From Skinny-Fat Bastard to Just Skinny… Time to Bulk
I was your average skinny-fat guy. Bulk? I was already ~20%bf. Cut? I weighted 132 pounds (5’4). So I was thinking, what the hell was I supposed to do? After a year of playing soccer pretty intensely, I started weight training during the season (been at it for about 2-3 months). Bulking while doing the amount of aerobic training/conditioning required for soccer wasn’t really working out… Now I’ve become just plain skinny. Well you’ve got to have a “base” to begin with right?
So anyway, after reading lots of bulking articles and John Berardi stuff, I’ve got a plan, but of course I need the input of more experienced people.
I’ve included some pix btw
Weight: 128.7 pounds
Bodyfat: According to Tanita, I’d say 11-12% (need input here)?
Meal 1 - 1 cup oats, 3.53oz blueberries, 6 whites 1 whole egg, 1 tsp flaxseed, apple.
Meal 2 - 6oz chicken (raw weight), 1 tbsp flaxseed, 1 cup broccoli, 1 onion, mesclun salad.
Meal 3 - 1 cup rice (cooked), 4.23oz lean sirloin beef (raw weight), tomato, onion, mesclun.
Meal 4 (preworkout) - 25g carb energy, 1 scoop whey.
Meal 5 (post-wo) - 50g carb energy, 1 scoop whey, 1/2 cup oats.
Meal 6 - 5.3oz sweet potato, 1 tsp flaxseed, 6 oz chicken, broccoli, onion, mesclun.
Meal 7 - 7oz blueberries, 7oz cottage cheese, 1 tbsp 100% natural PB.
TOTAL: 2800 cals (C/P/F): 340/200/70
All advice is appreciated. I’ve got some specific questions though:
Are these too many/too little cals? I’ve calculated using Berardi’s Massive Eating thing, and this is much more cals than other calculators put me at.
My goal is to hit 143 pounds (65kg). How much weight should I be looking to gain a week so as not to gain a heck load of bodyfat as well? Estimated, how long will this take me?
As you can see from my pix, I was a fat-skinny guy, so does that make me endo? But now I’m skinnier, am I still endo or ecto or what? This has to do with calorie calculations as well, I’m not sure whether I should be calculating like ecto (faster metabolisms) or endo (slower).
As a former fat kid, I like to eat But I don’t want to make it so I gain 20 pounds but only 2 pounds of muscle or something like that
