Hi, I am 52, 5'11 and 175lbs. I have always had trouble building up my chest. I lost a lot of weight so right now I look pretty thin everywhere. I want to build up my whole body at the same time. Right now my ribs protrude a lot more then my chest. I have a big rib cage. I would just like to look good all the way around. I want to be fit and healthy as I get older. I just know that when I have worked out in the past my chest doesn't grow much. Also if I lift weights 3 days a week is it better to do different areas of the body each workout or should I continue to do a couple exercises for each part of my body each night? I do cardio two to three times a week. My waist is 33", my biceps are 13", my chest is 42" My rib cage is the same. I used to have a great bubble but, but my partner says I have no ass anymore. I eat 6 to 7 small meals a day. For breakfast I have a whey protein shake with a table spoon of peanut butter, about 2 cups of fresh blueberries, a banana, and about a cup of 1% milk. I have kashi snack bar for mid morning snack, or a hand full of heart healthy nuts. For lunch I have a roast beef or turkey sandwich on whole grain bread, and a fat free yogurt or a large salad with fat free ham, a boiled egg, low fat cheese and a red pepper. I use a vinaigrette dressing. I have a snack a little later of an apple, or an orange, about an hour before I go workout I have an apple with about a tablespoon of peanut butter or a kashi bar. After I work out, I have another protein shake like the one in the morning. About an hour or so later I have dinner. Dinner is usually Chicken or steak, a vegetable and brown rice. Lastly, I sometimes have a cup of yogurt fat free ice cream blend. I know this is long but I wanted to try to give you all the information I could to help you all help me. This is very important to me so Thank you very much to all that respond.
