    I seem to recall I went to maintenance for a week or 2, then increased mine by 200 every 2 weeks I think. Weight gain was very slow initially

    Unfortunately I'm unable to reveal how I came up with my screen name, because not only would it make very little sense, but it would also reveal my true identity

    Why not just have a banana or something half an hour before working out?

    Today my pre-workout was a cup of coffee and a couple of Malteser chocolates. I don't think it has to be complicated.

    1. Yes I love what I do. When you love what you do, it doesn't feel like work.

    2. I'm satisfied with my salary. I'd like more - I don't know anyone that wouldn't. However I'm older now and as much...

    I don't mean to be a smart ass, but if you struggle to gain weight, isn't the solution just to eat more? Or eat higher calorie foods (or both).

    Yes, I find lying across the bench allows me to drop my hips and get a better stretch in the chest, and when I lift the weight I focus on squeezing the chest. I know some people swear the pullover...

    Since starting on a bulk 9 months ago my weight gain has been kind of weird. Whereas when cutting I would lose 1 pound per week like clockwork, when bulking I have gained 2 pounds, lost 2 pounds,...

    The problem is, not a great deal is achieved in 1-2 weeks (whether cutting or bulking), so I think switching from one to the other frequently is a waste of time.

    It reminds me of the warrior diet,...

    OP, that area of the chest is also a weak spot for me. I've been doing dumbbell pullovers and cable flys from bottom up to my head (glad to see these recommended by Garage Rat).

    I've also been...

    Occasionally I run upstairs for a poo. If someone is already in the bathroom then I might pace up and down the hall for 5 minutes. That's about it.

    Sounds like DOMS in your spinal erectors. I'm not an expert on hernias but would have thought that would be a pain in your abdomen or groin, rather than lower back.

    I'm not as good at judging female physiques compared to male, but I would say all 4 look like they could be achieved naturally, with #2 having very good angles, lighting and editing.

    Personally I think as a minimum you need a bench and some form of squat rack. I imagine you could get a pull up bar that fits into a doorway or such like.

    When I used to train in my teens I had a...

    I eat 4 eggs for lunch every few days.

    At one time I ate up to 10 eggs a day. I had blood work done and my cholesterol levels were fine. I was 10 years younger though.

    For what it's worth, 5...

    IF won't cause you to lose body fat, burning more calories than you consume will do that. You could eat those calories all in one go, or spread out throughout the day, the result will be much the...

    Yes, not only that, but I've just eaten a bowl of blackberries at 32 calories, with some fat free yoghurt at 72 calories. If you ate that and nothing else each day, you would die of starvation. As we...

    The problem with a cheat "day" is the amount of damage you could inflict. I can happily eat 3k calories in a single meal if it's made up of all the wrong foods. Multiply that by 3 meals in a day and...
