    I have roommate who is pretty lean and built.

    HOWEVER, he mainly does chest and arm workouts :mamoru: :beachworkout:

    Last night I convinced him to bulk and to squats, deads, rows, etc etc

    He weighs 165lbs and is easily 7-8% BF. I'll post some pics up later.

    How many calories should he ingest? He wants to clean bulk but its expensive for a broke ass college student so hes gonna dirty bulk.

    What are some high calorie foods he can eat that are relatively cheap?

    Edit: Added pics

    I'd say a clean 3000-3500, but I'm not a big fan of excessive bulking in the first place.

    He said he was measured but I have a feeling it wasn't done correctly.
