    This is not impossible. I used to be pretty chubby and borderline diabetic but a long slow process of diet and exercise fixed all that. You have no choice but to play the hand you are dealt.

    Just be aware of what your 1RM is and where you are training. You don't have to train to failure and you should also use a variety of rep ranges. Anything from 5 to 15.

    It might be about right in the first exercise you do - but then you move on to other 3 exercises while fatigued.

    Bear in mind volume only counts if you are using weights that are at least 60% of your 1RM. If you burn yourself out quickly and end up pumping light weights for the rest of the session, it will not...

    It's not "good" if you didn't gain weight on it. You don't need 5-6 meals per day, that's a myth. Just eat when convenient to you.

    Bear in mind that if you start a bulk from over 15% bodyfat, you...

    You will... It won't be that long before you can deadlift more than that combined total. You could wait and buy them as needed - or buy 4x20kg disks if you want to save delivery charges.

    The routines he mentioned are good. It doesn't matter if you stay on a full body routine.

    Pick a short term goal - either to lose fat (calorie deficit) or gain muscle (calorie surplus). Look at...

    If you want to feel it in your pecs more, pause for 1-2 seconds at your chest - especially in the higher rep sets.

    Anything legal is a waste of time - coffee is just as good and tastes better. There is no substitute for precise calorie control.
