    Sorry 'bout that. The studies I've seen all concern only men. If I could find such things involving women I'd update the calculator ...if anybody knows of any studies I'd appreciate the pointer.

    I started at about 320 pounds or more (at about 55+% bodyfat) - I don't know for sure as my scales only went to 310. My waist was 56 inches. My Bench Press max was 60 pounds for 1 rep for my first...

    The body needs about 8.7 kcals to deposit 1 gram of protein, and about 8.7-12 kcals to deposit 1 gram of fat. Muscle is about 20% protein (with some fat) so it works out to about 3 kcals for each...

    Portboy,

    Remember that you cannot "force" your body to gain muscle at the rate you'd like ...you can only coax it along within it's own genetic coding. If you gain 1/2 lb of muscle a week for any...
