By taking dextrose, you will recharge the storage without gaining fat.

Based on your stats I'd say you need a calory intake of 2500-3500, depending on genetics. Do you generally eat a lot or not that much (judging by your weight gives me the latter impression but every body is different so I can't say for sure)? Post your whole daily diet.

When you start out it's mandatory to train your whole body since the gains you'll get in your first six months will be your biggest ones you'll ever get, also called "noob gains" and it makes the most sense to train a lot of bodyparts during that time period. Neglecting legs is the reason most people don't ever get a decent look since the bigger the bodypart = the more testosterone the body produces, and legs are obviously HUGE. Not to mention it's extremely unhealthy and looks very disproportionate after a few years of training.

Fixed that one part, training 5 times a week as a natty is more of a hinderance than help, 3-4 times a week gives better results by far, only pro bbs and fitness models train 5 days a week, or even more. There's no need to train a body part more than once a week or at least within a range of less than 5 days but I think you meant that by doing different bodyparts every day.

I wouldnt recommend a beginner to do a 5 day split right away, but you can still make great gains naturaly on a 5 day split without over training
