So I'm 16 and I weigh about 170 pounds, and I want to be 135, before Christmas. Any advice about how I can come close to achieving this. Thanks.
A good diet, a lot of cardio and somebody or something to motivate you.
Yer just get into a good routine and do cardio daily, try to run abit further or abit faster every day, drink alot of water it helps alot too, eat foods that fill you up ...low gi foods..potatos ect, smaller meals in a day but still make sure you eat atleast 3-4 meals a day
You want to lose 35 pounds in about 40 days? That's like 6 to 7 pounds per week. I don't know if that is a healthy goal. That's more like a crash diet where you'll lose a lot of lean (muscle) mass too. You'll probably be hungry all the time and I don't know what your situation is but for me, I don't need to be hungry in December for it to already be one of the more tempting months to cheat on my diet.
Even if you modified your goal to be more healthy, that kind of goal takes the kind of dedication that not many people can just summon up out of nowhere. Why do you want this?
You gotta eat super clean and super smart like you are a machine and also a scientist finding the secret formula for the machine's highest performance, monitor calories, exercise like it's your job... You gotta have the kind of drive you can only imagine exists in whatever dimension they take those sweaty pictures for fitness motivational posters. People do amazing things all the time, why not you? It's no great secret, hard work and dedication are all it takes.
Or, you could just relax a bit, do your best but keep it moderate, and see some progress by Christmas but even better, have some solid good habits developed that will continue to pay off with more progress.
There are many different bmi calculators online.
That particular page says that for your age, there is no ideal standard, which is good, you probably should not concentrate on numbers so much as how you feel cuz you're still developing.
That being said, your current weight puts you at the bmi of about 28, and according to that site, 19-25 is healthy. If you weighed 150 you'd be at 25 bmi.
Maybe shoot for that first. Having smaller goals helps you to build healthy muscle at the same time, which has weight, and learn and alter your techniques to get better results.
Do you guys think the Aphrodite work out would be enough cardio?
Lol I actually want that girls butt in the picture.
Jenny when I do squats I don't even feel in in my glutes
Just eat good . Get motivated . And do simple stuff ,then make it harder and harder
