I have been lifting consistently for about 6 months. The more I read the more I realize I have no clue what I am doing. I have been cycling between set programs but I feel I should be running a more efficient one. Any advice on what I should be doing would be appreciated.
Diet is a place where I am really lacking in knowledge. I have a basic understanding of macros but no idea what I should strive for percentage wise, it seems every article recommends something different. I do not have a problem hitting 200g of protein, but that is about as complex as my diet is right now.
As for training history when I first started I weighed about 140 pounds. I drank a gallon of milk everyday (like I said I do not know what I am doing) and now weigh 180 lbs. I have been lifting 4 days a week but would love a program that would allow me to be in the gym everyday or close to it. As far as maxes I started at 150 bench, 185 squat, and 200 deadlift. Now I can bench 205, squat 250, and deadlift 350. I have gained a good deal of bodyfat from all the milk but it does not look horrible due to starting so skinny.
Goal wise I want to be a low body fat by next summer but other than that just the standard look better and get stronger (probably in that order).
Any advice constructive or not is welcome.
