First, how are you measuring your body fat?
Second, what are you doing for direct an work? Yes, some people don’t need direct ab work to have highly visible abs, but if yours aren’t developed enough for your liking (and you legitimately are 7% bf), then I’d add in some direct abdominal work.[/quote]
no , iam not doing any direct ab workouts . i used to be doing and my upper abs were alright . then i was told to stop and i lost what i had . i just checked up with a couple of fat % calculators online .
And Reed , no offence , but its ur wife thats doing it wrong !!! its either that or shes adding more than 2.5 kg each workout !! do the math if u think iam wrong !! its 2.5 increase on every other workout . so for 3 weeks that will be an increase by 12.5 . plus the barbell , so thats 22.5 kg , which is not more than my lift ! and if she id lifting more then she must be increasing more than it is said to ! secondly , i never said that i had been doing stronglifts for a few months !!! read properly !! i said i made that thread a few months ago , not started working out !! and really , man , no need to boast . you’re a grown man , comparing yourself to a kid and iam pretty sure ur forearms arent bigger than my thighs -_-
And its not just chicken . i eat meat 2 meals each day . and for breakfast its eggs , so i get some protein there too . and iam not only eating protein , i eat potatoes and rice and all as well . a bit weak with the veges but not with anything else . and i do eat a lot . well considering how thin i look , i do eat a lot . i eat more than everyone else in my family and they all are way off thin .
and for the guy who said to target 4-6 lbs increase each month . well i’ve been going at it for over a month and havent even put on half , not even quater a pound ! [/quote]
I’m sure his wife is doing it right considering she has made more gains than you and the point of stronglifts is to make gains relatively fast for beginners like yourself. I have done stronglifts many times and made a lot of gains. 16 years old is old enough to be strong man as long as you are doing things right.
How many meals a day do you eat? you say you eat meat with 2 meals a day? what do you eat the rest of the day? you asked for help and the people on here asked you to list out everything you eat to see why you aren’t gaining weight and strength.
you say you eat a lot but its hard to believe if you haven’t even gained 1/2 a pound. try eating every 2 hours a decent sized meal trying to get 6 balanced meals in a day at least, do that for a month and ill be surprised if you don’t gain weight.
