    Thank you! I do not deadlift or squat enough! Only once a week each.
    At the end of the day that is still better than most but yeah if you want to put on some serious size you will definitely need to put some work into growing your lower body. Most people won't put on 20 pounds of mass on their upper body alone.

    I mention that in one of my youtube videos - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhLRQxLXYQw

    How clean do you eat? Nutrition is a HUGE factor when it comes to growth.
    Are you eating well? Are you eating enough?
    If you're not already calculate you're daily recommended intake of macros and start roughly tracking your calories

    I did stronglifts 5x5 for about 4 or 5 months of training three times a week (and eating whatever I wanted to frequently) before I got bored and switched.

    Stats (one rep maxes):
    DL 60kg-145kg
    Squat 50kg-100kg
    Bench 35kg-72.5kg
    Row 40kg-60kg
    OHP 35kg-45kg

    and I went from weighing 61 kg to 69 kg
    Wow that's impressive ! Well done! I'm hoping for something similar !

    I'm eating clean, i get roughly around 3000 calories today. I got a mass gainer from ON which is helping I'm putting on just under a kg a week but I think this well be reduced soon. Thanks I'll calculate my daily recommended intake of macros.

    Tbh I think it was more 67 kilos as that's what I weighed in the mornings. And it's not that much really, I just made sure I increased the amount I ate and followed the programme strictly. I'd just bring an extra lunch box to lunch or have another little meal at the end of the day so not really much at all. Beginner gains are the best gains.

    I was describing the weight increase. Deadlifting 145 is a lot at 69kg! Yes you only need an extra meal or two and can rack on mass consistently! They're the best kind

    1kg a week is too much.

    1 pound is where you want to be.

    I fasted for a month and then had food poisoning so I think the results are skewed because I wasn't at my natural weight. It should be around a pound now, thanks.
