He could get one of those anyway, so his caregiver can go cruising with him.

If Cam gets too big(for his chair), he can always step up to the BIG BOUNDER BARIATRIC POWER WHEELCHAIR.



That's just crazy.

Adrian, that's a great idea! Only thing is that I get lots of ladies riding around on my lap or standing on the wheelie wheels behind me, in which case I can use their chest as a headrest cool. One of the perks of being handicapped smile .

At 5'11 and 160 I try hard to gain weight whenever I can. I lift weights 3-4 times a week and try and take in a lot of protein (shakes, bars, etc.) after my work outs. I try to keep up ok my cardio buy it's easy to convince myself to skip when I'm trying not to lose weight. I'd like to gain an extra 10-12 pounds but it's pretty hard. People at work are always commenting on how often I eat too. I snack throughout the day (protein bars, tuna, peanu butter and jelly, yogurt, etc) to try and keep my calorie intake up but perhaps still not eating enough.

You have no idea how lucky you are David.

Sigh, looking back at my last post in this thread in '08, I've gained a 'little'. I shed a couple of pounds this fall, probably cumulative from my gentle golf exercise program over the summer, but I will struggle over the winter. Just can't get motivated to run or do fitness in a gym.

I am motivated to read this thread over the winter thought.

Hey CV, how is it all your co-workers turn out to be women? You overseeing someone's harem?

Actually, now that our boss is a female, our department, which has been historically overwhelmingly female is now tipping to the male side. I simply haven't gotten that close with my male coworkers yet.Not enough to hang out with outside of work, anyway. My best friend is the female coworker I've worked with the longest, so she's who I do a lot of stuff with.

David your last comment hit the nail on the head:

The equation is simple. Eat 500kCal/day more than you burn and you will gain a pound a week. Since I started working out again I’ve gained exactly a pound a week for a total of 7 pounds. I will work out for another 3 weeks gaining 3 more pounds before taking a one week break at which point I will start again for 10 weeks and 10 more pounds at which point I’ll evaluate how I want to continue.

I use to think of myself as a “hardgainer.” After I started powerlifing I realized that is an often overused excuse. “Hardgainers” are almost always over/under-trainers and/or under-eaters and it’s usually the latter, since 3500kCal a week equals a pound. Training will just help more of that be muscle than would have otherwise. If you are not gaining weight you aren’t eating enough plain and simple.

When I started power lifting I gained 40lbs from 125 to 165 in one year and never had my body fat go over 12%.

In order to get enough calories I eat 8 meals a day about 3 hours apart (including whenever I wake up during the night). 4 of those are shakes one every 6 hours. In between are normal meals except for workout time when it’s a pre and post workout shake. If not for the shakes it would be hard to eat the 2500-3000kCal/day I need to stay 500kCal above maintenance. The 2500-3000kCal range takes into account whether I work and or work out on a given day which both up my requirements which I adjust for accordingly.

One advantage of doing the 4 really 5 shakes if you count pre/post workout is that gives me a set number of kCal/day, about 1700 so I only have to count the extra I need to make up the difference.

It can take some time to dial in exactly how much you need to gain a set amount so when in doubt eat more and monitor your weight gain adjusting down or up as needed. If you don’t already have one Amazon sells some inexpensive skin calipers under $10 so you can monitor your body fat.

As for workout what do you do? Can you squat 1.5 x your body weight or better? I ask because you may not be doing a good workout for bulking. Just eating a lot w/o the right exercises means more of what you gain will be fat if you start eating more.

Cheers,
Dean

Yeah, I think my workout routine is pretty rigorous, or at least has been in the past with somewhat of a slowdown lately. Generally I combine chest and triceps one day, back and biceps another, and legs and shoulders. The fourth day I'll repeat one. Used to do each twice but work schedule hasn't really allowed 6 days in the gym but I could try to squeeze it in. Occasionally I'll just focus hard on one of the planned two muscle groups a day but with a typical 3 workouts a day that hasn't been happening. Workouts used to be an hour and a half with 15 minutes of Light cardio warm up but now they have shrunk to an hour with little to elliptical or treadmill warm up.

I think it boils down to calorie intake like you said. Part of my probably got frustrated over lack of gains so i think my workouts have been trimmed into "staying in shape" instead of "building strength".

What type of shakes do you consume?

I'd be open to specific workout routines or food/shake suggestions and I'd consider re-attempting to bulk up a little.

This website is the best workout resource IMO. There's lots of videos (this workout is really extreme).

Enjoy, guys.
