Alright I’ll skip the drama: In 2011 I had a six pack and I was able to bench 125lbs for 20reps and I was deadlifting 205lbs. I barely did squats. I’m starting back on Sunday, and I need some help.
It’s not like I don’t have any experience though; I used to do a chest/tricep (workout A) and a back/bicep split (workout b) and did shoulders and abs for every workout, and I would hit the treadmill for 10mins and do a set of 20 pushups as a warm up. I was 5’11 and 160lbs
at 20yrs old and didn’t work my legs in as much as I should have.
Now, I’m 28yrs at 185lbs. My goals are strength (a 700lb deadlift, a 315lb bench, and hell if I know what a good goal for a squat is) and more muscle mass (ambitious, I guess). I used to add weight every set to the bar after reading once about how they used to do it in West Side, and I think that’s the approach I want to go, but again, it has been a long time.
It’s important to me to build up my strength and endurance, but I also want to put on slabs of muscle.
I don’t know how to plan my workout and what my protein/carb/fat intake should be on my off days and what they should be on the days I’m busting my ass. Any advice?
