I'm Vittorio from Italy. I'm a student, a computer programmer and a bodybuilding noob.
I started following Scooby's Workshop's advice, and ended up eating 1800 calories at 45 kg / 164 cm. I realized I was underweight and asked for advice here, and I was told to bulk.
You can see a photo of my body in my profile.
Weight: around 46 kg
Height: 164 cm
Started bulking 2 days ago, with 2100 daily calories as a goal.
I don't have specific macros, but I'm getting 1g - 1.5g grams of protein per pound and trying to get some healthy fats in my diet.
My workout program is pretty stupid (I think, at least). My gym trainer makes me do this:
Monday -> barbell bicep curls - 5 sets - 12 reps - only the barbell, no added weights
-> barbell bench press - 5 sets - 12 reps - barbell + 10kg
-> abs crunches - 4 sets - 15 reps - no added weights (I can't even feel these)
Wednesday -> triceps pushdown - 4 sets - 12 reps - 20kg
-> machine chest flies - 5 sets - 12 reps - 25kg
-> abs crunches - 4 sets - 15 reps - no added weights
-> pull ups - 3 sets - 7~8 reps - no added weights (can't do good form)
Saturday (workout at home) -> push ups - 4 sets - 14 reps - no added weights
-> dumbbell bicep curls - 4 sets - 12 reps - 5kg per dumbbell
-> dumbbell chest flies - 4 sets - 12 reps - 5kg per dumbbell
-> chair dips - 3 sets - 12 reps - no added weights
-> shoulder dumbbell press - 3 sets - 12 reps - 5kg per dumbbell
Here's how my nutrition has been these days:
1 May: 339 carb, 189 pro, 17 fat
2 May: 332 carb, 215 pro, 72 fat (I ate over my goal)
3 May: 257 carb, 143 pro, 47 fat
4 May: 328 carb, 140 pro, 41 fat
5 May: 294 carb, 173 pro, 32 fat
So... how can I make my workout better?
Am I eating too less / too many calories?
Thanks for reading. Will try to keep the log updated.
