    doesnt sound bad to me. I notice this too sometimes. What are your measurments? Is your chest growing?
    I heard two guy talking in the locker room
    guy1: man i dont know what to do, i just lift whatever looks cool.
    guy2: ya thats what everyone does here, no one really has a plan.

    Fools....

    try 3000 cals. Just make sure they are real clean. At your age I doubt you will put on fat. Remember you are still growing so you could probablt eat as much as you wanted. When I was your age I was about a thin 190 and ate close to 4000cals a day of junk and never got fat.

    From the title of your thread, "Abs Bigger Than Chest", I was visualizing a dude with a big ole' beer gut. Homer Simpson style. The ladies love that look.

    Regardless of how clean you eat, if you take in too many calories you're going to store the unburned calories as fat...thats human anatomy.

    So thats bad advice.

    At 5'5 and what weight? If you're around 130lbs, 2500 calories w/ about 40% protein, 40% carbs, and 20% healthy fats sounds about accurate if you're putting on some weight. Are you putting on weight? Does it appear to be in the form of muscle or only fat? Even some of us young ones, like myself, tend to store fat just due to genetic make up if we try to bulk too quickly.

    Its all about you and what works for you, so the question remains are your lifts stronger now and are you putting on more weight at 2500calories?

    BTW, my abs stick out further than my chest as well and I have a fairly large chest. Some people sternums stick out further than others making their abs protrude. I know even when I was real young wrestling like 10, my friends would call me fat when i was a stick figure because my top ab sticks out.

    Oh no? You know his activity level? You know his genetic background? You know if he's currently gaining weight? You know if that weight is LMB or not?


    I agree if you want to get bigger, just eat a ****load, but this guy is obviously concerned with his bodyfat levels and regardless of age its quite possible to put on fat. Thats evident in the obesity levels in youths.
