a good bulking routine?
i want to drink about 3 a day plus 2 meals during an upcoming bulk up phase.
N-large2 (1) 600
bannana (1) 100
activia (5 oz) 100
olive oil (tbsp) 150 *except on post workout drink*
whole milk (8oz) 150
x3= 3300 calories,plus 2 500 cal meals= 4300 calories
the shakes will be drank in a 30-45 minute window to increase digestion/absorbtion.the bannana,olive oil,activia and milk is to increase the calories of the shake but more importantly to add to the digestability of it.I drank N-large before straight up and it makes my turds blocky and hard to pass the extra ingredients would surely help in that department.
i am 26 ,5'6 140 with ecomorphic/mesomorphic bodytype (lean,muscular)
the shakes will be on a 3xday for 4 days with 2 days off eating two meals a day during those days,then repeating cycle.i have zero appetite so these shakes are a god send for me.i seem to only be able to eat either a big meal a day or even two small ones.i simply have no appetite
but i want to put some meat on my bones!
i eat usually mostly meat and veggies with not such a taste for carbs.
as far as training,it's going to be 3xweek,abreviated whole body routine.

A lot of people here are going to tell you the N-Large II is a bad idea. They might be right, a lot of its calories come from sugar, increasing the chance of you getting fat from it. I think you are on the right track with the other stuff, but I really urge you to switch the N-Large out with some whey or caesein (spelled wrong) protein powder. The other stuff is fine.
Make sure you train all out, so your body makes use of all this food.
Also you might want to slowly ramp up your food intake, going from your current diet to an all out bulk diet overnight might also send your body (specifically digestive system) into shock, and also increase your chance of fat gain and stomach & bowel issues.

I agree with BigCasino, just make sure you are busting your ass in the gym. I'm curious as to why your only eating 2 solid meals. I'd probably say add a third solid meal so you can get some more meat and veggies. Just monitor your gains and adjust based on the results.
