in the gym – may.

at the gym: may

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.

Date 10.20.03 01.03.04 03.06.04 05.11.04

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.

    I’m over here starving myself & you’re doing the opposite. I just hope that once I shed the fat, I’ll be following your path! Good luck: it’s a lot of work & something to be proud of.

    Needing new clothes is never a bad thing.

    King Sexy has to live up to his title. 6 days a week huh? You go! PayPal some of that motivation to me.

    Ok…so I’ve gained about 8lbs w/ creatine and working out 4-5 days a week. I wanna do the 3500 calorie thing but it’s really hard. The protein shakes make me nauseous. And of course, my downfall is my lack of calorie/protein intake. I don’t have problems working out every other day or so…but eating 6 times a day is dreadful to me. When I tell people this they look at me like I’m crazy. Glad to know there’s someone else in the struggle. Let’s stay motivated!
