working within ideal parameters, on a normal (6 months each or 3 months each???) bulking/cutting cycle, how long would it take to add 25 lbs of muscle post-cut? My first gains were ~15 lbs after 20 weeks (2 HST cycles), but I'm assuming the majority of those gains were noob gains. I know there are a lot of variables that I need to consider, but just wanted a best case scenario (no anabolics). Next, how do I work out my hamstrings. I started off with hamstring curls on a machine, but stopped. I've been doing straight-back straight-leg deadlifts for a couple of months now. http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/Hamstrings/BBStrBackStrLegDeadlift.html The thing is, it feels like only my semitendinosus is growing, while the long head remains a tiny little muscle fuck. If I recall correctly, although deadlifts are a compound exercise, they are supposed to "target" the hamstrings. However, the exrx site says the hamstrings are just stabilizers http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/GluteusMaximus/BBDeadlift.html I guess the question is, what exercise should I do to work out my hamstrings correctly/evenly? Those are the only questions for now, I'm sure I'll think of more stupid shit to ask later on. Thanks.
