Ok so I ate good then I lost wieght. I have had to stick at the same wieght for squats only for like 2 months because it was hard for me to learn them. Max now is 135 pounds total parellel. Anyway, so if you eat all good foods AND like some bad foods with them (breyers ice cream. I assume you will gain fat,but at the same time mass. I am having to go down a pants size. This is good,but it wasn't really my goal. I am now lifting 145 on bench.
1.) I must not be eating enough good foods.
I have one cheat day saturday.
The rest of the week consist of protien shakes, almond butter, turkey sandwiches,fruit, veggies(no dressing) and similar stuff
I'm being paraniod about my forms. I have had ten pro-squaters,benchers,sit-up people etc ALL check my form. They say it is good. I wear a belt when I squat. I have not been moving up in arms(curling 40 on each side three sets of ten because I want my calves to catch up).
So is it time to stop thinking whether my form is good? Is it time to move up?
Like I said, guys who squat 300 pounds parellel ALL say my form is good.
Should I eat bad food(I highly doubt it cause that would make no sense),
I read the artical btw
Engineer, what exactly constitutes "a lot of good foods" to you? If you're convinced that you're eating a ton, but you're LOSING weight, something doesn't add up here. Have you opened a www.fitday.com account yet? If you haven't, go there and open one up - track everything you eat for a week or two, and if you're getting the same amount of calories daily (oh, say 3000) and not growing, then you know what you need to do. Add 300 calories to that number and track again for a week. If you're still not gaining weight, add another 300. It isn't rocket science, but it does require dedication.

Back in the States to get hayooooge!
- Weigh a healthy and active 170-180, healthy mind and body
- Dunk a basketball (hey a man can have big dreams huh)
- Swim 2-3x/week and become a better swimmer
Ok so eat more calories per day. Does this mean include food like ice cream with the good? I am eating a crap load of good foods. The only muscle I don't work out is my shoulders. Will that make my bench and squat better???
