Do muscles and strength build more from lifting more often or eating more protein and lifting less than often?

Do muscles and strength build more from lifting more often or eating more protein and lifting less than often?

Basically, would lifting 6 days a week the same muscle groups grow them regardless of how much protein I ate?

    Is build from eating more and lifting more.
    If one of them is lagging the the results will be less.

    The more protein you eat, the less you need to lift. If you eat 2.5kg of protein a day you don't need to lift at all

    Hitting a muscle roughly 2 times per week (except for my hamstrings and chest which are once per week) has given me my best results in terms of both strength and size gains. The protein you eat is the building blocks for healing. Frequency of training as it relates to protein intake only matters if you're undereating protein and can't heal fast enough so your frequency goes down

      How much protein should I be eating if I trained 6 days a week?

        How much you train has nothing to do with it.
        You need to eat 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight (your ideal be, not your fat fuck bw).

          Most studies point to 0.8g of protein/kg of BW max. Everything else is just supplement giants feeding myths to sell more whey.

            Fuck, meant 0.8g per lb or 1.8g per kg is considered the toping point.

                I do OMAD and just eat a sweet potato with some flank steak. I drink half a gallon of milk before, and only water after.

                That's not a bad diet. I'm guessing you were pretty fat before?

                The point is you weigh out and count/track food like an autistic kid that can only eat dino nuggies.

      Why hamstrings only once a week? Avoid injury?

      • 4 months ago
        Anonymous

        I found that's all my hamstrings needed. I've tried hitting them twice per week and they never fully recover by the time I do the second session. I'll do 4-5 sets of RDLs and 3-4 sets of Nordic Curls once per week now and that's all they need to grow bigger and stronger week after week

    So long as you get your volume and intensity dialed in it doesn’t matter how many days you lift unless you are advanced then you’ll need to but your compounds on different days to prevent interference

      I got a pretty bare bones routine that has been working for me:

      >3x5 Power clean
      >3x5 Bench
      >3x10 Twist curls

      I go from bench to curls right after with no rest in between. These are just my main lifts, I do some stretches and HIT in the afternoon. I usually do this 3 days but want to try for 6.

    Better question, how do prison morons get shredded and jacked? Isn't prison food dogshit, and is it just meant to fill you up barely?

      I checked a federal prison menu once for what they eat in a month. About 2000kcal from the mess hall per day, about 90g of protein, and enough micros that they won't die. That's what's standard for everyone daily. After that you can buy food from the commissary. Honey buns are the biggest seller but for the guys looking to get jacked they buy cans of tuna and cartons of milk for extra protein. Extra calories come from ramen and honeybuns because they got the most calories for the lowest cost
