This is my first post here, because I need some help. I am a terrible 62kg, and really want to gain weight. I have read, read and read on the net and lots of the great articles here, so I think i know a little bit - i.e. im not coming here being lazy and wanting it all fed to me! First off, here is my work out and diet.
Day 1 - Push:
Day 2 - Pull:
Barbell bicep curls
Bent-over barbell row
Day 3 - legs:
I take a day of inbetween workouts, and I do 3 sets of 8 reps at max weight. I have tried pyramiding reps and weights, but lots of people have told me max weights for 3x8, so that’s what I am doing.
Now, what I am eating (this is a sample):
Glass of milk (+ my multivitamin pills - I take GNC Ultra Gold Men or something, and a GNC Vitamin b-12 complex)
2/3 slices of fullgrain bread with meat + cheese OR bowl of oats + milk, or a muesli
2 large meat + veggie sandwiches, 2 glasses of milk
Set lunch consiting of a piece of meat + 3 servings of vegetables. Glass of juice.
Cooked meal by my lovely mum, and is usually meat with 3/4 servigns of veggie, + salad. Glass of juice.
Before bed (10pm)
I have worked out with the calculators on this site i need 2750 calories and 111g of protein a day to gain weight. The 2 protein shakes between them have 700 calories and 120g of protein, and so I’m sure I’m getting it. WHAT IS GOING ON!!
I have been on this for about 4 months now and not budged at all. I am really, really, really lost here!
Many thanks and warmest regards,
