Hey thata a ridiculous ammount of caliries!!!
What are your results with muscle gains? It says in the book 1-2 lbs a week, isnt that a bit too much? Can we reAlly expect to gain lean 1-2 lbs a week? Apparently the most we can gain is 0.5lbs a week, everything else is fat.
Im trying to bulk (on anabolic diet) and im eating quite a lot, 4200 cal (im 179cm 10-11 %bf). I was making very small gains for the last 2 weeks on those cals, like couple hundreds of grams a week. This week i need to stay away from weights coz i injured myself. This is my 3rd day off and this morning i already weigh almost a kilo less. Is it normal that we loose weight during week off or do i just need to increase cals?
Rule of thumb, BW X 18. This is for loosing weight. I used the bench mark of X24 for maintenance and X32 for gaining.
My “gaining” calories were in excess of 6000 cal a day on the AD.
apart from that, get more info on the diet. Gaining weight and AD are hard. Not impossible, but hard. I personally could not maintain that much calories over time. I believe CT has an article here on the very subject.
When you injure yourself, you don’t stay away. You find ways to stay mobile, active and engage without pain.[/quote]
