Yeah. That's the killer part. Few people realize that I like working out but all that eating, takes a lot of time. Also in the long run is a bit tough on the body, such as the kidneys - esp. the necessarily high-protein diet. So I'm back to skinny
hes not 'THAT' buff.. hes just lean.. sure hes muscular but I doubt he eats like a Trojan. His diet is probably just very strict and not necessarily extremely high in protein. Anyway, a high protein diet and exercise is a lot easier on the body than a high fat, high sugar diet
Depends on his body type. If he's naturally lean he's probably a hard gainer and needs to eat a lot to add on the muscle mass. If he gains muscle easy he probably needs to watch his fat/caloric intake to stay this cut. My guess is the former. Yeah, I agree, lots of junk food and sugar is definitely worse. I was thinking compared to a healthy balanced diet in lower volume.
Try switching out bench presses for dumbbell presses and flies for a bit. Less impressive because you use less weight, but you hit more areas of the pecs. Then add bench back in, remembering not to bounce (less weight with slow descend and all-controlled movement always harder). Weighted dips also good for lower pecs (leaning forward for more use of pecs, staying straight up for more use of tris).
