What worked well for me was pushing every set close to failure, but stopping when I feel like I would fail on the next rep. I was maximizing every set, and my body seemed to respond very well.

Right now i would say train heavy when its time to train, eat big when it is time to eat, and sleep good wjen it is time to sleep. That and focus on progression. None of these concepts are new.

A simple diet of carbs, protein, veggies and heavy lifting seemed to work best for me

Don't get any simple than this! People tend to over complicate it but the formula is very simple

Eat enough for a small village! Train hard! Rest up! And don't be afraid of gaining a belly while bulking..

Ps. Do not make the mistake of training mirror muscles

Never shared mine. I believe it is the hardest lesson to learn.

Patience!

Muscles are not built over night. If you rush things, you will get fat or get hurt. Lift right, eat right, sleep right and be patient. "If you build it, they will come!" (my paraphrase. Brownie points for movie and who this is talking about.)
