Hi fellow T-Nationers,
I am a long time reader but first time poster, in need of some serious advice. I have the unfortunate body composition - skinny-fat, at 5ft 8 and 150lbs. I am really in need of some advice from people with experience and knowledge because at the moment I have no direction in my training and was even considering trying a low carb diet to lose fat, before reading the skinny fat manifesto.
My body naturally stores fat around the chest and abs yet I dont seem to build much muscle either which leaves me confused about how I should be training or eating.
I'm not a total novice but nor am I strong - I can Deadlift 300lbs, Squat 185lbs and Bench Press 150lbs. Any help would be greatly appreciated because I feel like I am running in two directions at the same time and getting nowhere.
Current Workout (Started last week)
Monday - Squat 6x3, Clean and Press 3x5, Weighted Pull Ups 3x5-8, Close Grip Push Ups 3x10-15, Thai Ab Workout
Wednesday - Bench Press 4x3-5, Clean Pulls 3x5, Power Snatch 3x5,
Friday - Front Squat 6x3, Clean and Press 3x5, Weighted Chin Ups 3x5-8, Dips 3x8-15, Thai Ab Workout
My proposed diet was to not worry too much about what to eat through the day but to only eat vegetables as my carb with dinner.
As I mentioned any advice would be greatly appreciated, I have no direction at the moment and the wealth of conflicting opinions from unqualified people on the internet is confusing me.
