He’s also seeking to attain a VERY difficult thing: 25 pounds of muscle in a year! That’s almost 1/2 a pound of muscle per WEEK on average.
I HATE being rude… but I really don’t think that someone who asks what the proper diet is for gaining has the dexterity or is in the position to gain 25 pounds of muscle in a year.
i can gain it sooner than that I got good genes for that sort of thing.[/quote]
You can gain 25 pounds of muscle in less than a year?! You better be a total newbie then!
You got the genes for this sort of thing? Well, this isn’t all about genes!
It’s obvious what I say rings true–that you don’t have the DEXTERITY/COMPETENCE–considering that you even asked if 4,500 calories was the recommendation for day or week’s worth of food.
I’m NOT saying this to not go for your goal or that you CAN’T. I’m saying that if you don’t go trough the giant pain in the ass of giving yourself a thorough nutrition education; or seek out the advice of a professional; or some other well-educated person who’ll counsel you for free, AND applying this information, then you can’t make good gains, let alone a stellar, jaw-dropping result of 25 pounds of muscle gained in LESS THAN A YEAR.
What I’m saying is, people who are in the POSITION to embark on that goal either have someone helping them with their diet or know how to do it themselves already. Granted, you can set up your diet in a day if you just figure out how to design one. But it will take some adjustment and experimentation to see which one works for you, and this experimentation can slow down gains. If you’re very experienced with your body and diet, then you don’t need much experimentation anymore. That’s what I mean by POSITION.
I don’t know if I’ve explained myself well or not, but maybe it came across OK.
AND we also left out how you’re training… to gain 25 lbs in a year.
