I am a 31 year male who would like to get fit for the first time in his life, I’m at time where I’m trying to leave my negative mindset behind and embrace more positivity. I am about 180 lbs. and skinny fat. I don’t know my exact body fact percentage.
My goals are to gain muscle and lose fat (about 10lb). Which is why I am here asking advice from experienced weight lifters .
After looking up “What is the best for a beginner” and also the fact that I’m 31 and not 20 I have come up with a sample upper/lower routine and a diet.
My mind set is too keep things simple because I am new, so my diet may seem bland but I think it’s easy to cook and cheap (I’m on a budget). Please refer to my spreadsheet I made. I tried my best to calculate portions and find nutritional info. Considering my goals, is there something you would change?
For my workout I have chosen and upper/lower routine that I have also uploaded. What do you think?
Or would something Jason Blaha’s Ice Cream Fitness 5x5 Novice Program be more preferential
Whole body workout?
Thank you in advance.
