Hello, I am a 45 year old man and up to two months ago I was leading a sedentary life. Then I joined a gym and at first I started with some cardio exercises. After a while I started training with weights and I got hooked. I started changing my life bit by bit. I started eating healthier foods, I increased the number of meals to 5, I STOPPED SMOKING, instead of soft drinks I drink water or green tea. I even bought some protein powder and vitamins! I dreamt of having a nice muscular body to boost my self-condifence which is underground at the moment. All was going well until yesterday. Yesterday I was reading an article on this site written by Ivan Blazquez that puzzled me alot. These are some quotes:
?When do muscles grow? Typically in early years of life (~11-20 years of age)?
?Muscle growth or accretion in adult years is very, very hard to accomplish. In fact, to gain 1-lb of pure muscle in a year as an adult without body fat gain would be astonishing.?
My question is this, can I have a muscular body? I don't want to become a bodybuilder but I would definitely want to pack on some muscle.
Am I wasting my time and money?
