11:00 - two country fried steaks, mashed potatoes, corn and two rolls - not
sure of the nutritional values here

12:00 - no explode
1-2 workout(monday-friday)
2:00 PWO drink torrent - 20g protein
2:45 2 scoops optimum nutrition whey - 50g protein
4:00 dinner, usually load up on anything in the cafeteria i can find, eat as much as possible here

6:00 2 scoops optimum nutrition whey, 50g's pro.

8:00 go eat another meal, usually go to my girlfriends house and eat whatever they had for dinner haha

10:00 bedtime, 4 scoops of universal real gains 800 calories, 60 g protein (casein, whey, egg proteins)

been doing this for about 4 months and went from 6'6" 190 to 242 (minimal fat gain) along with a bench press increase from 185 to 285.. my weight gains are slowing down i guess i better eat some more freaking food haha.. i'm 18 and in college so i have to take advantage of the cafeteria since there's not a whole lot of time to eat.. the times are above are the approx. times of when i eat, working around my schedule.. i'm usually done with class around 1 but i was just wondering if there were any easy ways to snack or something i could carry with me and eat on the go..a guy i workout out with at the gym is 6'4" 270 and he says for snacks he just eats two or three packs of turkey or chicken from the walmart deli a day, and there's like 60 grams of protein in those so i might do that, but i was just wondering what u guys do to get in some extra cals and protein.

Whatever you get at the cafeteria, get 2 of. That's the easiest way to increase calories. Also, try eating more whole food and less shakes. Whole food is a much faster and easier way to gain weight. The shakes are fine, but food is better.

I'm sure they have a milk machine, hard boiled eggs, varieties of cereals... EAT then get back up and EAT more.

Postworkout, down a quart or two of chocolate milk.

Add a tablespoon (or 2 or 3) of extra virgin olive oil to your shakes. 110 calories and healthy monounsaturated fats per Tspoon

dude the canned chicken idea might not be the healthiest choice. I was eating canned chicken for a while without even realizing it was 310mg of sodium per serving and it was 6 servings. soo watch out son.

Higher carbs, Depending on your workout routine, its needed. Try some noodles, I dont use much wheat when I train for Hypertrophy. Replace some of the protein shakes with actual meals, Personally, Nothing beats food.

Calorie counter is nice too, At your weight 3,500-4,000 calories a day of a lean diet would put on muscle, no matter what people say, Eating to much = fat. Finding what your body can handle is a must.
Remember 1g protein = 4 cal 1g Carb = 4 cal 1g fat = 9 cal 1g Alcohol = 7 empty cal stay away from the fat and alc :) lol

Just wanna make sure it's not a typo...You gained 52 lbs in 4 months???

For extra cals/protein, try corned beef hash. 1 can is ~800 cals, ~40g protein, and it costs like a dollar (well at least here).

52 lbs though....I gained half that in 4 months, that's crazy.

thats a bulk my friend, keep at it.

i agree with rhodes, whole foods are more satisying and more calories, also, focus on carbs.

Ctwice, was just wondering what weightlifting routine you were using during your bulk phase. My body type is very similar to your body type, 6'4'' 200 lbs looking to hit 220lbs+.

yea bro monday was back, tuesday chest, wednesday legs, thursday biceps, friday triceps shoulders..

on back days i just did lat pulldowns, dumbbell rows, bent over rows and deadlifts.. 3-4 sets of heavy heavy weight on each 6-8 reps

chest day did heavy bench, 20, 10, 5, 3 and then 5 sets of 1 with my max (added 5 pounds every week to the 5 sets of 1 with spotter bench went from 185 now i'm sitting on 295), flyes, cable crossovers, dumbbell incline press
same 3-4 sets of 6-8 reps with heavy weight

legs 4x5 squats, 4x8 leg press, 3x10 leg curls and extensions, 3x15 calf raises

biceps 3x6 dumbbell curls, 3x6 barbell curls, tri-set 3x12 with hammer curls, cable curls, machine curls

triceps just differed every week, but still the same 4x6-8 with heavy weights and at the end of workout did a 5xdropset of tricep pushdowns.shoulders military press, front raises, lateral raises

if u need any other info just ask and good luck bro, and don't forget to always be eating, even if you're not hungry

IMO you gained massive strength in four months, it was way worth the added fat. Are you going to cut and bulk again, or are you still bulking? Good luck to you too bro and thanks again for the workout. I have one question though, would I be okay using your routine now? Or should I use Rippetoe's and after my lifts get stronger use your routine?

i haven't done a cut yet, i'll prolly cut when i get to 280 or 300... you could easily reap the benefits of just going ahead and using my routine.. but to get the full benefit you have to lift as heavy as possible using good form doing 6-8 reps..if you're not giving it all you've got on every rep you're not gaining anything. good luck on your bulk
