When I joined this site, I weighed 155lbs at 6'3". I'm now 195+lbs. Small by the standards of this board, but I don't find myself being the 'skinny guy' anymore.
Thing is, I'm to the point that I want to start challenging myself to something besides getting bigger (I know, blasphemy!). I feel as though, despite my larger size, my athleticism has dropped.
I've done crossfit in the past, and am currently doing a day of sandbag training that is kicking my ass each week. I love it all, but I need a more defined goal.
Somewhere, my crazy ass decided to make maxing out the marine PT test the current goal. After a little **** talking, my friend is now challenging me to this. I want to beat him.
This is where YOU come in.
1>How do I keep size on while attaining following goals:
-3 miles in 18:00 or less
-100 crunches in 2 minutes
Just be sure to eat eat eat?? Is the running so much that it's simply much against normal lifting?
2>I'm used to training for strength and hypertrophy reasons. How do I train for this??
I've had advice from "if you want to do more pullups, just do them all the time" to "oh no, you've got to rest every other day!!"
So give me an example of what you would do.
