Eat some more, chicken is great - personal fav.
Go to the gym and work out, not just sometimes, 3 or 4 times a week. You'll add mass and then shape it to get a nice body.

You're involving factors that don't necessarily need to be involved. What child going through puberty is going to want to know the amount of protein intake they need? Most people that ask these questions are post-pubescent, and if you want to build muscle and recover at the fastest possible rate (which just makes sense anyways, why would you want slower progress?) You need way more protein then just 40-60 grams a day.

Well it's the national guard component while I'm in college, and while ibhavent gone to basic yet I've still been in student flight for about 6 months. The experience so far has been amazing and I can't wait until basic. From what I've been told, it's a piece of cake as long as you can follow basic instructions. I'm sure the army isn't so different.

- also forgot to say, my point wasn't directed to athletes/bodybuilders/strength athletes. It was more to the general population.
But shit, man I can get away with 90g of protein a day and have as quick muscle gain as when I was on 240g a day. That said my muscle gain is snails pace gain now because I've been training for a long time. It's very individual. Many factors play a role.
#545 - marinepenguin (02/25/2015) [-]
I've been talking for bodybuilders and weightlifters the whole time. Granted I've only been in for a few years, but I've gone from string bean at 145 to pretty built at 205. My protein intake has been pretty steady at about 150 grams every day.
Just curious though, how long have you been lifting, and how much are you weighing?
#548 - lordofpenis (02/25/2015) [-]
3 years, but am a powerlifter. I weigh 176lbs atm, I'm 11% bodyfat, 5'10, I was 105kg (231lbs) at 20% bodyfat about 7 months ago until I got bored of being fat and bloated.
My big 3 are (1RMs):
Bench : 142.5kg(313lbs) , squat: 205kg(451lbs) (high bar, but only to parallel, my flexbility has gotten worse due to an injury so can't do ATG anymore), deadlift: 245kg ( 539lbs)
To be fair, I am rather light, 80kg BW isn't a lot, that said I'm not trying to gain muscle, I'm eating to lose fat (chronic dieting gave me hypothryoidism as well! I'm getting thryoid medication ) but I found that I could go by with just 80g of protein at the start and still gain that 30kg I gained - I started at 55kg 5'9, (121lbs)
That said, you're 19, I'm 18 (nearly 19) so we're far from done with puberty, ha. Guess we'll have to wait a while longer to see what happens.

Only 3 years and not even focused on building muscle? You could easily put on another 30 pounds of muscle. You aren't even close to your potential yet. I'm aiming for 240 in the next 10 years. I'm still around 14% body fat even with a 60 pound bulk. Being more physique focused, my numbers aren't as impressive. I'm 6'3, and I don't even know my 1 RM for my lifts. I rarely go below 5 reps.
#552 - lordofpenis (02/25/2015) [-]
;) I like the whole frank yang thing, when he was skinny but strong as shit.
I seriously doubt I'd put on another 30lbs, unless I cycled some, I know guys who've trained for 15 years and gone through bulk and cut cycles and are leanest and biggest at around my weight, never able to break through that, it's a highly individual thing and there's no fucking way im bulking again unless I have my t3, I was nearly prediabetic last bulk (dat thrifty phenotype)
I'm shit at gaining muscle tbf, I'm great at gaining strength. I don't want to be bigger anymore anyway, I want to compete in the 75kg weight class, my wilkis coefficent was shit at 105kg lol
Training 1RM's on and off, though, is great for muscle building, you increase your neural adaptations quicker, become more confident under the bar, increase joint adaptations and so can handle far more weight on higher reps. There was once a time when I wanted just muscle, but I grew out of that. Costs too much, bulking has its own risks too, I have a family history of genetically pre disposed diabetes (type 2 - pancreatic disorders that are of genetic origin) so attempting to gain muscle without careful control and drugs is a bad idea for me
I'm great at getting shredded though
#554 - marinepenguin (02/25/2015) [-]
I think you are severely underestimating your bodies potential. At 5'10, you could easily reach at LEAST 190 while staying shredded. Especially given 10 years. The fact that you reached near diabetic levels during your last bulk shows that it was just a crappy bulk. Not that you struggle at building muscle. We're both young, we haven't reached even close to our potentials just yet. You really seem to have the physiology and biology part of it down, but sometimes things work totally different in practice.

To increase BUN to an unnecessary level, or to increase protein synthesis in the liver? Or increase gluconeogensis?
Skeletal muscle is mostly water and other osmotic elements that maintain cellular pressure.
You can only increase protein synthesis so much. I'm not saying 60g of protein a day is optimal for a weightlifter, I'm saying that the average person is fine with as little as 60g a day, so long as all essential amino acids are met, & muscle can be grown on that little, because you're increasing other elements of it, the size increase is mostly due to cellular volume increases, not an increase in protein content.
But obviously, an athlete that trains 2x a day, at high intensities, with progressive overload that's taxing the muscles to an extent that there's a need for contractile proteins and other structures like enzymes, channels, receptors and so on, will need more protein. A weightlifter; more so. A weightlifter that is also doping with drugs that increase the rate of protein synthesis? Even more.
But I want you to experiment a little - lower your protein intake, keep the energy intake the same, for a month or a few, drop to 70-100g. You may find you still gain muscle, even at the same rate! It's all varied on your own training style, hormone status (e.g. if you dope or if you have a tumour or are on the physiological high end for any anabolic/androgenic hormone with a normal number of receptors for that hormone) and other factors.
I just want to state that it's fine to go on 60g of protein a day for your average man. Your muscles don't use as much as you think, this is becoming more and more apparent with new studies. Even as a weightlifter, there's no magic number; just what you need. More is not always better, your kidneys will agree, so will your wallet.
