Been on here for a while, but I've given myself some new goals and feel I need some help in achieving them! I'm 20 years old, 6'-6'1" tall, ~161lbs and been lifting for about a year but only seriously for about 6months ish. My big three look like this:
Bench: 176.4lbs x 5
Squat: 187.4lbs x 2
Deadlift: 286.7lbs x 3
My squat is terrible and is less just now than above, I've had a ankle problem for about 1 month and haven't been able to squat, it's got a lot better though and should be back squatting next week.
I'm going on holiday on September 29th and want to try get in good shape for then. I'm looking for a new routine, something quite simple I think, which will allow me to put on some mass. I'm looking at gaining 20lbs for now, which for me is a lot!
I've also ran out of weight gainer. I had been using Cytogainer and was planning on getting some more of that, anyone have opinions on this? Also thinking of getting some sort of creatine/energy boosting suppliment, anyone have any suggestions?
Edit: I've also decided to try and learn breakdancing, which requires a lot of bodyweight exercises, such as handstands, balancing on one hand etc... Is this still possible to do while gaining mass?
Thanks in advance,
more protein and calories should sort it. if your squat has gone down, then you probably have over-trained, so just go down by about 20% then work back up.
if youre dancing then add even more calories to compensate. and get some more weight gainer or batter yet a big tub of whey.
i doubt youll gain 20lbs of muscle in 6 months, though adding bodyweight in this time is childs play. how much have you added in the last six months?
Yea 20lbs of lean muscle is probably a bit unlikely, but I wouldn't mind a little fat gain. I've gained around 20lbs since I started lifting, most of that happened during the beginning.
