I thought I would put my question on a forum because I have been training for a number of years on and off. I have never really made a decent amount of progress and I would like to correct what I have been doing.
I am currently in my early 20's and have been doing various forms of weight training for a while but often through various reasons I haven't kept it up for a long period. I have a stressful job so I find it hard to fit in workouts during the week.
I have tried a number of workout programs but find that I often get stuck and then my motvation wanes. I have tried things like stronglifts etc.
I have two goals. One I would like to add some muscle and two I would like to be able to see some abs.
My current routine is I am doing 5x5 chest and back one day followed by legs and shoulders the next.
Deadlifts (I change and do rows on alternate days instead)
One type of Squat (front or back depends)
Press (Sitting Down or Overhead Press)
I then do other supplement exercises like tricep extensions and curls)
I find it hard to put on weight and would say that I have a kind of skinny fat look to myself. Most of my bodyfat is situated on my body (chest and stomach). My arms and legs actually look okay.
I think a big area is that I never know what to eat. Also because I am busy and im not great at cooking it takes me a long time to make things. I really just need food with minimal prep and maximum eating time.
I need some structure and was wondering if somebody could help.
