i would add weight when you can do all of the sets at the top of the listed rep range.

or to make it simple use the muscle and brawn full body like skids posted above, it uses the rep goal, makes progression simple.

I recommend the muscle and brawn full body.

I'm curious how you and others manage this, especially if you don't function socially, academically and professionally within a fitness oriented enviroment?
Hi Adam,
From the above ^ Don't 'try' to have a meal before you workout, (it is a must.) This is a time when you can eat (your not at work.) Make pre and post mandatory, no excuses. That would be a good start. It seems like you already know where you need to eat more, so this is good too.

Everyone's suggestions are great, and making your own weight gainers rock.

I understand about having jobs not conducive to eating. When you can't eat have to sneak it! It is all about getting creative. When I worked in retail I would hide food under the front counter near the register. When I worked at a children's art museum I had to wear an apron. I would hide food in my pockets. It is a no no to eat in a museum, so I would walk between exhibits and shovel food in my mouth when no one was looking. Also excuse yourself to use the bathroom. I would put walnuts or even peanut butter sandwiches in my apron. Protein bars and those tubes of squeezable peanut butter are great too.

Yeah, I've got to be more creative about getting food in. Eating @ school is ok, as long as I have time to get to the microwave before class. It's hard to get food in between clients at my internship, and you're not supposed to eat at my job, even though I work in a deli surrounded by food, go figure.

I understand, just do what you can and work around it.

I just find it funny that I seems the have the metabolism from hell, but take medicine for hypothyroidism. Seems contradictory. Oh, and another thing, how do y'all keep up with calories, especially you're cooking and/or mixing things together. I know when I cook a meal, the portions are large, but I have no clue how to come up with a relevant calculation and hit that number consistently.
For you, I would skip the measurements. Eat until you're sure beyond a shadow of a doubt that you've gone over your goals, then have a cookie for dessert.

If you really want to measure than there are websites out there to help. I use myfitnesspal.com whenever I want to measure anything. That's how I added up that shake I suggested for you.

But most of us don't measure things out that often. We've just been doing this long enough to know what we need to eat for our goals. Personally, I'm the exact opposite of you. I can gain weight without a second thought, but I have to really put a lot of effort into losing any fat at all. It's extremely tough for me.

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll check this out.

I appreciate all y'all's help and suggestions. I just need put these plans into action to get some weight on, because being this small and this old is not working for me. I'm realistic enough to know that I'm never going to be a huge bodybuilder or anything (though it would be nice), I just want to get to a point when "skinny" is not an adjective to describe me.
