Every time my step-brother starts talking with me about lifting, he says im eating way to much since im only lifting 3x a week (Starting Strength).
He tells me I will get fat so I need to lift every day like he did. (He says he gained 90 pounds on the bench press in 2 weeks just by lifting every day, I say thats impossible unless he was using horrible form when he started)
He is pretty strong, but I don’t think he really understands that lifting every day isn’t the only way to get strong fast. (He also thinks 15 pounds a week increase for the Squat is not very good).
So is my step-bro right when he says lifting every day is the fastest way to get stronger, or he is just lucky to have gained fast doing this?
