No. What's annoying is manlets that say that it's hard to gain weight by eating unseasoned chicken breast.
No. Fucking. Shit.
Stop eating chicken breast and eat more cookie dough. Or you know anything else in between that range of what's perceived to be "healthy" and "unhealthy" food.
Yea, I'm eating about 100g of protein powder a day as it is. I eat the same thing every day, so this is what my diet looks like, maybe some people can find extra ways for some good cals. So I always have these structured meals and throughout the day I'll snack a bit on peanuts, a slice of pizza, maybe an extra meal if it's free or out with friends, or candy from friends. When I start to cut I will cushion carbs more strongly around workouts.
Breakfast - 5-6 eggs, 1 cup oatmeal with berries, coffee
Intra workout - 45g protein, 130g carbs
Post workout - Either Macaronnie and Cheese with a can of tunafish, so 100g carbs 45g protein and 11g fat. Or homemade tacos which equals about the same macros.
Dinner - Steak / chicken and potatoes and a green. Usually have desert like ice cream
Before bed - 45g casein prot and a glass of milk
So what I'm seeing if that you're complaining about not being able to gain weight and your daily breakdown of food is pretty much:
Breakfast - barely a meal, let's call it a big snack
Intra workout - a drink
Post workout - a small smeal
Dinner - a meal
Before bed - a drink
I could understand it for the cardiovascular benefit. Maybe a mile or two a couple times per week. That certainly does not constitute two days of cardio though. That lets me pound another 50g carbs for the day too.
Yeah, I was confused by that as well.
Doing 10-15 mins of cardio pre workout on days when you're not lifting legs should be plenty if you're just trying to stay in decent cardiovascular shape, no?
I mean, run 2 miles 2-3x a week and call it a day? I'm hoping to start working that stuff in 1-2x a week.
Side note: When you guys are bulking, how many calories do you like to go over by? Do you like to keep close to a 400-500 calorie surplus? i.e. gaining about 1lb per week. Or more?
