Hello guys, I’m 18 years old, this is my first post, I’m 139 lb, 5’8 f; and after a whole year without managing to be regular and consistent in my training, I’m finally i’m making it for these last two months, and I feel pretty good about myself, because it’s something I tried so many times and I couldn’t achieve the regularity I was looking for…I believe that I have a solid base; I have a decent technique on the compound lifts, and also on the bodyweights basics. Of course this not takes away that I’m still taking my first steps in this lifting life.
I started in mid February, with a total body routine, training three days a week. Now I’m starting with an upper-lower split, four days a week. Why I changed so fast my routine? Well this is the issue:
I’m really short on weights, and i don’t know how can I progress, being a beginner, with this little handicap…I only have about 70 lb in plates, precisely 69.6 lb. this with two plates of 25 lb, and smaller plates that complete the 19.6 lb. I also have a barbell, a bench, a chin up bar, and two dumbbells. It’s all I have. So I know you guys will understand that it is a little bit frustrating can’t do more than 70 lb on all the big lifts.
As a beginner with just two months of regular training, I don’t know what to do to keep progress.
So I don’t know guys if you can give me some advice to progress with this weights, on this upper-lower split.
PD: An extra question: With the limited weights i have, how much do you think i can improve?
