Hey everyone, looking for some help here! I'm looking to increase the big 3 while keeping BF down. What are the big 3 you ask? Bench, squat, deadlift. As of right now my bench is 415, squat is 565 and deads are 615. Now i'm looking to increase all by 25 pounds but I do not want to gain to much BF. When I was young I bulked up the wrong way and got strong as hell but with it I got chubby as hell! So if anyone has some input, I would love to hear it. Thank you!
Thanks for the input! I bulked up big time when I was 21-24 and it had to do with exactly what you said, overeating. I got the results I wanted in the Weightroom but like I said before it came with unneeded lb's. I would eat clean but I would throw in 4 or 5 cheat meals a week, plus I was doing alot of drinking. I have cut out both fast food and drinking, also I realized I was taking in way to much sodium and carbs! I'm slowly learning what my body needs but I still feel I need that one extra meal to achieve the numbers I want.
250 Squats that's hardcore. I'm still in the amateur leagues!
Lol Idk if I can even do that, that's intense!
Thank you! I was blessed with great genetics, also 5 years with a strength and conditioning coach in college really helped! That's why I love these threads no matter how much you think you know you can always learn more!
Lol I knw wat your talking bout it was the old school way of bulking where you eat as much as you can...tho you do have to consume more then your average caloric intake to gain muscle mass the old school method took it to the extreme.. tho a bulking stage is necessary we dnt have to eat everything so to speak to get the results we want... usually adding 500 - 800 calories to your average caloric intake is suffiecent to meet the bulking requirment as well as keeping th bodyfat percentages low which looking at your numbers you ain't no amateur and I'm sure you knw what your doing and will figure out what your looking for if you haven't already
