new york vegan trying to get fit.


Recommended Posts

Welcome! Great to have you here...I remember my early days too...I could barely bench the bar (45 lbs), now I've benched around 270lbs. We all have our starting stops and then we progress and it is a wonderful ride!


All the best and welcome to our community!

Welcome, jesse!


I bet you already know much of this stuff, but I'd like to share some basic stuff that has helped me to bulk & gain well:


1. Eat, eat, eat. Stick to food that is full of fat and protein. That way you don't have to be full all the time. Nuts and seeds are the best way to go. Also, try to keep eating many times a day and you'll feel better than before.


2. Squat, deadlift, bench press, shoulder press, bent-over rows with a barbell, all kinds of moves that make you use your whole body. Use free weights, forget the isolative moves.


3. Use a post-workout drink which has protein and carbs and sleep enough.


Well, good luck. I'm sure you'll have great gains in no time if you just take enough calories!
