So I’m still doing my gym thing, as usual…and it’s giving really good results.
I changed up:
1. Intake of at least 3,500 calories per day.
2. Intake of at least 75 grams of protein.
3. Working out 6 days out of the week, for an hour each time.
|Measurement (in inches)|
|Skin Fold (in inches)|
|Pounds of Fat||19.78||22.21||20.58||30.58|
|Pounds of Muscle||152.22||144.79||145.42||151.42|
|Total Muscle Gained||-2.75||-1.8||+0.63||+6.0|
So yes, having an intake of more than 3500 calories a day has it’s pluses and
minuses, but I’m gaining a lot more muscle than I expected. This working out
6 days a week at first seems a litle extreme, but the more I think about it,
it’s less time being spent working out (an hour or less each session), and of
course eating 6 meals a day helps too. So if I’m over your house eating your
stuff, then don’t sweat it. It’s for a good cause.
Only problem: now I need to buy bigger pants and bigger shirts. Rawr.
