I used to go to the gym, 5 yrs ago with a schedule of 4-5x a week at Fitness First. Started with a 175lbs and a body fat of 29%. The free sessions of a personal trainer was focused on learning all of the machines and basic free weight lifting. Became addicted to using the treadmill, stationary bike, and rowing machine. For 6mos, I lost more than 40lbs and BF went down to 11%. A middle-aged dude suggested that I try bodybuilding. So I did with the help of http://www.muscleandfitness.com/ and https://www.bodybuilding.com/. Self taught (with some guidance of gym buddies and PTs) for 2.5yrs. Achieved my desired physique without protein drinks or muscle enhancers. Due to workload and job responsibilities, I had to stop. I miss the pain when lifting weights! Planning to go back by May. Nowadays, I do plyometrics, running, and several sports.
1. Properly schedule and plan your workout routines
2. Eat right, get enough Sleep, don't neglect Rest days (for muscle and body recovery)
3. Full Commitment in being Healthy (regardless of financial, emotional, and workload state)
Papi Artchua, suggest ka ng exercise routines: free weights and machine usage. Mukhang batak ka sa muscle strength and building.
