    New Member Needing Help & Advice

    Hey all,
    My name is Mikey and I'm an 18 y/o college student. I'm 6'1 and my weight fluctuates between 165-171 constantly. I started working out consistently in June 2018 and my starting weight was 145. I put on 20 lbs since then and although I feel bigger it doesn't look like a huge difference. I've tried tons of different protein powders, pre workouts and creatine since then and I haven't seen much growth since my initial gain. In fact, I think I've lost some of the muscle. I'm wondering what different steroids/supplements some more experienced lifters would suggest with someone of my size. I don't need to lose weight, as I have barely any body fat. My goal is to obviously put on muscle and I'd like to reach 185-190.
    Thanks for your help in advance!
    -Mikey

    You're about to get 20+ replies of the same answer. You don't need steroids at your age, you simply need the right diet and workout routine/mentality. Your natural test production at 18 should be more than enough to allow you to grow respectably. Making newbie gains and then wanting to turn on to jewce isn't the right answer.

    What Cole said.

    Plus you put on 20 lbs in 1/2 a year and still bitching? You have to be doing something right so keep up the good work my man. If it was easy, we'd all be big.

    Seriously. Youve barely dipped your toe into bodybuilding and are expecting even faster results than youve already gotten? Very good results too?

    Im sure you have heard that this is a "Life Style". One doesn't simply decide he wants to be big so he goes and lifts weights for six months, eat big, gain 20lbs and is disappointed. 20lbs is great results. You should be happy. This is all about diet, hard work, discipline, and patience. Keep up the hard work and celebrate your victories no matter how small they are. You have a lot of potential left. Work your ass off!

    Haha, good one.

    It's mainly the annoying fact that my metabolism is ridiculously fast, so if I'm not eating every second every day, I lose weight. I was also curious if anyone had a meal plan/dieting tips and different workouts to do with those that have proved effective.

    Now you're on a better path. If you can add 20 pounds in six months you can continue to add weight. Steroids are still not the answer for you right now.

    Check out the dieting and workout sub-forums, a great deal of info there.

    We can help you with all those things. But you are gonna have to eat all the time. Way too much. If youre doing it right, you should hate eating.

    Other people's meal plans and workouts aren't for you. It works for them. If you want to find success find what works for you.

    If you have a crazy metabolism then train less. 4 days per week max and keep the training no longer than an hour and a half. It should be high intensity. So heavy weight. Reps in the 5 to 12 range.

    Your diet should be the see-food diet. You say you have to eat constantly to keep your weight up. Then you gotta do that.

    There is no working around calories. You either eat or you don't. No supplement or steroid can make up for missing calories. Steroids and supplements will only supplement your dietary intake.

    Start eating more calories per bite. Packaged foods. Ice cream. Pizza. Burritos. McDonalds etc...

    What would be helpful actually is describe a typical day of eating when you were successful gaining weight. Let's start working from there.

    what everyone else has said. you are making more test naturally than some are injecting. you are going great by your own words, 20lbs of lean mass in 6 months is awesome. resign yourself, you will need to spend more time and money eating than you will in the gym if you want big muscles! 80% of your results will be related to your diet.

    look to animal protein and only use shakes to fill in, I think it will save you money in the long run.

    keep up the good work and listen to these guys
