I am a 19 yr old med student at a UK university, 135lbs, low BF% (will pick up calipers tomorrow) and 5ft 8
I hope to gain around 30lbs so I look less weedy in general.
Approx measurements (with help from girlfriend)
Upper arm (straight) 11.5"
I spent some time in the gym over Summer but didnt really know what I was doing, in terms of both exercise and diet.
I thought I was eating loads but since I started tracking on fitday I realised I wasnt eating nearly enough.
For the last week I have managed between 3500 and 4000 cal per day and I actually feel a little bigger already.
I can keep this diet up when I start the gym tomorrow.
I intend to start with WBB1. The gym is state of the art and has all the equipment to do every exercise in the routine.
I have never done a squat or deadlift before in my life but I have to go for an "induction" in the gym first, so I guess someone will show me how to do them properly.
I have studied this site and the exercise directory for everything else.
I have printed off a chart for all of the exercises, reps and sets etc and tomorrow I plan to go on everything in the gym tomorrow and find out what weight my 6-8 rep max is.
Any other tips or suggestions?
