    If you have dumbbells you can still do legs.

    Goblet squats
    Bulgarian/split squats
    Lunges and all their variants
    Weighted step ups
    Dumbbell leg curls
    Calf raises
    Dumbbell deadlifts

    It actually (sort of) contradicts the current consensus, which is that older men should reduce our protein intakes (while upping veggie intake) to prolong life and avoid cancer, so yeah, this is interesting.

    Number one thing is keeping your weight down: protein ratios, lean body comps, or otherwise. Keep the BMI down.

    Your legs account for over half of your body. You're doing this wrong. You also don't have any core exercises.

    I recently came across an article citing some old studies about protein.

    "• Tarnopolsky et al. (1992) observed no differences in whole body protein synthesis or indexes of lean body mass in strength athletes consuming either 0.64g/lb or 1.10g/lb over a 2 week period. Protein oxidation did increase in the high protein group, indicating a nutrient overload.
    • Walberg et al. (1988) found that 0.73g/lb was sufficient to maintain positive nitrogen balance in cutting weightlifters over a 7 day time period.
    • Tarnopolsky et al. (1988) found that only 0.37g/lb was required to maintain positive nitrogen balance in elite bodybuilders (over 5 years of experience, possible previous use of androgens) over a 10 day period. 0.45g/lb was sufficient to maintain lean body mass in bodybuilders over a 2 week period. The authors suggested that 0.55g/lb was sufficient for bodybuilders.
    • Lemon et al. (1992) found no differences in muscle mass or strength gains in novice bodybuilders consuming either 0.61g/lb or 1.19g/lb over a 4 week period. Based on nitrogen balance data, the authors recommended 0.75g/lb.
    • Hoffman et al. (2006) found no differences in body composition, strength or resting hormonal concentrations in strength athletes consuming either 0.77g/lb or >0.91g/lb over a 3 month period."

    Why? Those guys who find it impossibly difficult to add mass testify en masse what an incredibly simple and effective program it is for them to follow.

    You think scarecrows are at risk for diabetes or something? Get real.

    I work out almost every day.... sometimes every day of the week...honestly at this point I dont know work out for looks or to break any personal record, I dont have "goals" at the gym...I just work out because of how I feel while working out, its like my personal time that I enjoy every day... I try to eat clean but I really dont think I diet, I think I look strong but I dont have a six pack nor do I care to have one.

    When I start drinking those protein powders on shakes I feel I bulk up too much and with a shirt I look fat... even though I dont care too much about looks I dont want to look fat either so I decided not to take them... maybe I'll try again sometime because I do understand protein helps build muscles and thats what I do everyday but that was my experience with protein last time. Maybe I would have to diet better in order to build good muscle but nahhh I rather eat what I like, work out every day (since I enjoy doing it anyways) and forget about protein shakes (since I get all bulked up and look fat) I think for now Im fine this way

    A gallon of milk a day to bulk up sounds crazy to me. If you're taking in 2400 additional calories per day, you're going to get fat in a hurry.

    I always thought we just shit most of it out considering naturally you can only gain .5lbs of muscle mass per week.

    It's definitely not hormones in the milk. The levels even were the milk contaminated are beyond insignificant.

    That's the point. Those guys don't have issues with burning fat. Bring the fat, bring the gain.

    More than anything those guys just need to get used to feeling radically different than how they're accustomed to feeling. They must discover a new definition of, "I'm full." Boiling it down to something as simple as an added gallon of milk doesn't let them escape to vague and indeterminate self-assessments of, "I ate a lot today." Did you get that gallon down?

    No?

    You didn't eat shit, scarecrow. Calories, calories, calories. Corned beef hash!!

    While muscle comes a lot slower, fat can be gained pretty quick. I was "winging it" on bulking up a little over a year ago when I started working out seriously again. Ended up 12lbs heavier after a month, so roughly 10 of that had to be fat...or 2lbs per week of fat.

    You won't get big and bulky just from doing squats and deadlifts.

    No legs? Wtf? At least do squats and deadlifts. If you got back or not want to fuck with those do calf raises and leg press and calf machine. Also leg curls

    it may just be me, but that look is ridiculous. i'm all about lifting and being in shape, as i personally feel i am, but the proportions on each of those guys seems to be off.

    It's just the annoying hair styles that are distracting.
