Hi so im 24 have browsed a few forums and have started to lift weights more seriously recently lol week 5 so far. I weigh 186lbs im about 5’10" I lift M/W/F and run 2 miles T/Thrs. My desire is to add size and strength to my whole body especially my legs. If I had to estimate my body fat I would say its about 18%. I would like to stay about 185ish but have about 7%bf. I eat about 5 times a day with meals consisting of 50g of Protein meal and of at least 50 grams of carbs. I have 1 meal of walnuts and flax oil at night with a shake. Most of my protein comes from shakes.
My question is to obtain my goal should I follow this diet of bulking I have found on another forum thats been helpful ?..
Protein- 1.25- 1.5gram X 1 Lb. body weight = 200-240g/day
Fat- .6-.75gram X body weight = 96- 120g/day
Carb- 1.5-1.75gram X body weight = 240-280g/day
This is my current workout expect I take of Sundays witch usual is my cheat meal day.
I plan on finding a new regiment in the next few weeks so keep shocking my body. Is a weight gainer for me ? Currently I have ON’s 100% protein and their weight gainer. I’m just mainly confused because I see alot of skinny bastards trying to gain weight or size and im not a skinny bastard so im just really frustrated. Any info would be helpful… Next work out to do, comments w/e thank you to those who respond. Questions welcome.
