You’re 6’1 or 6’2, no? A weightlifter at your height would have to be at least 185 ripped to be competitive.[/quote]
I’m actually 5’6 lol, so I’m thinking the 160 range would be perfect for me. I’m 163, but I’m closer to like 20% bf (maybe a lil less or lil more), so I’m thinking really packing muscle and being 10-12% bf would probably have me in the 160s maybe low 170s.
I don’t ever plan on being a world class athlete lol. But my initial goals for Snatch is BW and for C&J is 225lbs. I’m guessing to hit those numbers easily I need to squatting closer to 300 (at least for the C&J). But my lifetime goals are to hit 225lb Snatch and 315lb C&J so I’m guessing in order to hit those numbers I need to be squatting closer to 400lbs?
I guess the thing I don’t understand is how do they pack that much muscle without gaining much fat/bulky mass. Is it really just working below 5 for rep ranges?
I’m of Nepali/Indian descent, so my body type is Asian for sure lol. So for past 2 months I’ve been just doing Front Squats, OHP, Deadlifts, Rows, Pull Ups, Ab work, farmers walks. No bench or biceps or anything like that. I’m starting to get that “oly lifter look” in terms of my quads/ass/hamgstrings are blowing up, my back is getting thick, shoulders are starting to round out, but no chest haha.
