    Not really. While I encourage you to do whatever you are doing to get on this path towards a better you. If this is all you can manage, then I don't want to discourage you and have you stop doing it, because yes, it will get you there, but it's going to take for-fucking-ever.

    There are far better, more efficient and maybe even easier ways to get this type of body. Walking then jogging then running with a proper diet will be more effective than just doing bodyweight exercizes if you're obese.

    With that said, good bait.

      I'm already on caloric deficit and good diet mode
      How can running help me build more muscle than push ups?

        You can build as much muscle as you want to, it’s not going to show under all the fat which is why it’s better to focus more on losing fat than it is to focus on building muscle, especially through the methods you’ve inquired about which are going to create very small amounts of muscles over a very long period of time.

        That pic you are referencing he doesn't have a shit ton of muscle on his frame, what he does have is low bodyfat.

        What you are asking is how to get is muscle definition, which can only be attained by low bodyfat. Don't believe me? Go look at your average powerlifter. Those bloatlords are fucking strong as shit, have a ton of muscle and are huge, but good luck getting that look you posted.

        You want low bodyfat. I'd guess Brad is hovering around 10% in that pic, likely lower.

          If you are obese already, you will never look like this. Maybe just maybe for a real short period amount of time if dedicate yourself for a long time. And you might aswell become a millionare if you dedicate yourself that much. It's the very low bf% is what makes him look so good, and an obese person wouldn't be able go down that low because his genetics won't allow him, if it did, he wouldn't be obese in the first place. If I was you, I would focus on getting builtfat. At least take advantage of your genetics, you can easily get big. Of course you still have to cut but it won't be hard as this one.

          They say it's around 6%, he is sitting at 155 lbs at 5'11 in fight club.

            OP's parents are probably fat but 99.9% of his ancestors up to his great-grandparents weren't. It has nothing to do with genetics. There's no reason he can't get reasonably lean (12%-15%) and keep it long-term. If he actually finds a good reason to go lower (say he becomes a hardcore runnerfag) then he can easily stay single-digits BF% year-round.

        Go to the fasting thread. You'll lose it a lot quicker and you won't have to do bullshit cardio that burns 10 calories an hour. Exercising with the intent to lose weight is fucking stupid. You have to expend a massive amount of effort to get basically nothing in return. This will almost ensure that you will get burnt out on it and give up. Exercise to improve cardio and build muscle, not to lose weight. Fast to lose weight. Eat when you are exercising, bulking, and/or maintaining.

        Cut the weight then start running when you eat normally again. Runners bodies are more athletic in general. It builds lots of small muscles that you don't necessarily see, but still contribute somewhat to appearance and a lot to overall health

        even if you lose weight, you will still have disgustingly looking loose skin, and you will gain it all back shortly anyway because of fat cell retention.
        shouldn't have become a fatty for the first place. gluttony has a price.

        Thanks

        Fasting fixes loose skin and the excess fat cell problem. You don't have to look like shit after you're done. Start now and you'll have less or no loose skin toward the end. Just continue to fast to lose more loose skin and fat cells if needed.

        This man speaks the truth. Muh genetics is complete made up fairy tale bullshit that didn't even exist before modern invention

        You absolutely WILL have loose skin and excess fat cells if you don't fast and it may take you several years to get it off if you do it the way everyone else does. Hell, it may never come off. There's no reason to put food in your body if you are trying to lose weight, unless you're already jacked and have gains to lose. Sounds like you don't. Just cut all the food entirely and get it done faster. Get rid of thise fat cells too. If you don't, you will be hungry as fuck when you're done and you will just eat all of it back within 5 years if you can even hold out that long

    Yes. Ignore the gays in the thread. Go on a carnivore diet and add other BW exercises, esp. pullups, as well as some kind of cardio.

    No, if you want to stick to pushups and squats you should atleast mix up close-grip pushups, regular pushups, and a handstand pushup variation for better upper body coverage. You're also not working back so you should add pullups. Then leg raises for core.

    this is the training regime Brad Pitt was under when preparing for his role in fight club. I bet 90% of the retards saying "its just low bf bro" cant even get close to this:

    Monday — Chest
    Push-ups — Three sets of 25 reps
    Bench press — 25, 15 and eight reps at 165, 195, 225 lbs
    Nautilus press — 15 reps at 80, 100, 130 lbs
    Incline press — 15 reps at 80, 100, 130 lbs
    Pec deck — 15 reps at 60, 70, 80 lbs

    Tuesday — Back
    25 pull-ups — Three sets to fatigue
    Seated rows — Three sets at 75, 80, 85 lbs
    Lat pull downs — Three sets at 135, 150, 165 lbs
    T-bar rows — Three sets at 80, 95, 110 lbs

    Wednesday – Shoulders
    Arnold press — Three sets at 55 lbs
    Laterals — Three sets at 30 lbs
    Front raises — Three sets at 25 lbs

    Thursday – Biceps & Triceps
    Preacher curls — Three sets at 60, 80, 95 lbs
    EZ curls cable — Three sets at 50, 65, 80 lbs

    Push downs — Three sets at 70, 85, 100 lbs

    Friday & Saturday – Cardio
    Treadmill — one hour at 80-90 percent of maximum heart rate

    all of this while dieting and maintaining a 5-6% bf some sources say
