I'm a new ember to bodybiulding.net and am trying for the one millionth time to bulk up.
i am 36 years of age.
I am 185 lbs wt.5.11 ht.
I have a very fast metabolism. i can eat and eat and eat.
AndI think that has been my problem in the past.
Also a big hurdle for me has been intake of calories.
I sometimes with the job have gone from 10 in the morning to 5pm at night or at least those sort of hours in between without eating.
My physique is one of been very skinny with chicken legs.
Last week I started working out every day.
Cardio every day and legs one day upper body the next,
Sometimes i am doing push one day and pull the next Meaning Bench press ,
bicep curls, push ups, sit ups next day pull downs tricep pull downs etc.
I am lifting as heavy as i can to about 8 reps max 3 times.
I am enjoyibng the workouts but not sure how to go about quickly measuring my caloric intake without becoming a scientist or mathematician.
Any hints to keep a better eye on what i need to take in and how to monitor it easily in the beginning without getting too bogged down.
In the past I'm sure it was not enough calories that caused me to quit due to not seeing results.
Also the postworkout meal which includes whey protein and other stuff.How do I make that?
any info will be great.
