Hello, I am 42 and 3+ years into crossfit. My problem is that regardless of what I do, I have a very tough time gaining weight (muscle or fat). I’ve eaten like a pig, I’ve eaten clean and dirty. I do exercise between 4 and 7 times a week and the workouts are pretty grueling.
I’m also digestively sensitive. Regarding protein, anything other than grassfed plain whey creates stinky effects. Artificial sweeteners and stevia also wreck me.
Lately I’ve committed myself to cleaner eating, plain grassfed protein, leucine and ZMA at night. A daily multivitamin with fish oil too.
My goal is to get bigger and stronger. My back squat has been stuck for almost a year! I do have excellent coaching and instruction. We had Sean Waxman give us a local seminar at one point.
Recommended to me (from Biotest support) was Plazma with Micro-PA.
Any other suggestions would be fantastic. I do have a full time job and support a young family. Translate to… at the end of the day, I don’t have tons of time to do prep. I’m sure I have forgotten some relevant detail but I think this sums me up fairly well.
