So i havent posted here in a while. Im currently working up north for the summer, 2 weeks on and 1 week off back home. I've been working out for just under a year now. Im 5'5 was 205 before I started last July (225 before that) super fat boy, lol. Less than a year later, and lot of hard work I'm down to 155 ish (153-157 depends on the time lol). Gotten pretty big too. My working sets (8-12 reps) are: Bench 225, Squat 365, DL 225 .. So now heres my problem. Now that I'm back to work, I got sent to a different campsite, and the equipment here is very very minimal. All we have now are dumbells, lat pulldown machine, bench machine (useless) and legcurl/ extention machines. I need to learn new work outs with these equipment more specifically, for legs and tris. Its been a complete change of lifestyle for me and I absoloutely love it, just wanna be able to continue while im up here. Got pretty bummed when I saw what I had to work with lol. So any tips would help thanks.

i drink 3-5L of water depending on how hard i work

would it hurt to take fat burners??

any help would be much appreciated
Eat less.
Lift more.
Do sprints.
Backload carbs. I don't know where you heard that no eating carbs after 3pm, but it's nonsense.

You can also try intermittent fasting.

Try unilateral exercises like one legged squats and deadlifts with dumbbells.

You can also do things like turkish getups, kettlebell workouts and bodyweight stuff (see convict conditioning).

How is the bench machine useless, is it broken? But yeah, do the free weights with dumb bells and body exercises. Bring some resistance bands, etc.
Can you install a chin up bar in your doorway?

If you don't mind me asking, what are you doing up North?

IMO you should never mind all that faggy cardio and go on a straight weight gain plan. Put some muscle on that frame and you won't have to worry about the fat. Keep at it when you go to Japan. A gain diet will be a lot easier there than a loss diet.
I figure putting up before will just give me another push to get some after up
I've never thought about bulking up just about cutting down. But thinking about it it never seemed to worked so bulking up time it is. ty for the tip. btw isn't eating healthier easier in japan?

Not necessarily. Japanese food is very heavy on carbs and oil, and light on protein and vegetables. Traditional stuff is good (but still light on protein) but most people are age aren't eating traditional food.

Japanese people aren't very healthy generally. Their smoking rate is very high, they drink a lot, stay up late, get little sleep, eat mostly junk food... You'll be adopting some of those habits when you go there (hopefully not the smoking part, that is just retarded)

Yup I was there for just 2 weeks on a rather limited budget, and still gained at least 3-5 lbs of fat.

Eventually I gave up on trying to have a budget - it's impossible to eat healthy on a budget if you are eating out all the time.

One tip - yakiniku is your friend (korean bbq) and shabu shabu (hot pot). Lots of reasonably priced AYCE makes it easy to load up on protein, and they usually come with a salad bar to load up on veggies.

Horumon =
