I’m trying at the minute to put on some good muscle; I’m 19 years old, 5’ 10/ 5’ 11 and 111lbs (I’ve always been really light and skinny…) I’m not really seeing increases in my weight. But here’s the deal…
I’m a competitive cyclist and so 4 days a week I train hard for an hour in the morning, plus during the day have to do a LOT of walking, as well as lifting 4 days a week. I’ve found that with training legs in the past it began to affect my cycling 'cos I was always sore and stiff, and my trainer wasn’t too pleased, so implementing legs into a training routine would be difficult… I wanna pack on some good lean mass, I’m eating around 3.5k of good, healthy food a day (don’t cheat at all,) lifting 4 days a week, hitting each muscle group twice a week;
MON; Chest/ Shoulders/ Tri’s
TUES; Back/ Bi’s/ Abs
THURS; Chest/ Shoulders/ Tri’s
FRI; Back/ Bi’s/ Abs
On rest days I eat a good bit less because I’m not training (although am still fairly active,) plus at my weight don’t need to eat huge amounts to be over maintenance, so around 2600-2700 calories.
Is there anything anybody thinks I should change about what I’m doing? I don’t know if I can actually find the time to “Eat More” on training days…
