Not sure if bragging? My shirts are large in the arms...no flab son...hard time at home and a bowflex.
Not at all. Just bemoaning my inability to add (good) weight despite frequent lifting.
Go with 1.5 grams of protein per lb. (IE if you're 200 lbs...go with 300 grams per day). Preferably egg whites (by the dozens) turkey breasts and fish along with your supplemental stuff. Spread this out over 6 meals. Pack a cooler.
Abs aside, work any particular body part just once per week, but with great intensity. Do a large pulling muscle group one day (IE your lats) then your legs the following day, then a small pushing group the next (triceps), etc.etc. Take a week off every 8 weeks.
The most necessary component that most overlook? Rest / quality sleep. Remember this mantra for size:
Don't run if you can walk.
Don't walk if you can stand.
Don't stand if you can sit.
Don't sit if you can lie down.
If you can lie down, sleep.
There are many great routines. The above worked best for me (when adding size). Your body is genius and it's lazy. It will learn to cheat if you let it have a memory, so keep mixing it up / adding different techniques.
I'm 6' and my target weight is typically 225. I'm currently 210 and I'd guess around 10%.
PM me if you ever need advice. I'd be happy to assist.
