I've read a lot of the "for beginners" articles here and I thought they were really helpful. Although I'm not sure they are matching my goals. I was hoping some of you could give me a little bit of starting guidance to meet my goals.
I'm 21, only 5'4 and 115 lbs. My metabolism is ridiculous. I have been looking to put on some weight/muscle mass. I'm in pretty good shape now. I have some muscle definition, but mostly because I'm skinny.
I've been doing p90x (I know it isn't popular around here, but I needed the structure/guidance).
I have also been drinking BSN True Mass protein shakes.
I have been inconsistent with my workouts, but it is mostly because I don't really know what I am doing. I don't know much about weight lifting or at least, the weight lifting I should be doing. I'm really not sure if p90x will get me where I want to go or if I should mix it with some lifting routines of my own.
I'm not looking to get huge. I'm honestly too short and want to look proportionate.
I'm really looking for any starting off points like...
- Any good suggested work out plans? (I need structure to follow)
- Supplements I should check out?
- Any other "newbie" tips I should keep in mind?
I really appreciate any help you guys can give. Thanks.
