Good afternoon all! New here and looking for information because I have never done any of this before. I am a man and nearly 37 years old. I am 6’3 and fluctuate between 215-220 pounds. I have been somewhere between scrawny to skinny my entire life. Always had trouble gaining muscle mass or adding weight to the bar.

First started going to the gym about 10 years and went from 155 pounds to about 185 pounds in about a years time. Probably had more to do with me eating more. After that I would always get discouraged due to lack of progress made towards getting stronger and bigger.

A little more background. I have tried the full body 3 days a week split and absolutely hated. I have also tried the Arnold split and loved it but after about 3 or 4 months recovery became a huge issue. Currently I am running a 5 day split: chest/triceps, back/biceps, shoulders. Legs, Bench press plus arms. I really enjoy this and look forward to going to the gym.

I had blood work done a few months ago but my test levels were considered normal but at the very low end of normal. Current profession will not allow me to get trt unless my levels are next to nothing. Thankfully I will be moving on to something else in a month or 2. For the time being I am looking for as much information and guidance as I can get.

I am sleeping around 8 hours a night. My diet consists of:
Protein shake before morning workout and 1 after.
6 scrambled eggs, 2 pieces of toast and a packet of protein oatmeal for breakfast.
I eat chicken, rice and veggies for lunch and a pre-dinner meal. For the last meal of the day I eat whatever we cook which is generally plenty healthy.

Looking forward to make substantial changes to my physique and stop being skinny. This has been a huge problem my entire life. Looking forward to all of the guidance I can receive here.

This morning was shoulder day. Workout as follows:

Hammer strength shoulder press (4x 12,10,8,2)
Dumbbell lateral raise 3x12
Barbell shoulder shrug 3x12
Machine shoulder fly 3x12
Cable rope face pull 4x15

I use the hammer strength machine for shoulder presses due to issues with left shoulder that make barbell and dumbbells difficult. Any thoughts on pyramid sets vs straight sets? I have experimented with both and not entirely sure what is best. I knew someone who always used to increase the weight when he hit 10 reps for a set and he was one of the stronger guys I have known.

After working out I ate 6 scrambled eggs, 2 pieces of toast, 1 packet of oatmeal and a protein shake for breakfast. Lunch was chicken, rice and veggies and about to eat lunch number 2 which is the same thing. Dinner a few hours later then bed.

Plan to keep posting on this log everyday and look forward to all the feedback. Will post a picture later.
 
Also have a question. I am not planning on doing a cycle for another 2 months or maybe more but am really just in the planning and research phase. I want to make sure I got my diet and workout ironed out before I do anything. I see in other places that test only is essentially always the recommendation and I see little mention of sarms. My question is for a first cycle what is generally recommended here? I see a lot of sarms talk so I am curious. I have also had a private chat with Dylan going. Thank you and just trying to amass as much knowledge as I can.

I will start posting meal pictures tomorrow. I meal prep Sunday nights for the week and it’s always chicken, rice and veggies. I do make breakfast every morning though.

diet isn't bad. but it can be improved a lot man
need more fruits and veggies here. i would also cut out the bread, there are much better options if you insist on bread but refind flour and bleached flour bread is a killer
 
keep us up to date bro. Keep the diet details and training as complete as poss so we can help
 
definitely increase the vegetables you're getting
you can get a rice cooker and steamed vegetables in it no problem
 
definitely get some meal pictures up
we all know that you can definitely better than what you're showing so far
 
Definitely looking forward to seeing some food pictures
I always get hungry when I see them LOL
 
you want to do a first cycle sarms or steroids?
maybe keep working on your diet and your training first though

Yeah I got some time before I do anything. Just want to get the workout and diet squared away in the meantime. Probably leaning more towards test plus deca or test plus dbol(including cycle support and pct) when I am ready. Want to keep it simple and might even just do test only.

Below is what I eat for first lunch and then second lunch daily. 1 cup rice, 1 cup veggies and some chicken. Right now I do the breakfast as mentioned before but will start cutting out the toast. And I also do dinner in the evening with my wife, last night had salmon, rice and veggies. Will work on getting some fruit in there as well.

Not sure why the picture looks like that. I tried uploading on another forum as well but it said the file was to big.

Will do! Quick question is my current split ok?

Chest/triceps
Back/biceps
Shoulders
Legs
Bench press plus arms

I have tried both full body and upper/lower and dreaded going to the gym but the above has been very enjoyable. Not opposed to switching to something like a PPL though. Definitely want to be in the gym 5-6 days a week.

I recently started barbell benching for the first time and it was a struggle at first but I got my form down now. I previously did dumbbell bench and most I ever did was 75 pounds each but my left shoulder always gave me issues and that was limiting but with the barbell that doesn’t seem to be the case.
