    That's a fast gain, people normally aim for 1-2 pounds per month. You will have gained a lot of fat but at least you've gained strength and you will have gained some muscle too.

    I find I generally perform better and can lift heavier with 3 days rest between body parts, rather than 2 days rest.

    I train back, chest/shoulders and legs on different days so I will workout...

    Whenever I have takeout I save the plastic containers, and I now have a cupboard full. They come in useful for refrigerating, freezing and carrying food in (things like meat, rice, beans, fruit, etc)...

    I work around injuries. If I took time off I'd never go back. When I injured my knee I took over a month off from doing legs and it was no different. Sometimes I think continuing is better than doing...

    This made me lol, but it's good advice. I think there's a saying, something like, "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing, and expecting different results"

    The problem is, the calories on foods are just a guide, and averages themselves.

    When they make your pizza, who's to say they don't drizzle a bit of extra oil over it, or perhaps a bit less.

    Yup, in the real world people don't care about biceps and everyone wants to lose weight. Tell people you're trying to gain weight and they think you're crazy

    Thanks Alex, I have indeed been increasing the peanut butter intake, and also things like adding coca powder to my whey shakes, etc. I definitely think I need to increase calories some more, which...

    Hi all,

    Backstory - cut down to 160 pounds, then bulked to 180 pounds. Lockdown came and I've been carefully tracking calories and eating at maintenance and stayed in the region of 179 - 181...

    Can't wait for the gym to reopen. With zero equipment at home the lengths I've gone to try and maintain you wouldn't believe. Including lifting heavy items out and about in the rain, using pull up...

    Why run in the first place? And why grab the taser? If he'd have been able to grab the cop's gun he probably would have, and most likely tried to use it too.

    If the only thing he did was run then...

    Agreed - after tasering someone, even if you didn't steal their gun, you could stamp on their head and kill or seriously injure them.

    I'm sorry, but you resist arrest, wrestle with the cops, steal...

    Are you weighing and tracking your calories accurately, or guestimating?

    Are you weighing yourself every day and calculating a rolling 7 day average?

    I think measuring your waist is good,...

    Yeah the OP is lean, I don't think what he ate that day will have done any harm tbh.

    When I was cutting I would have the occasional day every month or so where I'd go a bit nuts. Come to think of...

    My belief with this kind of thing is that even if there is a difference, it's going to be so negligible you would never notice. I don't believe for a moment someone eating 20 minutes after their...

    Figure out how many calories you need in a day for your goal.

    Eat 0.7 and 0.4 minimum. Whatever calories you have left, eat what you want.
