Protein question in Bodybuilding/Strength Training Posted May 9, 2010 I'm about 125-130 lbs, 5'8, and trying to add muscle weight. I consume a good amount of protein from my diet; I have peanut butter with breakfast and lunch, have lentil soup every day for lunch, eat a lot of nuts, beans, and have some kind of protein with dinner (tofu, seitan, tempeh, etc). I have my workout posted in the online journals section, but I do a four day split of chest/ triceps, back/ biceps, shoulders, and legs. I jog for a mile before each workout and do twenty minutes of cardio (jogging to sprinting) three times a week. I put on 7 pounds of lean muscle recently (10 before I dropped the fat I added with it), and this was before I started taking protein. I also had to cut back on my calories a bit since I was getting a gut. The protein has definitely helped with adding lean muscle, so I'm just wondering if I should take more. I'd love to eventually weigh 140-150, though that might take awhile since I don't want to add fat first. Especially not until the fall anyway. I do look much bigger than I weigh fortunately, but I hate being so light. If I ever get to my desired weight range, I'll be enormous! haha. Not sure I'll be able to achieve it, but it's worth a shot.
