Hey all I’m 19 and looking to gain size. Currently 163, standing 5’10. 7%bodyfat.
Calorie intake : 3500- 5000 a day. ( im a college student, its hard to be perfect.)
Taking a Protein power with a carbohydrate blend 2x a day.
Been lifting the past 2 years with a much higher intensity, however my progress, from my point of view unacceptable.
Bench is struggling, I do the movement correctly as Dave Tate demonstrated. still plateau at a plate 25.
Squatting is par… 225 is my max.
Deadlift is 315 at max
Constantly reading articles here on T Nation, open to new new advice always. Have Leg, Back, Chest, Arm, Shoulder days. Lift at least 4 times a week.
So… any opinions?
Also Im avoiding all creatine, im allergic to that and beta alanine
