My New Year’s Resolution is to be fit in 2017. So I will be posting my journey along with my diet schedule and my daily activities from today. In my first post in health and fitness, I covered most basics tips on losing weight but as i am already below weight according to my height, my goal is to gain weight.
Gaining weight doesn’t mean you have to eat everything you get, I will be gaining weight with eating a small calorie surplus with weight training exercises and some cardio to improve my cardiovascular health as well. This Journey will include all of those tips in an improvised manner to motivate everyone to be fit as well. If you want to be a part of my journey whether you are planning to lose or gain weight/muscle, you are most welcome. Hope to learn and help others.
If you are new to muscle building, this post might be confusing for you. So I will try to cover everything to get started.
TO GET STARTED, 5 MOST IMPORTANT TIPS ACCORDING TO ME
1. SET A GOAL ( whether you want to gain or lose weight/muscle )
2. Stick to it and be patient enough. ( Good things take time )
3. Setup your diet according to your goal and schedule.
4. Start with a good training regime and not some fitness exercises you read in a magazine.
5. Have a good trainer or somebody who is educated enough about fitness exercises and diet to help you achieve your goal.
I will be covering all of the above tips in my upcoming posts.
MY GOAL : Gain Muscle
So I will be doing a bulking phase, then probably cut.
Current Weight : 48 Kgs ( 105 Lbs )
Goal Weight: Gaining 0.5 pound a week ( trying to be patient enough ) until i feel satisfied for cut
Training Schedule :
Weight Training 3 days a week ( Mostly compound lifts ).
Cardio in the morning on off days/post workout.
Diet is one of the most important factor whether you want to gain or lose weight/muscle. No matter how much you train or workout, the end result will depend upon your diet. I have setup my diet below according to my goal:
Eating around 2000 Calories every day for first two-three weeks to see if i gain/lose, then will adjust my calories accordingly.
Macros : 90 Grams of protein, 50 g of fat, 300 g of carbs.
