I am getting fatter and my lifts are more or less the same with small incremental progress.

Will be ordering the protein powder soon to start a cycle in June to see if it helps any. At this time point I can only get fatter and see what happens.

Otherwise, I was just considering this afternoon to cut all the way down until I am like 140, get to a skinny physique I like to see in the mirror, then work back up. I think a few here mentioned about dieting early then bulking. I kind of was in the half way point and never saw any definition / vascularity etc.

I'm a marshmallow shog[1].gif

Pay your dues - bust your ass in the gym and kitchen.

These things take time.

A jacked physique nor a 500 pound squat comes over night.

I guess I used the term wrong, I just meant to start taking protein shakes concurrently with my diet.

I had initially put it off for the longest time but someone here was nice enough to suggest something milk and soy free. On that note, in general does double chocolate always taste the best? I was going to try custard flavor.

Charly: At the very beginning I knew it was going to take time. A long time to see any results. Due to some slacking off here and there, would you consider 2 year progress still at the beginning stage?

So, is it normal to take 2 years in order to hit the fundamentals, progress past 135lb lifts? Someone mentioned different intervals like 225lb being the next weight. Would 185lb be marginally past beginners level/signs of progress?

edit:
FWIW I can do 225lb DL easily for rep, but can probably put up 1-2 rep at 185 for squat and bench.

MFP is telling me that the pound of baby back ribs I ate are 1000 kcals. Doesn't seem right at all. Gonna cut intake tonight just in case but still, wtf?

Stopped taking the Yohimbine, you guys were right it's probably a waste until I'm down another 10 lbs or so, gonna save it for then. Back on full EC regimen, loving it. My body's acclimated and my energy levels are optimal, pretty high but not jittery or stressed.

I stick with vanilla Syntha-6 as my go-to, but it's more of a meal replacement because it has a lot more than protein in it, and more cals/carbs/fat than most others. Still, worth it IMO shit tastes delicious. Though I hardly drink whey and don't really see the need when you could just eat delicious meat instead.

How much of those 2 years would you say you've been training AND eating properly?

Also, at your level, the last thing you need is protein powders. You need more calories from whole foods in your diet.

So, Saturday night, my buddy invited me and a couple other buddies to come join him at a little bar for drinks. He was with his fuck buddy, fuck buddies friend and fuck buddies brother. Anyway, fuck buddies whore friend is a personal trainer at golds gym. Well, me and my buddy (also lifting partner) give her some shit about lifting. It was obvious she didn't know shit about shit. I asked if golds finally got bumper weights (i went to that golds years ago) and she was like huh? She responded when we explained what bumper weights are. She says that the dumbbells had rubber coating on them... da fuq bish doesn't know what bumper plates/weights are. Well, then I tell her that is why I don't respect big corporate gym trainers. She is drunk and gets pissed and asks why. I tell her they don't know shit and she responds she had to get certified. Then I start throwing lifting knowledge around and she is dumbfounded as fuck (she is a "strength" trainer). I ask her normal dieting routines she gives her clients and ask her some typical diet routines for bulking/strength. Again, she is dumbfounded as fuck. She gets infuriated and friends fuck buddy joins in and both bishes are crying (is this real life) and tells me I am insulting what she does for a living and she has a son to support (none of which are my faults). "Trainer" whore asks for a cig and storms out saying this is the first time she has had a cig in 6 months. While outside, she calls my lifting buddy an asshole and my friends fuck buddy tries to calm her down by telling her that I don't look like I lift (I had a coat on since it was chilly out).

Oh and she has the audacity while storming out to tell me to write 25 things about my diet and that she will guarantee change it because it is wrong. Gold's gym is doing well I guess.

Toasty, fwiw, in under 4 months I've almost caught you on squat and bench and passed you in deadlift. Granted i have like 20 lb on you, but it indicates a problem with your diet or routine.
post #29468 of 47728
I do not recover that well post-workout and get a lot of DOMS (is this right?)
Protein would help with the recovery and also help me meet my macros.

The calorie portion I think I am meeting the bare minimum of 2k +/- for my weight.
I probably only started eating more 6+ months ago till today. Will just continue until I do not fit all my clothes lol patch[1].gif

I knew this was bound to happen. Congrats!

My last recorded lifts for rep:
265 DL
165 Squat
175 Bench

I cannot keep that consistent though so I don't count that T_T. My weeks fluctuate, which is probably due to my poor diet and/or recovery.

toasty, pretty much everything you've ever posted in this thread suggests that any lack of progress you've made can be attributed to you dicking around in both the gym and the kitchen. Even if you just want that "lean and athletic" look, you still need to eat for it, unless you've got wonder genes. By the sounds of it, you're probably eating both too few calories and too few "building block" calories. I recall a sample diet day from you; too few calories and too little protein. What do you expect but a doughy, skinny-fat physique? You don't need to be Coldsnap and put on layers and layers of fat, but if you want to stop being this frail, but kinda chubby 150-pounder, you need to readdress what your daily menu looks like. But you know all of this already.

Some people suck at lifting Gettoasty. I am one of them, I have to do everything 110% and still don't get as much results as most people. Aren't you a fashionz aesthetic dude anyways, why are you caring about you deadlift/squat/bench 1 rep maxes? Just go on a legit body building routine as far as what you do in the gym and eating. No one outside of my 3 friends in the gym care that I deadlifted 375 x 9 on Monday, If I didn't have some mild obession with being huge I would do something else. Most of the population can’t tell a person lifts unless they have basketball delts stretching through a t-shirt, or they take the t-shirt off to reveal 11% bodyfat.

But to get that body don't I need to lift heavier? I'm still on the SPBR routine.

I am thinking once I can rep 185lb on the bench / squat I will go for volume of repetition rather than weight and start leaning out from there.
post #29472 of 47728
Toasty, I don't fucking get it, how hard is it really to get enough calories in? Down some fucking ice cream, go get a shake from McDonald's every day. Just hit your fucking surplus and get enough protein, and lift heavy, and plate up. This shit isn't rocket science. You don't need whey or anything special. Eating more will help with recovery, so get on it.

Stop worrying about getting fat you're not going to get fat, you need to bulk over then cut down anyways so just do it man.

Not really, just reps reps reps and big volume. I would just workout like a legit bodybuilder focusing on areas that I want to look big.
