Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
Haha, the Hodge Twins are epic.
Anyway, I have some questions. I've been bulking for around 2 and a half months, and at first I saw some gains, about 6 pounds to half a stone, increasing weight, etc (my workouts weren't even that good compared to now, like only doing standard bench presses for chest lol). Now, the only real increase I am seeing is with my chest, everything else is basically staying at the same weight. I'm getting enough protein, sleep, surplus of calories etc, but I am not seeing any (real) gains and on the scales I am the same and have been for a few weeks.
I split my workouts into a 3 day split 2x a week, can't do deadlifts or squats or many real leg exercises because my knees are totally fucked (not using it as an excuse, they hurt all the time) and the next day my knees hurt like a bitch and can't actually walk, even with a relatively light weight. I give myself a rest day here and there but otherwise I'm going at it everyday whether it's 'cardio' or weights so could this be over-training?
My diet isn't totally awesome but most of my foods are good, healthy foods like egg whites, meats, etc. I'm noticing that I'm getting fatter but not really more muscular so it's bugging me. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
