Well I guess what I am saying is without using some sort of whey protein or something of that nature, what should I focus on adding to my diet to make what I do in the weightroom more efficent IE: what foods increase protein synthesis. basically I wanna get bigger without gaining alot of weight.
Well this is just me…You weight 150? are you ripped? Scared to lose your abs? something you could do is gain weight…then cut to 160 or 155…and You’ll be bigger but you have to gain mass.
In bodybuilding competitions…when some bodybuilders gain weight and they’re about 5% bf…and then they cut to 5% body fat again, they’re about 3-6 pounds heavier…and those 3 to 6 pounds is HUGE difference at that level…but still your question does not make sense.
My suggestion to you is…have a lot of protein. PROTEIN PROTEIN. Have a protein shake RIGHT before you go to bed. Like if you go to bed at 11:00 drink it at 10:50. plus, you shouldnt be pround of 150 pounds at your frame-im not trying to flame you…just someone had to say it. Do power cleans and front squats if your a kicker. Use bands and plate slides…go read Dave Tate’s articles the “toolbox” ones.
Overall caloric intake is more important than someone’s intake of protein alone. To someone as turned around as the guy who started this thread, telling him to focus in on protein like that is a mistake. If someone doesn’t even understand how to eat enough to make gains…or that they should even be making gains at all, why would you tell them they need to just focus in on protein? As a beginner I grew just fine without access to ANY protein supplements. Why? Because I was eating enough food to gain weight.
