Oh trust me, I’m doing all the research I can. Now I’m 27 yrs old, 6’2 and weigh about 155-160. I have been the same weight since high school and have always been self concious about it, thus the reason to stop dipping and get my ass in the gym, seriously this time.[/quote]
Dude, I’m your height, and two years ago I was your weight, as well. Now, I’m at 205 and still looking to gain, because at our height 200lbs just doesn’t look like much.
I’m crediting a lot of these gains to being a teen. From 15 to 17, a gain of 50 pounds is doable, but I had to eat a lot to do it (also, most of that gain was muscle, I stopped growing at 15). What really helped me was drinking a quart of milk right before bed, but I wouldn’t recommend it if you don’t really have a blazing metabolism, which has been a curse and a blessing in my case.
Other than that, lift heavy, load your spine, and consider dropping all cardio as well as training with a split. Fullbody didn’t do much for me, probably because of the higher calories burned. I was doing 6 compound lifts for 10x3 and 4x6 on 3 days a week, now I do 2 compounds for 4x6 and 2 isolations for 3x10 4 days a week, which already lead to about 5 pounds in 3 weeks.
