Hi im relativley new to weight lifting have only really lifted consitently for about 4 months which i did rippetoes i did this my senior year in HS(last year) right before wrestling season. It helped me alot and got me a lot stronger but now Im done with wrestling and just trying to get alot bigger and stronger and stay in good shape. so basically im trying to make a diet basically im 6ft1 178 pounds pretty cut up like u can see my top 4 abs. i eat 4000 cals aday in general so what im going to do is eat 4000 clean cals 40/40/20 does that sound good? im gunna weight myself every sunday morning and try and gain 1 pound a week if i dont gain the pound i will increase 250 cals the next week.
my little brother wrestles at 130 and he is 15 and is about 5'8 he weights about 134 he also boxes and wants to compete in mma hes eating 2250 cals a week and 40/40/20 hes gunna do the same thing as me except hes trying to just stay at 134 so if he gains or loses weight he will lower or raise his cals accordingly. does this sound about right? This may no belong here ill put it int he training section as well but also what do you guys think of the wannabe big workout 1? how good is that workout for someone who has only done rippetoes. i can squat about 280 for 1 bench 215 and deadlift 380
If you weren't able to eat for weight gain your first four months on SS I would continue with it now that you have upped your diet! You are likely to see some immediate gains due to the increased fuel in your diet. Do SS until you quit making progressive gains. Your macro's are fine to start and as always tracking and adjusting will be key. IMO
