No worries dude, no need to post pics. Yeah, it sounds like you aren't in the "carrying way too much weight, so the first few inches and fat will melt off" camp. Saying you are in the "skinny fat" camp is certainly descriptive of where you are (as that was exactly where I was...and many dudes).so i wouldn’t say i’m fat, i’m basically average weight for my height and age id say. im 25, 5ft10inches/178cm and weight is 12.10 stone/76Kg or there about. my main problem is i feel fat skinny is probably the best way i can put it. the belly fat i have is more like lower gut, not a lot but definitely something i want to lose. the main goal is to just look naturally good so i’d like a flat stomach, nice defined chest with decent arms. i’d post pictures of myself to give a better idea of what i’m saying but not sure if i wanna do that really .
also thanks, i’ve felt a lot better since i started roughly about a month ago so won’t be giving up on it!
Obviously, keep doing what you are doing. If you feel good doing it keep doing it! A little bit is better than nada. (This point gets lost way WAY too often when discussing fitness...but that must be balanced with you have to give your body a reason to change). That said, if you really want to achieve the goal you are looking for...you are going to have to include some weight training in there. (I hate it too).
You don't have to go crazy in there (which is also a point lost when discussing fitness), but to begin, I would incorporate some body weight stuff maybe before your walk. Push ups, abs, bench dips, body weight squats/split squats, lunges are great, but there are other exercises that may help you start feeling the flow on that.
Ultimately, a walk and cutting out junk food isn't going to be enough to get the flat stomach and bigger arms/chest. (I mean, maybe if you just have the genes for it). You will probably need to change that walk to some sort of HIIT training and incorporate some weights. Even an apartment gym with some dumbbells can get you well on your way.
Maiden (Im totally speaking for Maiden, but he is good) and a few others are happy to help point you to some beginner things to see if you can incorporate them in your routine and see where ya end up.
