Right now dude, as of yesterday actually, I am not doing anything but my normal meals, and water w/electrolytes, no kind of supplements except Tsp of turmeric in my coffee. I was taking some like collagen, C, Zinc. I just want to try and get all I can from my foods right now. That doesn’t mean I won’t add in supps later, I just wasn’t feeling good, and felt maybe something I was taking extra was messing me up. I don’t believe I have a bug.
But, all your info is very welcome and I will look into your suggestions (your way of doing things) as I can learn something from everyone that shares their methods. I’ve been told numerous times, that I don’t look my age, I look much older, LOLLLLLLL, just kidding. And comparatively speaking, I don’t have a lot in common as far as physical activities with others my age, even younger. But I still know the fact is, my body is still 7 decades old so I am very careful and will find my way with the weights.
I don’t care for the fact that to up my weights on some of the equipment, I have to add a whole 10 lbs. It too heavy for me on some. We have a new pulley machine that has smaller increments of weight but the pulleys aren’t as smooth on that one. May ask the owner about that, like can they be oiled etc.
I’m big on walking/walks just to keep me moving, even on rainy days. I easily do a 4 mile an hour walk but usually just 30 min. I think my protein is pretty high, and I even now do bigger portions since starting the gym 7 or so months ago. I love my Salmon (wildcaught Alaskan) and my red meats are usually the cheaper cuts like round steak. I eat chicken, and pork as well, a side of brocoli or cauliflower, spinach (baby spinach cooked with eggs and sausage, cheese)
I do throw in a tsp of flaxseed, chia seed and nutritional yeast in the a.m. breakfast. I can’t remember what all I put in my OP right now but I am 5’2", small bones and losing from 140 down to 110 in 2 years of keto, left me with some loose skin and look skinny, even though my muscle seems in tact.
Ok that’s way more than I planned on writing I do very slow workouts, focus on the muscle I want to work, and listen to my body. I appreciate all you shared because that was what I wanted to hear, how others are building muscle. I think everyone has to find their training routine, but the basics of nutritional needs, and not over-doing, or under-doing workouts. I do know after exerting myself just a little more helped me sleep so good lastnight, and today will be close to the same routine
