Alrite my names Dave and im 25, been training for bout 2-3 yrs and my gains have been shit.
No gains aint cutting it, Im doing courses in PT now, I want to look the part and know what I am doing.
I aint ever gonna quit, I got too much discpline yadda yadda yadda, but im just getting
pissed off that with all the effort i feel im putting in and yet its like its all for
fuckin nothin. I eat good/clean/big (ill post diet further down) might not be the best diet but should surely be enough to get me on my way......I go to the gym every time i set out to, I make sure i get at least 8hrs + sleep.
I basically work 8hrs eating all fuckin day, straight from work to the gym, then get home dinner, prep shit for next day then eat some more then sleep 24/7. like im sure alot of you all do, but i aint seen the improvements/gains whatever you call it that i feel i deserve.
Damn this is turning in to one big whine....SHIT.
My goals, well i used to just want to get HUGE. now i just wanna look like i actually work out, bigger chest/back/shoulders and legs thats all i want. Like i said i know i got the discipline, if i was told exactly 'look eat this and do this' i would do it to a t... so im here for some advice.
First off i aint updated my bio for a while so before you go nuts and OMFG your 6'4 and only weigh 200lbs eat some fucking food, Im now about 240 solid fat baby, nah not all fat....but seriously more fat that i want
Ive been round the block when it comes to routines, all the usuals WS4SB and Starting Strength, SS was good for a while (like half a yr) but then all the squatting was killin my knees so i backed off, my knees aint the strongest but my form sucks all types of balls.
Heres my current DIET and WORKOUT feel free to rip me shreds and all that.
