Well depends on how much I actually chew the donuts. If I just chew once and then swallow, along with a swig of coffee, I can get 17 easy. So 20 isn't out of the realm of possibility.

Also no progress pics for me either, I dont really have a cutting season or a bulking season I try to stay constantly around 195-205. I start lifting heavier right before summer to try to get as big as possible for the summer months.

It's all good as long as you apply yourself. I just hate the first couple of weeks during Jan because of all those new resolutioners packing up the gym.

I wish I took some pictures of my progress because seeing yourself daily, it's almost impossible (at least for me) to see the progress. I started out at 210 lbs and 30% body fat in Sept. and some of my friends that I haven't seen in several months swore I got lipo, lol.

For those who have a 24 Hr Fitness nearby and is a Costco membership, Costco has an awesome deal that's going to expire at the end of the month. $300 for 2 years membership at any 24 Hr Fitness excluding the Ultra and Super Sport.

I love going to the gym at odd hours and there's only 10 other guys in there with you. You get so much more done.

Way to go ...You seem to be on the right groove to make this a big part of your daily life.

I can assure you I am not a new year/ fair weather gym member. However, I just joined back in October of last year after about more than.... 20 years of not stepping into any gyms at all (give or take a few years!). I am 49 but have been blessed with decent genes and better than average metabolism. It has helped me maintain my weight between 150-165 lbs. which is not too bad for my height of 5'-8". I just got tired of "feeling tired" and my stamina sucked - not to mention the body fat ratio. So, with the age getting up there, I thought it was the right time to think more seriously about my health. I also wanted to do something together with my teenage son. So decided to enroll both of us so that him and I can spend some time together every week. Now, the challenge is getting him off his computer and PS3. He's a big gamer and can go non-stop until he passes out of exhaustion!

How many reps/sets should i do to have a toned body but still be kinda big too. I'm 6'3" ~200 pounds. I usually do 3 sets 8 - 12 reps. Even though i've toned up a lot i wanna get bigger now, but not like those huge mofos at the gym lol.

32 yrs , 5'5" and 145lbs. Been on again off again since high school. I don't know what my bodyfat % is but the last time I was at the gym was November. back in 05 i was hitting the gym 2 times a day. In the afternoon b4 work and after work at 2 am. Then I got too comfortable and they changed the hours on me at the gym. I used to take progress pics when I was in my early 20's. When I had some definition in my mid-section. Now it's just a single blob. Well It's not that bad considering the foods I eat. i can still see a hint of shadow where there used to be abs. but Only in the morning when I wake up though. lolz

That rep range is fine IMO. Sometimes if I go heavy on my 3rd set I will do a drop set where I drop the weight and go to failure to get a few more reps in. Keep in mind though that a muscle can only do two things. It can grow or it can shrink... it can't "tone," but you can go for a toned look with some decent muscle mass and low bf%. To get like a huge mofo you have to lift heavy and eat like an animal. Diet is just as important as training when it comes to hitting your goals.

Less than 10% bf is pretty ripped... like nice, defined 6 pack ripped. I can't wait to get there. I'm guessing two more months

I agree with BoostedBMW. Less than 10% body fat is what most, if not all people who work out aim after and that's a 6 pack.

Prior to my work out journey, I bought a nice scale from Brookstone that tells your weight, body fat %, bone mass, etc. I think it's pretty accurate, minus a percent or so. You just put in your age and height and stand on it.

The rule of thumb is:

To lose, you do high reps (12+) and reduce calorie and carb intake significantly.

To tone, you do high reps (8+) and reduce calorie and carb intake gradually.

To gain, you do low reps (3-6) and increase calorie and carb intake significantly.

You won't find out over night what exactly is the most ideal amount of calorie/carb/protein intake at any given interval. You eventually learn it. For example, some people can consume 300g of carbs and protein and build fast. Some take that much and hardly grow anything - except they end up going to the washroom a lot.

Test it out gradually to find out what works for you.

Actually, it has everything to do with eating more. All that having a high metabolism means is that you have a higher basal metabolic rate (BMR) so that means that you need to take in more food to make gains than most. The only way to put on any type of substancial mass/lean gains is through eating more than you require. I am also a typical hardgainer, but once I actually started tracking my cals I quickly realized that what I thought was a lot of food was in fact not so much, and for the first few weeks of bulking I needed to force feed myself before I started seeing respectable gains on the scale and in the mirror. Now, I need to trim off that excess fat that comes with trying to maximize muscle gains, but its better than busting my ass in the gym for a year with mediocre results that come from just eating when I thought I was hungry. I try to drill the idea into people's heads that without a proper diet then all the time and effort that you put in the gym is really not being capitalized on because I wasted so much time myself without proper nutrition, and this holds true across the board for whether you trying to make lean gains or shed fat.

that dude is going to be f-ed when he gets older and his test level goes down. he'll be a fat skinny guy with no muscles... I'm not suggesting not to eat clean but don't skip dessert and try to eat 5 strong meals a day + at least 1 protein shake...

I agree on the diet. It matters as much as your work out. I guess i'll try to do heavy for a few weeks see if it makes a difference, but i like the way my body is now. A few more months and the packs should be well defined.
