High protein/low fa: I would recommend a high protein and low fat diet to build lean muscle. You should have some form of protein at every meal, 3 meals/day, with healthy snacks in between. I also would recommend lower weight with more repetitions for lean muscle. "Maxing" out your weight will increase muscle bulk. Hope this helps!

Want to bulk up and build plenty of muscle. What workouts can I do?

Work out: Bulking up requires not only several sets with low repetitions (8-10/set) using heavy weight, but also is affected by diet and supplements. You can visit a local GNC or you can talk to a trainer at your gym to ask which supplements are best for your needs, your body type and your goals
