I have been lifting for about two years now, and the first year and a half it pretty much was crap. Now I am doing a 5x5 workout. My stats are as follows. I realize that my lifts are horribly low, working on getting them up.
Age : 21
Height : 5’11’’
Weight : 205 pounds
Deadlift : 265 lb
Front Squat : 165 lb ( I do front squats because I have to many back problems with back squats)
Bench Press : 150 lb
Overhead Press : 125 lb
(Not my max weight, I am still in a linear progression of weight)
(Goal)I am looking to get stronger and look better with my shirt off.
My diet is pretty clean. I don’t eat fast food. I don’t think I eat enough though and I am looking to change that. My question is should I eat above maintenance to gain some weight making my strength gains easier or do I have to much fat and should I eat below maintenance.
I realize that I am skinny fat and am looking to change that.
Edit : Added Age.
