Yes, that picture is a before shot, not where I was at 5.4%
Im trying out those 2 links provided for gaining massive and skinny bastard eating, a few questions I have:
With those rep schemes…do I start low and increase? Or do I start high and decrease? Or do I try to find a steady weight to span all sets?[/quote]
Not entirely clear from the article, but my guess is that he wants you to use a weight you can get 12 reps with for your first set, but only just. Subsequent sets you might not get as many. BTW, forget about “12 weeks to absolute masshood”! 12 years might be more accurate.[quote]
Massive eating, I have a home scale…is it reasonable to assume that on this new diet I should weigh myself every morning after the morning piss, and confirm that I have indeed gained weight, if not add more?[/quote]
No. weigh yourself once a week AT MOST. Every two weeks is better. If you haven’t gained weight, this could mean a number of things: (1) you are not eating enough (2) your scales are not very reliable or (3) you are not as well hydrated as you were at last weighing.
If it is two weeks or more since you last weighed yourself, this reduces the chance that no weight gain is due to (2) or (3). Therefore increase your cal intake by 500/day.[quote]
If im going to be low on sleep Thurs-Sun…should I not weight lift those days?[/quote]
Not necessarily. You are young and should have good recovery. Try lifting Mon Tues Wed Fri. If this leaves you too tired, drop one day.[quote]
Do I HAVE to be strict on the fat…? Afterall I am a skinny ass bastard here
No, in fact you need significant amounts of fat. For many people, it is not fat that makes them fat but carbs (particularly sugar, grains and starchy veges). Your fat intake should be balanced, however. Around 1/3 saturated, 1/3 monounsaturated and 1/3 polyunsaturated is what you should aim for.
You should also aim for a proper balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fats. Most western diets are very deficient in Omega 3s (found in fish). The simplest remedy is to take fish oil caps. Try 10 a day.[quote]
Can I get any reviews of this combination? I’d love some feedback as to its effectiveness before investing strained hours.[/quote]
