    Would make it a lot easier if people are posting their diets for such periods, along with their workouts during the same time. Very easy way to deduct how much of the growth is lean muscle.

    Pro athletes can see larger/quicker growths whilst being lean as they are working on their craft full time, can burn off the calories, and being able to afford the amount of food to achieve such goals.

    Either way, when Ive worked with body builders, if they are gaining weight, they arent trying to build 100% lean muscle, the cutting phase takes care of that. The argument isint that the growth is 100% fat, its most likely not going to be 100% lean muscle (get some skin fold callipers to show your fat measurements would help show this anyways)

    Well, he always ate a lot so nothing changed too much in that regard.

    Man, I just wish I could get my diet in check to make some real gains in the gym. Mine's so ****, I'm stuck at a 195-200lb range, and slowly whittling down my BFI... But if I do too much HIIT, my body crashes. My caloric intake is not consistent, and tends to be low as I'm literally a starving entrepreneur. I pretty much live off 2 cans of tuna with crackers, a bowl of pasta, and 6 eggs a day.

    Yep same boat as you, money really screws me up. Im leaning down (at about 180 ish, want to get to 170 for sports) but needing to keep up with the protein. Everything cheap is carberrific, and my metabolism is too quick to just go cheap salads/soups, I just get too hungry too quickly.

    Saying that im having a Dominoes after im done with work.

    Being on the cheap side, any time food is presented to me, no matter how unhealthy it may be, if it's free, I scarf it down. Definitely doesn't do my goals any good. :/

    It's also very difficult forcing myself to eat all my meals, when they're this ****ing bland. OMFG I hate my diet.

    Incline dumbbell press. Incline dumbbell flys. Cable cross overs.

    know of any good body weight ones? Inclining my bench is always annoying and I don't own a cable cross machine.

    Putting my feet up on the bench and doing pushups to simulate inclines?

    Angled pushups like you suggested. There's a way to do something similar to flys in a doorway or narrow hallway. Dips can also hit the pectorals in different ways depending on how you lean.

    I've got dip stands and use it often, I should start leaning forward then I'd assume?

    Leaning forward works the pectorals more, yes. It also puts a bit of strain on your shoulders though.

    Ah okay,
    Okay, thanks for the heads up. I've got a messed up shoulder from years of handball (New York, not European) I'll give it a shot.
