Hi all. I started training about 3 years ago and everything was going well. I then got a concussion and I couldn't lift for a long time. Id get really dizzy and lifting was not a real option for me until i got better. In this time, ive gained a lottt of weight, and not healthy. I'm 5'7 and 190 pounds. I used to weigh 170. Im not too worried about the weight per se, but I know little, or any of it is muscle gains.
I recently started working out again, but I'm a bit lost and need advice on the direction I should be heading in. I know that I should gain more muscle before attempting any type of cut, but at the same time, I feel as if I need to lose the fat that ive gained, or at least some of it.
I don't know what type of workouts I should be performing in the gym... Ive been lifting for a couple months now, but not seeing any real changes. My diet is mostly clean, but Ive been changing my workouts and lifting without any direction.
I am thinking of just losing the weight and starting a bulk once I lose it, but is it better to train for hypertrophy? Should I still be looking to add more muscle, even though ive gained so much fat?
