Well, I am going for a cruise with my family in febuary. Long way off eh? Gives me plenty of time to train. Thus the reason for this post. Some background first…
I am a very active guy, and I am even runinig a marathon on sunday. I primarily train for strength and overall athletics/conditining. I do a bit of bodybuilding stuff, but not much. Since training for the marathon I am lighter than normal, but I am a fairly strong guy. I have plenty of stamina too.
Now, basicly I want to look better for the vacation. I dont nesccesarily HAVE to have abs or whatever as long as they are at the very least a bit toned, so bascily I want to be bigger and more toned overall. My normal weight is 190, my weight now is 183 at a hight of 5’9".
I am thinking that if I slowly work my way back up to 190 or a little better from where my weight is now, and use bodybuilding techniques to get there, my overall body would look better. However, I am not sure. So, can anyone with more experience in bodybuilding give me some help? What about high vs low volume? Can I combine my training now with bodybuilding as well? Thx a lot,I will most likely have more questions, and heres a few stats below.
Dips @ 190 + 60lbs=250lbs for 7 reps
Pullups @ 190=24 reps
Handstand pushups @ 190 + 10lbs+=200lbs for 5 reps
24in box jump squat @ 190=31reps
Leg press @ 500lbs=15 reps
(These stats are not the entirety of my workout, just the ones I am most proud of.)
