Hey guys, nice forum
I'm in need of some help here.
Basically, I was a toothpick years back.
My main goal is to bulk up and gain some muscle mass.
Currently, I look like crap so I need some help and suggestions.
I'm about 5-11" 195lbs.
Unfortunately, a lot of the weight went to my stomach. I used to eat a lot of junk yrs back but I have been eating quite good recently.
This is pretty much how I look. I'm still small but I have a stomach now:
arms - 14" relaxed
stomach (over belly button) - 40"
chest - 41"
thighs - 22"
This is an example of one of my days:
5:45AM - Whey Protein shake (2 scoops) with banana, 1 fruit, water.
6-7AM - Gym (5 mins cardio)
7:05 - Protein shake (1 scoop) wth water.
7:30 - 3 eggs, white bread toast with margarine, glass of milk.
9:30AM - Munch on cashews
11:00 - Tuna sandwich (1 can) on whole wheat bread with mayo and lettuce
1:30 - 2-3 slices of chicken, 2 fruits, nestea
4:30 - peanut butter (natural) with jelly on white bread
7:00 - pasta, 2-3 slices of chicken, lettuce, icetea.
8-9 - I will munch on something light, cereal sometimes.
approx 3 litres of water per day.
Is this enough to bulk up muscle mass? Any suggestions for my diet. Should I be eating more during the night (8-9pm)?
Now the second part of my post.
I want to bulk up but I kind of want to shed some fat off my stomach at the same time b/c I look like crap.
Currently, I work out 3-4 days per week. I don't do any cardio. I don't have the time to do it in the morning b/c I only have an hour to workout. My work does not consist of me doing physical work, not much anyway.
Do you think if I hit the gym an extra day per week and run on the treadmill for 1 hour, will this help me lose some fat on my stomach? At the same time though, I don't want to shrink other parts of my body b/c I want to increase my size elswhere.
Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.
