Iím a 30yrs old, 6í2 and been doing gym 3 days a week since 2003.
When I started I was 106kg or 233lb of mostly fat with crappy diet and now Iím 75kg or 165lb with pretty dam good diet and mostly muscle, not from the fact Iím huge but that Iíve just got rid of lots and lots of fat.
The muscle I have is rock hard and you could smash dinner plates off me but they arenít getting bigger. The main reason is diet and restricted cals but the really frustrating thing is when I up my cals (decent food raw salmon, tuna, rice all that sort of stuff) I seem to put on 1kg of muscle to every 10kg of fat.
Iím sure this look is fine for some but Id rather greyhound muscles rippling under the skin look then the massive arms, massive chest, floppy beer gut bloated biker who eats protein shakes all day and hates cardio look. Also I hate puffy bubblegum muscles.
So here is my question, I want to do a P plex M Drol bridge, I see lots of guys do this and seem really happy but when I see their before and after its normally some pudgy guy in the mirror curling what looks like a nice size bicep but with 3 tones of hog fat flapping under it.
If you see an obese middle age woman curling her arm at the buffet to cram in other good portion of food you will notice she also has massive biceps.
They say take the pills, eat 5000 cals plus and you will put on the weight, but to be fair, any moron can tell if you break even in weight eating 2000 cals a day doing gym 3 days a week, then without taking anything and doing the same with 5000cals your going to stack on ****loads of weight.
Thatís 21í000 extra cals a week you werenít getting before and it would seem logical the majority of that weight is going to be chupper chup fatty boom bar flappy tit weight not muscles of stone weight.
So I guess my question is are the results these people getting skewed because when they look in the mirror they see something they want to see but most of the gained weight is water and fat?
All report big gains in the amount they can lift but to be fair when I was chubby or over eat I also can lift 10% to 15% more then when Iím lean as hell.
So, If I where to do a P Plex M Drol bridge, eat 5000 cals of good food how much of the weight is going to be muscle and how much water and fat.
Has anybody done this bridge and also done skin folds test and decent body fat ratio measurements before and after?
Sorry for sounding like an arrogant ******* but just trying to sort the wood from the trees.
