I don’t post in here but I was hoping you guys could be of some help.
I do olympic weightlifting three times a week, so I’ve got my lower body covered and have some nice development there, I would like to think!
My upper body is lagging though-in fact I’ve been told I look like a speed skater with my huge legs and average sized upper body, lol.
Right now I’ve added two upper body days a week on off days. Basically, building strength and size in my arms, chest, upper back, and shoulders are the main goals. I do pullups every time I lift, and my upper back gets a little work from the Olympic lifts too, but overall upper body is lagging way behind.
Any program suggestions? I’d really like to build scary powerful shoulders and upper back/lats, as well as some work for arms and chest. For some reason I suspect the ladies aren’t impressed by my large quads hidden under my jeans =)
My only ideas right now are to do a ton of pullups and shoulder presses but I need a more structured routine and I don’t know anything about bodybuilding or hypertrophy work.
I also weigh 195 at 6"1, so I want to gain about 36 pounds of muscle, 46 after losing 10 pounds of excess body fat on my body currently, so gaining a LOT of muscle in the near future (2-3 years) over my entire body is a good idea both for my weightlifting prospects and aestetics, another reason to want to gain some serious upper body size.
What would be a good program for me to do? Perhaps an ME and RE day, or something more simple? I have good recovery ability but don’t want it to interfere with my lower strength gains much if at all. Any dietary or “supplement” related advice of all kinds are welcomed as well.
All suggestions welcome!
