363 lbs at 5’5, you should lose weight lol. TON of it…like 200 lbs of it.[/quote]
x2. no offence but 363lbs at 5’5 IS massively fat.
Saying you want to build muscle ortunatelyicates you don’t already have any. At that height loosing 200lbs is what you want to do.
Seriously. I’m 5’10 and currently coming down from 255, at about 30% bf and i have quite a bit of muscle.
There is no way you are 30% bf, that would mean you have 255lbs of lean mass at 5’5 would mean you have more LBM than pretty much every IFBB Prthinkofessional bodybuilder out there.
Flex lewis, 212 olympia champ is 5’5 and he weighs 212lbs on stage. He is a professional bodybuilder. You are probably more like 60%bf. Sorry dude.[/quote]
No I’m not, but it’s cool I said kg when I meant lbs. I do have muscle just not loads, I can deadlift 130kg (nearly twice my bodyweight) and bench 90kg (1.5x bodyweight), so I’m not a weakling but could do better. Unfortunately I don’t work out consistently as I have to travel for work and spend a lot off time on computers (I’m a film maker) sometimes and have crazy schedule and deadlines. I’m not trying to be a bodybuilder, just want to achieve my goals… I.e be more muscle than fat, be strong enough to lift heavy camera equipment without injuring myself.
I think eating about 120g of protein will probably be enough for me. I am currently doing the huge in a hurry without plan by Chad Waterbury. Hopefully will increase muscle mass that lean down later.
Think my stats are
32-35 % bf
47 % water
18,% muscle mass
Any tips on protein, fat, carb intake would be good.
Cool, glad it is lbs not kgs! as for the protein 200 is a more reasonable number. 1-1.5g per lb.
