    Less Lifting And Strategic Eating For Hypertrophy

    I've been way overtraining for a long time and eating to much, which ultimatley morphed me into the first skinny fat strong guy, at least in my gym and school.

    Currently Im 140lbs at 5'7 with 122 lean body mass, so I have 18lbs of fat. Everyone says im to light to cut so I'm going to bulk up. Im doing the zig zag diet.

    Which mean I will eat around 3k-4k cals for 2 weeks and drop it to 1.5k cals for 1 week and continue at that cycle. In that 1 week I will do no weights but alot of bodyweight exercises and cardio.

    anyway, Im going to bulk up to around 200lbs in 8 months, and hopefully I will gain at least around 30lbs of muscle.

    So your planning on gaining 60 lbs in 3 months? That's way too much weight for that short time frame and if your successful it will be mostly fat. You should aim to gain 1-2 lbs each week.

    well, today I did

    3 x 12 dumbell bench, rest pausing the last few reps on each set

    3 sets of pull-ups

    2 x 15 of dumbell rows, rest pausing the last few reps on each set


    I dont barbell bench press because It will aggrivate my rotator cuff from a previous injury and Im doing enough just to stimulate hypertrophy.

    and I drank my 1000k cal shake right after

    Well, my buddy had no cushion for his squat rack so Im like, forget that garbage. So I did :

    verticle leg presses 3 x 10-15-20 rest pasusing

    stiff leg deadlift 2 x 15 rest pausing

    seated calf presses 2 x 10-20 rest pausing (almost tore a calf muscle)

    50 v-ups

    got home soon after and drank my 1000k shake
