Very new to working out, and trying to build mass, strength and tote a good six pack.
I am 6' - 182 lbs. with probably 15-20%BF in my mid 30's
I have trimmed about 10-15 bs. of fat off in the last few months, think I might have lost some muscle along the way too.
Still have a little gut and love handles.
I now belong to a gym, have been doing some cardio. work and looking to get into the weights.
I tried the bench press, first time in many years....almost embarrising I am weak.. somewhere around 150 lbs.
As you can tell I have got to kick it up a notch or three.
I don't have a good routine and or diet. I am trying to read as much as I can on diet. Know I need the protein.
Has anyone been where I am at? or have any suggestions as to building muscle. Do I need to use supplements? (Protein powders-what kind, creatine???)
Thanks & sorry for the lenghty post
