I'm gaining strength. But my weight is not changing. I have been stuck on 164lbs for a month now. But my body shape is getting more defined and muscular.

I think you're right, some days I think I'm eating enough but I'm not. That's where tracking would help.

God damn, if I can take a pic of my food and the phone app would tell me how many calories are there. 5min per meal, for 5-6 meals a day, it's about 15min for tracking.

No based on your pics there is no way you are an ectomorph. I know several ectomorph's personally and you don't match the bodytype.

It is possible to be a mix of the three body types, but I think you aren't getting the calories you think you are (or tracked them incorrectly).

I'm pinpoint accurate on training days for tracking, because to me thats when it matters the most. On rest days I only track to make sure I'm not overeating and keeping my carbs low (to avoid fat gain & increase insulin sensitivity).

If you have a food scale (or read the packaging) its incredibly easy to track homemade meals, you know what it is in them. Once they are in your phone, you can just adjust the serving size.

When I cook for multiple meals (spaghetti sauce for instance) I scoop with a measuring cup instead of a ladle, so I know how many cups I added.

Simple tricks make it much less bothersome, as well as much more accurate.

Sounds like your tracking methods are pretty awesome. I was wondering how i was going to be accurate in tracking mine, I'll see what i can learn from your methods.

im waiting for some free time to write up a serious guide (from what I've been educated with) for beginner & intermediate lifters of different types.

I'll add a tracking section with my tips & tricks from practical experience... I have a food diary on myfitnesspal (dabears318 if you use it) that has pretty much every single meal for the past ~6 months. And it doesn't weigh on my life!

Legs. I did not think the workout would be intense enough, but could barely walk. Low rep high weights on front squats, high rep low weights on back squats seem like a perfect combo.

Front squats

2 x 4 155lbs

Back squats
3 x 15 145lbs

Lying ham curls
3 x 8 110lbs

Seated Calves
3 x 10 90lbs

My body had plenty of strength to keep going even on 295lbs DL, but my forearms literally were burning. So I'll either live with current limits or maybe get straps. What you do you suggest?

Any specific straps and guides on using them? Straps will benefit me more so I can use them on pulldowns and pull-ups as well.
