Exercise more and eat less calorically dense food.

Yeah, you're 4" taller than me so you have a much higher TDEE. I wish I hadn't done all that crash dieting as a kid, otherwise I might just be of a normal height.

No, it is most likely not unless you have dysfunctional metabolism or are completely inactive.

Mixed up my BMR and my TDEE, sorry! My TDEE is around 1800.

Did you figure this out from a journal where you measured macros or some website calculator?

Do you ever leave the couch?

I've been working out long enough to get a general sense of what my body responds well to, and to know what exercises to use. I just really don't think my pecs respond very well by genetics but I want to push through it for aesthetics. I've been spending more time on my upper pecs and I'm just beginning to see more of a rounded appearance. Also, I've mostly used dumbbells and cables for pecs. Two days ago I used machines, which a lot of people discourage because they don't work out "stabilizer muscles" but I really feel sore.

I guess my only conclusion at this point is to give more attention to incline and decline, and in general just really wear myself out. Other than what I think my genetics are, in general I've been doing mostly the same exercises that have become routine, not concentrating on upper pecs as much as I should, and have not made much progress as far as adding more weight. I just feel more pressure to do so now because my shoulder are larger, and my stomach is pretty flat now, so I need some pecs to balance it all out. I have made progress, I just feel like it's been lagging behind progress in other places.

EDIT: One more thought. If these machines keep leaving me feeling sore I'm going to use them more often. One thing I have noticed is that I have decent biceps despite not doing any exercises specifically targeting them. I suspect when I do cable flys that I bare some of the load with my biceps instead of my pecs, so perhaps when I increase weight on cable flys I just take on a majority of that extra weight with my biceps when I make that fly movement. My biceps just seem too big to not be working them out specifically so this must be going on.

Also on an unrelated note, I got into the habit of making protein shakes with almond milk. No specific reason, just like the favor and the fact that it lasts longer without getting that sour smell like milk, but damn the calorie to protein ratio is horrible compared to skim milk. I'm just going to buy skim from now on.

Anyone have any opinion on this:

If you are training for hypertrophy do the exercises you feel the most for high reps, multiple times a week. Don't worry about bench #s

Website. I'm really new to health/fitness.

1800 TDEE is incredibly low at 5'4'' unless you are completely sedentary or morbidly obese.

Lightly active, 108lbs. I should definitely exercise more.
post #56967 of 57260

Holy shit, you weigh 108?


Just for clarification, you're a dude right?

Yeah. 108 for 5'4" is still a healthy BMI if I recall correctly.

You need to eat and squat for around 5 years before you worry about cutting.

If there was ever a prime candidate for GOMAD, you're it.
