  1. completely new look

    so im trying to help my friend completely change his style. he is about 5'2'' and about 200lbs. so hes very stout. im am tall and thin and i assume that my style probably wouldnt fit him. My thoughts were to get him some jean, new shoes, and possibly a sports jacket. a lot of other people have suggested buttons down shirts and some sandals. we live in a college town and there are a lot fo bars to go out to. any advice would be awesome. thanks guys.

    damn 5'2 200?

    I am guessing he wants to look a little taller. There are certain types of clothing that will give him a more slender, taller look. Almost anything he gets will have to be tailored, otherwise nothing will really look right on him.

  3. He def needs to go on a healthy diet and daily exercise.

    Yeah he needs to hit up a split weightlifting program ASAP.
    Mon: 1 hour chest, 1 hour cardio right after
    Tues: 1 hour back, 1 hour cardio right after
    Wed: 1 hour cardio
    Thurs: 1 hour legs, 1 hour cardio right after
    Fri: 1 hour shoulders and arms, 1 hour cardio after
    Sat/Sun: 1 hour cardio
    Running is probably best. Swimming is fun, the elliptical is a different range of motion than everyday movement, biking is fun too. He needs to get active now. He should also be eating 5-6 small portions of food throughout the day focusing on protein and healthy fats.

    I dunno man, lifting will just add more weight. He needs to focus on cardio.

    Check up the HIIT program.

    Lol you're basically saying that exercising alone will cause you to gain weight.

    Lifting will turn some portion of fat into muscle, but exercise (lifting) will not *magically* cause a person to gain more weight (unless that person eats more after they lift because they are now hungrier).

    But yeah, shedding a lot of lbs is definitely needed.

  7. Fat will never turn into muscle. They have two completely different cell structures.

    i have a friend who went from 270lbs of chunkiness to 270lbs of a muscular build.

    Muscle doesn't just "turn" into fat.
    When a fat person train with weights, he will build muscles and then for his muscle definitions to show, he will have to lose fat. He will do cardio exercises and eat healthily to achieve a healthy fat loss. When that is accomplished, he will revealed a lean muscular body complete with that formidable six pack abs because he has already packed on muscle mass and had lost a substantial amount of body fat.

  10. Go check out a body building forum, you will get much better advice and routines. But yes a guy with more weight on him will have an easier time getting muscle gains (though it wont show physically) then one who is lean but he will still have to cut for definition.

    Get him on the ripptoe starting strength barbell workout if you want my suggestion, really good for beginners and helped me a lot.
