    I was probably eating 1500 calories most days, which could even be 3000 or more under maintenance considering the amount of activity. Maybe 50g protein on a good day. I will try drinking loads of water but i was taking on a good 2-3 litres a day anyway, i would be surprised if half an inch of arms came back from water. Hated every minute of it.

    173 now, 2 weeks into what could be considered a "clean (and lazy) bulk"

    Up to repping 250 on bench (a personal best for me) and was able to squat 230 for 5 reps today which is a milestone given my injury, though my hip flexors still are extremely painful after it.

    Really want to get to 190 lbs and stay there in my lifetime. 3 years ago (and the rest of my life) I was 150 lbs so I hope I can hold onto it.

    My imaginations of weight are skewed by my frame size so 5'9 190 sounds really big to me. Have you ever done the online frame calculations, etc, that suggest your max muscle weight? IIRC, I did a couple of them and mine came out to 168ish at 5'9 but I have an extremely small frame.

    I'd say that's probably likely. Not too cynical.

    Doesn't hurt while I'm doing it- hurts afterward on the outside of my hip

    Eason, good work brother! It's going to be hard to get to a lean 190 without being able to do heavy squats. Hopefully you're able to do some other exercises that can somewhat compensate.

    Estimate your maintenance calories using an online calculator or shell out the cash for an actual calorie tracker...then eat less than that.

    Buy a food scale. It's pointless to even try losing weight without one.

    Ever notice how many a gym bro...

    ... Check their abs after every set of anything? Guy behind me doing a machine assisted row, stands up and pulls up his shirt after every set.
