Vailt Posted July 24, 2015 Report Share Posted July 24, 2015 Hello everyone. I am 18 years old, 178 cm (5â€™8â€™â€™) and only 55 kg (123 lb). When I was younger I was rather a chubby kid, who started to feel worried mainly of his man boobs. So I started working out, going to the gym, started eating healthy.. I was going to the gym without any program or something and made no significant progress..Then I started to count calories.. I was obsessed with it and I was basically undereating and so I got to this weight.. I donâ€™t even look like a man no more..Now Iâ€™d really love to gain some weight and muscle. So I started doing Stronglifts 5x5.. The bad thing is that I have big shoulder blades and spine in bad condition and I donâ€™t want to make it even worse.. So I was thinking about bodyweight training, but thatâ€™s probably not really effective for getting big (or is it?). And also, I like that feeling of getting stronger on my lifts, but recently I really stalled on my squat and didnâ€™t even complete first 5 reps. The bad thing is that I donâ€™t have squat or power rack I don't shoot for bodybuilders physique, I just want to get bigger and stronger.. But thereâ€™s still one problem.. Many guys who were at the same place will know that feeling.. I basically still worry too much about food and I donâ€™t eat enough. Itâ€™s still in my head that Iâ€™m that fat kid and I just donâ€™t want to go back there.. I donâ€™t know why, but I automatically avoid carbs (basically eating only oatmeal in the morning for carbs). Plus the days I am not working out, sometimes I still undereat on those days (thatâ€™s reason why Iâ€™d maybe like to train more often - to eat more food). And it really drives me mad.. Another thing is, that even when I am still such skinny, I still worry about my â€œboobsâ€.. I just still see them like they were and still canâ€™t be confident about them.. So I am including photos and Iâ€™d like to hear your opinion (mainly on my chest) and advice.. Does it look like I have gyno or something? Iâ€™ll be very thankful for any reply and please donâ€™t hate me if you havenâ€™t been through what Iâ€™ve been through.. Itâ€™s much harder than it sounds.. Thank you Photos: Quote Link to comment
