First off, don't look at progress pictures of other people and expect the same from you.Originally posted by NotSoBig
I keep looking at your pictures. Is this much growth normal for 2 months time? I am really impressed man.
I never trained my entire body before, so I pretty much consider myself a "beginner" and was hoping to see some of the beginner gains but its just not working out. I am going to keep at it, but I too have been eating heavy and training hard for 2 months and you can't even tell a difference.
I am dedicated to this though, and I don't care if results come tomorrow, or in a couple years. Would really be nice to make those types of gains though.
Anyway, enough of my rambling. You are kicking ass. Keep it up!
I said what you see can be considered newbie gains, but I have been lifting seriously for nearly 3 years. I started as a Freshman in college at 155 pounds, grew to 170 by the middle of my sophomore year, then stopped. I thought I was eating enough, but I wasn't. I thought I was training right, but I wasn't. A person can't expect to jump into the weight room and expect to see huge gains even if they've researched lifting like mad and knows everything about it. It takes experience and learning what arm position works best for what exercise, which angle to lift at, etc. There is SOOOO much involved.
Also, I didn't start growing like I am now until I started doing heavy compound movements like deads and squats. I also learned what was best for me. I can't flat bench to save my life so I just started focusin on inclines. Before long I was repping 225 incline and my chest grew like no other.
Keep learning, eat a lot, and be patient. One say you will click both mentally and physically and it's a hell of a fun experience.
Oh yeah... as for your question about my routine, just check out my journal 'the end of the beginning'
