    Sorry but there is no quick bulk up method i can recomend.

    Putting on quality muscle is a slow process. Bulking and getting shredded to the T are not going to happen very easily for a beginner. I would get on a good eating plan, continue training hard and give yourself time. Thats what it takes. No shortcuts!

    • Hey Alex, I just joined the forums and I'm really motivated especially seeing the community that will now surround me throughout my progress.

      I am 19 Years old, 5'7, 149 lbs. I am not sure what my body fat is, but I'm pretty sure its less than average.

      I want to bulk up in lean muscle, and keep my "cut" looking nature. I also want to cut up so my abs show up a lot more.

      My question to you is, what are reasonable goals for me to set for myself? I'm completely lost as to what goals would be reasonable and in what time frame? I want to gain a lot of muscle size but stay cut.


      I am a complete beginner when it comes to supplements, work outs, and dieting.

      I do know that I do not want to take very many supplements.

      I just went to the store and here is my diet plan. Any criticisms on it would be great on accomplishing my goals.

      8am: ON Pro Complex Protein Drink mixed with 2% Milk & 1 Cup of oatmeal
      10am: 2 Liquid Egg Whites & 1 Cup of Rice
      12pm: 1 Chicken Breast, 1 Cup of Steamed Vegetables
      2:30: 1 Chicken Brease, 1 Cup of Steamed Vegetables
      3:30: Workout
      5:00: Protein Drink mixed with 2% milk & 1 cup of oatmeal
      6:30: 1 Chicken Breast & 2 Cups of Steamed Vegetables

      The time pattern varies at which I consume these meals as well. But that's about the spread.

      I'd really appreciate your input. Thank you.

        You do eat a lot of meals spread throughout the day but a little low in protein and carbs . At your height you are pretty light. If you are trying bulk( put on good weight) you should be eating more for sure.

            • Hey I just have a couple of quick questions, if anyone has any advice to give me it would be greatly appreciated. I have been wrestling for about ten years now and I think I may have come to the end of my run. I would like to try out bodybuilding to fill the void that practice has for so long. I am no stranger to the gym, but it has been focused on high intensity circuits. I think I should start isolating muscle groups, I am curious as to what sort of split I should begin with. I have the time to work out 5 days a week. I am currently taking musclemilk vegegreens and omega 3-6-9. Any help on diet and supplements would be greatly appreciated as well.
              Thanks for your guys time.

                I would get in the gym and start training regularly. Add some cardio to your plan and get on a pattern of eating about every 3 hours and you will be set to go.

                    Choose from the following proteins sources: chicken breast, turkey breast, lean steak, egg whites. As for carbs i would stick to rice, oatmeal and potatoes. I really dont know much about you, your bodytype, goals, current lifestyle etc. but. would start cooking up your foods and develop a plan to eat 5-6 meals per day.

                    In the gym, i would focus on basic movements such as squtting exercises, bench press, ovehead press, curles, tricep pushdowns, lat pulldowns or pull ups, some ab work, calves.. Of course spread over the course of a week, not in one day. I would try to hit each muscle group one day per week.

                        Get back to me if you have more questions bro. Also if you want to take it to the next level and have me draw up a plan for you and make updates and changes to get you in great shape.

                        I can put together a plan so you dont have to do any thinking. I will do it all and work with you for the next six months or as long as it takes to make it happen. You can go to my website and check things out.

                        • Hi Alex, if I were to post up my training routine and diet etc would you mind looking at it and giving me your opinion/recommendations on where I could improve things possibly.

                          I h ave been lifting weights about 18 months, I have noticed good gains but I am aware this is pretty common at the beginning. To be honest when I started I read around a few (lot of!) websites and put my own training routine and diet together. It's only recently I came across this forum so I see it as a perfect way to finally get some professional opinion.

                          I would greatly appreciate it.

                            • Do deadlifts, squats, and weighted ab work thicken the obliques giving the illusion of a wider waist? If so, how do you work your way around that?

                                Sorry this took forever to answer.. I would not worry about widening or thickening your waist from squats or deads. . Focus on these exercises. Many pros that have been training their entire lives doing compound movements never have this problem.. i.e Dexter, Lee priest and many others. It is a good question though.
