Hey guys, i can’t believe how much I improved my thought process and my nutrition in only 10 days.
I agree with most of what you say and I found my own thread back by doing some more research on training methods. I was reading it, and then it striked me: This is me!
I am logged in, so I can respond haha
Lets look at your questions and answers:
-the info about yourself is piss poor. How many years have you been training now? Some numbers are also necessary here: height, weight, good lifts, athletic career and milestones etc
My height is: 6 feet, weight: Hm I don’t know. Never really cared about it, i read somewhere in the past that muscles ways more then bodyfat, so whats the use in telling my weight? I think its around 80, could be way less though
I have been training a couple of years now but never took my nutrition serious. Now I dived into the world of Fats, Carbs and don’t know the english word, I am seeing way more results then before
The best performece, athletic wise, i set was getting into the Navy seals of my own country, unfortunately i fucked up my arm really badly and I had to come back from that,
never really did
but since a year now I am really getting back in shape but I am still struggling a bit with what to do in the gym
What I understand now that ‘going for failure’ isn’t really the best thing for me to do? Since i do thai boxing the days between my gym sessions I don’t feel like recovering for days and not being able to go 100% at my thai box lessons
I also do mostly compound excersises, since my goal is to get back into a BF % around 8-12 and to get stronger, I also do a full body work out, so yeah, I am not really in a bodybuilding program (if i explain myself badly at times, its because of my english)
What I am not sure about is the reps and sets. I understand I will not get big any time soon if I don’t eat more (my diet is more towards are cut), so that’s the problem
The problem is now I know a bit more about working out and such, i would just hate to do the wrong things at the moment.
I want to get lean, not because of an Hollywood idea, but just because I like to fit in my jeans (my bodyfat now, by the way, is 15%), i also hate to drag the bodyfat around since I know how fast I was in the past
What I want to accomplish is: With my thai boxing and my work outs at the gym to get a faster and stronger body
At the moment I am trying to do sets and reps of 5x5 and I try to add 10/20 lbs every session i do
-what does that mean: “Because I have done fitness for such a long time i actually feel kinda slow, and I have to[o] much bodyfat” -Are you overweight? Do you think “fitness” (whatever that is) makes you automatically fatter and slower?
