I’m 40 years old at 6’1”, 186 lbs, and over 40” waist. I always beer myself as skinny fat from too much beer, bar foods, restaurants and late night eating. Mostly, happened during my 20s.
I have no upper nor lower body strength.
My fitness goal is not to be a strong man competition. I rather lift weights and look good being on the beach with my shirt off.
Example Abercrombie and Fitch models, Zac Efron , and Chris Pratt.
Will bodybuilding/ muscle building the way to go?
Currently, I’m running Gray Skull for about Off and on 20 weeks. I may missed weeks because injury getting use to lifting. Some weeks were missed because of the past holidays.
I’m lifting the 5 main compound lifts; overhead press, bench press, bent over barbell rows, Squats, and deadlifts.
I also added push ups, tricep dips, barbell curls and lat pull downs with underhand grips.
I exercise 3 days a week. M,W,F
Light cardio 2 days a week. Tues, Thu
The only thing I have a problem with this routine I use resistance bands attach to barbell, and a door, so I can get as close to the free weight moves. I’m able to add weights over 300 lbs.
One thing I like Gray Skull because of their app. Easy to keep track and know which weights I need to use.
When will I know I stall out or switch out programs? I still fill I can make more gains.
I’ve been thinking about doing nSuns 531 afterwards. I really like the AMRAP.
Any suggestions is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time,
