hey guys love the forum lots of great info.
what i am looking to do is bulk up i am 6ft 160lbs
I have worked out in the past trying to bulk but didn't eat properly and did not see results plus i was younger with a stupid fast metabolism (i am now turning 26 this year and my metabolism is slowing so i can now gain some weight (noticed this from drinking lots of beer i am getting a belly)
I eat a lot more clean and healthy foods now and it seems to let me gain some weight but i want to gain like 40-60lbs.
I personally can not consume enough food in a day to gain what i want so was looking into some weight gainers (allmax quick mass looks to be the one i will try) so i can add this in the morning and at lunch when i am at work and also will add some Creatine monohydrate to my daily intake (have used it in the past but any suggestions on a good brand would be great) i have a physically demanding job so i only work out 1-2 times a week.
i was reading through Ronnie's picture post with his gains and using Halovar (with great results) is this something that can be added right away or after several months when i have more experience. any reason not to use this sup? and can this be found in Canada?
anything else i should look into adding as far as sup's go?
do i need more protein i usually eat lots of chicken and red meat plus the Quickmass has 56g per serving should i still add some whey protein powder (what brand or are they all the same)?
as for work out routine i am still working that out to balance my workouts with my job so i don't slack in either one from being sore or burnt out. i know to keep reps down to 6-8 per set but i have a friend that was showing me a different way of lifting and it involves 21 reps (14 half reps 7 lower half 7 upper half then final 7 are full reps full motion) is this a good bulking system (seems to work for him but just wondering) is it even a good way to lift weights?
any help, tips, suggestions, criticism are welcome.
