Feel like I have maxed my body size

  1. Feel like I have maxed my body size


    Have changed my diet, do new workouts constantly, increased intensity, load on protein through food daily plus a shake, and I keep getting stronger but I can't gain weight and build size. It's pissing me off and suggestions would help immensely. And don't bother with offering steroids, I'm a natural builder.


  2. Eat

    A lot

    Repeat

  3. Age, stats, experience?

    Eat for the weight you want. Majority of times people think they eat enough but are. Way under.
    If you want to weigh 200 lbs you gotta eat like your 200 lbs
    Don't quote me but usually 20-22 cals per lb of bodyweight will be a decent bulk.
    Also the more cardio youdo the more food you'll need

  5. U won't gain weight eating just protein (hopefully u know that)

    If u over train (Aka under recover) you won't grow or gain weight

    If u do too much cardio, you will gain minimal weight.

    Slowly add carbs and you will easily gain clean pounds, I added carbs back after being a low carber / carb cycler for years, and I gained 10 pounds comfortably and cleanly, actually lost BF over a 3 month period without ph or steroids..

  12. Yeah, I've heard of guys having to put down retard amounts of food to gain or even simply maintain weight. I saw what Dusty's first phase cutting diet looked like, and it was like 7-8k calories, lol.

    I'm sure he did, but you also gotta understand that when powerlifters use the word lean they're using it in the lay/clinical sense (20% bf or sub), not in the bodybuilder sense (sub 14%).

    Saw the link and thought to myself, 'it's gonna be that story with the extra large pizza and the bottle of oil.' Sure 'nuff.

    Exactly. All my mma/bj/crossfit/bodybuilder type friends say I'm fat. But when I'm in the office with lay people they all comment on how "jacked" I am. I do not have visible abs and do not really care. Rippetoe once said a six pack is useless on a skinny guy.

  22. But also to eat his or her own. Some people just wanna be 150 lbs with abzzz

    It's like magic.

  24. unless you're lactose intolerant then its like chemical warfare

  25. Here's something I do: I work at a desk job so I will cook up 16 oz of steak and stir that into 4 cans of chunky soup. I put this in a giant tupperware and slowly work at it over the course of the workday. I call it my slop bucket.

    Good idea, I always hate how the soups have little protein.
