    Why am I getting stronger?

    Hey guys, since I have made my return back into intense training I have changed a few things up, but mostly kept my old habbits, but I have now noticed that my strength is going up, and up, and up, and...well up. I have no idea why. I am doing hypertophy specific techniques and not going for strength. It seesm like at the start of a new week I am way stronger than the last week, and it has been consistant for about 3 months now. The only drastic thing that I have changed is my diet. I am geting a lot more of my nutrients from whole foods and try to not to tke any weight gainers or too much whey.
    --I am just wondering in your guy's opinion, if you think that the change in diet is the major component in my incredible increase in strength?

    -realy hoping to hear from LAM, and PowermanDL, and some of you other guys...

    I think the diet change could probobly help but I really think it is just that u r just coming back to it. From my experience of other people both people who start working out and people who were serious about it for a while, stopped, then when back to it made big gains right away. However, 3 months seems like a long time to be making these gains.
    Just my guess but If I were u, I wouldn't expect it forever. I don't know though.
    hmmmmmmm... will i ever be big enough?

    Maybe you weren't eating enough before and you are now. Getting most of your nutrients from whole foods is a definate improvement.

    you wouldn't want people to think you don't know the correct names for your favourite exercises

    ...and dont eat over 35g of protein at a time, your body cant break down more than that , so it would be a waste
    Curious about your diet... How do you manage to get all of your daily protein in at only 35g per sitting?

    Ok, I've reread both this thread and the other one again, and I still don't see what I am interested in... The consensus on this thread seems to be that perhaps you weren't eating enough.

And if you were to just do it by method of 40g at a time it would 8 times 8x40= 320...

    -Now here is the best part..I never said one sitting had to be spread apart by at leaste an hour. So now we have a whole element , Hey you can eat more than once every hour. So why does this all seem so hard for you to believe?

    -and even if we upped it to 2g/per pund that only equates to 11 meals with 40g's at a time that is not that hard if your eating through out the day, given if you are eating maybbe every 40-50 minutes.

    So, if you are seeing these "incredible" strength gains, and you think that your change in diet is the cause of it, then please post your diet before and after the change. Then let us know just how often during the day you are eating.
