I`ve been looking into bulking and cutting and seeing as I`ve always been on some sort of diet/cardio regime in the past 3 years,I think I ought to gain some muscle to get rid of the skinny-fat syndrome.

I`ve upped my calorie intake to 3300 and make sure I`m getting 172g of protein in a day.

I`m currently weight training 4 times a week[2 body parts per session]. Cardio is done on different days. I do 2 session`s of 2000 skips with 250 crunches and a 10km jog once a week. I also take an hour of ballet.

Am I going to see significant gains?

PS: I weigh in at 176 pounds as of today at a height of 6ft 4 1/2. Plan to gain upto 188-190 over the next three months and then cut back down to 176 again [during the following 3].

With 3300 calories every day, with significant weight training you will see results, all that matters is what lifts you do. I would suggest plyometric explosive, strenght training you get the look and the strenght

I think a caloric surplus of 300-600 calories per day and a proper lifting program will get you where you want to be.

Good Luck!

Yup, its around 300 now. Thanks so much! After losing 66 pounds I`ve been so scared to get into weight training and eat more, but I figured I`m 21 and might as well do it now! :)

Right now, I`m just doing the exercises that my trainer makes me do. Will look into the stuff you mentioned.

Kick-ass bod btw.

What does your training program look like?

You should see gains doing almost anything if you're untrained.  I would recommend a full body program 3 days a week.  If you're new (or haven't lifted in a while) to weight training, you will recover faster than an intermediate/experienced lifter.  If you lift 2 body parts each on 4 different days, you won't get as much work done as you could.

Split routines are typically better for intermediate/advanced lifters because they dont recover as fast.  

smashley23, I`m really looking to make the most gains as of now. Do you still suggest a full body program?

Yes.
