    Its been about 5 months now since I joined RJ and started going to the gym more regularly and Ive just put up 3 photos of my progress.

    Let me know what you think please. Am I doing enough? Is that a decent amount of progress for 5 months?

    Thanks in advance guys

    Have you taken weights/measurements? That's a good way of monitoring your progress. You do seem to have gained weight in the recent pics so you're on the right track.

    Ive not taken any measurements of my arms or chest, but I know Ive put on about 4 kilos, I just hope the extra weight is going to the right places. Im finding it really hard to get a defined 6 pack, I think I need to do more cardio.

    Noooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    You need to be patient and continue what you're doing. Building muscle mass takes a long time. Give it another year or so and your abs will gradually become more visible as the muscles gain size.

    it's really difficult to lose fat and put on muscle at the same time.

    So if your goal is a six pack, eat and work out accordingly and if your goal is more muscle then u will most likely put on some fat.

    I am by no means an expert in this, but I have learned from experience that not having a true idea which goal you want will leave you with months of getting no where. Even if eating healthy, you have to decide if you want to be in a calorie surplus or deficit and try to stick with it

    So with that being said more cardio is never bad (keeps your heart strong), but if your goal is muscle you must make up the calories you burn with food.

    And if your goal is a six pack (like my current goal) then you will have to eat less, but still make sure you lift to keep yourself from losing too much muscle.

    Hope this advise helped, as I learned this the hard way.
