Hey I am new to this site as one of my friends suggested it to me. I want to give you a little background about me. I used to be fat growing up in high school at 225 pounds at 5'11. I wanted to make a change so 3 years ago I started making lots of changes by eating healthier, doing lots of cardio (used to run 8-11 miles per day) 5 days per week and started lifting a little more. Now I am 6'0 150 pounds and want to try and gain some more muscle weight.
I am fairly lean and I like that but I want to get up to 175-180ish, so 25-30 pounds of muscle by the end of the summer or just within the next 4 months. I am kind of hesitant to start this because I am not used to it. I am used to doing dumbbell workouts and I am clearly not as strong as the rest of the people on this site. Also, I was only consuming about 1800 calories per day for a long time and I know I will have to up my calorie count but I am kinda afraid too because I like to drink on the weekends (college kid) and am afraid of gaining bad weight. I wanna gain more muscle though and get absolutely ripped. I was wondering if someone could help me with some new effective workouts whether they are with dumbbells or other types of lifts (squats, stuff like that). Also, it would be great if someone could tell me how many calories I need to eat per day and I already plan on aiming to eat my goal weight in protein per day so 175g. I feel like that is enough and I already eat extremely healthy so that isn't a problem.
Also, I know I am going to stop doing much cardio but still want to do HIT training for about 15-20 minutes one maybe two days a week just to get my heart rate up before lifting. I wanted to do legs/abs on tuesdays-thursdays then biceps-triceps-chest 3 days per week so what days would be best to do that. Pretty much all I need is any advice to help me get bigger but not gaining fat. Thank you everyone and if you have any questions just send me a message.
