Hi, I'm a 25 year old male from the UK and need advice on many matters.
Basically the situation is that I play football (soccer) on a regular basis and am finding I'm struggling a bit physically. (and I also want to look better of course) Cardio is not a problem whatsoever, I had a backround in boxing as a teenager and seem to have never really lost my staminer or mental strength but I'm really skinny. I'm 5'8 and weigh 150. My diet is pretty shocking to tell you the truth, I drink loads of larger and a fair amount of fatty foods. The intention was to spend a couple of weeks doing cardio and drinking no booze to try and lose this bit of flab around my stomach before commencing training.
I'm gonna give myself a 4 month window between football seasons to train my arse off and muscle up. I want to know what is the best regime to follow - i'm sure some of you guys will have a model to follow for a beginner. Also what type of supplements are best for my situation? I'm not to sure about juicing either but have done some research and would not be against it if recommended, I'll really try anything to add some bulk.
What is a realistic weight gain I can expect in 4 months and will a cycle make that much of a difference? I'll have access to a good gym and be looking at 5 sessions a week I guess.
Any input will be gladly taken on board.
