    Honestly, I feel like a diet is something that you shouldn't plan. I've been doing sports daily for 3 months already, lost about 20 kilos and now my muscles are building up, yet I still eat a little unhealthy.
    Edit: You should know yourself how much you want to eat, balance it out with sports, don't hunger.

    most people immediately brand mcdonalds and shit as bad for bodybuilding

    I mean yeah dont go eating it every five seconds but a lot of their selections do have high protein and carbohydrates, which are two essential things - it's just the fat you have to watch

    i mean depending on what you're going for then burgers and stuff can be pretty good for it

    as long as its from non-fast food chains
    Not planning your diet to even the smallest degree is impossible

    you do it every time you go get the groceries for the week

    ot: how many situps/pushups/back bends/ do you fellas do each day

    i have shit divided into certain muscle groups per workout but uh

    on the day i work stomach it's usually like 100 crunches (over 3 different types) and 30 situps on top of that

    pushups i've yet to incorporate into my workouts because my chest/bicep/tricep workouts are already knarly as fuck

    just look up collections of exercises per muscle group, there's heaps of websites - youtube channels too

    my dad worked out a lot for me so i couldnt give you any solid links, but just look them up per muscle group; bicep/tricep, chest, stomach, back, shoulders, legs, etc

    it looks complicated as fuck at first but once you've got a routine going it's as smooth as b u t t e r

    i wouldnt have made the progress i have if it werent for him

    morning routine is 20 pushups, 30 squats, 20 sit ups
    night/after cardio routine (before shower & bed) is 20 pushups, 30 back bends and 20 sit ups

    doesn't need to be anything brutal, it's just to get the rest of the groups you don't get covered in and it's pretty easy to do

    it being spread over the day also makes it a lot easier

    Been hitting the gym more and more over the years and am starting to become really proud of my body, muscles growing and stamina getting better. I also think more of what I put in my body nowadays.

    I actually switched to do these two daily:

    and afterwards this:

    When I feel more confident I will go up a level with the ab workout, just recently switched to level two. Great workout to be honest.

    oh yeah it's just down to preference really, i much prefer attacking each muscle group rather than doing overall type stuff

    also @Snowl workouts are gonna be entirely based on your goal and what kind of restrictions you have (be it anything from medical restrictions to equipment restrictions) but here's mine if it helps you get a good idea

    (1 set = 10 repetitions, for reference)
    (warm ups you use less weight, but do 12 repetitions)
    (you can look these up by name, it should all come up)

    day 1 - chest/shoulders:
    chest: 3 sets chest press (cable machine) - warm up
    chest: 3 sets pec deck (cable machine) - warm up
    chest: 3 sets lateral laydown (cable machine)
    chest: 3 sets low incline bench press
    chest: 3 sets single dumbbell bench press
    chest: 3 sets normal barbell bench press
    chest: 3 sets chest incline flies
    shoulders: 3 sets close grip pulldown (cable machine) - warm up
    shoulders: 3 sets lateral pulldown behind (cable machine) - warm up
    shoulders: 3 sets wide grip pulldown (cable machine)
    shoulders: 3 sets upright barbell
    shoulders: 3 sets seated barbell military press
    shoulders: 3 sets single-arm linear jammer
    day 2 - bicep/tricep
    bicep: 3 sets dumbbell bicep curl - warm up
    bicep: 3 sets barbell curl
    bicep: 3 sets hammer curl
    bicep: 3 sets standing bicep curl (cable machine)
    bicep: 3 sets incline hammer curl
    tricep: 3 sets cable rope overhead (cable machine) - warm up
    tricep: 3 sets tricep bench press
    tricep: 3 sets cable pushdown (cable machine)
    tricep: 3 sets seated tricep press
    tricep: 3 sets cable rope overhead
    day 3: back/stomach
    back: 3 sets wide grip seated cable row (cable machine)
    back: 3 sets dumbbell incline row
    back: 3 sets barbell deadlift
    back: 3 sets decline bench dumbbell pullover
    back: 3 sets one-arm deadlift (i dont recall the actual name, so this is it - essentially just lifting it entirely with your back)
    stomach: 3 sets crunches (cable machine) - warm up
    stomach: 3 sets (of 20) crunches
    stomach: 1/2 sets cross crunches
    stomach: 1/2 sets long arm crunches
    stomach: 60 second full/elbow plank
    stomach: 3 sets (of 20) crunch kicks
    stomach: 1/2 sets (of 20) flutter kicks
    stomach: 1/2 sets (of 20) leg raises
    day 4: legs
    1h treadmill
    3 sets leg extensions
    3 sets floor calf raise with dumbbells
    3 sets dumbbell full squat
    3 sets stiff legged dumbbell deadlift
    3 sets barbell deadlift (entirely using your legs to lift, as opposed to back deadlifts)
    3 sets cable kick-back (cable machine)
    then 3 days rest

    it's entirely up to you what you want to do; i must admit i torture myself a lot, but it's only a mindset thing - i feel as though the more i push, the more progress i make.

    hope it helps lad

    workout music YEEEE

    As long as your protein intake is about 1.5-1.7 grams for every kg in ur body ull be fine, it's more of a matter of if you e got a high body fat percentage that makes it matter if you intake more calories
