A bit about myself first:
Back in 2007, I weighed close to 240 lbs. in the beginning of January. I gradually lost weight through the summer working and eating usually one meal a day after work. I had lost from 60 to 70 pounds before fall. Due to my lack of eating, knowledge, and proper intake, the majority of weight loss was in muscle mass. I began looking physically poor, and my biceps were pretty much non-existent and my shoulders became boney. Tons of my strength was lost.
Fast forwarding to presently, I’ve been reading up more and more about proper bodybuilding (if only I would’ve done so before losing the 240 lbs.). I’ve been working out regularly, increasing the quantity of meals, and trying to grasp exactly how much of protein/carbs/fat/etc I need.
Unfortunately, there isn’t a gym in or nearby the town I live in. So I’m stuck with a 40 lbs. and 30 lbs. dumbbell. So I’m somewhat limited in that aspect.
Here’s my current stats:
Age: 18 yrs.
Weight: 178 lbs.
Supplement: Whey Protein
Ultimate goal: Regain muscle mass, toning up, and lowering my BF%.
Here’s a current bodyshot:
Any suggestions on what I can do; whether it be with the lack of equipment, the calorie intake, or basically the first proper step. All helpful suggestions would be appreciated.
