YouTube p90x 30 minute workout. Drink in moderation and the alcohol is the only sugar you can have. Try swimming, basketball, something recreational you enjoy...good luck

How and where do I start at home and get motivated?

I'm 5'8" and weight about 155 to 160, with an alcohol gut! I'm not a regular at the gym since I get anxiety around people. I have a drinking problem and I smoke weed, but I'm tryna get back into shape.

Where do I start? I need help with the structure.


-------------
Do you want to work out at home?

Do you want to work out at home then move on to the gym?

What can you spend on to improve your life?

Could you rank in the order of importance which one of these problems you are willing to work on 1st?

What is making you want to change so badly now?

Workout at home then eventually start going to the gym and sh*t ... one important thing is i work nights and in the day time i be asleep. Some days I only eat one meal other days im smoked out my mind and eat like crazy. Whats making me change. Well sh*t 1st im gettin older, 2nd like half my circle of friends became health conscious all the sudden and going to the gym regularly or into some physical workouts. I jus feel like im behind on everything in life. I think a Healthy body and working out gives a person discipline.

monitor, reduce and consume calories in an 8-hour window

reduce processed foods, drink lots of water

baby steps works

use the stopwatch on your phone, do 1 push-up, 1 crunch, and 1 squat every 3 minutes, so 0-3-6-9... until you get to 27, that will be 10 sets, increase by one each day until you are straining to finish the last few sets, then go up by one when the straining stops, throw some dumbbell curls into the mix, at some point, you might need to bump it up to every 4 minutes

same thing with running, run for one minute, next day 2 min and on until you can run for an hour straight, try to walk twice as much as your run

elevated heart-rate equals calories burning

STRETCH

focus on sleep, get blackout material for your room windows or get a sleep mask or both, keep a consistent sleep schedule, use earplugs if easily awakened, don't eat before bed, eliminate electronics in the bedroom, keep bedroom cold

You are skipping questions and writing in gibberish .....

Look at some of these options.

Pick one that you can and will do



They give workouts and meal plans

You just have to be smart enough to follow along and trust the process. Meaning shows up every day whether you feel like it or not.


other places you can look at

You're already doing it wrong. What are you on here asking how to get motivated, just go out and start. When you feel better the more you'll do it. Even when I go for one day it helps. Just me consistency is off.

if you work nights, don't stay up too far into the afternoon. let's say you work a 12am to 8am shift.. go to sleep no later than 1 or 2pm. use that few hour window after work to workout, whichever regimen you choose.

never go straight to sleep in the morning, because you'll wake up earlier than needed and that tiredness will creep in the middle of your shift.

plus.. only hang out on your nights off. tryna chill before work will zap your energy levels, next thing you know you wanna drink red bulls and monsters.

I co-sign doing the P90x sh*t. Find you one of those 30, 60 or 90 day work out routines like P90x / Insanity and do it. The reason why is because they're very beginner-friendly, they start you off slow, I think they generally have you work out 6 days a week so it builds a habit of being active every day and holds you accountable.

If you do one of those programs and like the results you got you can then branch off and look into doing something else. Those programs are meant to get you from being out of shape to in-shape and ready to transition to doing something else.

Most people who I know who did P90x ended up going to the gym and getting on a weight lifting program or going and doing cross-fit. But they never would of done it if it wasn't for P90x helping them get in shape and build that confidence and show them that they can stick to a routine and can live a healthy lifestyle

that's what you need.

Be honest with yourself. If you dont have discipline, youre going to need a trainer.

Even if its just joining a boxing gym, you have to be around someone who can help you get started RIGHT.

Invest in yourself.
Word, how do trainers work? I never really looked into one..they expensive and is it worth the money..

Start off with push up and crunches then invest in a dip rack and a pull up bar
