Hey guys i have been lifting for 2.5 years. Basically spinning my wheels I guess. Im 5’9 167 21 yrs old. In those 2.5 yrs I spent a lot of time doing bro splits, not focusing on strenght, high volume training, which got me nowhere. Right now im eating 27500-2800 cals. My goal is to get up to 180, and cut back down to 160.
Basically try and slowly gain muscle in the next 12 months. I had been previously cutting the last 12 weeks. Im going to switch my programming to a 5 day push pull leg routine lifting heavy. Is this a good plan? Im still a bit unsure and I want to make some progress. The last few days I have lowered training volume and eating more I feel a lot better. For the last 1-2 years I would train 5-6 days in a row and it took a toll on me. I was fatigued and tired and weak. I managed to get a bit stronger. My best lifts were a 225x5 squat, 185x5 bench, 315x1 deadlift. Still not good numbers for the amount of time spent training.
Pls offer any advice/suggestions. My diet is composed of mainly whole foods. My macros atm are: 200 protein, 350 carbs, 60 fat
