    I go the gym 5 days a week and lift each muscle group. It usually consists of 5-6 machines/exercises with 4 sets and 10-15 reps.

    Monday - Arms and Forearms
    Tuesday - Chest and Shoulders
    Wednesday - Back
    Thursday - Racquetball
    Friday - Legs

    Stomach is Monday, Wednesday and Friday


    My diet probably needs change (actually I'm sure of it). I just don't know what I need to cut out (or add).


    Breakfast: 3 egg whites and 2 whole or Weight Control Oatmeal
    Snacks: Peppered Jerky/Peanut Butter
    Lunch: Brown Rice with Chicken w/ teriyaki sauce (Chicken Rice Bowl)
    Snacks: Jerky/Peanut Butter
    Dinner: Chicken/Fish (I eat Mexican about 2 times per week.)
    Drinks: Water/Milk

    Protein Shakes: 1 or 2 times per day

    I tracked my diet on fitday.com and came up with this:

    Cals: 2000
    Fat: 68g
    Carbs: 207
    Protein: 141

    When I eat chicken for dinner what should I top it with? I can only take so much grilled chicken with lemon pepper.

    Yeah, I know I would get responses like that. Which is what I want.

    Do I need to eat more? If so, what do I need to toss in?

    the lifts youre doing are probably shit. do mostly compound only. do back squats and front squats each week on separate days. lower your rep range to heavy triples or doubles. deadlifts, cleans, snatches. lots of squats. low reps. this is what works for me

    if your looking to add calories just switch to whole or 2%, easily add a couple hundred calories if your drinking 2-4 cups a day.

    its the opposite for me. if i do 2-5 reps i dont really seem to gain much size. but if i do like 8 sets of 8-20 reps on back squats i see much better results.

    I've been seeing best gains doing exactly what deadbolt said.

    I'm on 5x5, eating clean whole foods like a horse, and im seeing size/strength gains out the ass.
