hey guys! I've spoken to stamina briefly about this, but I think I'm going to need more help. Judging by how popular this forum is I think I can get that here!
I've always been skinny, and the fact that I keep growing just enhances that fact. Currently I think I'm roughly 6'3 160lbs. I'm on an exchange from England to Texas Tech, and really want to make use of the free gym facilities, but its obvious I really don't know what I'm doing.
I've just started, and I've been using the 5x5 method, mainly doing chest, biceps, triceps, shoulders and abs in the circuit room of the gym. I usually work out 3 times a week (usually alongside playing indoor soccer/basketball), is that enough/not enough?
Really don't know many decent workouts, especially for the shoulders which is probably the main area i wanna get bigger at(if you have/have had the slim/boney shoulders you'll know what I mean!).
Food wise, I have a dining plan with 600 bucks left on it. The food place closest to my dorm is very limited though, they have Mexican/pasta/pizza/Chinese/burgers/fried chicken/salads. After hitting the gym though we usually hit the buffet place on the way home and get some chicken/vegetables/pasta Its only open like an hour a day though, only real chance to get something healthy. I usually have 3 meals a day from there (usually pasta/coupla burgers/wrap) and at home have a handful of ham sandwiches/bowls of cereal/pints of milk).I don't have a car, so I cant really go anywhere else to eat conveniently, and we don't have an oven (only a toaster, refrigerator, microwave and 2 hot plates).
I'd be interested in supplements, since I drink a lot of milk anyway, but I'd have absolutely no idea which one to buy. Any mega weight gainers out there that actually work?
So I was wondering, could anyone help me with some routines/advice on working out and eating. I currently have plenty of time on my hands, and I'd appreciate a workout schedule, or something like that. And some exercises that would work better than others.And any ideas on foods/snacks I could buy and prepare at home with what little I've got, or what I should try and be eating on my plan.
