I am on a very healthy diet, no soda, candy, junk food and very healthy meals overall
I am trying to just gain muscle, I have no intention on just gaining a ton of fat
I go to the gym at least 6 days a week pretty much without fail, only reason I didn't go today was because I had to read a book for class lol
Good call with removing the junk items.

If you're looking to gain muscle mass, I've heard the following helps:
  • Intake of 20-30g of liquid protein before/after a workout.
    The protein is needed to replace what is lost, and essentially rebuild muscle fiber. Your body can only handle up to 30g of protein at a time, so anything more than that is a waste. Additionally, some studies suggest that liquid protein is easier to digest and absorb than solid protein. I prefer a clean, whey protein shake where I drink 1/3 before the workout, 1/3 during, and 1/3 after. If you get exercise-induced heartburn, you could take 1/2 before, 1/2 after. Or simply drink a protein shake immediately following a weights workout.
  • Drink a lot of water.
    This will help all-around. Being hydrated prevents headaches, lessens probability of cramping, helps digest nutrients (the added protein!), and possibly prevent the build-up of lactic acid (Kreb's cycle?).
  • Allow time for rest.
    You need to give your body time to rebuild. If you're going to lift weights 6 days a week, consider isolating muscle groups each workout? You could also do a 2:1 or 3:1 mix of heavy weights and cardio, with extra protein on weight days.
  • Consistent sleep schedule
    This will help everything overall; your energy level, metabolism, etc.

that is a lot of the stuff I have been doing but I have recently been trying to get away from the muscle groups because it makes my workout too short I feel (only 30-45 mins) i like about 90 mins, I do have protein shakes about 40 something grams a shake, I drink tons of water usually 10+ cups a day, I also tend not to get sore as bad as a lot of people and trust me, I hit the gym HARD! This allows me to sometimes do the same kind of stuff two days in a row if I feel like.
For example: I really really enjoy shrugging on a barbell so I sometimes do that multiple times a week
I usually workout from around 4:10ish to 5:30-6:00 in the afternoon so I try and drink my shake at around 3:30 for sometime to digest and then dinner is at about 6:00-6:30 and that acts as a nice recovery meal

In short, yes. Yes I do. Depending on what you are looking for I can give some advice.

12minutes is for little girls
weights are also for little girls that can't handle the manly toughness of calisthenics
