I just signed up on T Nation because you guys seem really cool and helpful. I've trained for about 1 year before, but I've had a 6 months break. I finally had the resources to build a home gym a couple of weeks back and we're about to open just waiting on my olympic bar and dumbbells! I'd like you guys to help me out a little bit. I've done quite a bit of reading (Book of Muscle by Ian King and this Men's Health Power Training book) and I really like Ian King's training philosophy. I'm actually looking to do a 10 month bulk but I'm very curious about your opinions on where to go!
My stats are:
18 years old
6 feet tall
My lifts were up to this 6 months ago, but I must've lost a lot of strength:
Bench: 165 lbs
Deadlift: 280 lbs
Squat: 220 lbs
My diet is always very clean, I love cooking and I only eat meat, veggies, bread, fruits, nuts and tons of dairy! Supplements I have taken are whey protein (just post-workout) and weight gainer (in the evening for some extra cals) as well as creatine (post-workout).
Let me know if I forgot anything! And I'm a huge ecto btw, I was even skinnier before I started lifting I'll look for a photo
