Hey guys, i’ve scoured about every inch of this site for about a year. After getting a lot of info I decided I just needed to set it aside for a while, and use whatever I absorbed. So, for about 6 months i’ve been hitting up a serious and big diet and lifting one of every three days. I have put on 15lbs in that time and have gone from 5’7" 125 to 140. My body fat % has gone down and im now at ~12%. I’m 22 years old.
My diet revolves around chicken breast, lean beef, fruits, vegetables, pasta/rice (usually just post-workout), and protein supplements in the morning (with oats) and before bed.
That said, my workout regimen is not very sophisticated. Basically my situation is this: I don’t have access to a gym and my weight set consists of a barbell, a bench, and a rickety old rack.
I’m limited with equipment and also I’ve been trying to keep things BASIC so I can stay motivated and just hit the weights with intensity every third day. It’s also taken me a while to get the form down for my lifts
So this is what i do each session:
I’m getting stronger, having fun, and my sessions are intense. I’m really pumped to be making strength gains so I love to get out there and move weights around. I add 5 lbs to the deadlift each session, my squat progression is slightly slower, and my bench progression slower than squat.
I’m not looking for a perfect program, but just something that is effective and fun. What can I do to make my program more effective (for getting big and strong) but still keep it basic (i’m not ready for something complicated - i just started to get the form down for these lifts and would gradually like to add more if it’s a good idea)?
Any advice appreciated!
I love this place!
