This is my 1st time posting so no haters plz
Just so u dont read to far only to find out ive mislead u, this post is going to be about getting advice about a new approach to my lifts this yr i.e calories, ratios and general basics as i have a nagging feelin i may be a hardgainer, not putting on any weight and infact loosing a kilo in the past 3 months but am also open to the criticism of naiveity re: calorie intake.
Ok so here goes;
This year im starting uni and want to knuckle down and take bb’ing srsly. I’ve just turned 18 this yr but have been training half heartedly for a couple of yrs now. Before that i was quite an overweight kid which lead to eating disorders etc etc but thats not relevant. Here is the usual speel; (ill convert to lbs so its easier 4 u guys ;P)
- Just how many calories should i be consuming per day to make max ‘clean’ gains?. Im getting a bit frustrated and frankly my mood fluctuates from motivated and pumped to being damn near desperate fat feeling on a weekly basis…Ive used calcs which give figures around 3700kcals, advice from supp store ops of around 3000 and just dont know who to believe
2.After much chopping and changing ive decided to give a downloaded program from bb.com a try which is a 3-day FBW per week. Is a FBW program best suited to a relative novice who just wants to see a result? (dont remind me that patience is the key!! :P)
- I think my problem is that i cant bring myself to eat shit, and subsequently eat alot of healthy foods and struggle to stomach it all. What r some good ways to sneak in cals? i.e i recently bought powdered oats to sneak into my shakes…although when uni starts ill probs just buy a mass gainer.
4.Lastly, or at least the only other thing i can think of atm is that im struggling to activate my chest in my routines, i can just never achieve the burn or DOMS that i can get with my legs and tris from some reason. Although i am aware that this could again come down to cals. Its just that in the past 3 months ive only added 5-7kg’s to my bench which = 11-15lbs.
Any mentoring advice would be warmly welcomed :))) I do a lil bit of modeling and really want to bring my physique up to par with ma head haha if that doesnt sound too up myself :S
I do all the stuff like aminos, creatine and 6 meals per day…trying to acheive a ratio of 2:1 carbs to pro.
