O.k, a few points in another thread on here got me thinking. And I suppose this thread is aimed at those who have already built a fare amount of muscle mass at some point.
I want to know, what did it take for you to get big(er)? How did you train? How did you eat?
For me, when I weighed around 250lbs or so, I had to force feed myself, I literally had to throw food into my mouth and chase it down with fluids. Lots of carbs, lots of protein.
Training wise, yes, I trained hard and heavy, but with large amounts of volume. But interestingly enough, I trained completely instinctively. I ate that way too. Nothing was calculated, I did what I felt I had to do, listened to my body, and it worked. When I was tired, I did less, when I was up for it, I tore it up.
O.k, now its a bit different, illness, injury and things aside, I have to be a bit more meticulus, but without that initial ‘instinctive’ phase of my training life, I probably wouldnt know what to do now.
So, to those that have, how did you do it?
