comment Upper back exercises to balance out chest workout
Upright rows will emphasize your upper traps and deltoids (ie. your shoulders).

comment As a hardgainer, how do I get the right balance of calories to add size without adding fat?
@eevar - Good point. 3.5k-4k calories are likely too much for Jaitsu. I was eating that much to bulk from 200lbs. to 215lbs.

Sure, it's nothing that can't be achieved with food, but there are a few benefits the gainer has over food: 1) You get the calories without the fat. 2) At high levels of calories, it's sometimes difficult to have the appetite for more food. 1,000 calories from a gainer is often less filling than 1,000 calories from regular food.

I don't see anything wrong with mass gainers - I've used them to great effect.

comment Need to gain strength to gain muscle?
As I mentioned in the original answer, your strength gains slow down a lot after you pass your 'noob gains'. You can't rapidly increase strength forever. The stronger you get, the harder you have to work for each incremental gain. However, my answer still stands - you need to change your workout. Your muscles have likely adapted to your current routine and you'd gain muscle more efficiently if you change it up every couple of months.
