Hi everyone, I've not been on here in over a year but i'm gonna try my hardest to reach my goals this year (get bigger).

I'm currently 5ft10ins and 145lb 22yrs old.
My training is:
day 1: chest and triceps (abs)
day 2: back and biceps
day 3: legs and shoulders (abs)

my diet is:
meal 1: protein shake
meal 2: 5 egg whites 1 whole egg and 3 turkey rashers
meal 3: 100g pasta and 1 chicken breast
meal 4: 1cup of rice and 200g mince beef
meal 5: 100g pasta and tin of tuna
meal 6: protein shake (before bed)

this works out to be around 3000cal a day and 200g protein. My body needs 1700cal a day to mantain the weight I'm at. I try to snack on cashew nuts and whole organic milk during the day too.

My question is do you think this is too much of a clean diet for a bulk? I've put on 5lbs since 1/1/2010 but only 1lb in the last week.

Any help would be apreciated

So far you have gained 6 pounds in three weeks. That is bout right for a new lifter looking to gain weight. Only you will know,track your calories and weight. Reevaluate in 30 days.

If you start gaining too much fat, eat less. Doesn't matter what we think. You know what happens to your body.

I think your training routine sounds worse than your diet since you're only hitting every muscle group once a week.
