Feedback Requested - Help with goals

Actually I just want to hit those numbers in my lifts while staying at roughly the bodyfat I am now, which is right around 20% - and which I wouldn't consider low. I don't need to get leaner - but I don't want to get sloppy.

What about, say, 8oz skim milk with each of my pre and post workout shakes? That'll bump my carbs up quite a bit and put my work out day calories right around 3500. I have definitely noticed that some carbs about a half hour before my workout helps me through it.

Re: Feedback Requested - Help with goals

Dub, Hoose, thanks for the responses. Here are my answers to Dub's questions. Q: Are you pushing progress? (i.e. are you adding reps, sets or weight to your lifts) A: I add weight but keep sets and reps stable. Lower body gets a fiver each time, upper gets a 5 or a 2.5. I'll be microloading upper bo...

Re: Feedback Requested - Help with goals

Hoosegow, Thanks for the response. My goal is just to 300/400/500. I think that's what pisses me off so much. Everyone on the internet wants to get cut and jacked, or massively huge, or whatever. I have what I consider pretty modest strength goals (except the bench), and modest appearance goals (mos...

How old are you? If you're a young man the solution would be different than if you're an old woman. I'm guessing it's the former. " I ate 2400 calories by noon today, with plenty of protein.
