i am completely clueless on how i should proceed further. Seniors, please guide me on a path.
my body stats:
5’4 ( 167cm )
59.65 kgs ( 131.5 lbs )
25 years old, asian male.
I was on SS since feb’2019. max stats that i could reach ( all 1rm ) :
dead - 145kg ( 320lbs )
bench - 95kg ( 210lbs )
squats - 120kg ( 265 lbs )
ohp - 60kgs ( 135lbs)
I have been working out since 2015, on/off, never consistent enough, never did a linear progression before; that’s why picked SS.
been about 2 months since i last went to the gym because life.
now i will resume working out but i am not sure what program i should pick or what should be my goal.
there are 3 things that i am sure about:
- i want to focus on getting big numbers on those 3 compounds lift i.e i want to get stronger
- but then i also want to get in shape i.e lose fat
- and i also miss doing other exercises
Regarding my body fat:
the other day i talked to person in my gym, he has competed and has won a lot of prices. taking his experience in consideration, i asked him to estimate my body fat.
dude said that my body fat is about 20-25% and that when i lost weight, my body just lost the weight but not the fat and that i will never be able achieve the physique that i want on my own and that i will have to take paid coaching from somebody if i want to accomplish something.
this left really demotivated and i am doubting myself now. So i want to ask you guys whether there is any truth to what that guy said.
here are my pictures:
