Toning Up/Bulking up with little resources
I am 17 (18 in july) COLLEGE SOPHOMORE (irregular food patterns to say the least) and still pubescent; i say this because i dont want to mess up my metabolic rate, growth and developement by dieting like men who are post-pubescent, and can handle it. Protein and drinking water is the closest i come to dieting
I have a slim muscular build, 5'10 or 5'11 about 175lbs (to put in perspective, i . I can [max] bench about 240 1x, and i regularly bench about 200 - 205 lbs. I curl about 45 - 50 lbs with and leg press about 350 lbs...
ok so with all that said, i would like to get leaner, tone up my abdomen (6 pac not necessary, just tone), and bulk up my upper body (just a little). I want to do this before i go back to school in august, and i know it can be done since im not trying to gain a lot more bulk. However, all i have is a total gym and myself. I was thinking of doing pushups to gain a little bulk, as most of my muscular tone came from me doing pushups in my earlier years. Anyway, i have been reading threads about how push-ups may only be good for beginners, or those who cant lift their own body weight... so with my background, and my resources, is there any hope of me getting a little bigger/toning up? Are pushups OK to continue for building?
