Yep, at some point you have to get away from the analysis and just get back to the basics.

Congrats so far.

Good job....keep up the good work. More people would do better with gains if they shut off the computer for a couple months and just go do the stuff that is said over and over again...and listen to your body.

This is reviveing a pointless thread but I felt like checking in I have been rediculousely buisy and have a wife and kid on the way since last year.... I am verry happy.

That beeing said I have also gained 30 pounds since 09/08 and am significantly stronger. While I am not as lean as I was The weight I have gained has been pretty clean maybe a 5% increase in BF.

I took your advice George I just trained ate and got as much sleep as possible learning to rest enough has been key. I have done primarily strength and hypertrophy work but a little of everything was mixed in.

Also to be on track with this thread I am just more comfortable IFing and eat when I am hungry I have no problem getting the caalories in or recovering but I will often get hungry early in the day or late... I really don't care if I am hungry I eat... It just so happens I tend to not get hungry till after I work out which is sometimes after my first run of clients around 1pm.
