Hello to everyone in T-Nation ^^ My name is David and i’m 23 years old This October i’m going to start the journey that everyone talks about here And to start off, i’ve gotta be honest in 2 things, first… i’m a big noob when it comes to this (Ergo… Vis-a-vis… Concordantly… the post in this section), but like everything in life, we learn with experience.
Second and unfortunantly very important, i’m not a very big fan of reading (yeah i know you’re thinking “you’re in the wrong place buddy”), so i freak a little bit when i see a 5 page article, that’s because i like the information useful, short and precise, if there is an alternative way to be successful in my training avoiding the big reading like video articles i would appreciate, if not i’m commited to make an effort :D.
Other than that, i’m excited with this because not only will i look good (hope so), but also will be healthier, which is a very important thing because we only have one body, and we should take good care of it. But i gotta admit that the body building universe is scary as hell, there are so many variables(genetic, social, monetary), definitions (body anatomy, functionality, nutrition) and training exercices that a guy doesn’t even know how to start !
So i hope with your help the journey will be as smooth as if it was with the Cole Train So… without further ado i will explain my current situation:
Because i’m still in college and not financially independent i can’t afford Ã¼ber gyms so i’m in a very small gym that may have the bare essencials and i maybe able to buy 1 pack of supplements or shakes if you guys think it’s really important and that the progress speed up is worth the money.
In terms of food habbits i think i will have a easier time because i love healthy food, fruit, shakes, salads, chicken, turkey and so on, although i don’t eat them often, mostly because i don’t have a nutrition plan to guide me (e.g friday’s eat salad with chicken with a shake), i’m a methodic guy what can i say I’m a 6 feet mostly skinny guy (except the abdominal area) and weight about 154 with aprox. 23 % of body fat.
Knowing my situation (mostly limited because of the money) and even though, like i mentioned before, there are many variables here(mostly genetic that makes what i’m asking difficult to answer) but what can you recommend (if possible) for exercise, nutrition and supplement plan to maximize my progress? I’ve attached a picture of the closest thing i’ve found to describe my goal.
