Hey guys, long time lurker, first time poster here. I've reached a point in my training where I'm kinda confused on how to work towards my goals and need some advice. I started training about 8 months ago, hadnt set foot in a gym before that.
First month I did an upper/lower body split + twice a week bodyweight stuff, after that I switched to some crappy 3day split (sue me for believing in what bb magazines have to say). Then all summer I did bodyweight training, mostly everything that can be done on bars, spent all september training with a PT friend who taught me how to squat properly, and since then I've been doing SL5x5. It hasnt got me much results though, and I dont really enjoy it so I want to switch to something else. I only fixed my nutrition about 3 weeks ago so I guess thats probably why SS didnt affect me as much as it did other people. I also got stuck around 190 on the squat and after deloading by 10% twice I still couldnt rep it for 5x5. suppose I could blame my nutrition for that though
My stats when I started training were really bad - I was about 6ft 125, couldnt do a single pullup or dip. Not much better now though - I'm currently sitting at 140lb,I can do about 15 chins and 20 dips with good form, squat 225, dead 275, bench about 160, press 115 and row 190. My longtime goals are to get to around 170lb with low bf (im an ecto and never sever seem to gain any fat no matter what and how much I eat) and work on strength gains while maintaining that weight. I'll also be starting muaythai training in feb so I'll be doing a lot of core (my core is really weak stability wise, maybe not as much strength wise) and mobility work.
So in short, after these 8 months of on and off training how would you guys advise me to work toward my goals? What routine should I follow? Thanks in advance and sorry for the wall'o'text
