Questions from a fat guy
0 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: image.jpg]
I have done questions, but didn't wanna derail the thread I was in any further so I made my own.
I've lost 3 kg initially. My questions:
1. Will my weight loss slow down from a little over a kg per week? If a pound is worth 3500 cal burnt, and I'm fairly under my TDEE (it's estimated at like 3500-4000) won't I just keep losing fat a a steady pace until there's barely any fat left?
2. How long before I notice physical change? I was separating 2kg of chicken breast the other day, and I thought "wow, I've lost at least this much". How long before My clothes begin to look too big, etc
3. I've been 120kg since I left highschool, so that's a good 10 years of carrying this weight. Because I've been weighed down hole performing every day tasks, what sort of body will I have under my fat?
4. I'm doing the couch to 5k, and I'm sticking with it, never missing a day or skipping run segments. Does my weight make me burn more calories than an average person, seeing as I have to move and support a lot more?
5. I know it's conducive to your gains, but are many people here interested in the tough mudder obstacle course, and its similar things? I'm planning on doing the boot camp workout, and it seems like its fairly cardio heavy with resistance strength training instead of actual weights. I kinda wanna look like pic related in about 2-3 years, but I also want to be able to run for miles too.
Please note that I know everyone's different. I'm just looking for general answers.
Reasons why your martial arts class is a waste of time

Yes your class. No I don't care if you do boxing, that too
>Your martial art class doesn't teach you how to fight
You know how you learn to fight, by going into town on a Friday night and picking fights with people. Yes you're face is going to come back with a flat face... but hey. Karate lessons teach you Karate, Boxing lessons teach you boxing, TKD lessons teach you dancing. Fightin' teaches you fightin.
>Martial arts teach you to spar one person the same size as you, face to face
When have you EVER had to fight like this in real life. Its usually two against one, in the back of the head... when you're drunk. Confident of your skills? Try them out against your local squaddie... and his mate standing behind you.
>Your instructor is a dick
He's quite good isn't he, trains really hard, could kick you to kingdom come. That's not because he's good at the martial art of your choosing, its because he's the type of person who trains every day and has the kind of ego that pushes him to prove he's better than you.
Professional athletes and anybody who is really good at anything possesses the kind of "positive mental attitude" translation dickishness which pushes him to strive regardless of failed marriages, neglected children etc
>Your class won't teach you to hurt somebody
You know who wins in a fight, the person prepared to go a step further than the other. The psycho who doesn't care about the consequences.
>Your style is weak in [section here]
Be it groundwork, stance or speed, your style is a specialisation or franchise of a whole
>It costs a fortune
Is it what $5-10 a session? After 10 years imagine what kinds of firearms you could have bought for that money
>It is bloody good fun though
Can't argue there
