Some of you may remember me as DaChickenShowYo, and some of you may remember that I have a major back injury that prevents me from doing exercise that puts alot of stress on my spinal erectors.
I have been very depressed about this, but I've continued to train in some form or another.
At the beginning of summer I would estimate that I was about 185lbs and at about 18% bodyfat. I decided to get cut and tan so I could proudly take my shirt off, and thanks to xenadrine, circuit training and swimming I've lost 20lbs. That was way more than I intended, and it kinda scared me, but my lifts have stayed the same and I've seen massive losses of fat, but not much noticable muscle loss. I'm at about 166lbs right now and almost have ripped abs.
Here's my predicament: In the next two years or so, I want to get up to about 200+lbs ripped. I'm 16 right now, and about 5'10 and I don't think that that is an impossible goal, but a major setback of course is the fact that I can't squat or deadlift, two great mass-gaining exercises. I still fully intend to try to reach my goal without posterior chain exercises.
So I'd like you ask you if you think its possible for me to reach my goal without squatting or deadlifting, and I'd like to ask for any advice any of you would have as far as a routine or diet goes.
Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you!
