So i have been training close to 4 years. I have spun my wheels this whole time. I have done cut and bulk cycles and I just seem to have gotten nowhere. Im 22 years old 5'9 176-177. My goal was to cut down like 30-40 pounds. I have such little muscle mass on me and the only way I'm gonna look lean is if I lose a good chunk of weight.
However I can't convince myself to do it. I ate in a deficit this whole week and today I just had like 5000 calories, which basically puts me at maintenance. I'm probably gonna stop tracking calories for a while and just focus on lifting as hard as I can and getting stronger. Eat quality foods when I'm hungry and just hope for the best. Tracking calories for this long has kicked my ass mentally. It led me to binge eat for a while.
Here are my best lifts
Barbell row 225x6
I don't squat or deadlift because I tore my meniscus. So there is pain when I perform those movements. I do a push pull leg routine. One heavy day (3-4 reps) and one light day (8-12). If anyone has any advice or suggestions pls comment. I was hoping some experienced lifters or people who have been in similar situations give me some good advice. I really want to look good and have a good body otherwise I wouldn't have made this thread and to seek advice. Thanks
