6’4 / 270 lbs / bf %?? / Athletic build
First I would like to say hello to everyone. I have been reading as much as I could in the short time I have joined this board. I have been lifting on and off through the years and finally decided to get serious. I just have a question on morning training and eating.
When I wake up in the morning (5:00am) I almost can’t eat anything for about a hr (No appetite at all) but in that time frame I am already at the gym and lifting. Is it ok just to have a Metabolic Drive shake when I get back home (6:15am)? Also how much should I be eating through the day? As you can see I am not oppose to eating lol (270lb)? I have cleaned up my diet dramatically and feel much better already but just not sure on how much I should be taking in calorie wise. My goal would be to get down to 250lbs lean muscle.
Right now my lifting schedule is:
Mon - Chest / Back / Abs
Tues - Legs / Shoulder
Wed - Chest / Arms / Abs
Thurs - Rest
Fri - Legs / Back / Abs
Sat - Shoulders / Arms
Sun - Rest
I’m not sure if that is good or not been doing that split for about 2wks.
I’m not really sure of my max lifts. I know I can do the 95lbs dumbbell press for 5 reps I’m not sure what that translates into. 2 knee surgeries in a 5 yr span and a recent knee injury has kept me from Squats but I’m hoping to get at that this week starting off light and working my way up. Only can do about 3 pullups and will find out about deads this week.
Any help, comments, Jokes welcome.
Thx. Sorry for the long first post.
