    The reason you gained fat is partly because of a "weight gainer". Otherwise I'm guessing it is your diet.....What diet have you been following?. Take a look at your diet journal and total calories....

    eating like crazy is good for a beginner but, what is your diet generally? As back in the day eating like crazy may have helped gain weight for me, it helped me get fat as well. Now my diet is quite refined compared to then, Crazy with clean food...thats better.

    whats your stats though

    Yep.You need to make sure you have the metabolism for those shakes,and i'm guessing your eating habits.Not everyone can handle weight gainers with fast food,just like not everyone can grow from chicken,fish,turkey,and oatmeal only.Well they could,but they'd have a constant temporary gut from being so bloated.

  7. I dont think that you are a hard gainer if you 20%bf. Hard gainers dont put weight on what so ever unless they hoard down masses of food. That clearly is not the case here its seems you over ate with poor quality of food. Which in sense lead to the fat gain. As far as training what does your training resume look like? Give us a little more info about yourself and we can send you in the right direction. Personally, I dont think it would be wise for you to take a hormonal product as it will likely be contributed to more fat gain, with a small amount of muscle gain.

    So thats about 182 pounds. I don't think your 20% bf at that height and weight...Just seems odd.

    Very true,it's common for me to eat fast food once a day,and lots of red meat.A decent amount of salmon and lean pork,but not much chicken,it's usually deep fried half the time.I don't know my bf%,but with a shirt on,at my heaviest,you can't tell if i have abs or not.I also agree with t-bone.You likely aren't 20%,unless it's all gut with chicken legs and noodle arms.(such a funny sight,they always wear shorts and cut up sleaveles shirts)

    Well I would think it would be less based on your height and weight. Its just my guess though. Just seems strange to be over 20% at that height and weight.

    if its done by "hydrostatic underwater weighing" is very accurate. If its just an electronic device that uses a pulse from your body then its not accurate at all. But you can still gauge progress using it regularly. Calipers are also not always as accurate since a larger body can spread the fat out along with other little problems.

    You can get a much better ability to know your bodys potential if you count calories once in a while using "diet tracker" and how high you are above your BMR

    The theory of a hardgainer is that they generally have an abundance of CORTISOL in their body which breaks down muscle and makes weight gain difficult. So if your really 20% at that height i dont think you fit the bill so to speak

  15. I don't think its that strange. that puts him at somewhere between 182-189. at 182, 23% puts him at 140lbs of lean mass. if he's small framed, thats believable. Would put him at a 10% bf at around 155. He says he's a novice as well, so maybe is pretty thin on the muscles.

    Either way, drop more of the bodyfat first. You aren't a "hard gainer" if you got to that bodyfat. a hard gainer would be you at 155-160lbs.

  16. post a pic if you can as well

  17. Yea there no way in hell your ready for m1t... Your bf% is just way to high...Not to mention there are better alternatives!

    I like this.I might start including a cortisol reducer supp on a regular basis.I have never looked into them but i believe retain2 is one right?Any others that are suposively good?Reps to you!!!

    phosphatidyl serine is the new hotshot among cortisol reducers

    its really the best bet. Get yourself lean enough that you can tell when you gain a pound how much of it is muscle and how much is fat by just looking in the mirror, and then worry about what you need to add to gain muscle faster.

    Def go with crea mono.I buy mine for $20.00,181 servings of 100%pure crea mono from vittaimin shoppe,you take 1 serving a day!Theirs nothing wrong with crea mono.Companies just needed to make an excuse to make more money from creatine,so they made ethyl ester,kre-alkalyn,gluconate and many more with a high price tag.

    Could not have said it better....

    Supposedly CEE doesn't need a delivery system, that is not the only difference though I don't know the science of it. Its just my opinion that the newer creatines are more of a gimmick. Mono has been around for years and has a proven and more importantly SAFE track record.

    if i remember correctly. CEE is actually "less fuctional" than regular mono, someone posted a study, and it ended up being a over hype of marketing. Considering that its supposed to be a major improvement in absorbability from MONO but...i also forgot most of the details so...dont quote me on it lol

    Mono is cheap...get it micronised as well. Great stuff
