Re: A quick question

Leg work is still important for the release of extra growth hormone, buts its not necessary to build a bigger torso, just beneficial.

Re: A quick question

Not neglecting your legs is important as well. You look silly with a big torso but small legs.

Re: Increasing Muscle Mass

I will. What should I use instead?

On a related note to the topic, my bench press shot up from struggling with 132lb to some decent sets with 143lb, which I was fairly satisfied with.

Re: Increasing Muscle Mass

Is your (overhead) press still going up? As for breakfast, how about a glass of milk and a small snack to start with? You can have more to eat once you're fully awake. This is what I do, given that I'm not a breakfast person either. Its going up, albeit very slowly. I recently strained my shoulder ...

Re: Increasing Muscle Mass

It hasn't all been muscle, but my body fat percentage has stayed the same (5.7%), so I guess thats ok? My squat and deadlift are going up fine, but my bench has kinda stalled recently.

Is there anything in my diet or lifestyle I could do to help increase the speed at which I gain muscle mass? I have an ectomorphic body type, but I don't find it incredibly difficult to gain mass. At the moment, I'm eating between 3000-3200 calories a day, with about 110-130g of protein and an equal...

Re: 6-pack

Luckily I've been blessed with a natural six pack, but I do also work it every other day or so, a little.

It tends to impress the ladies, but it doesn't really have an effect on whether you get it on or not, it seems.

I generally just use it to gauge whether I've ate enough.

On the subject of roundabouts, every time I go to the gym I have to pass across one on foot. It is definitely the most dangerous area of road near here to cross, due to being so awkwardly placed you can't see what cars are about to go onto the damn roundabout.

The gym I go to has been closed since a week today, so I've had to miss two sessions.

Anyways, everything was fine, apart from the bench press, which I screwed up. I did the sets too fast and then failed on the 4th one when I tried to put the weight up.
