I've been doing the anthony ellis program for over 3 months now, but I don't seem to have put much weight on. I put on a few pounds on fat when I first started probably due to my body not being used to the extra calories and I've toned up but haven't really any bulk on. I lift weights 3x a week and it's broken down into chest,shoulders,triceps on one session, legs on the second session and back and bicep on the 3rd session. All the exercises are 4 sets and a burnout set.
I've have been eating 6 meals a day, usually a protein shake and banana/nuts or oats for the 1st, chicken sandwich for the 2nd, protein shake and banana/nuts for the 3rd, lean beef, vegatables and rice for the 4th, fish, toast and fruit for the 5th and a tub of cottage cheese just before bed.
How much rest should I get ? I find it difficult to get more than 8 hours sleep and my schedule doesn't really permit than the weekend's.
Has anyone any ideas ?
