Does anyone have an idea of where to start lifting heavy things given my background, and is it possible to do it at home, or is a gym inevitable? My primary goal is to gain power in the muscles I already have...perhaps a tiny bit of mass, and lean out a bit further.
I've never enjoyed gym-culture, nor do I like spending time in the gym, but want to progress my fitness further, since getting into leangains/IF. I've worried about injuring myself with lifting heavy, as I am a super-beginner, and currently have no gym membership. I prefer not paying for such things...
Stuff about me:
Weight: 150 lbs
Body Fat (Super Rough Estimate): Somewhere between 12%-15%, (I do have 4-pack abdominals, 6-pack/super small spare tire varies with sleep and stress.)
Activity levels: Moderate, standing work desk, standing most of the day.
Primary Exercises: Breakdancing, walking, hiking, occasional wide grip pull-ups on the pull up bar in my doorway. I would describe my body type as agile, lean, but could do with more power in my muscles (not necessarily more mass).
Diet: Mostly my own prepared food, which completely avoids gluten/wheat, excess fructose, excessive seed oils, and sugar. Dairy, properly prepared legumes, and nuts, very sparingly. Sweet potatoes are main starch source, with white rice sometimes. Lots of vegetables and grass-fed beef/lamb. Occasional pork/chicken. Seafood, wild, 3-4 times a week. I don't drink calories. Coffee sometimes. Cheats are often gluten free, and mostly is just high quality ice-cream or super dark chocolate, sometimes wine.
Been doing 16/8 leangains IF eating window. Probably each roughly 700-900 calories per meal, two meals a day. I don't count or care too much about macronutrients. Probably just higher fat on days I don't do anything, and higher carb post-dance/hike.
Sleep: 7-9 hours ish a night.
Currently taking no supplements or vitamins or any powders or anything.
