats with 110 pounds, I am making progress and that is what counts.
The leg curl and squat workout are all as a preliminary for the deadlift workout.
Once I have finished the leg curl and squats, I am feeling pretty ready for deadlifts.
Deadlift workout warm up 95 pounds one rep
Deadlift workout 2nd set 115 pounds one rep
Deadlift workout 3rd set 135 pounds one rep
Deadlift workout 4th set 145 pounds one rep
and last but not least
Deadlift workout 5th set 155 pounds for one rep
The above deadlift workout took about 45 minutes.
My goal is to have my strength workouts take about 30 minutes.
So how does this all relate to you?
Are you looking for a workout program that you can begin to get into shape or back into shape?
Are you constantly struggling to find out how you can finally get rid of your belly fat?
Have you given up on ever being in shape?
These are all questions that I am very familiar with.
Are you looking for a way how to treat depression without medication?
Depression and obesity many times appear hand in hand and it is understandable why.
Got depressed? Maybe Ben and Jerry will make things feel better? Or any other number of ways to self medicate.
Clearly, self medication with junk food is the fastest way to self medicate from depression as well as the fastest way to get fat!
So, the fastest way to lose body fat then is to stop eating the junk food and the processed food and to start building muscle.
The more muscle you work on building, the less likely it will be that you have an interest in eating junk food.
Trust me on that one.
As long as you keep getting stronger and stay consistent with your strenght training program, you are going to want to stay right there, in the sweet spot of effective nutrition and workouts.
What does that have to do with relief from depression?
Building muscle and eating healthier are going to give you the tools to potentially manage your depression without medications.
