Just started training!
I'm pretty new to lifting (hence posting in the beginner section!) but I've had a few tries on and off, and now I've found my motivation. Mainly because I'm a skinny lad and want to be a bit bulkier and proud of my body.
The only thing is, I've read a lot of posts on the net about how easy it is to be doing the wrong thing and totally hinder my progress without even knowing. So could you guys tell me if my plan at the moment is any good?
(Btw, I'm 18, 6.2" and 168 pounds, male. For the record)
I started swimming a couple months ago, and I'd like to keep this up, so I'd swim about 3 days a week and train the others.
I can't reeally access a gym due to finance and for the same reason getting hold of supplements like whey protein would be difficult. I have started eating plenty though, with lots of protein in my diet - lots of bananas, porridge, milk, meat, nuts, etc.
I do have a decent set of dumbells though (can have them up to 10kg each) and all the motivation in the world!
I planned to bulk up properly for summer, but I realise this may be a bit hasty - however I will get as far as I can by then, and then carry on further!
What do you guys reckon? Are there any training schedules that you know of that would pretty much fit my needs?
