Hey, currently i've been doing p90x and am on the fourth week (Recovery week). I was wondering if i should continue or is there another routine to actually GAIN Muscle instead of toning muscle. I want to gain a little more muscle before I tone up. Any Suggestions?

Yes.

Look up a program called Starting Strength. That will put muscle on you so quickly.

Before anything you need to have a strong core. So basically you want to do core exercises which are mainly Bench Press, Deadlifts, Squats and shoulder presses. Those are the foundation exercises that will stregthen you as a whole.

want to gain muscle? or are you referring to gaining more muscle mass / definition? if that is the case have a great diet with a lot of fiber, protein, calcium, and vitamins. lift very heavy with few reps, but repetitively. finish off with lighter weights and many reps to define. also i recommend some cardio, ie, run to burn some fat. you dont want to gain a tummy pouch from all the eating.

yo so basially im new at at this whole shit you call 'exercising'

but to gain lean mass do you basically eat about 500 or more clean calories more than your daily caloric intake? Also lift heavy w/ low reps?

If your trying to get bigger and gain mass you want to lift heavier and eat more protein. If you are new to working out you should shoot to be able to atleast bench press your own weight. That's a good starting point.

Diet is the most important thing. Eat healthy and lots. Get some Soy Protein Isolate from a health food store. Cheap and best kind of protein. Creatine and grape juice is one of the best drinks you can have before you hit the gym. You gotta be dedicated. Like 4-5 times a week. Quit all your muscle gaining pills and powders. They will cause more problems than good.

Very true. Diet is just as important as your workout. Dedication is everything.

I'm no expert but I gained a few pounds by just lifting with hard reps and running.
I'd say the most important thing that you can't forget is eating. YES EAT and take
some protein shakes

just work out regularly and eat and sleep. dont need to kill yourself in the gym, i see idiots everyday when i go to work lifting weights they can't do. they come to me and complain they're in pain and never see any results. don't over train, give your muslces enough time for a full recovery and just eat eat eat eat. carbs before you workout and protein after you work out. you'll be fine.

Eating is one thing
Training is another
Sleeping is also crucial
and yes whey is more complete than soy because of the AA Profile The BCAA's content is richer than soy
if your lactose intolerate go for whey isolate
best time to take whey is after a workout and as soon as you get up from bed
and if you need a sleeping protien eat cottage cheese
or a mix of whey/ and non fat dry milk

Eating good fats is also important as well because fat help regulate hormones
Fish oil(anti inflammatory) ... 6 caps a day should do the trick
if you need any help PM me

and yes heavier weights lower reps is the best bet cause your goal is to build strength

Yes, that's for people who mainly want to lose weight. They do advertise to gain weight, but nothing in that workout really supports that claim.

Not my thread but, would it be better to have protein shake 1 hour before lifting or after lifting.

I lift in the morning so if I do it before it will be my breakfast.

strongly agree. crossfit has the best workouts... military personnel and MMA fighters use this.. only problem is, you'd have to find a gym that's not very crowded, unless you have the equipment at home

eat a lot (eat your bodyweight in grams of protein), rest a lot, lift hard. i gained 20 lbs in 4 months. never seriously lifted before that. most of the weight went to my legs though, from squatting.
