    Healthy amount of cardio, tanning, sauna can help shed out the water...but you need to gain the glycogen weight too. Glycogen will help a lot in sarcoplasmic hypertrophy sets, and in those taxing high repetition exercises needed to build muscle (well you do need myofibrillar hypertrophy too, but it's part of it).

    If you really want to go Keto or "Low carb" style, every 5-7 days I would say, depending on how much you are taxing the glycogen reserves.

    Found this article on Bodybuilding.com.. thoughts?


    I found an article on hypertrophy training & it says that you should only work out 3 times per week...
    Working out only 3x a week doesn't sound like enough.. I am used to training 6 to 7 days a week. However, it wouldn't surprise me if I overtrain.. currently I am following Sandi Griffins plan which consists of training 7 days a week.. she's pretty hardcore. I tried posting the link to her work out, but it won't let me because I don't have enough posts (stupid). But she does 4 sets of 3-5 exercises per body part and her training sessions are 7 days a week....





    Thoughts?

    That could also be why you aren't growing 7 days a week means no rest. Rest means muscle growth. The 10x10 you into work out 3 days but you beat your body to the point that you need to rest.

    Rest, overtraining and workout volume are terms that are particularly misunderstood sometimes. The problem is the volume some people handle 6-7 days a week, the neglect for worrying about TUT, and the lack of knowledge in Muscle Fiber type and the difference between Sarcoplasmic and Myofibrillar Hypertrophy.

    Caloric Surplus + Rest = Growth actually...rest all you want, if you are not on a surplus (or AAS haha) you just won't grow .

    I really like the thought of staying in the 3-5 rep range. I love going heavy! If I am only doing 3-5 reps, I can majorly up my weights on everything I do. Great info, thank you!

    Low reps does not automatically build up to mass, it will build strength...and a stronger muscle can become a bigger muscle. Do not confuse strength testing with strength growing, even worse...with mass gaining.

    High repetition work has it's place in mass gaining.

    I was also seeing on bodybuilder.com people suggesting this ratio as well:
    Protein: 1.59g/bodyweight
    Carbs: 1.75g/bodyweight
    Fats: .33g/bodyweight

    Thoughts?

    No...just no lol...I posted you the essential levels that are ideal even for natural bodybuilders. You should NOT have low fats honestly...and more than 1g/lb of bodyweight is pointless unless you are on a heavy AAS c*cktail.

    At least you have a place like this to come to I was steered the wrong way a few years ago and did my first and only AAS cycle.

    The best advice is to become a sponge and listen to guys like cel.

    I regard Rodja, mr.cooper69 , nattydisaster, Zir ReD and jbryan101 as the most important and knowledgeable beings in this forum. All I know I learned from them...they are amazingly caring and well educated people that, like me, love helping other fellow lifters reach their goals.

    Very possible she just feels she is "skinny fat" as they call it. 17% is far from fat even if you were 4'10 at 110lbs! But your BF% is is within more than healthy range for your age, height, and total weight.

    I wouldn't take anavar in hopes of it helping you to "bulk". NO

    Either way...
    I highly agree with the first response to your post. First, learn more about your body and what direction you need to take prior to adding supplements (natural or otherwise) and then educate yourself on what might work for your goals and then start from there.
