Looking for some solid advice on what routine I should start with. I’m just getting back in the gym after 3-4yrs off. I’m 6’1" and ~158lbs, 26yrs old. My goals are to gain at least 10lbs of lean muscle. One problem…I’m in veterinary school so much of my time during the day is spent sitting in lecture. That, in combination w/ poor eating has led to a somewhat chunky midsection that I’d like to be gone. So basically, I’m on my way to being a fat, skinny guy (or a skinny fat guy). So overall my goal is to gain strength/size, lose the fat, and get the overall “V” shape.
I’ve just read up on Rippetoe program and read some positive feedback on that. I’d really like to have a program where I can frequently increase the weight being lifted so that I’m constantly getting motivation by seeing that I’m getting stronger. I’m able to hit the gym 3-4x/wk, with 45min-1hr about the max I can spend each visit.
I’m about to start adding in Protein shakes to my diet, which is being re-vamped to eat healthier. I’ll take all the GOOD advice you can throw my way (diet or training rec’s)! Thanks!!!
