    hey man i have the same goal! but im a sophmore. but you really wanna gain weight? then SQUAT and DEADLIFT. best lifts to stimulate the MOST muscle fibers in the WHOLE body. trust me they work. try not to work your bi's and tri's so close to each other. give about a good 5 days so they can grow while they recover. Also avoid Sat. Fat but stil consume a healthy amount of normal fat. but the STACK sounds awesome! also try to eat near 300 grams of protien daily.

    Hey i really apreciate your advice but how often should i be doing squats and deadlifts? I do squats when i work out my legs, but should i incorporate it more? .. i never do deadlifts.. but if you think it will help i should start..?

    Hey man do even know what H-DROL is? being that young and taking a steroid is gonna fcuk you up in the long run. do you have PCT lined up? IMO and probably almost everybody elses is, your not even close to your genetic potential. Seriously stop taking H-DROL now! you can still gain alot naturally.

    All i can say is WOW. man stop the h-drol right now do you even know what pct is? Your step dad and brothers are not giving you good advice.You are no where near your genetic potential and you are to young to do steroids. If you start doing steroids now you will never know what your body can do naturally. You will have a mind set that allows you to believe that the only way you can gain muscle with anabolics.
    Drop the hdrol and just eat about 6 meals a day.

    Taking AAS at a young age (probaly 17 or 18) you will fuse the growth plates, preventing future growth, as well as the possibility of messing up your hormones for the rest of your life.

    You wouldn't want your little guy to be mad at your forever, would you?

    Also, at your age, your Natural Test levels are at thier peak, and gaining naturally is the easiest thing in the world. If you don't you will need to use Steroids as a crutch for future gains.

    And yea, your brothers/step father don't seem like the best people to be taking future advice from in the realm of nutrition/supplementation.

    Thats funny...thank you for that.

    But in all honesty, helping yourself out won't effect your testosterone levels either way.

    You want them high. It's definitely going to help you achieve your goals.

    I wish I could help out with the supplementation but I'm not really that familiar with BSN's line. It's a little too expensive for my tastes.

    Be careful with dead and squats being one day after another. They work similar body parts.

    1) your routine sucks
    2) your 17?
    3) you weigh 140 lbs.


    H-Drol is oral turinabol. It probably shouldn't even be legal. Its a steroid. Your stepfather and brothers are idiots for advocating that a 17 year old who only weighs 140 lbs take a anabolic steroid.

    At your age and weight, you could probably get to 165 by the end of the summer just from jacking off.

    that routine is pretty dumb looking.

    Try something like http://www.defrancostraining.com/art...s_westside.htm

    this is made for people your age to bulk up for football season and so on.

    he had squats and deadlifts on same day, multiple days of triceps but minimal compound exercises which are mass builders, and so on.

    Inchamery, I used that routine a year ago so i could get caught up for powerlifting, then i did a pure westside routine which is similar but very powerlifting specific. now im just doing a bodybuilding thing so I can look good
    Defranco knows what hes talking about, its very effective and proven.
    When defranco refers to max effort, he means you do a few warmup sets and then you do your main, so assuming you bench 180, you would do:
    45x10, 115x5 and then your set of 165x5

    Then you do the assistance exercises to add volume.
    Take execrises that you like from his list, here would be a sample setup:
    Day1:
    Max effort Bench
    Dumbbell press with palms facing
    Cable row
    cable Rope facepull
    abs

    day 2:
    ass to grass squat - warmup, then max set (you would switch this to deadlifts every couple weeks as needed)
    lunges
    leg curl
    grip stuff

    Day 3:
    bench rep 135 as many times as possible
    skullcrushers
    pullups
    shoulder press
    barbell curls
    abs

    so for all the exercises that arent max sets, basically everything that follows the first exercise, you would do high reps on. rotate stuff around to get variety every few weeks.

    happy building!

    Drop the the cell mass and buy you some bulk creatine mono. You can save 20+ dollars and take in more creatine per serving. Your definitely not going to get anything out of that cell mass that is going to justify the 20+ dollars if you even get anything at all over Cmono. Also drop the no xplode and nitrix. What are you taking them for? The "pump"? Whats this pump doing for you? I have yet to see anything benificial about taking a NO product. If you want a "pump" grab a 10lb DB and curl it 100 times. If you want something that is going to aid your muscles i would invest that wasted 60+ bucks in some BCAAs and a multi. If your diet and work out and sleep is in check then you should be growing like a weed.

    Update on today
    - June 22 Friday

    Lunch (2:00 P.M.)
    Had 2 Peanut Butter and Jelly's with water

    5:00
    -Protein shake

    Dinner (6:00)
    Bowl of Wheat Pasta with Red Sauce and Permeasan
    Bottle of Gatorade Rain

    Current Weight Status
    145.6 hmmm 2 pounds more then yesterday mornings weigh in ... but will it stay


    Current thoughts: Overall today was good.. I learned my new workout routine which i will be starting monday.. got some good advice and also dropped the h-drol.
    It was also a very welcoming suprise to step on the scale and look down at a 2+ pound improvement (idk if i will pee it out though). Hopefully with my new routine i should be able to push on the pounds. I thank everyone for there help so far and look forward to the coming weeks.

    Bottle of Gatorade Rain

    Current Weight Status
    145.6 hmmm 2 pounds more then yesterday mornings weigh in ... but will it stay


    Current thoughts: Overall today was good.. I learned my new workout routine which i will be starting monday.. got some good advice and also dropped the h-drol.
    It was also a very welcoming suprise to step on the scale and look down at a 2+ pound improvement (idk if i will pee it out though). Hopefully with my new routine i should be able to push on the pounds. I thank everyone for there help so far and look forward to the coming weeks.
    dude your dinner should include some protein. The whole wheat pasta is great but i would have it with a chicken breast or some fish. try to eat 40 - 50g of protein at each meal along with your carbs.

    Tell her you want some meat balls or sausage with your pasta...

    or swig a protein shake, like others said....

    Try and eat a few snacks in between meals, and before bed too..
