Did you try putting lotion on it? When i started working out i had callouses on my palms, lotion helped & moreover I started using chalk for most of the heavy lifts.

My grip strength suffered whenever i used gloves. Try using lotion on palms & use chalk for your lifts, in a couple of weeks it will get better.

No matter which glove or protection you use, skin will thicken but in my case, my skin sometimes stretches so much that it tears in pull ups and the rest is done by the rough grip on the rods. So i use gloves to save it from tearing apart. Never had problem with losing strength with them.

Reebok and Nike are too expensive. I've had a good experience with cosco but you're right, even I can't find them online. Had purchased them on Flipkart earlier.

They are indeed expensive, but one day I found the Reebok padded gloves being sold for 700 on Flipkart, so I bought them. They are back upto 1600-1800 now. They work great for the first month but then the foam slackens though still does the job.

The gel based ones i used from cosco were quite good with no such issues. However, the one available on FK is a different model from my purchase. But this one seems to be the advanced version. The risk that you may not like it is definitely there though.

I just started my youtube channel related to fitness stuff. Am I allowed to post a link to my channel/video here ? Current content is focused on beginners and some intermediates as well , so it might help them avoid the BS* which every beginner goes through ( I wen't through same too)

Anyone watches Athlean - X videos. :P

 

I tried some of his tips for arms.

My arm size has increased. now its 43 cm

but lacks definition

I am very much thankful to Athlean.

His one particular exercise helped me be somewhat pain free from sciatica pain when nothing helped.

 

Now I can at least again play football twice a week (aim remains to get back to daily which is very difficult as my game is heavily dependent on using my body/back to bring in between the players and the ball) , pushing too much brings it back but better than nothing.

 

Have been following other home exercises as well.

Not into body building at all, just always look to boost my performance.

I had suspected this.

Tried to find out and the eleptical trainer's timer goesback to zero after hitting 99.59

 

 

Tiring in the end for only 575 calories(at level 5 hill intervals which are easier - usually do level 6 manual setting) 871470c63b563ca9e1a70750abf200f2.jpg

Never Rely on the calories number on these cardio machines. These numbers are way off and also amount of calories burnt will vary from person to person

Yes, I know that but since the machine takes your weight at the start and also measures your heart rate throughout I thought it could be close.

^ This helped immensely (has beginner friendly levels and very easy to start and actually helpful), now start on advance from the start along with some additional stuff and don't take breaks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Currently doing all of these together in a go to keep my back in normal condition.

 

And legs have different videos,

 

Want to add some very light shoulder stuff but anything more than these gets too much and I don't enjoy them even when done separately, weak upper body. (Might look beginner stuff for it without weights)

 I developed some belly fat  and some man boobs by working long hours and eating junks for past 8 months.

Will cardio be enough for me ? Any specific cardio I should follow ? 

Dont have time to run to gyms .

Ideally my weight is around 76-79kg but now I am near 98. Height is 6Ft

Go on the intermittent fasting which is easy to follow for working individuals. Weight training and cardio will get your desired result... I am not exercising at all yet I lost 4 kg with intermittent fasting..

Isnt that bad for health ? The more you fast the less you loose  weight coz our body tries to reserve all those calories . Also it drastically reduces metabolism which is bad for weight loss.

Why fast ? 

Just run 5 KMs a day (or less but at a decent speed increasing a km every week) and do planks.(increasing 10 seconds every day or whatever feels satisfying)

Nothing better than running and would also make you feel fresh, active and increase efficiency.

Or if you have 30 extra minutes you can do a core workout, at 90 kilos you ll have to start at beginner level which is very easy to follow in this video
