If You Want To Keep Getting Stronger, Keep Eating…

You need to eat to get strong.  If you are trying to lift heavy and your calories are not increasing, your strength gains are going to come to a stand still.

I made that mistake in College.

It took me FOREVER to bench press 315 lbs, although I was benching 305 almost every week.  Half of the problem was probably mental, but the other half, was that I was not gaining enough weight.

If you don’t gain any weight, why would your muscles look any larger? Where will the mass magically appear from?

One mistake I see in the gym all the time, is big guys not lifting heavy enough.  But, another problem is skinny guys not taking in enough calories.

If you are brand new to the sport, you will see some easy gains in the beginning, but that is going to stop eventually if you don’t eat.

A 20-inch bicep is going to weigh more than a 15-inch bicep, and if you don’t feed your muscles, all of the workouts are going to be a waste.

I am down to my last 10 weeks of my bulk up and I have gained at least 25 lbs.  It’s weird, but I only start to get super strong after I weigh 170 lbs.

At over 180 I am even stronger and when I am at 190-200, I am an ox.

You need to eat.

Can you put on weight slowly?  You can try, but this doesn’t work for me.  I need to lift heavy weights in the winter otherwise I am wasting my time.

Around Valentines Day I will start to cut down in calories and I am also going to get back into my cardio workouts.  The advantage I will have over the other guys, is that I will still be lifting heavy weights at a light body weight.

If I can bench press 355 in the winter and then still bench 275-295 in the summer, I will look a lot more solid than the so called “lean guys”.

I’m having a good bulk up season this year, my competition has been warned.
