Barebones routine

Exercising isn't high on my my priorities list, but I'd like to look decent without a shirt on.
What is the bare minimum I should be doing to escape skinnyfat mode? Preferably at home.

    >whats the bare minimum
    well since you aren't in a hurry, you dont have to rush this. just take another 20 years off and come back when it is a priority

      I expressed myself poorly. I understand the importance or exercising, and it's important enough to make me look into it, but 9 times out fo 10 I'd rather do something else. I'm just looking for something I could easily stick to given how easy it`d be to skip the workouts.

        >so give me a workout routine to make this go away
        take 20 years off, this is the actual routine. by this time, you will be in a position where your life may now be dependent on working out

    Maybe a 3 times a week program

    2 workouts, one that starts off with a squat and a lot of upper body work. Maybe something like a full body/upper/lower split.

      Never say this. The sticky is useless for aesthetics, we should abandon powerlifting stigmas

    The honest answer - calisthenics, cardio, diet.

    - Invest in a pull-up bar.
    - Do some of daily routine of push-ups, sit-ups, push-ups, sit-ups, etc.
    - Run 4-5K daily (or every other day).

    Because you aren't lifting, your diet will be even more important, minimize sugar, etc.

    If you are eating well and getting regular exercise as mentioned above, you will probably look "OK". You wont ever look big though.

    Chinups, pushups and leg raises. 5 sets x3 times per week, always to failure.

      Good post. For legs, do jump-squats or, if you have dumbbells, Bulgarian split squats or goblet squats.

      I'm doing a barebones workout consisting of 1 set of pushups, squats and leg raises every day to failure, with max intensity. It's simple, but I can do it consistently and there are no excuses because I don't need to have any equient because I can do it anywhere I go and it only takes 5-15 minutes depending on how long I rest.

      Mike Mentzer might get memed a lot but I really do believe that intensity matters. I can get as much out of bodyweight squats as I used to squatting 2plate if I just push it hard enough. And I can only do like 15-20 reps at that intensity because it's just so exhausting when you really blast it

        I don't think you understand what "intensity" means.

        I like bw lunges. Squats make me feel like my head is about to explode for some reason. Maybe I brace too hard and it spikes my blood pressure, dunno really.

        If you're going full minimalistard you should add grip variety to avoid RSI. I mix things up with angled grip chinups and neutral grip pullups.
        For pushups I use deadlift jack stands as ghetto paralletes. Extra ROM gives you crazy stretch. You can use cinder blocks or furniture to the same effect minus the grip benefits.

        Also I heard that inverted rows are a better antagonist movement to pushups than pullups because they both act on the horizontal plane. Makes sense but it's probably broscience.

          Just bracing incorrectly. It's not like taking a shit. It's just freezing your body posture like you would on a planche.

    Do 3 sets of chest to floor push ups and 4 sets of chest to bar pull-ups to failure. Do this 1 day on 1 day off.

    If you cannot pull up yet, do partials.

    Try to eat more protein.

    Bare minimum? Burpees. If you do a set of burpees to failure every day without fail, you'll get fitter. It's so easy and I would recommend it to everyone. Takes 1 minute, works out most of your body, and doesn't require equipment.

    If everyone in the world took 10 minutes to do 3 sets of burpees and 5 minutes of meditation every day, this world would be a heaven.

    Once you're ready, read the sticky. Until then, stick to burpees.

    eat like a decent person, but since you don't have the discipline even for that you should get a gym membership and start going to the gym, that external motivation will help you at least stick to it

    100 push ups in a day
    Max rom pull ups
    Chin Ups
    Bulgarian Squats

    They won't develop your traps tho, which is the nº1 indicator that you lift. So at least get some heavy ass kettlebells for DL/Rows/Shrugs.

    tf is this moronic shit, you don't need to spend 20 hrs per week. 3 hrs per week for a beginner is recommended regardless of priorities. Stop acting like you're fricking Jeff Bezos and can't spend 3-4 hours a week in a gym.

    If you approach it with this mindset trust me you'll never look good.

    I know people who take the gym seriously and they still look like shit. What makes you think you, with your shitty genetics considering you're skinny fat will look good "preferably at home" thinking pushups and sit ups will do squat.
