JayPierce-My diet hasnt been all that consistent…I slacked off a month of mass eating due to a very busy school schedule. But now with school done, I plan to be much more consistent on my diet and workout(Previously, i havent workouted every time, skipping here and there).
But my diet is:
I dont really count the calories, but rather than grams of protein, carbs, fat, etc. I prlly take around 2500-3000 calories daily.
I usually eat 5 meals a day. Each meal is about 35g of protein, 40g carbs, some fat. Most of the meals are just pork, chicken, or fish with white rich and veggies. My pre and post workout meals are 40g protein shake and a banana. However, one or two days in the week, i wouldnt have time to eat so i just slack off and eat around 2000 calories…could one/two days of not eating alot affect my gain that much?
As for the diff approach for bigger pecs and increase BP, what should i focus on if i want to have wider chest? Thanks[/quote]
Well, if you’re talking about your ribcage, I don’t think there’s anything you can do. But if you’re talking about your pecs, adding mass to the outer portions of the pec should help. DB bench presses and DB flyes are good for it. So is flat bench press in the 8-10 rep range.
But in all honesty you just need to get on a well-rounded program and gain 30-50lbs more muscle before worrying about specifics. I don’t know the Huge in a Hurry program, so I can’t comment on it.
Is that five meals plus the protein shakes? 35g of protien and 40g of carbs for five meals a day = 1500 cals. Quit estimating and nail that shit down. Keep a food log for a week. Measure your food if you have to. You don’t have to have a scale, measuring cups will do.
See, here’s what happens: If you don’t take in enough food, you don’t have enough energy. When you get done with your workout, you’ll feel exhausted and you’ll think you really hit it hard today. But really all you did was run out of gas. Your intensity in the gym will always be lacking if you don’t have energy to drive hard. Giving it everything you got doesn’t mean shit if you’ve got nothing left.
Trust me, I did it for years. Double your diet for the next two weeks and see. You’ll be amazed what a difference it makes in the gym. You know those days when you get done and feel like you could do the same workout all over again? I guarantee you ate more the few days prior.
BTW, I eat between 4200 and 4500 Cals on training days. 3000-3200 on non-training days. I’ve gained almost 40lbs in the last year, and my pants still fit (getting a little snug, but they fit). Don’t look at it as food, look at it as energy and building supplies.
