    Why are you gaining weight? What is your goal? I would say 4K calories is to many

    The weight you are putting on is mostly fat. You are adding muscle, but you are also adding fat. You don't look overweight.

    Drop the calories to whatever number you maintain at. You should be a great candidate for recomping or “gaintaining”. Someone with your stats does NOT need to gain weight to gain muscle, OP. Just focus on getting stronger. If you’re gaining strength, you’re almost guaranteed to be adding muscle.

    yup verbatim what I was thinking. I mean if he was doing a meet in 5 months and in between weight classes bumping up to the higher weight class would make more sense than cutting and risk losing strength

    Thanks mate. The reason i eat so much is because I'm not getting stronger. I wanted to eliminate diet as the root cause of my issues.

    He's said his routine is SS, so obviously that is the problem. Though you could argue the caloric intake is consistent with that

    ya so your training /routine sucks. 138 bench is pretty low. Not even close to body weight. Even if you ate like trash but not gained your lifts could be much higher

    1. Bad form this can be a huge road block

    2. Inconsistent workouts, skipping leg day or a whole day of lifting a week

    3. Not adding weight weekly even if it’s only a few pounds

    4. Poorly structured routine, not doing assisted lifts. Like say you have a weak lower back, if you don’t strengthen that your deadlift and squat will suffer

    5. Poor sleep

    I have to agree with this...

    I weigh about 150lb at 6 feet tall and i'm like 11% bodyfat right now...

    But our squat numbers are the same, I'm a bit stronger on deads, and I can out bench you on 5x5 by about 20lb...


    Something isn't adding up here
    The power of carbs compels me!
