The attached profile images are views of my body from a few angles. I've been living with this body for a while, but it wasn't until a couple of months ago I really started to question myself. "Why is my abdomen so wide?" "How come my pelvis is high up like that?" "How come kids my age can do a pullup with ease while I struggle?" After all that, I decided to hit the gym.
Corona screwed up my plans, but for about five weeks I was following the 5/3/1 program after browsing the Reddit fitness wiki for a bit.
My last 1RM:
- Squat and Deadlift was 90 lbs;
- Bench ~60-65 lbs;
- OHP 55 lbs.
Supplements were (10x10 sets):
- Captain's Chair lifts;
- Chest Press;
I tried to do cardio for in-between days, with a day or two of rest per week. I also dabbled in general dieting, but I'm still clueless about what I should and shouldn't eat. Different bodies process and utilize energy from food differently, so I'm a bit skeptical following strict diets. I especially avoid fad diets like keto and paleo, because I want something that just works for my body.
I'll provide some more info alongside my reference images. I'm an 18-year-old male, having only done cross country running as a sport. This takes place early summer to fall, so it's a 6 month practice period. Otherwise, you can find me at home on the computer. In short, I'm somewhat unathletic. I weight around 140 lbs and I'm 5'8" tall. Also, I have anxiety and somewhat disorganized. I don't have many friends and go out often, but I have a few I talk and cherish often. Aside from that, I'm not very social. My family and doctors have said multiple times in the past my body is ok and that I just have "low muscle tone" and "genetics", but I know something is definitely off about this thing I walk around in. Since I can't see my PCP 'cause of corona, I'd like to know if you guys see anything off or have some advice.
Goal: develop muscle mass, reduce fat, and flatten my abdomen and stomach. I also want to sprint a bit faster and do pullups without struggle.
TL;DR: 18 y/o male, 140lbs, 5'8", don't really work out, asocial, stressed and depressed. I'm looking to gain insight on my body and health advice.
