Ok, I had a whole big post written up and when I went to post it I was somhow logged out and lost it all.
So now I'm going to post a simpler version.
I'm 27 6'1 and 155lb's. I'm skinny. I worked out in highschool with a monster friend of mine, he had me work out till failure every set every day. I ate everything I could, but never saw a difference, and I felt like hell most of the time.
Now that I'm older I want to start getting back in shape, I'm not looking to get that big really, just bigger and cut.
Think more lightweight boxer less pro wrestler.
If I had to give a model, maybe pitt in fight club or Edward Norton in american history x. If that helps you get an idea of what I'm looking for, cool, if it makes you think I'm gay, my bad.
So I'm thinking WBB workout 1 looks good, its surprising seeing only 2 sets, I never thought that would be enough, but it was written by a guy that knows a lot more than me, so 2 sets it is.
Should I run every morning, I know I need to gain weight, but I have a little fat in the gut area (like inch or less). Will that work off as I lift?
What kind of diet should I stick to, a "gainers" diet?
Should I do it in steps, like first I gain what I need, then cut it up? Or will the diet allow me to gain muscle and no fat?
Squats, can I use the smith machine? Always been a little unsure of myself on those.
Is there any reason I couldn't swap barbell curls for preacher curls, I always enjoyed those (maybe because I could do more maybe?)
Creatine, will it help me reach my goals?
Thanks for any help you might be able to give, please feel free to ask any questions that would help you to help me.
