I’ve been lifting pretty steadily for the past 2 years or so, and have seen myself become stronger and a lot bigger. Previous to lifting, I was a very skinny kid, but I gained a lot of weight through puberty and noticed I was getting slightly heavy so I started lifting. I’m 18 now and weigh around 180 lbs. I don’t really know what my body fat is but if I had to say it would be around 10-15%. I have a lot of natural strength; I’ve only squatted a handful of times but can max out at 425 lbs and the same with dead lifting and I’ve maxed out around 245 lbs.
I started benching at 135 lbs and can get to 205 lbs on a good day. Even after lifting for 2 solid years, I haven’t seen myself become all that much more cut. My arms have gotten bigger and my back has become a little wider, but I still don’t have abs. I have been told numerous times that I have a perfect body to become ripped, but I just don’t know how to take that next step. When I go to the gym and workout I have this amazing drive to lose weight and become more cut, I work myself for a solid 70 minutes with little breaks and 90% of the time I leave the gym absolutely dead.
As a teenager, I think I eat pretty well. I don’t eat that much fast food and I try and consume as much vegetables and fruits as possible during the day. I really want to take my lifting to the next level and become more cut and I was wondering if anyone could give me and suggestions.
