Since Friday I had been getting to 300g of protein with the help of protein supplements. Maybe I could get a meal replacement supplement with higher carbs? Maybe have something you recommend in your nutrition section, I'll go check

I'll throw on sweats next time I deadlift and be sure to get my hips up. Those are things I can fix. To be honest I was worried if my hips had been too high (I had been told this in the past), so I am glad to hear they are not because I am quite certain that my hips coming up in the lift will be less of an issue if not a non-issue if my back is set at the start with my hips a little higher. Actually pretty excited to try that the next time I train the deadlift! Thank you very much for the advice!

You are welcome. The easiest sources are rice, potatoes, pasta, fruits, cereals and then adding dextrose to your post-workout protein shake. Post up your next deadlift, you have been leaving weight on the bar.

He gained weight and stopped adding weight to the bar. He was getting calories but undereating carbohydrates. I suspect this will sort itself out if he follows my instructions.
