also my diet is pretty swag.

when i train i usually eat breakfast which can be anything from eggs to a pint of milk or watever. then i have a protein slam drink then go gym then have another protein slam straight after. then i usualy go KFC (downfall lol) then i have a protein reflex drink then dinner.

sometimes varies.

anyway any recomenadations would be great.

You need to get specific ie. what exercises for each bodypart with what weight for how many reps (every single time) as well as your diet (every meal). Then we will be better able to help you.

widdoes2504's Sig:Height: 6 foot
Weight: 240 pounds

Bench: 415 (1x1)
Deads: 565 (1x1)
A2G Squat: 425 (1x1)

Cardio sucks

It is sounding like to me, given the lack of detail in your explanation, that you are focused on the "whats" of your training rather than the "how" of it. The how is ever so imortant as no exercise will do anything for you unless there is a plan for improvement. A plan for progression (at least a loose one) for one exercise is ten times better than 3 or 4 exercises with no plan.

Even with the big old squats, if someone tells me "i'm doing 5 sets of squats" my question would have to be "and then what?", and "then what after that?".

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Your diet is no good either. You need to be getting most of your protein from whole foods. Eat every few few hours...keeps insulin levels steady and your body fueled with protein for growth all day. Read the How to Bulk sticky in the nutrition forum.

Rest periods depend on the person. If you can recover in time, then you might not need 2-3 days off. But your diet isn't good at all, so I'm pretty sure you won't be recovering very well in a day.
