Hardgainer trying to bulk up...
johnbiggity replied to johnbiggity's topic in Before/After Photos & Progress Photos & VideosThanks for the suggestions guys. I'll try to keep this updated every couple weeks or so. I'm not so sure if there is 'no such thing as a hardgainer'. Obviously some people have faster metabolisms and have ectomorphic body types less conducive to building mass; thus, it's harder for them to gain. Not impossible though! What you said about sleep is interesting. I'll look into it for sure.
A little background--- I'm a college student and I've been vegan for about 4 years. I've ALWAYS been very skinny even though I eat a ton. I've lifted on and off for the past couple years and have had little/moderate success gaining weight. However, the past couple months of school have been pretty stressful/busy and I've lost a lot of the gains I made. I'm posting on this board to try to motivate myself to stick to my routine... (still feel a little bit dumb posting shirtless pictures of myself on the internet). Height: 5'9 1/2" Weight: 150lbs. I'm starting off on a split-day lifting schedule 5 days a week. In addition, I'm planning on taking in 5000+ calories a day with 150g+ of protein. My goal is to add on a solid 10 pounds of muscle to get to 160lbs. Any suggestions are welcome! Before picture.
