A little history about myself…
Well I’m not a beginner, I have been weight lifting for about a year. I haven’t had much success for about 8 months because of not eating enough and not training with intensity. The last 4 months I have made tremendous gains. My 1rep max bench went from ~52kgs(114.5lb) to ~85kgs(187lb)(I never actually benched it, but this is a much longer story of why I could. Its at the bottom if you want to read why I could.)
I am on vacation in Australia(been about 2 weeks), then I will be back in New Zealand for 2 weeks. Then I will be moving back to the States.
So I won’t be do much, if any weight lifting. I hear that regaining lost muscle mass is quite easy and just takes a bit of time.
Age and stuff:
15 years old, 155lb(70k), 5% body fat as the skin calipers say, but I’m not sure if I believe that. I had my dad measure…7 spot, had him measure the area three times then average it.
Once I get back to the states, I plan to try and raise my 1rep max to 100k(220lb). I have quite a high metabolism because of my age(15) so I’m just about always hungry and must always be eating.
Massive eating says I should be eating about 4500calories a day, but I plan to bump it up to about 5000-5500 calories because of a high metabolism.
What supplements do you recommend? I’m thinking about getting Surge(haven’t tried yet), micronized creatine and protein powder. I will be eating big meals often to try and get all of the carbs in.
I will be using the Waterbury METHOD which is total body training. I completed 3 weeks, making great results. And I plan to try and actually complete it this time.
Any other total body training programs you recommend? I know of Waterbury METHOD and TOTAL-BODY Training.
I will be doing HIIT for 25 minutes and kick boxing training(speedballing, bags, and the whole package) for 30 minutes every other day.
I am worried that the cardio will interfere with my weight gaining, as I am trying to gain a lot of mass, but when I stop doing cardio, I rarely gain fat mass as the skin fold calipers show, I fell sluggish when I run and get tired easily.
If you have any constructive criticism, please do.
When I was checking my 5 rep max about 2.5 months ago, I was able to bench 55kg 5 times. About a month later I had some guy at the gym spot me, I benched 75kg once. Now I can bench 60kg x 3 10 reps easily, I can also bench 60kg x 6 reps 4 sets easily. That is why I think I could bench 85k. May not of been that good of a reason, but it is mine.
