Adding more protein does build more muscles
Damn is all i can say when i weighted myself this morning, at 5 feet 10 i weight in at 215 pounds and my waiste size is still the same 36 inches but i seem to have gained a good 7 pounds in the last 2 months.
Changes that i did where that i added more egg whites to my diet around 6 a day, 2 whey protein shake mixed in Soya milk and soy nuts for snakes.
I am tired of fighting with my weight at 33 years old now i havent been able to get below 200 pounds ever since i did my steroid cycle in 1999.
Deca and enhentate where the base went from 194 to around 204 in 8 weeks.
And since i am still dealing with back pain i cant do impact training, meaning no cardio for the time being, doc even took me off the bike YAGGGG.

No cardio at all? How is a recumbent bike (back supported) or an eliptical/stationary bike going to hurt you?

What about using the treadmill for some inclined walking? For 45 mins a day, 5-6 times a week. Am sure it can't be that hard on the back?

Thanks guys but my pelvic region gets real tight when i do thoses, probem with back pain is not bone related but posture and damn right side that always goes into spams.
Went bike riding with girlfriend and did a lot of elleptic cardio last week the pain was worst so he made me quit this til i finish my posture rehab exercice.
Behind the neck barbell press looking up 3 sets of 15 reps slow i use 40 pounds
bent db rows looking up 7.5 pounds for 3 sets of 15 reps
close grip seated rows i use 60 pounds for 3 X 15 reps
all of thoses work on my upper back posture
Adductors inside machine to get the pelvic and inside leg stronger i do 15 sets times 3 with 150 pounds so its getting pertty good.
Twist machine 2 sets of 25 with 30 pounds.
cable crunch 3 sets of 15 with 60 pounds.
all of this is done everyday to strenghten all that region and get rid of the damn pain.
When this is done hopefully i will be able to start real training again, lifting heavy and losing 10 pounds or so.

Arm ergometer is another option. It sucks though.

Swimming is a great option what does suck is that i don't have no swimming pool near my house big enought so i can swim long distance, my old gym add one but it would cost me beleive it or not nearly 400$ for a yearly subscription, SUCKS.
This summer i will try to find a lake and swim in it when i am on vacation
