I don't think I could eat 3,750 kcal for more than 1 day
Good luck man!!!
This seems like a silly question but what do you think about doing some cario after lifting, when you're trying to bulk up? I've been lifting heavy, doing a 5x5 workout program and making gains all around but I keep shedding weight. I am taking in about 4000 calories a day (give or take a few hundred). Been taking in 5g of creatine for the last 2 weeks and I've lost another 1lb in the last 2 weeks (down 8lbs in 3 months). The only thing I can think of that's making me burn the calories and shed the weight is basketball. I lift every mon, wed, friday night, and then play ball right after for about an hour or two (i usually just go after the gym telling myself ill shoot for a few minutes to loosen up, but end up playing pick up games for a few hours).
Could basketball for 1-2hrs a day really be setting me back like this?
Squat days are the worst but I push through till I have to throw up, then I head home. On other days, I just play defense. Since I can't shoot from lifting, I end up playing defense like it's a championship game. I'm that guy at the park hah.
But maybe that's the answer... maybe I need to be lifting to the point where basketball or any other activity is just out of the question.
