Im 6' 170 lbs, 19 yrs old, graduated HS as a big runner, at about 150-155 lbs. Put on a solid 15 lbs but its been almost 2 years now and im looking for bigger gains. I had been doin a ****ty full body workouts 3 days a week for about a year or so. Then started doing 3 days a week of bi's/back, chest/tris, and legs/shoulders. Didnt seem to be doing much either. So last week i started with the WBB 1.1. I am concerned about not enough upper body in it. but so far this was my week last week. ive also altered the abs a bit since ive got a lot of good ab workouts, and even throughout my gaining struggles ive maintained a good 6 pack so i like to think at least im doin that right.

I noticed you said you were 170 lbs, and then I read the first line of your workout where you squat 145, so I stopped reading. I'm sure you can squat more being a runner and all. You have alot of exercises posted, probably more than you need. I say check out he workout routines on the site and use them. They're simple, easily doable and will involve every muscle you'll need. When you gain some mass from doing the exercises and eating then you can branch out to more isolated routines that'll work on parts that need shaping. Do you sweat when you lift?

yea i sweat a lot with this new workout... the reason i do 145, is cause i mean first off i didnt squat much before this, if at all. and the 1 min rest w 6 reps, gets you more than you'd think... this was todays workout, prob couldve done more on squats like 155.

It's not ideal. What causes the breaks? Is it a regular occurrence?

PFM8241988

no just breaks when i go home from school, every 2 months-ish...

Why not do bodyweight exercises during said break?

Chins, wall squats, dips, towel pulls, pushups...Not ideal, but quite a few people have built good/solid physiques from BW exercises alone.

A 5-day break every 2 months won't hurt you at all, as long as you are working out and eating right regularly between the breaks. :)

You asked for some feedback in the private message. 1.1 is a good workout. As long as you try to add weights every week and hit the compound exercises you'll get stronger.

As for getting bigger, eat your bodyweight x 18 + 500 in calories. For me that's 242 x 16 +500 = 4856. Yes, i weigh alot, and plan on getting BIGGER!

If you hit your calorie counts each day, you WILL gain weight. If you gain more than 2 pounds per week, you may want to ease off by 300 calories.

That being said, I only tracked calories until I got a feel for what worked for me. Now I just eyeball things and when I bulk, I gain about 2 - 3 pounds per week. I like to cycle between bulking fast and maintaining. While I maintain, I tend to lose a little fat and build muscle at the same time, maintainining my bodyweight.

Everyone has their own method. But when it comes down to it, just make sure to EAT to get BIGGER! RIGHT?!!!!!

As for what to eat, just make sure to get enough protein, at least 1 g per pound of body weight. My body hates carbs, cuz they make me sleepy, so I aim for 2g per pound, split the rest of my cals between healthy fats and carbs.

For more advice, read the WBB articles!! And ask a lot of questions.

Just don't give up and most importantly, learn to love the process. You're going for a lifestyle, not a one-time fix. Once you start enjoying it, it's a freaking amazing process!!

My suggestion would be to ditch the wide grips...if you want to keep your rotator cuffs healthy past the age of 40 or so. Narrow grip (about shoulder width or so) works the muscles the same way and is easier on the shoulders.

If you don't know if your lifts are going down, you may want to track better when you go to the gym. Do you have a small notebook that you put all the lifts in?

If you aren't gaining weight, you need to change your diet. Increasing calories may help, but sometimes changing what you eat helps.

Until you get a "feel" for what to eat, you may want to put your diet into www.fitday.com, to know exactly how many calories your eating, plus what % are carbs, fats, and protein.

Another thing to do instead is to conciously eat more healthy fats. Add 6 tablespoons of Smart Balance Peanut Butter (found at walmart or anywhere).

For me, I only eat carbs in the morning, right before and after my workouts. Otherwise, I try to have meals that are 50% protein and 50% fat cals...with some fiber from veggies (which I don't do nearly enough!!)

If you stall on your lifts, try changing to 4 sets of 6 reps. You'll need to go heavier to make this a struggle. On your last rep, you should barely be able to do one more if you had to.

Does this help?

mickyjune26
04-09-2008, 07:58 AM
THIS MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO NOT GIVE UP!! Right now you're learning about your body..what to eat...how to exercise. If I had stuck with it the first time I started in 2002, I'd be tearing it up right now. But alas, live and learn!

Now go and eat some Smart Balance Peanut Butter! HAVE FUN!!
