I’ve been at this weightlifting thing for sometime now.In highschool I was 6’ tall and 155 lbs…My freshmen year of college I started a program called scrawny to breawny. It kind of worked… I was 180lbs… however, alot of the weight I gained was fat. After my initial weight gain I got a job as a traveling wildland firefighter(hotshot)…long story short: I was constantly on the road, always hiking,long hours, alot of cardio. needless to say I lost alot of the fat. That was about 2 years ago, Im currently about 170 lbs. Ive tried the 5x5 program(not very successful,felt like I was getting nowhere), I’ve built a few of my own programs(unsuccessful)
I’ve even tried German volume training recently and it was definitely not for me(Didnt get a pump, forearms and wrists too weak for all those sets, felt like I was just burning too many calories) I wanna start a program that finally swells me up without the 10lbs of body fat.I’d like to find a program that’s really challenging and gives me that ass kicking pump feeling.I’d like to noticeably put on 10-15 lbs in the next 6 months… Any suggestions?
few more details:I’m willing to work hard, I plan on adding more calories, my testosterone was 800 last time I checked, I dont do any cardio, I sit at a desk for work.current sups: whey golden standard, creatine 5mg a day, bccas, fish oil, zinc, multi. I’m also balling on a budget here…cant afford steak and organic fruits n veggies.
The photo attached is a before and now…160lbs-170lbs…I dont look bad, but I’d like to get suuuwwwwoooolen!
