    Mon - chest
    Tuesd - biceps, triceps, shoulders
    Wed - Back work out
    Thurs- legs
    Fri - cardio (running) / abs
    Sat - soccer for 2 hours- basically a game with my buds
    Sun - day off

    usually 1 hour or 1 hour and half of work out for each day


    now my eating habits

    Morning - 2 yolks, 2 egg whites, 2 toasts, glass of Whey or bowl of vector (protein cereal) with a bagel and cheese

    Snack: yogurt or a peanut butter sandwich

    lunch - 2 turkey sandwiches or a can of sardines with rice, or a can of tuna with rice and olive oil.
    * I usually have an apple or a banana right after this

    snack - yogurt

    dinner - here is what i usually eat

    -6-8oz steak, rice and broccoli
    - salmon or haddock, rice and corn
    - pork(should i give up on pork?) rice and peas
    - whole wheat pasta with ground beef or with shrimp or tuna
    *usually eat an orange right after

    I feel like i should give up on pork and maybe eat chicken instead?


    late night snack - not sure what to eat here, I'm sick and tired of eating to much yogurt - whats a good recommendation

    Also I'm not trying to gain big weight, since I'm a soccer player but i just want to be in shape and look really lean. I currently weight 160 lb 72 kg, height 5,10 and i think I can gain up to 170 without looking bulk.

    what do you guys think of my eating schedule should i focus on other meals?

    Since your split is basically the same, you should use similar exercises and rep schemes to the "Bodybuilder" routine in the stickies IMO, since I don't know if you're a total noob or not and just lifting pink dumbells and thinking you're working out hard.

    It looks from your diet you're probably at like ~100g of protein a day. I'd eat closer to 150-200g a day for your size and activity level. It won't hurt you, it's delicious and may help your muscle growth more than the amount of protein you're eating now. Keep in mind that protein sources that aren't animal usually aren't very "good" sources of protein.

    3 things...

    1- Training, read the sticky regarding for Pur's session. Its a good solid training program regardless of what your goals are. Everyone is different so feel free to customize it to meet your needs.

    2 - Diet, join FitDay or download their offline program. There is no way of showing you where you need to go unless you document where you currently are or have been. Everyone is different so others may gain weight/muscle on that diet while others may not.
    For the most part, eat RIGHT and often and document it on Fitday and if you don't see the results you are expecting in 4 weeks, change it up.

    3 - " Also I'm not trying to gain big weight, since I'm a soccer player but i just want to be in shape and look really lean."
    Dont worry brolly, its not like you will wake up one day and be 20lbs heavier and go HOLY FUCK WHAT DID I DO!
    Eat and train like you want to get BIG. You NEED to do this so you do not starve your gains or wimp out in the gym and restrict your progress.
    Might as well shoot for the bigtime and change the program if you do accidentally wake up 20lbs heavier, but, I really dont expect that will happen.

    PS.
    Take pics.

    as they said, most people seem to think they are going to look huge with 10 more pounds of weight on them for some reason.

    Get to a decent size first and than cut, i doubt you are a professional soccer player, and being 180 is hardly going to slow you down in it. That 'lean' look you want comes from 2 different things, firstly having a decent amount of muscle, second having low bodyfat.

    Low bodyfat with not much muscle is just called being skinny.
