Remember when you were back just starting and how you wish you could have had help to do everything properly? Well now you can help that person!
I began lifting at home about 6 months ago, starting with two 5kg dumbells. I did sit ups and press ups and some jogging, but didnt really take it that seriously. As of the last 4 months ive starting getting a lot keener about working out and have moved up from those 5kg dumbells to 12.5kg and been to the gym a lot in the last 3 months.
However im noticing much improvement in my physique to be honest. I dont seem to have put on that much muscle or lost that much fat. For most this would deter them from carrying on, but all its done for me is make me more determined then ever to achieve my goals, no matter what.
It sounds very newbish because I am at this. Il be honest, I really dont know what im doing when it comes to diet and working out. So instead of me running around doing everything wrong, im hoping someone feels kind enough to point me in the right direction and sort me out!
Heres some details that should be useful I hope, and give anyone an idea of what im after…
To look good! (who doesnt want to?!)
To improve myself for sports, mainly Rugby and athletics training, like sprinting
Age: Im 16, its a good age I hear to start, and some friends of mine who are a few years older and built up to hell started around this age.
Weight: 77kg, 169lbs,
Basicly, im after the whole ripped, not that huge look (you know, big shoulders, pecs, biceps and triceps, 6pack, legs, etc) also I need to be able move fast and have enough stamina to last a rugby game.
Im not THAT unknowledged to think I can get huge results in a short time, im expecting to be spending years, not weeks…
So if your still reading by this point and havent moved on thinking im just another 16 year old kid wanting to look big then thanks for so far!
Now the reason im lost, is beacuse I read that I need to bulk here and cut there and how different plans are crap etc etc. It would be great if somebody could just tell me what to eat on a typical day and what to lift and how long to run. I have some equipment at home, and pretty much access to a gym whenever I need.
Should I loose this last little bit of fat, or should I be eating more to build muscle?
My abs are really developed at the top, but almost nonexistent further down, what am I doing wrong?
Does lifting lighter weights, over a long time still cause the muscle to build up, but much more leaner and effiecent then your run of the mill lifting?
I understand most of you are hardcore so my stats are properly really really really unimpressive but try and treat me, the new guy nice
