Hey guys so long story short, I've been lifting on and off for years and pretty much nothing is working for me. I'm 6' tall, currently weigh 165 lbs. and have 30% body fat. I used to weigh 130lbs, then lost my job, got depressed, started trying to bulk up and basically messed it up big time....Luckily, I finally found a great position that I start on Monday and can start getting it together again. So anyways, I'm not happy with the way I look at all and am not sure whether to cut, bulk or do a combo of the 2 first. My goal for this year is to be pretty happy with my body by the summer though I know I'm not going to look like superman or anything yet. I want to do this naturally so here is a list of my training and supplements. I'm still working on the diet because I heard skinny fat guys should eat fats instead of low glycemic carbs so I'm a little confused especially since I don't know whether to bulk or cut first.
Current Supplements: (Let me know if I missed anything...For the record, I don't do well with stimulants which is ironic because I have ADHD. lol)
Up Your Mass Weight Gainer
Omega 3 CLA
Training was originally a 6 day split of 1-2 body parts per day, but I'm going to cut it down to 4 days a week in order to decrease cortisol production since I researched that skinny fat guys produce too much by training too often. Each session no more than about 1 hour. I am trying to do mostly compound exercises while still hitting each part of or close to each part of each muscle.
Monday: Chest, Back and Shoulders
Tuesday: Leegs, Tris, Bis
Straight Leg Dead Lifts
Incline supinated dumbell curls
Close Grip Bench
Thurs: Chest, Back, Shoulders
Flat Chest Press
Front shoulder press
Fri: Legs, Tris, Bis
Front Squats (May switch all squats to front and rear box squats as well)
Dead Lift and shrug at top
incline supinated curls
close grip bench
Please note that I do 3 sets of 12, 10, 8 reps each and that I work out at home with a smith machine and free weights. This is also not the order in which I train them all.
Let me know what you all think. Thanks guys!!!
