So here’s my quick background:
I’m 6’3" and weigh between 173-175. For the past three months I have been averaging ~4,000 calories per day, yet have not gained a single pound. Prior to the past six months, I competitively ran for 2.5 years and weighed just under 165 for that time. However, once I decided to leave running behind and return to my high school football weight of 190, I began weight-lifting again. I quickly got up to 173 pounds and have totally stalled here. It doesn’t make sense to me that I can be eating app. 4,000 calories a day and not gain weight. I don’t run anymore, besides maybe once or twice a week where I do a 1-2 miles trail run/hike.
I am currently using the starting strength program, yet I have stalled several times at 210 on squats, and 220 on bench. I have always had a relatively strong upper body, and a relatively weak lower body. What gives? How can I bust through this plateau of no weight gain and stalling on squat and bench?
I have posted a video of my squat form. It was tough for me to get a quality video because of the small dimensions of my home gym, but I think I’ll still be able to get some critique from the well-versed here on this forum. What do you guys think? Don’t hold back on the criticism.
