Hey looking for a little advice or some tips here.
I’m 41 and as a coach have access to a great weight training facility.
I began HRT about a month ago and am dosing Androgel daily. I decided that I might as well take full advantage of it and get back into bodybuilding.
I’ve taken the before photos (not too pretty). I am 6’2" and weigh 310lbs. I’m guessing here but I believe my LBM to be about 180lbs.
I’m going to list the workout I do and the supplements I’m using and will consider any advice on how to tweak or add to these to achieve better results.
I’m doing a split routine with the following lifts on Monday-Thursday: Bench, T-Bar Row, Lat Pulls, Tricep Ext, Dumbell Incline, Flyes, Super 21 (curls). On Tuesday-Friday I do: Leg Press, Leg Curl, Leg Ext, and Ab work. NOTE: I’m recovering from a recent back injury and will be replacing leg press with squats as soon as I can handle them.
Supplements: Androgel by prescription, Bodyfortress Whey Protein (114g on workout days, 38g on recovery days), 3000mg of L-Luceine daily.
Also do an hour of light cardio (swimming for now) on workout days and often on recovery days as well.
Again I’m 41, a type 2 diabetic, and morbidly obese. Those are the disadvantages.
I have a slow metabolism so tend to add muscle mass quickly, that is the advantage if it can be called one.
Thanks ahead of time for any and all tips and pointers!
