comment Why is muscle size not proportional to strength?
So what energy system does hypotrophy training utilise? Some kind of hybrid between the oxygen & glucose energy systems? I've always thought that all weight training was indiscriminately placed under the anaerobic banner.

Do you mean "LOW reps with high weights" in your opening sentence?

comment Completing all sets in a weightlifting routine
@dato there is nothing magical about 8 reps. I'm not fully sure I understand your question but yes go ahead and take a look at stronglifts.com. Its one of many good beginner programs

comment How can I consume more calories without feeling bloated?
@adrian drinking water with and around your meals can contribute to the feeling of being bloated. Don't drink any water 15 minutes before a meal and not for 1 hour afterwards. Your stomach acid needs to stay acidic to digest your food! Don't forget to drink lots at other times.

@Levinaris -1 why is this being up voted. It screams "SCAM". I gained 6 pounds of muscle in one particular month and I was very excited!!

comment What's my GDA to lose weight?
Depends on your definition of 'fit'. 'Fit' to some guys means being slender and being able to fit into skinny jeans. 'Fit' to me means lean & strong. @Sancho is right - 189 in itself doesn't sound too bad for 5'11".

Nice. The only other thing I'd add is triceps (like biceps) respond to volume. So do 5-10 (yes TEN) sets on the cable extensions with no more than 2 minutes rest until your triceps feel like they are going to fall off.

comment What are the foods that are low in fat but high in calories?
Your metabolism clearly seems to be able to handle carbohydrates really well (which you aren't happy with). Try indulging in more fats.
