    At 6'0" 150lbs you are going to see very little in terms of size and strength gains on a "lean bulk" you are already quite lean judging by your avatar pic. If you wish to continue lean bulking, you need to accept that the gains will be coming slower than if you were to go all out and actually bulk.

    Good advice but i did just gain Nearly 30kg's on squats in a month....Im thinking the gains have come from squats 3 x a week, so My thinking is to do everything 3 times a week and see how it comes along

    Yes, but what is your training history? How long have you been doing squats?
