Hope you like the Chris Evans Workout, If your interested in something a little more full-on, i have done a review of the “MI40 DVD Workout Program”.
The way you learn to lift correctly in this video series is the best investment you can make for your bodybuilding future. I just wish i found it 5 years ago! MI40 isn’t free, but for the price, and with a money back guarantee, you cant go wrong.
First, you need to know the number of calories in order to reach your desired bodyweight. In actuality, there is a formula to come up with that. If you think you have poor math skills, then ask your friendly calculator for help.
For example, you weigh 180 pounds or 81.82 kg and you are thinking about doing workouts for 8 hours a week. With this, your aim is to gain muscles equivalent to 20 pounds to come up with a total of 200 pounds.
So, you will have to multiply 200 with the sum of 9.5 and 8. This results to a total of 3500 calories. So, you need to consume this to begin with. REMINDER: it is vital to monitor your body. If fats begin to build up then you will have to cut down hundreds of calories. This involves a lot of trial and error since each body is unique.
But to get big you need to eat big. Which sounds like fun, I mean who doesn’t love to eat like a lumberjack? The downside is, eating for size can get very tiring and repetitive as Chris discovered.
Thanks to MensFitness.co.uk, here’s Chris’ Captain America meal plan:
To put on muscle without storing excess energy as fat he relied on low-carb protein shakes between meals and snacks of fruits and nuts. He also took branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) throughout the day to minimize muscle breakdown and kick-start growth. Glutamine (to avoid burning muscle as evergy). 500mg of Omega3, 6 and 9 at every meal.
