I’ve been lurking here for a few months now and it’s about time I joined up. Seems a great place to learn how to get huge from people who actually got huge rather than internet scientists and PubMed ninjas that plague other forums.
Little bit about me:
21 Y/O from the UK. Recovered teen anorexic (lowest weight was 140lbs at 5foot10). Started training about 2 1/2 years ago doing a 4 day bodypart split, progressively switched things up and I’m now i’m up to 180lbs at circa 12-13%BF and hitting the gym 6 days a week. (I’ll post proper before/afters when I’ve actually achieved some size worthy of note).
I guess my question is, if I’m wanting to break 220lbs as a minimum, how fat do I need to allow myself to get at this stage? I’m currently eating around 3600kcal which seems a lot and my weight isn’t going up at any terrific rate, maybe a pound every 2-3 weeks BUT at the same time I’m not lean. So is it time to look at my training or do I simply need to eat more/give it time?
Thanks for reading
