I'm 18, 6 foot, and weigh 145 pounds. 6 months ago I weight 124 pounds. I'm looking to weight 165 in the next 6 months. I want all my gains to be muscle. I've been doing micro cycles to try and maximize my muscle growth. So the first week I would do lighter weight and more reps to build strength. Then the next week I would do heavier weight and less reps to build muscle. I've definitely seen a difference in myself at the gym because I'm lifting way more than I use to. I've been training since November.
Schedule: Mon: Chest/Triceps, Tues: Back/Biceps, Wed: Active Rest, Thurs: Shoulders/Legs, Friday: Abs, Sat: Active Rest, Sun: Active Rest.
When I say active rest I mean I'm not just at home doing nothing, I do some breakdancing and go out and play basketball on those days.
I've been taking QuickMass Loaded which has 1010 calories and 60 grams of protein (4 scoops). It also contains creatine. I have also been taking Jack3d for a week and it seems to have been giving me the energy to lift more, and finish more reps.
As for my diet I just try and eat over 4000 calories a day, and drink a gallon of water.
So I'm just wondering if I should change anything from what I am already doing. What are the best workouts for getting big? Also if my goal to gain over 20 pounds of muscle in 6 months is realistic. Thanks.
