Im a new member here but this looks like a very good site.
I am here to get some help and advice to help me achieve my fitness goal.
Right now, I am 16, 6’0, and only 147 lbs.
My goal is to at least reach 190 pounds, but I will continue to grow, so this number will grow also.
I understand some basics about what I need to do, but I do not know alot in this area.
So basically what I need is advice on meals and eating plans, such as how many meals a day, how much protein a day, types of shakes or bars to buy, types of food to eat etc etc
Then I will also need a good routine to maximize the efficiency of my equipment so I can gain the muscle I want. Below are pictures of my equipment at home. For right now, this is all I can use, so please if youre developing a workout routine, set it to this machine.
On the picture above, on that pole, there’s supposed to be a flat plate for your legs. I have it, just need to get the screw to put it in.
Any advice is GREATLY appreciated, as I would like to start making progress towards my goal now. Just on a side not, I’ve always been very skinny and my dad was the same way, but he is now 235lbs. The last couple months or so I have been working out once a week maybe, having a protein shake about the same, and trying to eat a bit more. I have gained about 8 pounds so it looks like I may be starting to gain weight naturally? I hope so. Just thought I would throw that in if it helps at all.
Thanks alot in advance,
