Congrats on the progress Alex! Im a college student majoring in Exercise Science! I can relate to your body type, im 6'2 170 and have been very lean all my life. Last semester i put on 17 pounds of muscle in about 6 months. I was working out religiously 6 days out of the week. The biggest factor is consistency in lifting and dieting regularly. Make sure you are consuming a large number of calories or you are just wasting your time. Keep in mind it takes an excess of about 3500 calories to gain 1 pound of muscle... so eat eat eat. Like someone said before me, make sure its the right type of carbs(complex not simple). You should also only consume about 20 percent protein in your diet... so 3 protein drinks a day is overkill depending on the amount. Anything more then 20 percent is just gunna end up in the toilet lol. You will eventually begin to make only minimal gains but dont get discouraged. Good luck with everything and feel free to ask questions!
