Default Need to bulk up

Whatsup guys? I just joined the forum annd I just started working out recently and i am quite on the skinny side. I tried doing research to find the perfect routine for me but im not really comfortable with what i found this far.

My question is how do i go about finding or creating the perfect routine for myself?? I want to start bulking up. As in explode...
On that note. What mass builder would you guys recommend?? I heard SSN Mass Addiction is a good one??

I would also like to know if i do a workout how many sets and reps would be the right amount to actually bulk up? I constantly see different amount of sets and reps and it just confuses me /: can someone please clarify that for me?? Would be much appreciated

(Oh i workout from home so my equipment is limited. I have a bench, a bar bell and dumbells for the time being. Will acquire more equipment as time goes by.)

My favorite mass builder is Quatro's BBQ Chicken pizza. You won't need a gainer shake if you get your diet in order. If you find that you really can't eat enough food to gain weight, read Dave's westside bulking story. http://muscleandbrawn.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1178

For a routine, don't worry about different set and rep scheme's too much. You need something basic, and something that has you adding weight to the bar on a regular schedule. Sets and reps don't make you huge, increasing weight on quality exercises does.

Since I'm guessing you don't have a squat rack, you won't be able to take advantage of one of the greatest mass builders: the squat. However, you can do full cleans and deadlifts still.

I would like to see you run a basic beginner program, something like this http://muscleandbrawn.com/real-resul...lbody-workout/

As soon as possible, find a way to do squats. Good luck with your training.

^this

Whole milk is also a great mass gainer. If you drink 1 gallon over two days that will cost you the same or slightly less than a jug of mass gainer and is a better source of nutrition.

Thought on Brute's comments about Squats. Find two saw horses. Set and Load the bar on the saw horses and then start your squats at the bottom. You will only do one from the bottom, but you nail that and coming out of the hole won't be much of a problem for you. That is a quick poor man's way to get to squatting.

Ditto to what Brute says....

Go out and get you a squat rack -or - squat stands at a minimum. You can probably find something for less than $100 on your local craigslist. Squats are so vital to growth.

Find someone to help you with your form as well. Good luck.

best advice I've heard for ectomorphs is from brooks kubik: lift heavy but keep the tonnage to a minimum...

I've been doing this and progressing strength quickly and recovering well.

For strength and size as an ecto, try using singles or doubles up to a heavy single, then take about 50-60% of the top weight for 2-3 sets of reps (on the big lifts).

Of course, eat and sleep more

I have a power rack in my home gym. It's good for not only doing squats but other exercises as well, and in a safe manner. it is a worthwhile investment.
