For the past few weeks I’ve been googling many of the questions I’ve been having, and trying to answer them myself, some of the impressions I’ve gotten may be completely off base, as I’ve got many conflicting pieces of information (internet - blessing and a pain!;)).
Anyway, I’m currently 6 foot, and 154lbs (70kg). A large, large percentage of this is fat, as I’m (apparently) very underweight, and yet still have no discernable six-pack!
My goal, is to look like this guy :
I’ve been following this for about three weeks : VideosHub | Popular Internet Videos
I can now bench about 40kgs, not great.
The impression I get, is that I should be concentrating on bulking - vis a vis eating as much as I can, about 4,000calories a day if I can manage it, about about 300g protein a day, and trying to do some low-rep, high-intensity exercises whilst at the gym.
I should try and bulk up to about 80kg, and then cut myself down, in order to get a body like the guy in the picture. Is this correct ?
I’m finding it very difficult to eat so much a day, although I’m now three weeks into working out, and I’ve gained 3kg (I was 70kg, now 73kg).
I’ve also bought some MassX drink mix, to gain some weight (it tastes HORRIBLE), and some protein shakes, which I haven’t really tried yet.
I can only make it to the gym about twice a week tops. I know, it sucks but my job takes up all my time, is it still possible ? I’ve been doing the exercises above almost daily for the past 2-3 weeks, and I think its time for a change now also (the only part of this exercise giving me trouble are the elevated pushups, which make my lower back hurt and the blood run to my head which is kind of uncomfortable). Can anyone recommend any other good, home programmes I could follow ?
Thanks a lot, and sorry for the length of my post ! I just wanted to confirm some things and ask some more !
