This is my first post and let me start by saying that I am delighted (and relieved) to have found this website. I see some very good advice and am hoping hoping for the best.
I am 25yrs old, 5" 9’ and currently weigh about 130lbs. I started working out about 3 months ago and have gained almost 15lbs since. Here is my workout routine:
3 chest , 3 tricep variations each
3 shoulder , 3 bicep variations each
In reality, I am able to work out only about twice a week. I am however progressively able to lift more and more weight.
I have ended up with a pot belly and absolutely no muscle gain anywhere else. Blame it on crappy genetics if you would like. My arms are wafer thin. I find this disgusting.
On top of all this, I am a vegetarian and believe me, it is hard to get so much protein from a vegetarian diet. My diet mostly consists of rice, potatoes, wheat bread, corn flakes, and plenty of milk (about half a litre a day). Throw in a pizza here and there and now you know where the pot belly comes from.
I am very much looking to getting some advice from people here.
