Training Since two years still a noob

#1 Postby vktewari » Sun Jul 08, 2012 11:59 am

Hi, everyone on this forum. I am from India and a lacto-vegetarian. I was 87KG at 5'8" and very much of a sedentary type about two years ago. I got fed up of my chubby look, and hence decided to get fit. I started some cardio and some light weight lifting and lost 22KGs since then. But recently I decided to go on a bulk and gain some muscle. The program I am currently using is Rippetoes Starting Strength and have been gaining at a good rate. My current stats are Squats: 167lbs for 5 reps, Bench 129lbs for 5 reps, Overhead Press 88lbs for 5 reps, and Deadlift 205lbs for 5 reps. I want to prove to my mates that even vegetarians can build a whole lot of muscle and reading the articles on this site makes me even more confident.
Some info:
Age: 23 years
Weight: 68KG(On a bulk since 4 weeks)
