On Tuesday I just got a membership at this place called Uptown Fitness. Really nice place. I’ve never really lifted before. Right now I’m a freshman in college and the only other time i lifted was for 4 months my senior year of highschool on protein shakes and Animal Pak.
Just recently I got back into lifting because I’m in need to get really big but I haven’t had the proper training or help with what im doing so I go into the gym and just use weights by benching, curling, military press with dumbells, and i just used random machines that I know will be working out what I need that day.
On tuesday I did back and biceps. Wednesday I had to take off. But on that day off my biceps and forearm felt attached and i couldnt extend my arms… But I thought it was just the regular soreness so today (Thursday) I got up at 7:30, ate me regular eggs and then went to the gym for shoulders chest and triceps… Throughout the day my arms were hurting HARDCORE. It wasn’t like the sores I got in highschool, I feel really harsh pain on the inside of my elbow. When I extend my arm, it feels like its stretching out my bicep and forearm and it wont extend very far or it hurts big time.
I’m 6’ tall 145 lbs (yeah thin) I take creatine after every workout. Am I overlifting? Can anyone give me like a workout I should try? I haven’t been doing really sets… I just do like 10-8-6-4 while increasing the weight inbetween sets. I bench 120 easy and when I do dumbell military press I max at 40 lbs each hand. I’m trying to gain as much weight as I can as fast as I can. I can currently take Animal Pak, NO2, Creatine, or Protein Shakes, whichever sounds like it can work I have all 4 of those at my house I just don’t know what I should take. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
