Of course you can be a Captain Upper Body if you want, but it looks terrible and you won't have any good base strength.

You're going to need to start using a barbell if you want any serious strength & size gains though.
Yeah I don't wanna be 'Captain Upper Body' lol, I was just pointing it out. As for the barbell, unless I buy one and a bench etc, which I actually can't yet unless there are ones for like 20, I can't use the ones at the gym apart from one that is just lying around but I won't be able to change the weight or anything if it's too light), it may be completely the wrong weight. I'll check out out heavy it is, it may be good for deadlifts and/or squats so I can at least get something in but it doesn't look that heavy.

I should still be gaining tho. And I'm not.

You will never get 200 lbs and below 10% if you just hit the light weights and do shitty abs exercises, neglecting legs and any logical intesity and rep-range. Your muscles only grow if you give them stimulation to do so, so if you only go light, why should your muscles think they have any reason to grow? Better tren hard and eat clen instead of training hard and eating clean if that's your philosophy.
to be honest i don't really need to do lots of leg exercises due to the fact i play football, do lots of cycling, do lots of squats and i naturally have good legs anyway, its more the upper body i have needed to work on thanks for the advice, so i have decided to just work on upper body 3 times a week at the gym with some cardio as well

Captain Upper Body's kryptonite is Stiff Leg Deadlifts.

by the way I just started Stiff Leg Dead Lifts after about like a 3 - 4 month hiatus due to hurting myself and being too scared to start them back up. Didn't realize how frail everyone else's Hamstrings were compared to mine.

Gonna use barbells at the gym soon, probably the next time I go. Hopefully nobody asks questions about why I am using them right now instead of waiting.

So I'm training for wrestling school in December/January. I've been going to the gym 5 times a week, and go cardio 20 minutes to begin then I go work on whatever muscles I'm doing that day, I usually do 2 a day like today I did triceps and biceps. I'm shootin for being in good condition, since I know wrestling training is supposed to be hell and also I'm not trying to be the biggest most muscley dude. I kinda want my body like Arik Cannon, having a beer belly but still being fit and able to go long matches. Anyway, is there any advice anyone can give me so I'm ready to begin my dream?

do whatever Chuck Lidell did. He kept his gut but was a beast cardiovascular wise.
