Hello all, I have visited this site many times, but just now got an account. Since November 3rd I have been on a bulking diet, recording what I eat and also my lifting routines. I'm 19 and have been lifting for the last 3 years, always 160 lbs, 5' 10". Well I finally got tired of working out and hardly seeing any gains, so I decided to get dedicated about it. I eat 5-6 small meals a day, including 3 protien shakes, flax seed oil, and a multivitamin. My meals are mostly PB sandwichs, chicken sandwichs, humburgers, beef jerky, cheese, the occasonal milkshake, and usually 1/2 gallon of milk a day.
When I started the diet I was 160, now I am about 170 and I didnt gain fat, so I'd say it's working. On December 11th I started taking creatine monohydrate, and my dumb ass was taking 4 TABLESPOONS of it for the first day and a half instead of TEASPOONS. So yeah I feel pretty stupid about that. Today is my last loading day, so tomorrow I will only take it twice a day. I am noticing a difference in my muscles already with the creatine, I plan on using it for a month and then deciding to keep using it or not after the month is over.
Now that the semester is over, I have 1 whole month to do whatever I want so I really want to make this month count as far as diet and lifting goes. I lift 3 days a week and go to a boxing gym on the other 3 days. I would just like to know what else I should be doing to keep increasing gains, and maybe some tweaks to help me get bigger over this next month. Thanks alot guys!
