yes... i did do a search before posting. info: 20 years old, started lifting first time in my life about 7 weeks ago. I am ~5'5. I was ~150 with a belly then, am ~158 with no belly now. I wokout everyday. I am clean bulking. Questions: background: I know some musles need time to rest, but i do situps everyday. Ive noticed my upper abs coming along nicely, but nothing lower. B/c of this i am moving my ab workout up a level. I will be doing atleast 100 situps, obliques, and as many hanging knee rasies i can everywork out now. Q: Do my abs need rest to develop? Is this over kill? background: I have been clean bulking for a month now, i make sure i eat at least 4K cals a day, and will probibly change to 4.5K this week. My goal is 175LB, 15 Lbs away. I'm in no hurry, and want to gain only muslce. I know if i start Dirty Bulking i will gain weight faster. Q: What are the difference in dirty and clean bulking, i hear it's just better to go with dirty and workout fat you gain. background: I take whey protein for extra protein, about 50 g a day from the powder. Total i get from 180-210 g ever day. Q: Is there problem with uping my protein form powder to over 100 g, making this my primary source of protein? i searched the best i could for these answers, if they have been posted, please direct me to them. If you think you can help, i'd like to hear what you have to say. I know these are pretty specific questions, and a long read, so i'm guessing this probibly won't get too many replies, fine by me, it was worth a shot.
