    Getting big


    i am 6' 175lbs. i have been lifting weights for 7 years off and on. im 23 years old. the last 4 months i have taken no xplode and cell mass and some weeks i gained good size and others nothing at all. i dont keep track of calories or reps and sets, just work out.

    lol. post your work out routine. change your diet up. your calorie intake is WAY to small. 4:30 n.o explode...? wheres your breakfast meal. my breakfast consist of 5 egg whites, 6 slices of cut up turkey or 8 oz lean chicken, 2 slices of whole wheat bread and 3 tbsp of peanut butter and a banana. your diet looks like your taking small snacks.

    Kind of light on your back. When you consider the percentage of muscle and the potential for growth you are neglecting an essential part.

    I am 6 feet and about 180. I was 150 at the beginning of March. My goal is to be around 195-205.

    I think you would get better workouts if you got a good meal in first thing in the morning, at least some carbs.


    I found that the best exercises for putting on mass are squats and deadlifts. They are hard lifts for my body type but my body responds very well them.

    For me, the easy part is hitting the gym. The hard part is taking in all the calories. Try to eat a lot of pastas, brown rice, oatmeal for carbs and get in at least 300 grams of protein a day.

    Supplements are exactly what the word means. Meant to supplement a good diet. They won't do much if you aren't getting in the proper nutrients. Creatine, Amino Acids, and good multi vitamin is a good start. There are so many other supps out there that you are just gonna have to see what works for you, and your wallet.

    [QUOTE=Onelite;928097]i dont keep track of calories or reps and sets, just work out./QUOTE]

    That is the problem right there. You need to start keeping track of what you eat. You can do so easily online at fitday.com. Your total calories and your macro breakdown (i.e. how many carbs, fats, and protein) will have THE BIGGEST impact on how much you gain.

    Just looking at your current diet, I would say:

    5:30 - 2 eggs? How about 6-8 to get enough protein. And hash browns may not be best carb source.

    8:00 - protein bars aren't best source of nutrition, and one 20g bar definitely isn't sufficient.

    10 & 12 - ok assuming you have A LOT of turkey on there

    2 & 4 - don't depend on shakes & bars... there's no carbs in a protein shake and not a lot in most bars. If you want to gain you need carbs.

    Generally you want to be eating 5-7 meals/day, with each meal having 30-50g protein. Depending on your metabolism and your goals most meals (except maybe the last) should have from 30-50g carbs up to 100+. Limit unhealthy fats (saturated), and emphasize healthy fats.
