Hello All I've been reading these forums for a while and finally joined. I have just recently starting lifting and need some advice.
I'm 25 years old, 5'7" and 195 lbs.
I want to start the wbb#1 workout, but I have a question about my diet. I've been reading that If i want to gain muscle mass I have to eat around 5k calories a day. Currently I'm eating anywhere from 2500-4000 depending on the day. If i up my caloric intake to 5000k and continue to lift hard for several months, will my stored fat be burned away due to me gaining more muscle mass, or will I just get fatter? Should i consume less calories and still lift hard?
My goal is to get into shape but I don't want to start a cut now since I don't have enough muscle to really show.
So I guess my long winded questions are this:
1. Is the wbb#1 workout a good place for me to start?
2. How many calories should I be eating
3. I don't have a spotter, will using the bars with the safteylocks hurt my development?
