I have been a lurking this site for quite some time and decided that it was time to create an account. I have always been involved in sports especially running but, got started lifting weights almosta year ago, about 7 months following a plan and eating right. Here are some before and afters. I will try to get some back/leg shots up. Legs are a bit lacking due to running.
I always followed some sort of push/pull lower rep routine, because I was still playing sports and did not want soreness to be a real issue. Recently I have switched over to CT’s type of push/pull training and have implemented some of his new ideas. The results have been great so far.
I am a bit over 5’10 under 5’10.5 and usually weigh around 175-180 LBS started off at about 130-135 LBS. At my haveiest I was about 190 LBS.
Now this is the reason I was not sure if creating a profile was right especially in a BB site but, recently I feel like I have come to a fork in the road. Though I have been lifting consistently I have also kept running long distances and though I have made alright progress(IMO)I feel like I could have made much better progress if I had not ran at all. Problem is I love running/conditioning, unfortunately I think I have reached a point where I have to make a decision because food has become expensive and gains have stalled a bit. There have been lengths of time where I was eating 6k-7k calories a day.
So, I am not sure if I should stop running/a lot of conditioning or have a new goal that combines both. Anyone else face a similar problem?
