I’m a new member here (been a member at bb.com forums for a while but that forum’s as useless as tits on a bull). I suppose I’ll start by giving some background info on myself…
I’m 19 years old, 5’11", 165lbs and been lifting seriously for probably 9 months. I’m currently taking whey protein, casein protein, multivitamin, fish oil, green tea and am going to return to taking creatine soon. I’m consuming approx. 250g protein, 350g carbs, 60g fat.
My diet consists of protein coming from shakes, tuna, chicken, red meat and milk. Carbs from oats, brown rice and wholemeal bread and fats from fish oil and whatever else I eat.
To be brutally honest I am pretty disappointed in my progress thus far. Although I have made gains, I know I should have achieved more. I do gain weight, but the problem for me is the ratio of muscle-fat gain. I’m not even going to bother listing any lifts because they’re pretty pathetic. I was at my strongest around 3 months ago, but since then things have stalled on pretty much every exercise.
I started with a 5-day split, then moved to a 4-day split. I am thinking about starting the following 3-day split:
Day 1: Chest/Delts/Triceps
Day 2: OFF
Day 3: Legs
Day 4: OFF
Day 5: Back/Biceps
Day 6: OFF
Day 7: REPEAT
I will (as I have been doing previously) concentrate on the basic exercises like Bench, Military Press, Dips, Skullcrushers, Squats, Leg Press, Pull-ups, Deadlifts and Barbell Rows. I will also do high-intensity cardio 2 times a week for 20min to prevent fat gain which I seem prone to.
Any comments/advice/criticism is welcome.
