Ahhhhhh i am so sore

I lifted the past two days after mostly doing just cardio all of 2019. I’m a sore man. I cannot fully extend my arms, in fact my angle of extension is roughly equal to C3P0s, I’ve had to walk around with my arms like this all day. I’m gonna keep it going with legs tomorrow

recently i tried to do an "easy" initial run of a 5X5 @ 135 for squats after as also initial upper body run. I was def suffering but felt good to have done it.

I racked out and grabbed a basketball, idea being I dribble around and have fun and keep my heart rate up.

I do that for 20 minutes, tell myself good job, do 10 more minutes for the glory. "back in the gym baby!"

and as I'm picking up my stuff some young 20 yr old challenges me to 21.

My muscles are off to f'n begin with so for the first half of the game (12-2) I mostly play defense because all my shots are spaghetti armed and airballs. I saved grace and made a couple lay ups he could stop and 2 threes. 12-21. He wanted to go again but i needed to throw up

finally getting into being a fitness sociopath.

i've done some distance running in the past but never attempted any weight training so all this diet/routine is very new to me. i'm looking for some advice because the self help guru/aspirational con artist aspect that seems to follow this stuff around makes it hard to find reliable info online

thus far i've just been doing at home kettle bell routines and taking my final reps pretty much to the point of failure (this is about a 30m daily work out + some light cardio afterwards). i bought some vegan protein shake and have been tracking my macro's to the best of my ability.

i'm taking this pretty seriously and plan on being one of those before/after picture reddit dudes in 6-12 months so i have a few questions:

is this type of workout enough or should i be hitting the gym and doing weight training there (and if so, is there a gym routine i can follow as a beginner)?

should be i super neurotic in calculating my macro's or can i just be happy with getting a bunch of protein?

is it ok to train 6/7 days a week or are rest days genuinely valuable apart from preserving your mentality?

e: also if anyone has any good resources and doesn't feel like answering these questions directly feel free to point me in that direction

what's your current body type and what is your primary focus? like put on weight/muscle or just lose weight? what you'll do varies off that

if eating around 2500 calories with some healthy stuff in there, you're probably already meeting your macros. i never really need to track it. if you're cutting or bulking, focus on tracking the calories. myfitnesspal app is decent enough

gym is the way to go for most. can join a basic cheap one though. for routine, can search around for beginners ones. lot of us have gotten good results with push/pull/legs split, look that up

rest days are important, that's when the muscles grow. some people just work like one muscle a day though, so those can go daily but that's unnecessary unless you're trying to do a physique competition or some shit

i'm about 5'7 135lbs with very little muscle definition. i want to add some muscle but i have a little anxiety about caloric surplus from being an overweight kid and losing it/keeping it off with minor fluctuations in the ~12 years since.

i'm really only doing this for aesthetic/confidence purposes. i already lead a pretty healthy lifestyle and have zero interest in building strength/hitting number goals aside from it being a natural byproduct from exercising.

the p/p/l thing was something i found in my cursory search and seems like it may be the way to go, can it be assumed that any of those routines i find through google will be relatively comparable?

if that's the case, I'd do mostly just weights, high reps and sets. 12-20 reps moderate weight, don't go to failure, rest 1-2 min between each set. start around 3-4 sets per lift/machine, after like a month or two you can bump it to 4-6 sets.

eat a caloric surplus, not really something to concern yourself with on gaining too much weight, your bmi is low so as long as you're lifting regularly you won't get much fat on you, mostly muscle. can start to tweak cals a little once get to 145-150lbs. for now just have fun with it. limit cardio to just like 15 min for it's non weight loss benefits

most p/p/l routines are fairly similar

i have to take mucinex d every day until forever? for allergy-induced vertigo and man it's the best appetite suppressant ever. should have gotten into eca stacking forever ago. i'm averaging like 1300 calories a day so far in 2020 and that's with compelling myself to eat just for the sake of eating, not because i'm hungry. i've lost the holiday weight already. i'm sure i'll reach some kind of equilibrium soon but i guess i'll ride this wave as far as it takes me

depends on the look you want and how much resistance you'll be able to progress on with just kettle bells (if they cap at like 25 lbs, than probably not much)

you'll def drop weight and tighten up with what you're doing to look different than how you started.

but if you want to have fuller, larger muscles across a balanced physique (an "aesthetic" or physique model look), then I'd suggest a weight training program like PPL or dogcrapp that emphasizes building strength and mass through compound lifts. if you have the patience/luxury, I'd stick with it for about 6 mo. until the movements get more comfortable and your progress is steady and then move on to a routine w/ more volume like PPL for the next 6 mo. to accelerate gains.

but that's all to say the biggest factor, for either case, will always be diet. it's responsible for 75% of the outcome. in the former, as long as you're eating at your maintenance (called TDEE, which you can calculate online) or below, you'll see results; but for the more dramatic transformation of the latter, you'll need to make sure you're eating enough during the strength and mass building (at least TDEE or a surplus of 250-500 cals above) and then monitor a deficit if you're goal is an aesthetic appearance w/ low body fat.

finally started to exercise and it's nice that being consistent (lifting 4x/ wk running 2x/wk for the last few weeks) is already making me feel great and much more tone/capable.

my big problem now is diet? i can't really afford to eat a ton more food but i am ... always hungry now. And I don't wanna throw off my progress by eating like shit all of a sudden :/

so i guess my Q is what are like THE major tips anyone would make for just maintaining the right nutrition? i know i can google this and i have, but im curious about the HPN take. I'm not looking to look any particular way, just feel tone and energized for now.

I'm going to do and sell this new routine where you do three exercises a day

One set
One rep

But that one rep takes 15 minutes start to finish, so 7:30 negative on the bench press, 7:30 to push the bar back up

no restrictions really but i tend not to cook much meat at home. i do salmon and tuna but i guess i might need to up the regularity. sounds like i'm eating the right stuff but just need to up my quantities probably.
