Not bad for "back to deadlifts" after some injuries
320 lbs and getting stronger everyday.
Carbs are your best friend and can be your worst enemy too- if you don't know how to utilize them in your favor.
Beginners Tip: use carbs AROUND your workouts, eat a meal that is high in carbs (i.e. brown rice) about an hour before your workout that also has good protein, followed by another high carbs and protein meal immediately after your workout and make sure to include simple carbs in the latter (cookie, or gummy bears, etc). You'll see the difference in your performance at the gym as you implement this technique everyday with your workout.
I'm very pleased with my overall results thus far. Since August 4th, my last #npcphysique
competition, I put on 32 lbs of water, muscle and fat to make my weight stands at 204 lbs at about 12% body fat. Also, as I add carbs, good fats (i.e. Coconut oil) and protein- my overall strength has gone up high, which also means my muscle mass has increased as well.
I might continue to bulk up for the entire year and will work on shedding fat later, as I want to be big enough to look more defined than I was last time when I was on stage at 4% body fat.
Ultimately, I want to be in the body size of @smith.julian
then maintain it from there. They're both inspirations for many people.
