Keep it up, Fury. Adding some weight will help you box out. Those ball players are getting bigger every year, yet they are just as fast every time.

Could you imagine boxing out Shaq?

fury
10-08-2006, 11:48 PM
lol, good thing im a guard/forward...so i would have to box out guys like antoine walker, kobe, stackhouse..which is still alot lol

Good workouts. If you start to get burnt out, you will be able to continue to build muscle and gain weight if you left out the lifts that isolate the biceps and triceps. If you're still enjoying this, then keep them in.

You are a good man to be able to lift and do bball for so many hours.

Keep it up!

fury

REVIEW FOR WEEK 2

Happy overall with the amount of food eaten this week, i dunt like eatin like every 2 hrs and makin food for myself, but i think the results will soon show..

in terms of work-out missed a few here n there, this is the stuff that will kill me in the long run..cant loose focus

weight went from round 195-196 from last week...altho i think last week i measured rite after eatin, n tday rite after i took a huge **** lol..so i think the difference is maybe more like 2-3 lbs..and if i continue puttin on even 2 lbs a week for next 4 months..i will be extremely happy

Missing a workout or two is not so bad, you'll stay on track...even if you gained a pound a week, that would be sweet.

REVIEW FOR WEEK 3

Happy with the work put in, did most of the different work-outs and routines I was supposed to do

Def. unhappy with the diet..it wasnt horrible, but definately needs help, as i could of squeezed in at the very least 1 meal every day and most 2

MORE bad news lol..
upon goin to weight myself tday, i found the old scale in the changeroom gone and a new one replacing it..when i stepped on it, i found that i went from 198 to 191 in 1 day :bang: im pretty sure my diet wasnt that bad that i lost 7 lbs in 1 day, so it looks like all this time i was even punier then i thought i was..now my goal looks even further away, as there are only 4 months left, and instead of puttin on 15-20 lbs, i have to put on round 25 lbs now

10-22-2006, 11:51 PM

Coke
10-26-2006, 04:33 AM
Keep hanging tough and do the best you can with it all. It's got to be real hard and challenging trying to add on some mass especially with your height and build plus you expend some much energy from being so active.

mickyjune26
10-26-2006, 07:53 PM
Yeah man, check out the calorie calc in my sig. i'm estimating that you will need around 4,000 cals to gain.

The best weightgainer I've come across is cytosport's cytogainer, I learned about it here where some of guys use it.

Personally, I wouldn't do shoulders the day before chest & tri's, I actually like throwing them all together for a push day session. Stay with the workouts and basketball to keep an edge on your competitors bro.

No doubt man, that is some damn good stuff - I add peanut butter, a little canned fruit, an egg or two into the cytogainer and it tastes great but don't take it for granted, you got to eat more too. I never liked creatine.

that's pretty cool. Do you get burnt out when you hit 4 hours a day? When I was practicing to be a jazz musicion, I would practice as much as the pros. Some days I couldn't quit, and some days I would take breaks every 45 minutes to keep my sanity while practicing drills.

All in all, the more quality hours I put in, the close to sounding like a pro I became.

Keep up the great efforts, and post your basketball workout hours and routines like you've been doing!
