    What do you think? but honestly

    Hey Guys,

    Hope you are all safe and well.

    I have been running and lifting (on Fierce 5) for about 10 months now. Lost some weight too: currently 5'10" and 158lbs at 45 years old.
    Please tell me what you think ; what's next?

    First two pics - 2014
    Last two - after today's workout (apologies for bathroom quality)

    Thanks as ever
    Pete

    I would say you have made tremendous improvements.

    It all depends on your goals. You look 'fit', but fairly thin. That is a perfect physique for running, not so much is strength and mass are your goals.

    Certainly an improvement regardless.

    Agree with induced drag - definitely your work is paying off!
    Hard to give more specific feedback depending on your goals.
    What's next is up to you - but I'd say whatever it is if you show the same work and determination you will make progress!
    Why NOT?

    Definitely better. And at 5'10 and 158, you're primed for a very slow bulk. Don't make the mistake nearly everyone makes (myself included) and that's to just get stupid with the calories. Martin Berkhan uses strength to weight ratios as a good metric: if you gain 3-4 lbs on the bar (higher bench, squat, etc) for every lb of bodyweight, then you're making good (mostly) lean gains. But if you gain 1 lb of weight on the bar for 1 lb of bodyweight, then that's a gain that's mostly fat.

    You've leaned out very well.

    What's next? What are your goals? Do you want to start adding muscle mass now?

    158 lbs at 5 10 is really light. Nothing wrong with continuing to run and lifting some weights.

    If that's what you enjoy, do it.
