Any Weightlifters, Bodybuilders?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to get back into shape, trying to gain the weight lost.  Has anyone been accompishing it? and how are you going about this routine?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I've been making good gains in muscular strength over the past two months and my energy levels have improved. The key for me is just to consume food in bulk (I've always had a high metabolism, mind you), and work out 4-5 times a week with high-intensity lifting. I'll drink Gatorade, but for food I don't go for any gluten-free energy bars. For me, it's lots of potatoes, rice, meat, and eggs. I got through a fair amount of nuts and gluten-free bread, too (the bread is great for quick carbs). Although I do get a good deal of fresh vegetables, I don't count them as helping my energy levels too much.

I take a multivitamin (Centrum once a day), L-glutamine (500mg twice a day), and a Calcium supplement (600 mg twice a day).

My villi are still healing and I've got a relatively low tolerance for lactose and fats. Once that clears up (hopefully soon), intake of olive oil, cheese, and milk should help things improve further.

I am trying to get back into shape, trying to gain the weight lost. Has anyone been accompishing it? and how are you going about this routine?

I lift 4 days per week... advanced split routine... legs/glutes day one, back/chest day two, biceps/triceps day three... and then shoulders with some more lower body on day four...

I perform three different exercises per body part... 3-4 sets per exercise... 8-10 reps on some... 10-12 reps on others... lifting heavy enough to hit mmf on the last few reps of each set... Cardio is mixed in and performed at high intensity intervals...

Things are going well... I just transitioned to this routine a couple of weeks ago... I usually plateau about 6 weeks out so I'll have to let you know how things went in about a month...

I enjoy everyone's take on either gaining muscle or maintaining weight. I personally eat a Paleo diet (no grains and no dairy in a nutshell...) and it took a while for me to "regulate". Needing to be gluten-free and thus having less access to carbs, I supplement with 100% egg protien, take the l-glutamine 500mg 2x per day (on lifting days only though), and make sure I eat/re-energize within 30 mintues of the workouts. I keep the omega-3 oils going to ensure health with my multi-vitamin 1 a day (gluten-free of course) I also workout 4-6 times a week.

I am having trouble gaining weight back after I reached my ideal weight for my height (6'1" at 175lbs). My goal is to hit 185# with muscle. I also hear potatos on workout days are good to gain with. Anyone know of anything else? I eat tons of lean meat, fish, and poultry.

Any ideas would be much appreaciated.

I would say EAT EAT EAT. You seem like an ecto so focus on your compound lifts, squat, deads, and bench. Abs are made in the kitchen, not in the gym.


God sees you homie
