I’ve been weightlifting fairly consistently for about a year straight, about four or five times per week with considerable gains in strength (I weigh 175lbs and can bench 255lbs). I have a pretty strict diet of mostly just eggs and broccoli. The problem I’m having is that I look like shit. Basically looks like I have a dad bod. Everything is bloated and you can’t really see much of any definition in the muscles I have. I have a lot of sag in my chest and love handles. I don’t get much of any pump in my muscles at the gym or endorphin feeling after. I need to nap after every work out because I feel exhausted.
I have noticed that some days these problems are lessened and things feel a bit tighter. There’s been an increase in body hair across my chest since starting to take lifting more serious. Some days I have body odor but most the time, no.
