Right I am going to vent my frustrations here and see what is recommended.
I am fed up of my legs not growing enough - Calorie requirements are in check all clean first off, current body weight is at approx 150-155.
I follow the macrobolic nutrition diet split of 45%c 35%p and 20% f I am eating approx 2800-3000 cals a day at the moment all the essentials eggs, whole milk, brown rice, red meat, chicken, salmon, green veg, oats etc etc My maintenence is around 2200-2400 so I am over that at the moment.
Current best lifts - Squat 2x 120kg [Parrallell] and also 70kgx20 parrallel [my bodyweight on the bar essentially]
My leg routine I follow typically looks like this -
Using Max OT warmup of 1x12, 1x10, 1x6, 1x3, 1x1 typically weights used go Bar/Bar/60kg/80kg/100kg and start my first work set below at 110kg at the moment.
Work sets- 3x4-6, 1x20
Romanian Deadlifts 3x4-6
DB Lunges 3x4-6
Calf Raises Standing 4x25[High reps seems to be the only thing making them grow?]
Calf Raises Seated 4x25
Now I have been thinking of maybe backing off my arms day all together in favour of another leg day a week/cycle to prioritise - is this a good idea? I find it takes me at least 4-5days to be ready to do legs again and also have to have a gap of around 4 days after I deadlift before I squat to avoid lower back issues.
My current split as follows -
HIIT Sprint Intervals/Abs Weighted
It typically takes between 8-10 days before starting this cycle again for me which I find is about right for recovery for me.
The annoying thing is I am training til I can barely walk and using good form/heaviest weight I can manage. My deadlift is now at 140kg which is just over twice my bodyweight so is way ahead now of my squat and its pissing me off!!!!!!
Last legs day I did 110kg x 4, x5, x4 for the 3 sets which is an improvement but still frustrating as hell!
Please help me out guys, I am eating right/in an organised way that I have done for a long time I am training hard - what should I add/change?
