I used to work out with a friend of mine but some things changed and whatnot and I've been out of it for about a month now. Well I've decided to start back up on my own. Well I'm 5'8", 265 and have 30% body fat.. I've never worked out by myself before and I'm not sure if I should start off by cutting down fat or if I should bulk up and then lose. I really want to bulk up but I'd rather do whatever is more beneficial.
A few months ago I had a fitness assessment done that told me my body fat percentage and how much muscle I supposedly had which at the time was 190lbs if that makes any difference for the advice. I saw a little bit of change when I was working out with my friend but nothing really significant. The hardest thing for me is the dieting I'm good for about three weeks and then usually fall off the bandwagon. But basically I'm looking for some friendly advice on where I should start and how many calories and such I should be taking in. Thanks to everyone in advance for the help!
