      NEWS: Discord Server & Clubs (aka Groups) are back!   08/19/17

      Hello everyone I'm back with a couple big updates! Firstly we now have a Discord server, this is a real-time chat messaging client you can run on your phone, desktop, or anywhere. It's a pretty powerful desktop application that enables people to chat together, and with multiple channels you can find people interested in what you're interested in. If you don't already have a Discord account it's pretty easy to get one, just click the following invite link to get started: https://discord.gg/Ahzu9jC Secondly I'm proud to announce the return of Groups, it's been renamed to Clubs and is now available here: https://muscle-growth.org/clubs/. This system is entirely user generated and allows users to create groups of their own based on any subject they want. Go ahead and try it now, visit the link above to get started if you want to create or join a group!   As always thank you to all of our donators and Patreon contributors who keep the forums going! 

Support from you partner?

Recommended Posts

I got a question can a partner/love one have a affect on yourself when training and how well you gain muscle?

My reason is that my partner is giving me zero support here and I do feel like it is affecting in a way. I did make it very clear my reason why I wanted to take part in a body transformation challenge as I wanted to make a change in life to build a strong and confidence person and I always had an interest in bodybuilding which is why I wanted to take it to the next level this year. My aim for this year to build up my body like a fitness/underwear model type once I reach that goal I will think about where I want to do next. Also when it comes to sorting out my diet/ nutrition I get a very negatived response its difficult as I need to eat to be able to grow but I want to eat right food not junk food which my partner is happy to buy.

I don't want to break up just need some advice on the best way of moving forward or is it selfish of me wanting to gain muscles and live a healthy lifestyle after nearly ending up as an alcoholic last year.

My view is that if you are truly soul mates and you don't want to break-up then it's a matter of finding a path forward. Most bodybuilders I know are obsessive with food + workouts and generally have a routine that's not flexible to the point of being a little OCD. That commitment can often result in a partner feeling slightly neglected. Your challenge is listening, paying attention to your partner and what's going on in their life. Meal issues can be an issue so I'd let him eat what he wants and you stick to your diet. Usually I find if you cook something and spice it up they will eat what you have. I've always found that with previous Bfs and my partner that their diet is cleaner when they are around me - like osmosis. Keep talking it all works out.
