Hello everyone. i just joined up tonight and was hoping for a little advice from some of you who are much more experienced in this area than me. I started working out just over a month ago with some 5 kg dumbbells that I bought doing different types of exercises I could find(including bicep curls and squats among other things). I also took T Boosters 6x daily for a month while doing these workouts and worked out maybe about 2 times a day 5 days a week but I wasn’t very strict so the pattern was somewhat irregular. I also had a 50-70g average protein intake on the days when I worked out but this was also irregular and I didn’t do this on the days when I didn’t train. My strength definitely increased and the workouts became gradually easier but I’m not sure if I gained any muscle mass. My arms looked slightly stronger.
My weight just goes up and down between 36kg and 38kg and continues to do so. I’ve just had a week break after my boosters ran out but am planning to start again tomorrow with a similar regime but this time stricter on myself. I’m planning on doing 2 moderate workouts a day on all days unless I really need to rest. These workouts will be different exercises with my dumbbells same as before. As I hopefully gain strength I will increase the number of sets I am doing in a workout. I will order a new batch of boosters and take them 6x daily as I did before for another month. My protein intake will be 80-100g everyday. I will limit my calories to 1000 as I also did before to avoid gaining any body fat in the process. I also have carbs and don’t count them but my fat intake will be kept low(under 15g daily).
Also, I am vegan so most of my protein comes from vegan soy/wheat meat and quorn vegan meat along with lentils and all sorts of beans(lentil and bean pastas as well) plus high protein veg like peas. I also eat high protein bread for sandwiches and high protein crackers. I’m planning on doing this for about a month before revising and amending it again.
Do you guys think this is a good enough plan and be effective for me(as in I gain muscle mass plus hopefully lose any fat). I want to actually be able to see and feel the changes with my body so I look stronger and more muscular(not weak and fragile) but still remain lean. Any advice you can give me will be highly appreciated. I am just a beginner and really need it.
