    Looking for guidance - bulk or cut

    Sorry I don’t have pictures.
  2. Hi All, I am looking for guidance on calories/ bulk/ cutting. For a quick introduction, I am 27 and 74.5kg/ 164lbs. These are my current stats: chest: 39.5 inches leg: 22.5 inches arms: 13.8 inches waist: 34 inches (really high) fat mass: 27 lbs Body fat %: 16. I lift weights about 3 times/ week and do about 30 minutes of cardio/ week. I generally workout on Sat, Sun and Tues (night) due to my work schedule. My goal right now is to be 80kg/ 176lbs with a bf% of 14%. My confusion is: A. Should I bulk or cut? - Most people tell me I should bulk as I do not have much muscle mass, however, I worry my belly will be bigger. At the same time, most website say if your bf% is 16% you should cut to 12-13%. B. How much calories do I need to take to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time? Or If you feel that I should bulk up, how much more calories should I eat and vice versa. Based on TTDE calculator.net, my maintenance calorie is 2058 calories per day. Let me know if you require further information. I appreciate all comments/ guidance on my queries above. Thank you in advance!

    Advise on my workout plan

    Hi guys, I would like to your advise on my workout routine. My goal right now is to get stronger and focus on developing my upper body. This is my workout plan and would like your thoughts on it. Also, I work long hours on weekday, hence I do not have much time to workout much on weekdays. Sat: Barbell Bench Press 3 x 5 Chest plate hammer strength press 3 x 10 Back row 3 x 5 Lat Pull Down 3 x 5 DB shoulder press 3 x 8 Barbell curl 2 x 10 DB overhead tricep extension 2 x 10 Sun: Deadlift 3 x 5 Leg press 3 x 12 Leg curl 3 x 10 Barbell squats 3 x 12 or Leg extension 3 x 12 Either Tues/Wed/Thurs Bench press/ Hammer strength 3 x 8-12 Cable fly 3 x 8-12 Back row 3 x 8-12 Pull up 3 x amap Lateral raise 3 x 8-12 DB curls 3 x 8-12 Tricep pushdown 3 x 8-12 My limitations include: 1. Not much time to workout on weekdays. For the past few weeks, I have been working from 9am to 10pm on most days. 2. I would like to increase my strength levels on bench press, deadlift and squats. However, I read that generally you should do squats first then deadlift on the same day. But given that I would like to focus on my upperbody, I have placed squats at the end of the workout (tho it will end up to be low weight. I would appreciate your guidance on this! I am quite skinny and would like to get strong. Thank you!

    Confused on training.

    Hi, I am confused on what type of work out I should do right now. I am about 5"7 165lbs 16%bf. My stats are: Chest: 39.5 Arm: 13.8 Quad: 22.5 Waist: 35 I want to have a smaller waist while I feel that my upper body especially my arms are lacking in size. My 1rpm for bench press is about 160lbs while for my squat is 185. I read some article that before focusing on a certain bodypart, we should get our 1rpm bench (1.2 times our bodyweight and for squat (1.6 times our bodyweight). I am unsure on what workout I should now. Should I do a focus on arms or lose more of my bodyfat or 5x5 kind of workout to bring up my strength? I am usually busy with work but I have some free time now for few weeks. I would really like to hit the 180lbs mark by christmas. (do you guys think that is possible?) Any advise on what to do/ sample workout routine is appreciated. Thanks Confused Lifter

    Do you have a specific workout for me to follow? running out of ideas. based on my current schedule, would a push/pull/leg split work? how many exercises and sets/ reps should i do?

    Advise On Training

    Hi, I am a casual gym goer who has been hitting the gym on/ off for a few years. My current stat is 5"8 160lbs. Can you guys advise me on what kind of workout I should do? I currently only workout on sat, sun and tues. My bodyfat % is 16%. Is it true that I should get it down to 12% before i start to bulk? I used to have a 36inch waist so right now i am trying to get a smaller waist. its currently at about 33inches. Trying to get a 31inch waist. I want to get bigger and stronger too. My arms are stuck at 14 inches and my chest is 39in. I have stopped working out legs as it is 22inch which is in proportion according to those bodybuilding charts, hence I am now aiming to develop my upper body. I also find it difficult to get stronger. my dumbbell curls are always stuck at 25lbs. how do I get stronger ? this is my current basic routine: sat: chest, tri, bi hiit sun: back, shoulders, hiit tues: chest, tri, bi, hiit thurs: slow cardio for 20-25 min I read somewhere that we should target the muscle group twice a week if we want to get stronger in those lifts. Hence, I think I should be aiming to bring up my bench press as it is a compound movement. My Benchpress i usually do about 60kg/132lbs for 10 reps so the 1 RPM is about 170lbs.
