Doing some research, and apparently I'm screwed.
It doesn't appear you can get a blood test in NY without being under a physician's care.
Even if I went to a doctor, my guess is between the visit and the testing, it's going to cost a boatload of money without insurance. And then there is the issue of admitting to illicit drug use.

You sure you are being honest with yourself about your diet? I don't know of anyone outside of an upper level athlete in the middle of training that would be losing weight on 5k calories a day.

If you need 6k, plus gear to gain weight, you truly are an anomaly.

In my experiences high or low e2, testosterone doesn't put the weight on like drol or deca. You may be expecting too much (as bad as it sounds ). You've gotta keep in mind anadrol and superdrol were both designed for wasting disease or whatever it's called to add weight to patients. Test is more hormonal replacement

Buy a twin family pack of Nutella and Nilla Waffers (my bulking secret).
Report back with weight gain
*Disclaimer* You will be bloated as fuk
04-03-2013, 09:52 AM
The main ingredients in Nutella and Nilla wafers is sugar. Not only is that a terrible bulking secret, but not effective in any manner that someone would want to be using to gain weight.
...and being bloated is not a good side
04-03-2013, 04:20 PM
Wow, itd be very hard to believe that your eating 5 thousand cals and not gaining.
I know alot of guys who claim they eat like this but when it comes down to it..theyre not, do you measure and weigh all your food and count calories? Be 100% honest, also what are you eating? Stick to foods that will actually have an anabolic effect...meats...whole grains...healthy fats...and stay away from sugar...nilla wafers and nutella is not a bulking secret its a get fat secret, also...be consistent with your meals...eat clean and often. You can be on all the gear you want but lets not forget the most important part of this sport...diet. and then the second most important part...training. maybe you need to have somebody with a bit more experience take a look at your training routine. What kind of split are you on?
04-03-2013, 05:08 PM
Yeah that many calories doesn't sound right, are you extremely active or something? In my experience, until I hit about 175 I can gain weight at about 3500 calories, then I have to jump up to 4k to break 180 but also I am pretty sedentary(video game nerd/lifter). Idk if you already do this or not but also I ALWAYS round down calories when bulking, and round up when cutting if I am unsure about something.
04-03-2013, 05:25 PM
I don't have a desk job; I'm on my feet all day.
Yes I'm certain it's 5K.
I eat eggs, oatmeal, tuna sandwiches with cheese, whole milk, chicken, V8 (because I don't eat veggies), and take shots of olive oil.
That is where all my calories come from.
No I don't weigh food; I go by the nutrition information on the lable.

If OP is burning through calories like there's no tomorrow, then there's no reason for him not to throw in some junk food like Nutella. Sugary foods shouldn't be a staple but he certainly doesn't need to avoid them, and the great thing about Nutella is it has fat. I'd leave out the Nilla wafers, but when bulking I do enjoy some Nutella spread on an Ezekiel English muffin a few times a week; breaks up the monotony of meat and eggs and rice. My wife also makes pancakes with Nutella and they're ****ing awesome, but that's a cheat meal for me. As long as his protein intake is where it needs to be, he can do what he needs to do to push his calorie threshold.

Chest day is always heavy bench and incline work, back day is VERY heavy deadlifts. I also do military press for shoulders.
I like the idea of a second leg day.
Oh I just like the burn in my forearms, can't explain it.

Monday: Standing military press 4 x 8, seated dumbell press 4 x 8, lateral raises 4 x 12, and yes wrist curls
Wednesday: Flat bench 4 x 8, incline bench 4 x 8, incline dumbell press 4 x 8, flys 4 x 12
Friday: Deadlift 4 x 6, pullups 4 x 10, bent over rows 4 x 10, any variation of biceps curls...
Sunday: Squat 10 sets x 6, extensions 3 x 10, lunges 4 x 10. Don't train calves or hamstrings even though I should.

Going back to the diet, you really don't look like you have the carb load you should for gaining weight. I'm currently on a bulk with the usual 40/30/30 carb/protein/fat plan and usually pack on about 5-6lbs a month and I'm not on any cycle. I have a lot of the guys I train with do the same and they never have an issue putting the weight on. Then to maintain, I cut the carbs and up the fats.
There are two guys that just have a sky high metabolism and they have upped to a 50/30/20 to get the weight on.

I'm at a loss, brotha. If you are already getting 300-500 grams of calories in carbs, then that should be plenty. Everything I have known to work for the last 20+ years is not working for you.
Maybe you do need to eat nilla wafers. haha
04-03-2013, 09:26 PM
Then again I know my body is strange considering how much I can eat and not gain.
It also explains why my strenght and endurance is through the roof on test, but with little weight gain.
I really looking forward to Deca or Tren, though I know diet is still a top priority with or without gear.
04-04-2013, 02:27 AM
Bro not trying to sound like a dick but without weighing food and tracking your calories you don't really know what your consuming. going of the packet is far from accurate. 5000 calories is a lot and a 240lb bodybuilder would gain off that amount of food. I don't think your being honest with yourself or us about the amount of food you eat.
04-04-2013, 02:44 AM
Myfitnesspal app log what u eat take a screen shot post it up Im sure wed all like to see what ur eating bro.

Why is everyone commenting on forearms? It's just wrist curls, really quick exercise to do and it's not gonna hurt him.
Secondly I think a second leg day sounds kind of extreme. I know I hit legs hard enough each week that they are sore all week. But also I do 4-6 reps heavy for most exercises, and sometimes on the big 3 I'll even do 1-3 rep heavy sets so it's pretty taxing. Not to mention that you hit hams pretty hard when you deadlift, and quads a little as well. Throw in cleans on shoulder day and there's all the extra legwork you should need.

If you know you are consuming 5k calories and it really isn't working for you for some reason, see if 6k makes a difference by pushing you over. You would be one of the only people I know that didn't gain on 5k, but you are this far and it wouldn't hurt to try. Throw in an extra shake and you have your 1k down in about 5 min.
2 1/2 cup milk (whole or 2%)- 375 cal
2 scoop protein- approx 300 cal
2 greek yogurt (vanilla is good)- 240 cal
1 tbsp pb 120 cal
1035 cal, about 100gr protein, 35g fat
I'd be substituting some of the protein and fats in my earlier meals with pastas and whole grains to get in the additional carbs.
As far as the comment by another poster about a second leg day being "extreme"- that is a ridiculous notion. There is nothing extreme about a second leg day per week and it a proven method of increasing the rate of adding mass. The idea is to have a heavy day in the low range to build power and strength and a higher rep day to concentrate on size. Plus, it has the added benefit of boosting his appetite if he is truly going to be upping his caloric intake.
Again, this is all taking the assumption that his diet is honest, which we need to take his word on.

sounds like you got everything in check man. everyone is different.. on 5000 cals id def be gaining weight but if i were on gear as well id hope that id be gaining purely muscle and losing body fat...
