That sucks man I know how it feels that's why I'm investing in a home gym :)
5/3/1 is great man, I won't know the results until I test my 1 rep max's next month but I've got high hopes :) how much longer do you think you'll follow 5x5??

Managed to hit 3000 Cal yest , will try and maintain the same today as well and for next 2 weeks actually . That is apprx 400-500 increase in my daily calories . I realize that since i have started i am lifting much more weight and i should increase my calories accordingly . I'l do this as a 2 weeks thing if i pack on more fat i will probably come back to 2500 else try and work on from there .
Its a very Rainy day out here in Delhi today , hope everyone's doing good .

Good job on the calories mate! I never count mine but I'm pretty sure I'm eating enough ahha, gonna count and lower calories just before summer so I can get my weight down a bit and hopefully keep my strength the same.
How are things aesetically? You putting on weight at all?
Ps its sunny here :p

Aesthetically well i am definitely feeling better than i ever was , but most of my growth is in the Back . My Chest hasn't grown much but it does feel a little thicker than before .
Delts are rounding up now slightly which is good . Arms i don't think there's much increase in size from what i measured but they look in better shape . Quads are looking much better than ever before .
Unfortunately all this is still accompanied by some thick layer of fat around my Gut :cry:
These are my measurements taken on 26th Jan unfortunately i did not take any measurements before so these are my base for now to improve on from here :-

Forearms - 11inch
Biceps - 13.6 in
Calves - 14.8 in
Chest - 40 in
Thighs - 21.5 in
Waist - 35.5

Well got a wedding at home this week and a slightly packed schedule with work so i have decided to use this time as a week off from all types of training . I have been doing Strength Training for almost 15 weeks now and i guess a week off should definitely help me .
All the best to everyone working out this week .
