So this is face progress from 265lbs in April 2014 to 225lbs April 2015, which is about 40lbs in the last year. My highest weight was around 290lbs so the total is about 65lbs. It’s mostly been a diet change and pumped up the exercise up completely. I cut a lot out of my diet, like fast food and soda and whatnot, and tried to cut down my meal size. My exercise went from 10 minutes of cardio and some lifting to an hour just on the treadmill, 20 minutes on the bike, 10 on the stair climber and lifting almost every time I go to the gym.
Climbing is a great exercise. If you have the right shoes, it will make it more efficient. Your climbing shoes should fit your bare feet tightly, allow you to stand, but not walk very comfortably. These tight shoes will give you control over your climbing and allow you to better use your leg muscles.
