I adopted the primal eating lifestyle about six weeks ago and started the strong lifts program about five weeks ago. I'm fairly strong for my size, but started with pretty low weight as suggested (i think) by the program. And so far, it's been great. I've progressed nicely, but it's only now starting to become somewhat challenging. Likely, I started out a little light, but i wanted to focus on form and progression.
I currently weigh about 145 and would like to get to about 160. I haven't done strength training in earnest in about six years as i have competed in variance endurance racing over that time period. So, to make a long story short, I'm looking for advice regarding a simple plan that i can regularly execute to get the extra 15 lbs. My understanding so far is that i should be targeting 1.2g protein/lb...and I think i'm doing pretty good with that. But I'm only up 1-2 lbs over the past five weeks.
Further thoughts/advice anyone?
