2 years ago, I started working out.Decided to do Starting Strength at 140 pounds a years later. I did starting strength on and off for the next year while drinking half a gallon of milk a day.
Age-16 (17 by end of summer)
Squat- 255 X 5
Bench- 170 X 5
Deadlift- 355 X 5
I did no assistance work and no ab work. My work out basically consisted of Bench, Squats, Deadlifts, OHP, and pull ups.
All my lifts have stalled except Deadlift which I still add 5 pounds weekly.
I am confused on what to do from here. My main goal right now is to actually look like I work out. I have seen friends workout for a month and look much bigger then me.
In one month’s time, I will have to fast daily from sunrise until 10:00 pm for a month. I have read on some sites that losing weight is much easier then gaining muscle, and since I have to fast in one month, I thought it would make sense to cut. But I think I am not really big enough to cut yet… being 170 pounds and all.
My question is basically this, what should I do from here? Getting stronger would be nice, but my main goal now is to actually look strong. Should I try to bulk for the summer and try stuffing 3000 cal after 10:00 pm? or should I just cut?
