So a little background on myself. Before i decided to join the marine core and left for boot camp i was 180 lbs at 66 inches. I was in the worst shape of my life. I came out of bootcamp at 155 and then went to Military Combat Training for a month and left there at 143 lbs.
Over the last 4 months i have been at MOS School and i have climbed back up to a more muscular 155lbs. The problem is for the last 4-6 weeks i have been stuck at around 155lbs no matter how much i force myself to eat and how much i train.
Now that im home im in control more of when i train, how much i can train and how much i can sleep. The only thing is im thinking of taking some kind of mass gainer to help put on some weight. Also i have taken a week off from the gym and i start back this monday.
Im just looking for some good sound advice on if i should take a mass gainer and if i should what would be a good one to start with? Also any advice on a great mass building workout regiment would be nice.
To be more specific about my training and such i thought i would add a bit more. I had been training 3-4 days a week. Something like Chest/Tris, Back/Bis, Shoulders/Abs,Forearms.
I know your thinking i didnt train legs but when you ran 3 intensive sessions a week and also on friday did bodyweight leg workouts i really couldnt train legs to well. Now that im home though i plan on incorporating leg days into my workouts too. About my eating i really have no plan besides i eat what i judge to be moderately healthy and eat as much as i can and sometimes i binge on fast food just on the hope of adding a few lbs whether its healthy or not. As far as protein shakes i have been trying to get the most part of my protein from what i eat. Sometimes taking a 40-50 gram protein shake after i workout. Some people think im just not geting enough protein which might be the case but then again i dont know. I still dont know why in 2-3 months i shot up 12 lbs and now i just have deadlined.
