Myself 21 years old male. I used to weigh 76 kg (height - 174 cm which is still same) earlier 3 or 4 months ago.
As a matter of weight reduction and muscle toning(specially chest and abs)...I started doing some physical activities daily which included
1. abs streching sideways and backwards. 2. Simply doing 100 + 80 + 70 jumps..(total 250) 3. Abs Crunches 4. push ups ( 15 x 2 normal , 10 x 2 leg raised , 8 x 2 placing fists) 5. Chin Ups (4 sets)(max 3 per set)
Now. What i have observed i have lost weight to 65 kg and have just become lean and i couldn't see better results in other aspects(perfect shaping or toning within body) other than just weight loss. I used to eat heavily during break fast , medium lunch and much less dinner. I avoided carb foods to greater extent.
Now I m planning to go to a gym (targeting abs , arms and chest) at evening and performing basic yoga at morning including simple activities like meditation , pranayama etc. My main goal is to make a 70 kg fit body with pretty much muscle toning, endurance and flexiblity. Not the massive one we see in wrestlers.
So Here are my following doubts
1. Should I Eat much more and workout to make my body weight reach 70 kg or Should I rely on minimum weights workout at gym with proper resting waiting for my muscles to grow since i have heard muscles growth leads to weight gain ? 2. Is it good to include yoga during morning along with gym at evening as i've mentioned earlier ? 3. Is der anything i have to consider as i've been doing certain physical activites daily as i've told earlier ?
Please Also feel free to suggest your own ideas by which i can achieve my target from my current condition
