I saw your routine on another thread, that looks like one problem for sure. Try something like what I told that guy to do. Increase your protein too. Some people might need 1.5 grams per pound of body weight to gain. Eat as much as you can in general too.

That made me snicker too. I'm sure it's some type of milk.

But anyway, yes that is the routine I saw. And yes, drop that in favor of the one I was referring to in my last post.

x2.

The routine listed above isn't going to get you very far at all.

There is a sticky with many routines in it above this thread.

Short for homogenized milk.

And I agree with the others that your routine won't make you bigger.

Did your doctor put any limitations on your activity as a result of your injury?

Hmm-m-m...many young lifters at my gym ask me how to get bigger. I guess my age, combined with a lean 225 lbs. makes me a calling card. I usually tell them: Stop coming to the gym 6 days-a-week for 3 hours each day, stay off the machines, stick with compound movements, heavy weight, and lower rep ranges, pyramiding on each set. Oh..and stop binge drinking, eating $h1t from McDonalds, and staying up all night.

Swap out McD's for Wendy's and I'm out there too. Well I'm not much a "binge" drinker anymore.

Man, this makes me want to go get a Classic double, 2 Jr. Bacon's, and a 10 piece nugget at Midnight.
