I’ve spent the last several months losing almost 30 lbs of fat. I’m 5’9" and I went from about 178 to 150 and from a 33" to a 29" waist by cleaning up my awful diet and getting in the gym two or three times a week. I’m probably in the best shape of my life at 30yrs old. Now it’s time to put some pounds back on the right way.
My goal is to gain some muscle mass/strength. I don’t want to get huge, but I’m definately on the thin side of where I want to be. I can only get to the gym Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Here’s what I’m currently doing:
Mon, Tue, Thus:
Lat Pulldowns 3x8
Bent Rows 3x8
Calf Extension 3x8
20 to 30 minutes cardio on eliptical or treadmill.
2500 to 3000 Cal/day:
I supplement w/ protien shakes, bars, take 5g creatine daily, multivitamin, salmon oil and chromium.
I take one day off from my deit every week, but don’t go absolutely nuts.
So… Am I eating enough?, working out enough? Is it okay to be doing this back to back Monday and Tuesday? Should I limit my cardio or is this okay? Anything else you can think of?
