Hey all,

im currently a grad student at the university and have a grad student personal trainer who is sorta getting me on the basics so far. Id like to try and get somewhat big soon then later as i know 30 is when it gets a bit harder so id rather try to use my time as productively as possible. I have been researching a lot on online but sometimes there is so much information its overwhelming. Is there anything i should ask my trainer for or some ideas as to how to use this time most effectively. I dont expect to ever be like arnold or even get to that big, big porn star big or go go dancer big might be nice.

thanks all
R

Testosterone 300-400mgs E5D is perfect first cycle. Keep it simple and sweet. Train heavy and hard but with strict form. Clean diet, bit 30min cardio 5 days a week and you'll be on your way.

Depends on goals but in general 4-5 days per week, 45 minutes per session or less with weights. Intense but controlled. Don't worry about methods and details. Stimulate the muscle and then feed it good food. Very simple if done properly.
jack tors, rado and piratex like this.

Welcome to SM. I personally wouldn't touch the AAS right away. Take time to lift and to use your natural hormones to put on size.

Have a top notch diet high in protein, carbs, but low in fat. Train hard, focus on squeezing the muscle, and have good form

What is your current fitness level and stats (height weight, rough physical shape - thin vs. overweight, etc)? Knowing that will help us give you advice.

5'9 155 generally slim with some small love handles and a small front belly. I do have big thighs mixture of fat and muscle i think. I think of fitness level i think im ok ive been doing the original power 90 for 3 week now and i can keep up for the most part. I have managed to get to barely 40 push ups lately. I havent ever really lifted more then 10 lbs in curls or anything. Ive just tried to up the resistance bands to 15lbs. So im not really that strong but im ok condition i think

Cereal? Yea that's not gonna cut it unless you want the body of a little boy. Men who look like they lift don't eat cereal for dinner bro. No offense.

Up your cals, double or triple your protein. Chicken, eggs, lean beef. Carbs like oats, rice, fruit. Healthy fats like avacado, PB... That plus cardio will have you putting on muscle and burning fat especially since your body will be in such a shock state from the new way of eating and training. Don't make the mistake of not doing cardio just cause your lean. Low intensity cardio 5 days a week will help in every single way. 20-30 minutes on treadmill fast walking pace, slight incline. If you start to look too skinny it's because your not eating enough.

but you still have love handles and a belly. something your doing isn't working brother. if you want to look above average you have to train, diet, and work harder then the average person.

As I said, training hard and heavy with weight you can control. Eat 4-5 meals per day with 30-40 grams protein per meal. Bit of cardio after training. That's it. Don't make things complicated and get caught up with which training style or type of diet etc..

i feel like you don't actually want the answers. you just keep saying "what do I do" like a kid that doesn't want to do his homework and keeps saying "i dont know how". you said yourself you had a personal trainer teaching you the basics. do that! the basics are good. you seem to be looking for some special secret, some special diet plan. hard work, hard training, eating clean, cardio and consistency. thats what does it. i talk about cardio and you tell me you walk to school. come on bro. get that eye of the tiger attitude and go kill it in the gym. enough of this "but but but" shit. go do it.

I was trying to say that in a polite way... little lazy or clueless which is common on other boards, its fine were here to help but you got to do your part too.
