hi guys, thanks in advance for any help you give me
im male, 18 years old, about 58kg, 5 foot 9, and very skinny. im looking to start a weight lifting program and looked at starting strength. since im new to weight training and would be learning all these exercises myself, i didnt like the idea of doing power cleans, as they seem to have a rather complicated technique (relative to squats/bench presses at least). so i was thinking of a version without the power cleans:
does this look like something that could work? and i'm assuming i'd add some crunches for abs workMonday
3x5 Bench press / Press (Alternating)
Chin-ups: 3 sets to failure or add weight if completing more than 15 reps
3x5 Press / Bench Press (Alternating)
3x5 Bench Press / Press (Alternating)
Pull-ups: 3 sets to failure or add weight if completing more than 15 reps
my second question was about diet - im sorry if this should be posted separately in the diet forum, i thought it'd be neater to just have it all in one general topic.
i've just started university a month or so ago, and its self-catered, so my diet's been sort of haphazard - i'd have to sort it out with weight lifting. basically, was just wondering what you think some easy to prepare foods are for a good diet. i'm severely allergic to eggs and nuts, so that's some easy protein out the window. i've read about oatmeal being good, and i also read that one idea is to drink a gallon of milk a day. a whole gallon? what the ?
anyways, just trying to make sure im on the right track thanks for any help!
