I hope no one minds me joining this forum as I am not a bodybuilder and never will be... However, I think it would be helpful for me as I have recently joined a gym and would like to improve my body.
I am 26 years old and until three weeks ago hadn't done any formal exercise since leaving school (and even then I was lazy
). I am considered slim though, but it's not good slim!
I have started running 5km three times a week or more, which for me is a big achievement! I am also using the weight machines and hoping to build up strength.
This is where I'm wondering if anyone could kindly help me. I seem to carry almost all of my fat in my lower body and the top half of my body is horrible and skinny. I am virtually flat-chested, which of course I hate. I have started working on my pectorals in the hope that it will improve the look (I would never get implants).
I am not sure what to do about eating. I want to lose my flab but gain muscle too. I've been cutting calories but eating a healthy unrefined diet. I also don't know if doing 30 reps three times a week will do anything for me!
