    If someone needs to do extra flexibility work to do an exercise that's taxing, surely they're better off doing a different exercise that's taxing there and then.

    No, fat people are used to sitting on the couch watching tv.

    You're missing the point, I only listed squats as a starting exercise, if they find it easy move one....

    Oh right ankle flexibility... you don't have to be that flexible to do a pistol squat. So you're saying just because you have to put in work to be flexible weighted exercises are better?

    You don't even need to be flexible to do most BW exercises dude.
    Read above.

    Don't get me wrong I lift with weighted exercises atm to build mass, but when I've done that ill probably move onto calisthenics

    Ok. I'm not strong enough to do a pistol squat. You got me bro. My chicken legs can't do it.

    If you're doing cardio properly it will suppress your appetite, and in fact some of my better runs have been while i'm hungry.
    Are you crazy? :eek:

    Is that a regular cardio session?

    Oh, sorry.

    I'm aware of what I need to do to lose weight. It should say in my signature but I've lost ~ 31 pounds so far from my peak weight. I've no problem calorie restricting or doing cardio.

    I just wonder if there are any good reasons to add strength training into the mix.

    It certainly wouldn't be worth it for aesthetic reasons. I'm not going to change my macros so my protein intake will just be what it is so no muscle gain. And even if I did tighten up what I have, it wouldn't be apparent beneath all the fat I have ontop.
    Mix a bit of sprinting in with the cardio to improve your weight loss, it's a training method known as HIIT.
    Also try to mix up your routine a little unless your training for something specific; do some long distance running / walking as well as some interval and weight training, try to avoid machines as they focus on specific muscle groups whereas body weight and free weights will provide a workout for a greater range of muscles.
    Hope this helps a bit

    Don't usually go that long, but that was my last one before Xmas Day so wanted to make up for the lunch I'd be having (although the calorie intake doesn't quite work like that) :lol:

    So how do you end up choosing a programme?

    I've read a variety of web pages (20+) and threads on the net which slate various programmes.

    Though the consensus seems to be that compound lifts are good.

    Ah. Thanks . I saw "under construction". Didn't realise there were things within it already.

    One more question, is the advice there applicable for people who don't have bb or strength related goals?
