Hey there everyone. I've had a fair amount of trouble gaining muscle. At the moment I am averaging 75kg (about 170 pounds I think). I used to be 70kg and it has taken nearly a year of training to get only 5kg. Im heading off to the Army in may 2014 and was hoping to get to 80kg before I left. Im in the gym monday, Wednesday, and Friday for 2 hours a piece. And do Cardio on Tuesday and Thursday, coupled with moi tie (still cant remember how to spell it) on Saturday mornings. I have protein shakes and plenty of eggs and steak but cant seem to put it on. Any advice would be appreciated.
It could b ur training program needs a overhaul but if ur body is losing muscle thn ur probably in wats called a catabolic stage which means ur body is stripping nutrients tht it needs frm th very place u dnt want it to..which means even though u thnk ur getting enough food intake plain and simple ur not try increasing ur protien and also buy an amino acid supplement to help ur body out and pull u out of a catabolic state
Could you give insight in how you train? What is it you do in the gym?
