Former athlete BULKING
Happy new year people...
So I'm looking to get pretty serious In the weight room and my diet. I've been a football player for years and now I'm coaching.
I haven't worked out since September, but it takes me no time to get swoll again. I'm currently 6'1 223lbs but looking to bulk up to 245-250lbs. By April. The most I've ever weighed is 230lbs. But chiseled and thick.
I need help with:
1) Proper supplements(Protein, creatine, BCAAs, multi vitamins, pre&post etc. )
2) meals/ proper foods
3) how much weight weekly I should look to gain
** Thanks peeps! I'm open to all help from knowledgeable peeps

You have to set more realistic goals unless you dont mind getting really fat or using steroids.. 22-27lbs of muscle in 20 weeks naturally is impossible

I played college football a few years ago ftr.
Look up Doggcrap training and the corresponding diet. It will lay it all out and it is awesome.
Personally I supplement creatine at 5 grams daily, CoQ10 at 200 mg before lifting, Optimum Nutrition opti-men vitamin, liquid fish oil for a high EPA/DHA content and bcaa. Sounds like a lot but it isn't.

You obviously dont want advice on how to bulk. Head over to the subforum for supplement adviceOriginally Posted by TexasGuy

I use protein if I'm cutting and want to hit a high level of protein without all the calories. I can only eat so many chicken breasts and tuna cans. When bulking, I use food. Bring on the steak and eggs.

I agree with the steak and egg comment. Ok thanks again. I'm going to stay away from it for a couple more years. Just started Fri- money is low, I'll have my supplements in 2wks

4 or 5 lbs a month of "weight" is normal if your trying and dont care that its not all muscle, that would give you 4 months to 6 months which is doable naturally, especially if you hit heavy compound movements and stay simple with intense squating, deadlifting benching etc.
