I've trained for more years than I care to admit, and although the first years were primarily for fat loss as I was 110 kg at 14-15 years old I had alot of it to lose.
Got down to 78 kg at 180 cm, with very little muscle mass. After that I've gone up and down, going as low as 83 kg on occation but usually swinging between 85 and 95 kg.
The thing is, at this bodyweight, I have 37 cm arms, flexed. I just measured my father, and he's got a whopping 31 cm arm, fully flexed, at a height of 184 cm and weight of 90 kg. We're quite similar in that we have large, long upper bodies but with little muscle mass.
Whenever I attmept to gain size I eat squeaky clean, and do some cardio to ward off fat gains as I can easily gain 20 pounds of fat in a month from taking in 4000 clean calories. Being on the Anabolic Diet with only 1 or 0.5 refeed day has helped though.
I'm getting frustrated, looking back at the progress I've made the past three months.
I've eaten from 3500-4500 calories a day, and trained DC-style for the past month. Before that I used a fairly normal bodybuilding routine. I've gained about 20 pounds, but alot of it fat. I would guesstimate I sit at above 20% bodyfat, mostly in the abdominal area.
My best lifts are:
CGBP 100 kg for 7 reps
Front Squat 100 kg for 8 reps
Deadlift 150 kg for 10 reps
Squat 130 kg for 5 reps
Chinups 8 reps
It seems the advice 'Eat a horse and train your ass off' doesn't apply to me, as, although I'm young (23) I gain far too much fat compared to muscle.
I want size dammit!
So the question is, where the hell do I go from this mess?
