try to find your maintenance calories using a calculator (CalorieKing - How Many Calories Should You Eat) and eat 500 above it.

Guarantee you'll make some strength gains

No such thing as heavy dumbbells and cheap gym.

Club16 = 90lbs. Anytime Fitness = 100lbs.

Best bet might be dropping in ($5/time) at Canada Games Pool in New Westminster. IIRC they have some really heavy dumbbells. (Also has 4 cages, and an Olympic lifting platform with tons of weight and bumper plates)

Weird I'm in the same boat. Same IF routine. My lifts are going up, I'm getting stronger, but my bench is still weak.

Are you doing the lean gains training, or just doing your own thing?

I haven't done biceps for 3 weeks and just for the hell of it decided a set after my normal compound routine. Lifted 45's like I'd normally do 35's..but bench is still weak lol

if your lifts aren't going up it boils down to two things that feed off each other

1. technique
2. frequency

if you're not practicing enough (frequency) you won't develop your technique. also hitting the main muscles involved in the lift with certain accessories will help. lats > (pulldown, chins/pullups), tricep > (cgbp, dips) etc

Not necessarily bad for your heart but all protein and no fibre... Your ass will not be happy with you. Did the same thing when I didn't know how to diet properly and ended up constipated

Just having protein for lunch is fine... It's the same as taking a protein shake and not eating anything else, its not going to affect your heart. Your friends are broscientists.

my advice to anyone is to never listen to anything anyone says about lifting/nutrition without some sort of scientific proof. and even with that proof...read the journal article lol
