Need some opinions on where to go with my training

Im 5'9", weigh 205-210. I used to be in better shape but have never been built very big. I have some definition, probably more than the average guy on the street. However, im looking for mass. Im ok with gaining a few pounds cause i can usually knock a few pounds off pretty quicky by cycling.

Right now I cycle anywhere between 8 and 12 miles a day depending on how i feel. i have a couple 30 pound dumbells that i started lifting about 3 weeks ago and im seeing some results, but nothing huge. I also have need doind some pushups. This is nothing compared to what im looking for. I want Mass and im willing to work hard for it. I dont have money for expensive equiptment or personal trainers. i can probably work out a gym membership if i need too though. im willing and hardworking, i just need direction. please help.

Go with the gym membership. Lift heavy with the five major compound lifts (Bench, Squat, Deadlift, Military Press, BOR's), eat heavy. FORCE yourself to eat if you have to. Eat!: heavy on protein, moderate fat, moderate carbs.

I dunno what you've been reading, but like the other guy said, heavy compound lifts and lots of food will get you big fast. Check out Rippetoe or Stronglifts 5x5.

"I don't want them to like me, because when I'm in the ring, punches fly to the face. It is not a tenderness time. I am not falling in love. And he knows that when the fight starts I am kicking faces."
