It's honestly not a huge difference. I mean, you're biceps will be noticeably bigger but don't expect to be turning heads.

Yeah, anyone doing this to get ripped has their priorities a bit bent.
This is good exercise, and a fun personal achievement.

EDIT: Though, you will shape out your shoulders, triceps, and chest a little.

That's the hardest area to get rid of fat apparently, or at least the last bits of it. I'm no expert, but I think the best bet to getting rid of most of your unnecessary body fat, like in the stomach area, is exercise combined with some properly suited dieting. There's only so much garbage your body can handle; if you aren't clearly gonna use it, it'll store it for later.
Another issue is that people will tend to eat less meals but huge portions, when it's better to have several meals with much smaller portions.
My bro is doing this P90X thing and is bulking up pretty well. He cheats on the diet occasionally and doesn't exercise every single day, yet he's still shaping up pretty damn well, and fast.

Oh, here. This will probably help a lot of you, whether you exercise or not. These things are important.

But yeah, a little bit of my gut is gone according to the before/after picture sequence I'm taking every fifteen days. With all this exercise I'm doing, it's would be easy to burn off at least a bit of it.
If you've got a fair amount of body fat, I think doing any amount of exercise will burn off a lot and quick. Shouldn't be too hard.
I don't have that problem myself, I'm just down to a bit of loose flab, and that's the stuff that is hardest to lose.


TLDR: Yeah, a tiny bit I guess, but I'm only a little overweight.

Just completed week 4, day 1. That's pushups in sets of 21, 25, 21, 21, 32.

Still feel pretty good about this.

Yeah the stomach is tough. To back up what Gauph said, a good diet is the first step in building muscle. You've got to make sure your body has what it needs to efficiently deal with fat and properly heal muscle tissue.

Just did the pre-week 5 exhaustion test. For those of you that are unclear on this, that's doing as many as you comfortably can before running out of strength.

Well, I did 50. Straight. It only got hard on the last 7 or so.

Halfway there then.  :)

God I love metabolism.


-I do pretty much no physical activity whatsoever.

-I eat pizza every freakin day, but I'm not just talkin pizza.  I'm talkin large meat lover's pizza.

-I drink nothing that isn't carbonated.


Did I mention I weigh 130 lbs?

You can literally see my rib cage.

Of course, the metabolism doesn't just break down food.  It breaks down food and gives you energy.

For someone with a low metabolism, whatever you eat almost entirely becomes fat, and you tend to be low on energy or sleep a lot.

For those with a high metabolism, you much more easily break down food.  You'd also be a little more of a morning person.

For those with a metabolism like mine, you can eat ANYTHING and gain no weight whatsoever.  However, you have so much excess energy that it forms mild insomnia.

I may not be able to sleep, but I'm one skinny son of a b*tch.

Depends on your age. Your body will change, so you've gotta watch out.

I was like Jughead for awhile too. Wicked skinny and no muscle. Great shape too for no reason.
Excellent stamina and stuff.

Then I got a bit of gut and that stuff does not go away easily.

Just be careful.

(also, I quit doing the pushups thing. Following their drills got way too hard way too fast. F-it.
I'll go enjoy my fairly big arm muscles and pretend I'm not fat somewhere else.
Incidentally, I just ate two ice cream bars.)

I had a mountain of fries that I fried in the deep fryer with salt and ketchup for dinner the other night.

I really should exercise.

I know it'll crash at some point (I'm about 17 now) but at least for this moment it's building even faster.  I'm down to 124.  It's not like my arms are real skinny or anything either, I got adequate muscle it's just no fat whatsoever.  Each year I'm just getting more and more energy than the year before.  I just went for four days w/o any sleep.

And good for you, at least you can say you tried.  Most people won't even do that.

Of course, if I were in this situation I'd work on legs first.  Just jogging will help out your cardio and help you carry your weight in addition to burning off calories so that you can do the stuff like push ups much easier.  Also, jogging is an easy way to target the most noticeable places for fat, especially if you pump your arms.

That is a very clever thing to do.

If you want to die.
