Look into DoggCrapp training.

Probably my most used base template with new clients, modified for their goals slightly but as it is the program is solid to build a foundation.

& eat to grow.

Most people are posting that DC is for advanced lifters only.

I saw that new top result article stating that now, I personally see no issue with DC for a beginner, you can always slightly modify it if any of it is above you.

Have you never touched weights before?
Current routine if any?

I'm thinking about Fierce 5 over on bb.com. Thoughts?

My maintenance calories is ~2200. Was planning to bulk at 2450. For macros was going to do 150g of protein minimum and 60g of fat minimum and just aim for 2450 calories. As a side note I have to work out in the AM.

I have lifted before, but never been consistent with a program.

5/3/1
5x5

Both decent, I'd prefer build some strength foundation before worrying too much over hypertrophy, it will come regardless at first

Stronglifts 5x5 but only squat twice a week not 3 times like it says, or else around week 8 your squat will plateau
