So, today I decided to start weigh-lifting… consistently at least, 6 days a week. I have been doing it off and on since I left high-school. I used to weight-lift for football and track, but only pre/post/during season. I am going to take it more seriously, and did a bunch of research on muscles, how they work, how to grow my muscles. I learned about slow/fast twitch muscles fibers. I am also learning about the different muscles we have in our body so I make sure that I work out everything. I am starting my weight lifting journey in roughly 5-6 hours and I wanted some more information about weigh-lifting… or at least directed to articles about it and books! Also, advice… or any information you can give me! I will be active in this community, because I read that it was a great website to be on, so here I am!
Nice to meet you all!
Also, if this helps with advice. I am 5’11, slender @ 170lbs. I eat high-protein diets including eggs, steak, chicken, salmon every week… Including protein bars/milk… I also eat a lot of rice and vegetables… My target calorie goal is 3k-3,500 calories per day.
Goals: Get stronger(well rounded), gain mass, weigh 200-250lb (healthy weight), Have a stronger core, be healthy, increase flexibility.
