    Red face please help me bulk

    skinny lil fucker trying to make some legit gains
    when im making my own meals, which is the majority of the time it looks like this:

    protein: 5-6oz cooked chicken/lean ground beef
    carbs: jasmine rice, potato, oatmeal (i dont really weigh carbs)
    fats: mixed nuts (almonds, cashews, pecans, hazenuts), coconut/olive oils

    i drink whole milk on a daily basis in my protein shakes (2 scoops= 50g) combat powder from musclepharm

    Goal:

    been skinny my whole life and would rather bulk than cut
    classic physiques really impress me and i gravitate towards that look

    right now im 5'10'' @ 150lb
    started @ around 128lb 2 years ago

    the weights i am lifting keep going up but not my body weight

    You do not provide enough information to help you. What is your diet? Frequency between meals?
    The basics- if you consume more calories than you expend, you will gain weight.
    Try upping your carbs. Everyone is different however i change my carbs around and I can gain or lose weight.
    Figure out what your TDEE is and add 500 calories. Try that and see what happens.

    I am stating the obvious but you need more calories if you are that focused on weight. I am not sure how much I would care myself unless I also stalled in how much I could lift. The two things do not always correspond. Maybe keep going as you are until you also stall in strength and then add more calories.

    Well... We need more info about the diet I agree... If your wanting to bulk try this to see how it works for you awhile... Cut back the number of days you do weight lifting and cardio. We need more info about your weight training and cardio. You could focus on compound heavy movements for 3-4 days a week. Thats all you hit the weights. And you could cut cardio out completely. This leaves you with only 3-4 days of training. Or hit one more day of cardio but HIIT. No more than 15 minutes of cardio. Think of it like this... Your not burning as many calories because your not exercising everyday. A typical bodybuilding workout people do 6-7 days a week of lifting and also do cardio... So 7 days a week. So you see your cutting your calorie expenditure and if you increase calories in addition you will bulk up. Pretty odd... train less and gain more.

    Here is a structure for you and the others who have recently posted who want to gain weight: This is what I used to do when I went on that bulk.

    Breakfast

    meal snack

    lunch

    meal snack

    preworkout
    during workout
    after workout

    dinner

    bedtime meal snack

    So this is the structure: This is what I use to do to bulk up before football. You can add calories to the workout drinks.

    Eat more... 5 meals per day and lower cardio 2 per week.
    Heavy lifting, legs, chest, back....4-5 reps
    static stretching to help improve movement, flexibility
    Cheers!
