OK, I’m not “massive” but everything I have read and learned about putting on muscle points to two areas: 1) Heavy!!! lifting, both ME and DE work - focused on Squats, deadlifts, vertical and horizontal pressing - Tom Platts would recommend Heavy weights w/ more volume. 2) If you want your muscles to grow you have to feed them. Get serious with your peri-workout nutrition and eat, eat, eat good clean foods. This probably isn’t the detailed info you’re looking for but you must put as much thought and focus into your nutrition if you want to grow. If you start to get “fat” (whatever that is!) then push/pull a sled, heavy hammer a tire, jump rope, perform loaded carries, etc. - Be smart about your conditioning, jack-up your lifting weight and volume, and eat, eat, eat.

How many reps do you reckon is enough? Reps and sets is like a grey area for me, there is so much information out there. I take some protein powder and eat moderately healthy.
