The Flopnuts Fatties Thread

I'm going to be an attention whore on this. For those of you who don't know me, I'm a morbidly obese individual. I grew up overweight. Like, as long as I can remember. In the beginning of 2008 a weight loss thread started. I decided for the first time in my life I was going to go see a doctor and try and take off some weight. I was 450lbs.

I learned how incredibly ignorant I was to health, fitness, and food. Over the course of a year and a half or so, I lost 185lbs. I went from someone who had never been able to run a mile in his life, to someone who ran 30-40 miles a week. I have a framed picture of myself completing my first 5k, and it was one of the proudest moments in my life.

In August of 2010 my wife and I decided to move to Branson, MO from Seattle, WA. I've lived here before, and wanted to come back. I've never really drank in my life because I come from a long line of alcoholics. I chose a different poison, and always smoked pot. (Yeah, lost 185lbs with the ****ing munchies every day. Go me!)

Needless to say, I started drinking when I got down here because the pot was horrible, and eventually stopped running. When I stopped running, I started gaining weight. Today, 2 years later, I weigh approximately 380lbs. I say approximately because frankly, I would have to find a freight scale to weigh myself.

Today is the day it all begins again. I thought long and hard about putting myself out there on this board, because it has changed so much since I did this the first time. But it was such a great release for me, and an insane source of positive encouragement, and valuable information that I decided to do it.

I also know that all that weight I lost inspired a few others on this board to do it as well. My understanding is that they have all kept that weight off. I'm hoping to replicate those achievements with some current fatties out there. Let's band together! Let's learn, and fight, and be who we want to be, rather than who we are right now.

I'm going to post before and after pictures in the next post. My before and after is a little different though. I'm going to post pictures of me at 265, and one of me today. I look forward to posting my after-after picture at the end of the year. I am going to lose 100lbs+ before this year is over. My goal, is to weigh 250lbs by January 1st. That would be the same weight I was at in the 8th grade. Public accountability is a big part of why I was so successful before I think. The idea of putting this up and being the same or worse by year's end is disgusting. I believe it will help me. I will be bumping this thread perhaps on a daily basis. It worked the last time.

Who's with me? Who is ready to put in the blood, sweat, and tears necessary to change your life forever? If I'm alone, I'm alone. But I hope some of you will join me in the battle of the bulge. We'll call it "Custard's last stand"! And to anyone who wants to talk shit to me, about me, or whatever, bring it on. It fuels me.

GO!!!

Heavy deadlifts will build your traps which will make your neck appear bigger. But nothing you can really do for your "neck" specifically. And people that attach weights with a head harness and do neck exercises are asking for it. That is plain retarded and never needs to be done.

Neck harness or 4-way neck machine if you dont want your neck to look like a stack of dimes. EVERY football strength program includes either neck harness work or 4-way machine.

http://www.flexcart.com/members/elit...&m=PD&pid=1941

Deadlifts alone will add a little meat to your traps once you get up around 400-500 for reps, but you do need some accessory work like high pulls, shrugs & face pulls if your really focusing on building traps/yoke that stick out through your t-shirt.

Out of curiosity:

I recognize that the dude in that picture is insanely strong and could whip my ass all over creation. That being said: do people actually WANT to look like that? I suppose it beats just being fat and out of shape... but that huge, bulky look, while powerful, doesn't exactly look "in shape" to me.

Of course, I'm naturally lean as hell, so if I were naturally bulky, I might be more inclined to try to build that body type.

Not me. I would love to look like one of the guys on Ninja Warrior (lean and cut) and have no interest in being bulky.

Besides, there is some evidence that carrying extra weight, even muscle, taxes the system and can shorten your life.

There's more than just some evidence. Your organs have to keep up with all of that bulk.

Their goal is to move big weights in meets. Your not moving a ton of weight weighing less than 250.

What is the definition of "in shape"? Those guys push sleds with hundreds of pounds on them, and are in better cardiovascular shape than most on this site. Yeah they hold extra body fat & weight because they need it for powerlifting.

Check out the owner of that site, Dave Tate. He was a 300lb+ strong and bulky. Cleaned his diet up and ended up around 250 lean (10% bf). I guess to answer your question, yes, those guys want and need to be bulky.

That seems like 80's football training programs. I don't know a ton that still use next harnesses or the neck machine. You are at a mechanical disadvantage to really use significant weight for anything "neck" related and I don't see those adding significant mass to your actual neck. But to each his own.

Cleans/snatches, deads, high pulls, shrugs and face pulls are enough to build the traps.

Dave Tate was and still is the shit! Always a good read when he posts stuff.

All the articles are good over there. Im a huge W. (name withheld) fan and been on his 5/3/1 for a while. We used 4 way neck in hs and college.. Not heavy just lots of reps. Its good for injury prevention and W. (name withheld) swears bye it. When you see football plays with thick necks its from that machine or harness, not cleans and shrugs my friend (although they are great for traps).

Not to clog up the Fatties thread, but I love W. (name withheld) too. I have been using the 5/3/1 principles for the better part of a year. Nothing better than a simple progress for a stronger bench, squat, dead and MP.

Based on what you post you are a hell of a strong dude (much stronger than me!) if I remember correctly, but his principles of 5/3/1 can be used from beginners to even some advanced guys who can tweak the assistance work to meet their needs.

Thats great but unless you are playing football or rugby there is no reason to have a huge neck. Makes you look like a neanderthal walking around in your work clothes.

Or when you have a large frame, and you have a size 15 neck, it looks puny.
