    If you wanna grow, you should be eating around 250grams minimum of protein a day.
    Try to have 3 shakes a day, morning, post workout and b4 u goto bed.
    also make sure u traing your shoulders, and have reasonable rest.
    And eat alot of protein foods like egg whites, fish, chicken, tuna etc.

    Part of your problem bro is it sounds like you are over training, cut down the frequency of your workouts so that you are hitting each group once a week. It is hard to comment without knowing your current diet but I will give you an idea.....start out around 3000 calories a day....spread over 6 meals for the sake of making the math easy. So that is 500cals per meal.....you know that you want around 250 grams of protein....we will say 240 again for the sake of making the math easy. That is 40g per meal, as the fella's said a couple shakes here and there, eggs (easy on the yolks but dont' disregard them entirely) chicken and fish.....red meat 2-3x per week is good too, especially when bulking. For the fats, I personally like to keep them really low around 5-10g per meal, say 10 for bulking......so far that puts you at about 1500 cals and leaves the rest to come from carbs. So that leaves you with 60-65g of carbs per meal. Since you are bulking I wouldnt' be too concerned with where your carbs come from but I would limit the shit in the diet. I would keep atleast 75% of the carbs you take in be from the following sources: Whole Oats (not the instant shit loaded with sugar), long grain brown rice, green veggies (will take ALOT to get 60g of carbs so they are a great addition to anymeal to help fill you up) and legumes such as lentils and black beans (do not count the fiber as grams of carbohydrates).

    On top of all this I add an additional 100g of carbs and 50g of protein after every workout.....so that would make your training days caloric intake 3600 instead of 3k b/c your body will need the extra cals. The carbs need to be high glycemic and the protein should be high quality whey......and NO fat whatsoever.

    Hey dman,

    Just to add on what the other bro's suggested, you Shouldnt be training chest/legs on the same day, they are very big muscles (esp legs) and you'll probably lose a lot of energy before you finished one of them, maybe a workout like this:

    Mon, thurs, fri - OFF

    Tuesday - Legs + bicep + Forearms
    Wednesday - Shoulders + Traps + Calf
    Saturday - Chest + Triceps (maybe some AB work aswell)
    Sunday - Back + Abs.

    i've been using it to good effect, but i dont keep it the same, i alternate.

    But you just have to experiment and see what works for you.

    On the food side, i'm a veggie, so i can only suggest things like Pasta, Beans, brown bread (good protein), brown rice, tofu, soy products in general, i doubt your gunna want to eat boring old tuna everyday.

    Hope this helps.
