Is hitting a plateau almost always caused by not enough calories, especially when progess was being made every week? I eat around 2000 calories, and im stuck on the 135 squat, im 173 lbs 5 feet 7 inches. if i head up to a surplus, how much do i add? is 400 enough?

400 is plenty a surplus. Just make sure when calculating your maintenance you figure in all the stuff you do. Like I rock climb and run almost every day so I eat even a little extra

Well even if they are to low that means the excess protein isn't helping.

I'm not quite sure considering that I'm no expert but I would have to say a few hundred calories would get the gain train moving

**ironfan used "*roll picture*"**
**ironfan rolled image**Aight so I started the gym around a month and a half ago. Currently I do either 4x10's or 8x4's with heavier weights. Do you guys have any advice for what I could do better?

Alright, so I haven't worked out since my last wrestling season (last year), and first day of workouts, my coach had us do 63 pull ups, 30 light weight deadlifts, and 20 light power cleans. The next day, I had t-rex arms, which didn't go away for a straight week. When my piss changed colors, I assumed it was Rhabdo, but I'm a broke ass honkey and can't afford a doctor's visit, and decided to wait for a fever to set in. After about 3 more days, I could finally stretch my arms without pain, but now I can't do a single pull up, and all of my upperbody max's are halved. Its been about 5 weeks since then, and I'm not dead, so I guess its not Rhabdo, but my arms have only gotten slightly better. Do you guys have any idea what's wrong?

>They fucking suck at it anyway
>Instead you end up becoming a whore trading your practices for free pierogis like the filthy little potato slut you are

I can physically feel my totals leaving my body and want to fucking die. I barely even want another pot just punch me in the shoulderblade as hard as you fucking can please

It can be worse than overeating at times. Your body can go into shock thinking it needs to preserve more of the food and nutrients creating slow burning stocks of energy (which is fat). You need to stick to 3 meals a day that match your calorie burn (eat like a king for breakfast, a lord for lunch, and a peasant for dinner).

Yes it's bad. You'll lose weight faster but you also mess up your metabolism too. Also harder to do past the first couple days.

405x7. Accidentally T&G'd the first rep, but 6 reps is still a PR for deadstop.

It stremfening.

So I just brought my first tub of Creatine. I read about the loading phase (20gs a day for five days spread out over 4 meals) and then a maintenance phase. Also how there aren't really any real bad outcomes from taking it.

I'm just wondering, can I have any opinions or advice in regards to making sure I am doing it correctly and maximizing my benefits? Change in diets? Workout intensity? I'm going to start the loading phase tomorrow.

I'm new to taking supplements. One of my mentors told me to start taking it alongside of buying a tub off Whey.

5 grams a day after you load up and a gallon of water minimum.

You dont need a damn gallon
Just drink plenty of water throughout the day, if you ever notice you're just sitting at your computer desk at home, or at work, get a class of water. i carry my water bottle around everywhere and try and go through it 2-3 times throughout th day.
The only side effect youll get from creating and no water is some possible stomach cramps

I personally find myself drinking a little over a gallon of water most days, not including other liquids. I used to drink less but I've slowly built up to it out of habit.

Surely you mean spread out through the day. I thought you meant like a gallon at once

I now use creatine for I think a year now. I haven't notice anything negtive about it.
I only stopped once for a week because I was on holiday (most of the time it says to have an off week every 3 months or so?) but it doesn't really matter to keep on going. No records of anyone that got sick of it or whatever. It's also something that the body already makes.
The only thing is that you should do is to drink a little more water, since it dehydrates a little bit because it's going to your muscles.

Whey is optional. You can take it if you don't get enough protein by your regular income. Like I take it because I'm nowhere close to getting enough protein. But if you already consume a lot of meat/eggs whatever protein rich is, it isn't necessary.

How much weight were you squatting? I got up to 195 successfully and never had stretch marks, but added a decent bit of size. I also did leg curls/ extensions and a deadlift variation.

When I did Wendler 5/3/1 for three months my shoulders sprouted like 4 new marks a side and have never faded. They're ugly and I'm proud of each one.

Does anyone know much about slow twitch vs fast twitch muslces? I seem to be able to do way more reps than i should of certain weights. Like I can deadlift 225 for 5, not easily. but I can also deadlift 185 for 18 reps in a row.
That doesn't seem to make sense but that's how my squat and bench are also.
Does this mean my body is just built for this or is it something I can change by doing heavier weight with low reps more often? Id like to be able to lift a fuck ton

Yeah man it's simple, slow Twitch is when you're watching your favorite speed runner, but your internet connection is bad, so you miss seeing the WR live. Fast Twitch is when your connection is rockin, so you pull off the Kappa Pyramid in a busy chat and everyone freaks out.

Well the difference between slow and fast twice muscle is in how much oxygen is used by the muscle. So a slow twice muscle fiber will come into play more when you start getting into your aerobic exercises and you quick twitch will be there for things like sprints or coming off the line in football.

Is most of your work over 5 reps? If you do mostly higher rep work your lower rep sets are going to be more difficult. I can pull mid 3s yeah, I'm a pussy but have pulled 255 for 15 after squats.

Just keep pulling heavy and you'll keep improving. If you're finding progress is slow, try adding stiff leg deadlifts on a different day for added volume.
