I know of the gram of protein to pound of ideal body weight rule, just not sure about total calories.

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

I did 5x5 and still road my 636 Ninja during the week and weekends. My legs were sore all the time but you get used to it.

If you want to get more precise, you can play around with this calculator.
IF Calculator

Values are going to be similar though.

Start with 16/lb and adjust up and down based on how fast you are gaining weight.
Cool, that's very helpful.

It looks like I'm on track calorie wise. I just need to up my protein intake, that's the part I find difficult as fuck.

If you're doing hard exercise every day or have a day job involving manual labour, then sure, the 18 cal/lb body weight is not enough.

7200 cal a day at 200 lbs isn't unreasonable, but me thinks you're grossly over exaggerating calories.

I go back and forth between chocolate and 1%. I appreciate that it's not getting maximum benefit but I'm still getting something like an additional 2500 calories and 120g of protein in a day. My stomach couldn't handle whole milk, and I can't even do a full 4L every day but I get as close as I can. Since starting GOMAD I've probably produced enough methane gas to kill everyone in my gym.

there's a difference between noobs and douchebags

a douchebag can bench 315 but he'll throw plates around, slam weights, talk on his cell phone, hog machines

I don't mind noobs. So what if he's got 5lbs/side on the bar and he's squatting, atleast he's keeping good form and keeping track of his weight, that's more effort than most people put into the gym. I'll go out of my way to help a noob because i know the gym can be intimidating as hell when you're starting out, if a guy I know is a douche asks me for help I'll be much less inclined to start a conversation... I'd rather go to a gym full of noobs than douchebags

Oh, I don't disagree. But when I see people curling in the squat rack, sitting on the DB rack while talking to their friends, doing lateral DB raises and using an incline bench to rest their other elbow - it gets a bit much. Oh, and the GF who sits on a bench while she watches her BF do his workout. That's cool! Weights all unorganized, plates left on the bar, etc.

But hey, what do I know right? I've only worked out there for the last 8 months or so.

BTW, I don't regret posting this or my previous post. In the end of the day, it's the gym I go to.

So sorry to vent. Every time I use anything, I always put it back where I found it. If I walked half way across the gym to grab the EZ curl, and then walked back, used it, and was done with it - I'd take all the plates off, and bring the collar, plates, and barbell back where I found it. It's just courteous. I don't sit on the bench 5-6 mins at a time between sets on my phone. I put the 45s with the 45s, the 35s with the 35s. I even organize the plates on the squat rack so the next guy isn't digging for what he needs. Oh, and I don't bring people to the gym that I know aren't going to do anything, and haven't done anything for the last few months they've been around. Yes, that is me, Mr judgemental. Please shame me for enternity.
