    Between workouts?


    I started working out again a couple weeks ago; my workout partner is showing alot of strength gains...im not. Since we're doing the same workouts is there anything I could be doing wrong on off days and between workouts?
    Thanks,
    Axe

    Are you getting at least 8 hours of sleep? Are you getting at least 1 gram of protein per lb of bodyweight and 3 grams of carbs (mainly complex) per lb of weight? Your fat intake should be derived mainly from mono and polyunsaturated fats. Just a few things to think about...

    there are so many things that could make the two of you gain size and strength differently.... genetics, diet, body type, and also have you been working out longer than your training partner? usually the first few months of working out you tend to gain strength very quickly. rest is a big part to or maybe he's taking some kind of supplements or roids and just not tellling you????

    It isn't abnormal to work out with someone who is progressing faster or slower than you. Like the others said it could be genetics, or he could be doing somethings better outside of the gym.

    Even if it is genetics, they aren't everything. Do better with your nutrition and recovery, and see what happens
