Hello everyone. Hello Mr Carter.
I am training 1 and a half year. I am 33 years old, 185 cm height, 82-83 kg, around 20% body fat (see pics below). I have a full time job. 9am to 5pm. Monday to Friday. My main goals are hypertrophy and drop body fat. I don’t care about single reps, being super strong, hitting big numbers on big 3.
For the past 1,5 year I am training mostly with 3x full body (Monday, Wednesday, Friday or Saturday). A problem that I have is that I cannot stick to program. I did Stevie Reeves style workout for a few weeks, then I changed to Leroy Colbert full body workout, then to 5x5 style of training, then to a full body workout with supersets, dropsets, pre exhaust and other special techniques. Now I decide to get serious about my workouts and my diet.
There is to much information out there about training that I am really confused. Especially about training as a natural. You know… Frequency is better for a natty, build strength on big 3, naturals must build strength first, low reps heavy weight for natties, etc… I read that progressive overload and effort are more important.
Some of my lifting stats are: Squats 80kgs x 10 reps, Bench press 67,5kgs x 5 reps, Military press 40kgs x 10 reps , Leg press 140kgs x 12 reps, Static lunges 20kgs in each hand x 10 reps, Dumbbell romanian dl 20 kgs in each hand x 12 reps. I know… I am weak…
I read the articles “5 Years of Insane Gains” , “The 4 Dumbest Things Beginners Do” , GMM and “The Real Driver For Muscle Growth”.
Obviously I can’t decide which one of the workouts of these articles is better for me.
I think I need someone to tell me to stick to a program for a long period of time and start seeing results. Like “Do that for six months and don’t change anything”. I have time to train 3 time a week.
