I hope I can ask this correctly. I’d like to put on some muscle mass and increase both size and strength. I’m not looking to be the next Shawn Baker, nothing like that. But I’ve done a lot of the diet stuff and wanna take the next step.
I’m already quite active physically. I have a small farm operation and am often working quite hard, tilling, digging, sweating, seriously. But it’s not targeted towards either strength or size of muscle on my frame, it’s targeted towards getting my work done. LOL!
I’m pushin’ 60, good weight (I’d say on the high side of normal), no meds, eating good fats and proteins, not quite carnivore but sometimes very close to it. I have a simple weight bench and some free weights. That’s it for equipment.
I guess what I’m looking for is some really basic stuff. I get overwhelmed. I need some input to just get me started, i.e., “Day 1. Do xxx, then yyy, then zzz.” Day 2. Do aaa, then bbb, then ccc." Etc.
I kinda think once I get into a schedule or routine, it’ll get easier to continue forward.
What I don’t want to do is to waste a lot of time and energy that does not really move me towards my goal of more muscle size and more muscle strength. Are there some sweet spots that I need to find? Too much weight vs not enough weight? Too many reps vs not enough reps? Too little time between workouts vs too much time between workouts?
I know for some of you guys, this is probably like kindergarten 101. But if ya don’t mind some suggestions to get me started, I’m interested!
