Any suggestions on diet and keeping protein highest with mild-to-med carb and fat.
Definitely will focus more on compound exercises. I know I need to add dips.
Compound movements are awesome for size/strength......Strenght plays a huge part in building up. I don't see any bodybuilders or NFL players working out light!!
1600 calories seem way to low to me...u have to feed your body enough calories so it can work at an optimal level. I would start at maybe 2200-2500 especially if your working out alot .
Yes, 2200 roughly is what I need to eat to maintain body weight. But, I was told by quite a few people that it may be better for me to burn a bit of the abdominal fat, and fat in general, before trying to bulk.
So, you can see my confusion. I am wanting to get a little more abdomial definition, but I do want to eventually build arms and legs.
I would guess u would need about 3000 with all the working out u do to maintain
Let's get an answer for this question by some knowledge heads....
Let's say a person is skinny fat, pudgy, chubby what ever, should he be eating in excess to gain muscle or cutting back cals?
depends. is it summer or winter? simple if you ask me. if its winter, clean bulk with SOME cardio in there. if its spring/summer, cut but stay with compound movements in the gym just change diet, high BCAA intake and more cardio
OP, pull ups will explode your arms. try to aim around 10 rep area. if that means they are weighted pull ups, then do so
