Hey, everyone. I’m new here and I was just kind of wondering where I should get started in my current situation. I don’t have a lot of knowledge of weightlifting or anything like that, but it is something that I want to get serious about. So here’s where I’m at. I’m currently deployed to Iraq and don’t have a whole lot of choices of weights or food, which I know are both important. For the food, I really don’t have much besides bread, hot pockets, and cookies (haha).
As for the weights, we do have a gym, but it is seriously lacking. We have dumbells, one cable machine, and a couple of benches. I’ve been going now for about a month and have seen mediocre results, probably do to the fact that I don’t know fully of what I’m doing. I’ve really only been working my arms, chest, and abs. I know this isn’t the right way to go, but like I said, I’m new and don’t know a lot of exercises.
I would just like to see what some of you think I could do, until I get back to a good gym and good food. I want to get bigger, but not huge. Right now, I’m 6’1 and about 170ish lb. Any suggestions, tips, advice, etc. is appreciated. Thanks, all!
