1st..well done; great questions- awesome answers. So, good I've been coming here for almost a year and haven't been able to think of anything worth while to ask. Now. I've been on a HST-only routine since I started reading this site, save one bout of single factor 5x5. Each cycle, it seems, my routine changes a little to encourage results. I eat a little cleaner. I add a few hundred cals. More careful and longer SD Etc.. I'm eating frozen meals that I prepared earlier in the month, so I always have properly partitioned macro ratios. My pre and post shakes have glucose added according to the faqs. I'm up to 2875cal-3000cal total each day. The actual training is evolving also. It's still a vanilla 3x a week workout, but now it's only compounds for me. I was a competitive triathlete for several years. As a results boosting measure, I've given up my rigorous cardio training regimine. That was hard to do. I think that my strength levels are in a great place. Here's whats wrong...none of this has produced any results so far. My first instinct is to add more cals. No problem, but I have to wonder why I haven't seen any size gains at all. Shouldn't I have gotten a little bigger. 6'0" 177lbs chest 43" waist 34" biceps 15.5" That's before HST, and after. My lifts have all skyrocketed. My calorie intake has skyrocketed. Could this have anything to do with my previous training? What am I missing here??? I'm not giving up.
