[QUOTE=imasillypiggy;34653434]No you can't. The most the average person can gain is about a year is 5-10 pounds. No matter how good a workout is it is impossible because of genes to go past a certain point. Your body doesn't even react fast enough to add 100 pounds in a month unless you just started lifting and even then its more of you getting used to the form more then you actually adding the muscle to do it. But if this actually works and if I'm able to lift 340 by the end of the month I will buy a title calling myself a faggot.[/QUOTE] show me where you read that

Your telling me my squat didn't go from 425 to 525 in a month? lol Put in some effort brah.
aside from this subforum ive never seen a post of his get less than 5 dumbs srs

If you added 5 pounds every time you worked out you would see a 65 pound gain not 100. Unlike what the author of Strong lifts 5x5 said genes actually do matter. You would have to be lucky to be able to get up to 25 pounds of muscle in a year. Unless this workout is so intense it literally breaks down my dna and builds it back up those are going to be big claims with very little proof.

again you arent posting your source on how its almost impossible to gain 25lbs of muscle a year and you fail to realize you dont limit yourself to going up 5 lbs a week only if you can manage more
[QUOTE=ImTerryCrews;34657035]again you arent posting your source on how its almost impossible to gain 25lbs of muscle a year and you fail to realize you dont limit yourself to going up 5 lbs a week only if you can manage more[/QUOTE] [url]http://muscleevo.com/how-fast-can-you-build-muscle/[/url] [url]http://www.aworkoutroutine.com/how-much-muscle-can-you-gain/[/url] You should be the one giving me sources proving that anyone can gain 25 pounds of muscle with that program.

I squat usually 4-5x a week, even though that month I was squatting less sometimes. Your body makes jumps sometimes man, its not all linear.
neither of the sources said anything about gaining 5-10 lbs a year , the studies in your sources fail to show their diet height and are poorly performed studies aswell , hoping that the subjects are fully compliant. hell even the program in the biggest study on one of your sources has a 5 day "body builder split" which are known as horrible trash for beginners and the study where even that paper got its numbers from is about milk or soy intake around the time of exercise. the best estimate is ~18-25 lbs of muscle a year with obvious outliers . yes there are some people that can barely gain any muscle because of some medical problems or some people who gain it crazily fast because of the same reasons but that does not mean that the low outlier is the average . youre own experience combined with confirmation bias doesnt make you right it makes you an idiot.

youre acting like he himself does sl lmao

Show your sources showing anyone could gain 25 pounds of muscle in a year?
it said diet didnt change much from pre training to during training . beginners that gain muscle much faster than the .......... low end of the bell curve omg amazing

You don't need a program once you become aware of your body.
I've been doing regular SS and recently saw SSPP. Is doing just pullups/chinups (+weight) enough to just replace rows?
i was waiting on a moment, but the moment never came regressing is sad brahs. been throwing bad all week

Not to discredit those studies, but honestly in some cases "bro" science works better. You need to push your body to adapt. You do that and your body will put on muscle. Or strength. And lettuce b realtea, those studies of "exercise" were probably shitty programs, with shitty diet. 99 percent of people who work out, don't workout anywhere near there ability, and the same amount don't eat right.
in most cases the programs are high volume but sometimes you find something akin to SS . the diets on 2 were unmonitored and 1 were forced diets with food supplied by the people doing the study [editline]12th February 2012[/editline] regardless adherence is the most important part and if someone finds ss to boring or anything then ofc they need to figure out a routine that works for them in both enjoyability/ability to do and gains
Holy fuck 3 days into my bulk, feel like a new man.
[QUOTE=Kel|oggs;34658897]Holy fuck 3 days into my bulk, feel like a new man.[/QUOTE] Day 1, and I feel normal. But not getting full as easily now. Getting a bit more tolerable to eat over the course of an entire day. What you bulkin on?

[QUOTE=Kel|oggs;34661882]3500 calories a day 200 or more grams of protein. Not a challenge for me.[/QUOTE] Hopefully I will attain a similar aptitude towards food over the course of the next few days.

Does anyone else like being in cool temperature, like all the time? I've shut off heating in my room, and the heater in front of window is behind curtain and just barely warm enough to keep moisture away. It's 13 Celsius/55 deg Fahrenheit here now and I'm feeling much better than I used to. I sleep much better even with a normal blanket & boxers only, and I often sit here shirtless while sitting on a computer. It does feel very cold when I come in here but my body adapts to the temperature very quickly. I'm also wondering if this will rise my calorie consumption... Probably a little, but not much.
I do like cool as well, although not quite THAT cool. Basically my whole apartment is about 16-17 degrees C except for bathroom which is probably 23 C since the radiator controller doesn't seem to do jack. It's indeed much easier to sleep in cool temperatures, although getting up from the bed is HELL.
I like warm. My room is like a sauna compared to the rest of the house.
I do like warmth too, but the problem with that is that any prolonged exposure to anything higher than coolish/average room temperature turns my armpits into waterfalls.
I used to like warmth, but then I started paying my own electricity bill.. I seem to be completely resistant to any cold temperature while behind a computer monitor. I sleep a lot better (and manage to get up properly) when the room's not that warm and when I don't have too many covers over me.
