Hi, I would really appreciate any advice you girls can give me. I have been lifting weights for approx 5 years and have made some gains in this time but a great physique still alludes me. I have quite alot of muscle mass in my lower body but I find it difficult to gain mass on my upper body primarily my shoulders. I am 5ft 6in and 109 lbs, so I am pretty slim with a bodyfat percentage of 14 holding all my bodyfat in my thighs.
I eat really well using whey protein and weight gainer in addtion to my meals, I eat 7 times a day. I eat approximately 2000 kcals a day in the ratios 40% protein, 40% carbs and 20% protein. My workout schedule is as follows:
Mon chest & triceps & abs then 20 mins CV
Wed back & biceps then 20 mins CV
Fri shoulders & abs then 20 mins CV
sat legs & abs
I do all my workouts in an hour or under.
Really my question is am I eating enough? I feel I eat all day. But I recently logged on to Fitday and entered in my stats and what activities I do in a day, (I walk a fair bit to the station and the office) and it says I should eat 2262 kcals a day. I find that eating 2000 is alot. Also I find when I eat more carbs I add fat, so I don't want to add fat especially as I am going on holiday on the 1st May. But I would really like to add some weight to my shoulders and back as they are a bit bony. Help what should I do, should I add more calories..
Thanks for reading this post and would welcome any feedback
