comment Working out 5 days a week when following strengthening routines
Thanks for your response @coxnegative As I train in the morning, it gives me a good start for the whole day. I am hoping to train 5 days a week so I can relieve some of the stress at work and see some results in short term. Once I manage my stress levels, I am happy to train 3 days a week. As I live in England walking is not a good idea with the weather here. Let me know if you have any suggestions.

comment Working out 5 days a week when following strengthening routines
Thanks once again @DaveLiepmann All of my time except training, sleep and a bit if reading is occupied by my work. As I am getting stressed due to work I am looking at concentrating more & better at training and see some results. I am hoping this will help me relieve some stress and translate some of the success at training to other areas including work. I train in the morning and then go to work. This gives me a good start for the day. As I live in England it's mostly raining and cold so walk is not the best thing to do. Do let me know if you have any suggestions.

comment Weight gained using GOMAD strategy
@mike it is looking very interesting and is aslo looking bad when you put it like that. I have started consuming 2 pints of whole milk and 1 pint of skimmed milk with my normal low fat, medium carb, high protien food a day. Its is around 3.5-4K calories a day with little more fat & more sugar than recommended levels a day. I will see how I get on and make changes appropriately. I do plan on to workout 5 days a week instead of 3, will be starting a thread on that. I appreciate your input.

comment Weight gained using GOMAD strategy
Thanks @mike for the response. Will it effect the health like diabetes even if GOMAD is done for a month. 5000 calories is a lot to consume a day without the milk. What would you suggest then in place of milk to add the calories that's easily available/consumable as milk?

Amazon UK does not seem to sell new ones anymore -amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/0976805421/… only old ones are availabe and seems expensive when compared to US. @DaveLiepmann do you know any place I can buy this other than Amazon?

comment Are these Workout Routines right for Body Building
Thanks @DaveLiepmann. Now I am starting to understand and it is also helping what other options mean as well. The reason I focused on machine based workout is that it is easy to maintain form. But I see your point in that it targets only specific muscles. I will follow your suggested workout for 6 months. So it's Squat, Bench Press(1 type), Overhead Press(1 type), Dead Lift, Chin Up with appropriate sets/reps 3 alternate days a week. In terms of adding 5 pounds, is it added for every set? So for squat(3*5), it is 165*5, 170*5, 175*5. 1 gallon of milk a day you suggest seems an interesting idea

comment Are these Workout Routines right for Body Building
Thanks for the detailed response @DaveLiepmann. I am still learning the differences between Strength Training(ST) and Body Building(BB). I have been training for 2 years now and only came to know ST & BB in recent weeks. I have increased my weight few months back from 63-70KG(+7KG) due to weight lifting and mainly due to the program described above(used for the past 1 year). Could you let me know if my workout program above will help me increase my weight from 70-85KG(+15KG) and also get in proper shape. If so could you please provide your input for the questions against the workout schedule.
