    If you hit a 500lb squat at 183lbs, than when u cut down to 155lbs, ur squats gonna be closer to 440lbs. Dropping that much weight is going to be astronomical man. Like for me I am 182lbs right now at around 8% bodyfat, it would be physically impossible for me to get down to 155lbs. If your bodyfat is like 23 percent than ya getting down to 155lbs would be possible, but if your already pretty lean anywhere from 12-15% bodyfat, getting down to 155lbs wont happen.

    Im curious as to what ur current bodyfat percent is
    I am actually looking for an answer. My trainer advised me to take whey protein supplements. I just had a question.. are they safe..i mean do they have any long term side effects?

    They aren't drugs, they are just food products. For example, whey is a fraction of cow milk. So unless you have a dairy allergy or something like that, yes they are safe.

    this may sound like a stupid question, but is there any specific set of workout routine for people with high metabolism?

    No, you just need to eat more food if your goal is to gain weight - and don't do unnecessary cardio.

    Question

    Should I focus on compound lifts for most muscle growth rather than isolation? And what spilt is best for growth?

    A mix is usually better for muscle growth. Compounds give good bang-for-your buck and isolations address the parts that compounds don't reach.

    Split doesn't really matter, what matters is the workload you apply over time - not so much how you organise that workload throughout the week.

    It sounds a lot like you should simply use a ready made routine like Fierce 5 - which will address these questions and many more things that you need to know to make your own routine. Save trying to do that for later when you have a better idea of how a good routine is structured and how it develops over time.

    If your lifts are in the novice range then the basic novice program will be fine. You only need to do one of the others if you have reached intermediate stage (see exrx strength standards) or you don't have the right equipment (e.g. Fierce 5 dumbbell only variant)

    I'm really confused about bulking.

    I don't know whether I should bulk or not. Like I need help setting up this game plan for a bulk and a cut.

    First off, you're starting to lift. You need a good program, a basic beginner program is easily the best choice and will yield the best results (Two highly acclaimed examples would be Mark Rippetoe's Starting Strength or ICF 5x5 by Jason Blaha.) Post videos of your main lifts (squat, bench, deadlift) and a member will help you correct your form. Lifting with bad form is practically the same as not lifting at all, it's useless.

    Secondly, nutrition. It's not super important for someone at an early stage in lifting to necessarily track macros or what you're eating per se, but tracking calories could be extremely beneficial.
    If you're aiming to gain weight, eat more, it's as simple as that (if tracking calories, eat 3500 calories over your weekly maintenance to gain 1 lb per week, so you put on weight while minimizing fat to an extent.)
    If you're aiming to lose weight, eat less, it's as simple as that (if tracking calories, eat 1750-3500 calories less than your weekly to lose 1/2-1 lb per week, so you lose weight while minimizing muscle loss to an extent.)

    Thirdly, supplements. No supplements are needed, some find an external protein source (such as whey) highly convenient and beneficial as one might not be getting enough protein through whole foods. But, aim to get most of your protein through your food. Don't focus on supplements for now, though.

    Fourthly, sleep and rest. Sleep and rest are extremely important. Follow your program to the t, do not modify or change anything "because you feel like it," it is designed that way for a reason and, as a beginner, you lack the knowledge needed to make a decision like that. You're just hindering your progress, this also means resting on rest days. Get as much sleep as possible. Do not get 3 hours of sleep a night, you're again just hurting yourself in the long run.

    Fifthly, pain vs soreness. If you're feeling pain, there is something wrong with either your form, the weight your using, etc. and you should post videos of what you feel pain on, and you may potentially need to consult a doctor. Soreness will likely be present in your first few weeks of lifting and may persist further, however there is a major difference between this and pain. You will know if you're experiencing pain.

    Sixth, gyno. Odds are you do not have gynecomastia. Give it time and it is likely to go away. Most everyone experiences what you are at certain times in their lives, it's nothing to worry about and nobody else is paying attention to it, unless you bring it up and make a big deal of it.

    Seventh, cardio/conditioning. Cardio/conditioning is extremely helpful, and will help you in more ways than you can think. Most, if-not-all, should be doing some form of cardio no matter what. This can be anything from running, riding a bike, or doing a clean circuit, any form is acceptable. I'd recommend doing this at least a few times a week, but as I said you can make it something enjoyable for you.

    Eighth, eating before the gym. Yes, you can eat before going to the gym. Dependent on what you're eating, I'd recommend at least 45-90 minutes before going to the gym. If you're eating a large meal, I'd stray closer to 2 hours, while if you're eating rice cakes or something small you can decrease the time drastically. You don't want 2 pounds of food sitting in your stomach while your trying to squat, think realistically and logically. It's common sense that you won't perform at your best when your still sluggish and lethargic from your lunch.

    Ninth, legs. No, you do not have "big legs for your body," they're fat. Do not, under 95% of circumstances, stick leg work. Suck it up, no one cares that you hate leg work, you'll end up looking like an idiot if you don't do it.

    Tenth, body types. Get body types out of your heads, for your purposes they do not exist and are fake. Stop worrying about your body type effecting you in any way, shape or form.



    If anyone has any questions that I did not touch on, I will be happy to answer them by later today.
