Hey man, I really appreciate the kind comments. I actually have a couple questions, if you don’t mind me asking.
Since I began weightlifting in 2013, I’ve only ever ‘cut’. These last 5 months have been my first ones
bulking, and I’m wondering at what rate I can expect to build muscle. I know there are predictive models out there based on years of training experience, so I guess I’m asking if I’ve already “used up my newbie gains.” If I have, I’m afraid that eating even more than I am now will do more to accelerate fat accumulation than muscle growth.
Second, if you couldn’t tell, my chest is noticeably less developed than the rest of my body, which is probably due to incorrect pressing technique for the majority of my time training. Do you have any recommendations for bringing it up to speed?
Right now, I perform 3 sets of 4-6 reps on my chest day, which consists of barbell flat and incline bench, dumbbell incline bench, and weighted dips. Three days later, I do 3 sets of 8-10 on one selected chest exercise on my arms day.
I’ll start with those for now!
