need advice


Recommended Posts

You're probably not too flabby if you're only 155 lbs ...unless as OU812 says, you're very short.

If you're more on the ectomorphic side, you want to concentrate on gaining muscle mass.

In which case I have two suggestions to achieve that goal:

1) weight train 4-5 times a week....since you're starting out you'll begin to see a big spike in strength and size. Make sure you get a total body workout: chest, shoulders, back, biceps, triceps, legs, calves. Refer to exercise manuals or consult fitness trainers for help here if you don't know what exercises to perform for all of these. There is a number of exercises for each body part, so experiment and pick the ones you feel more comfortable with. Make sure you allow 4-5 days of rest per body part. In other words, DON'T train every body part 4-5 times per week. If something feels the least bit sore....don't train it.....let that be a rule of thumb. There's no magic number of sets or specific exercises when you're first starting out. You will learn with experience....initially just find something you enjoy that will keep you motivated to persevere

2) Make sure your diet is clean.

High in protein ...get 200-250 grams per day with your current weight (supplements might help here)

Watch your carbs....eat veggies, fruits, legumes, whole wheat breads and pasta, whole foods, things high in fiber....be wary of sugars (read the nutritional info).

Drink water.....no sodas, carbonated beverages, fruit juices

Avoid saturated fats and trans fats but welcome unsaturated fats

Take a multi-vitamin

Note -- 20-30 minutes on a treadmill a few times a week will do you good, but don't overdo it since you're probably naturally lean to begin with.

That's fitness 101

Good luck
