I started going to the gym 8 months ago for the first time in my life. Rightly or wrongly I self diagnosed myself as skinny fat. My goals are aesthetic, mainly wanting to put on size. I want to look more in proportion with my height and fill out my clothes better. I am 6ft3 and weighed 183.2lbs when I started, I now weigh 221.4lbs. For the first 6 months I followed a beginner push, pull, legs routine going to the gym 3 times a week. I have now moved onto an upper/lower split going 4 times a week.
For supplementation I take 2 servings of whey protein and 5g creatine mono hydrate a day. 8 months later I am pleased with the weight and size I have been able to put on but not sure what I need to do now? Should I be at a calorie deficit or surplus? I want to reduce the fat in my midsection or get better definition there but worry about loosing the size I have put on. Would appreciate any help you guys can provide
