Gym Noob advice
The basics: just turned 30, never been out of shape per say, but never been in shape either. Hard work keeps me from being overweight pretty much. 6'1" tall tipping the scales at about 180. Never been the gym type, always just the weak guy around, gyms make me uncomfortable when i am the smallest guy in the room.
Looking to bulk up a bit. I don't want to be Huge by any means, but would like to gain overall strength. Upper body is my focus. Last time i was on a bench press, 135lbs was all i could manage.
any suggestions for me? I have been going to the gym for about 3 months, mainly to support my wife in her weight loss goals. Been doing some machines and cardio. They are supporting her, but not helping me towards my goal of strength gains. as mentioned above, i am weak so it is pretty intimidating to go to the free weights and follow the guy who just benched 350 with my little 135.
