Ok everyone, let me start off by saying yes…I know I’m a shrimp compared to most T Nationers, however I respect the community and was looking for some advice/direction so here we go.
First some things that I’m aware of:
- Yes, my calves are THAT small (not an excuse but chicken legs run in the family hah)
- Yes, there is favorable lighting
- Yes, I expect a shitty score… I got a long way to go and a lot of muscle to gain…humor me
- No, this isn’t my room lol
Extremely brief history: Extremely skinny fat track athlete in high school (160lbs). Went to college. Realized “damn I need muscles”. Found T Nation and began a extremely healthy bulk(seriously no junk, I’m too paranoid) but with no real idea how to adjust diet and calories combined with the fact that I only weighed myself when I came home from school(every 3months) and I ended up at 204lbs. Realized I need to cut fat so went down to 182ish lbs. Got stuck in the dreaded “should I cut or should I bulk?” limbo for about 6months. Had bad case of a ruptured appendix (Lets just say I went to the hospital at 8pm and the doctors said that if I had gone to sleep I would have died). Started back lifting as soon as I could. Currently trying to get lean as possible (yes I’m a little skinny but the bodyfat judging by the ab visibility is still pretty high) before I start a long healthy sustained bulk, which I am alot more equip to do now that I have more knowledge on the subject and a scale!
Current Stats: sorry Lift stats, I honestly don’t know due to the off time from surgery
HT 6’ 0’’
Wt. 170lbs (all weights were in the morning before food)
What I’m looking for:
-Strengths( if any)
-Advice on where I should go from here.
-Preferably base your advice on the basis that I am a John Romaniello believer, meaning that I’m just an average guy who wants to look aesthetically pleasing with good size/strength
I really appreciate it T Nation!
Sorry if I forgot anything
