I'm not a guy, but I have male varsity track athlete friends who have tried getting muscles/more buff. You should increase your workout time to about 3-4 hours, 3 days per week. You should also start running a few miles. On the 4 days that you aren't working out for 3-4 hours, you should work out for 1-2 hours as a sort of rest day, but not totally. On occasion (once every few weeks), you can take 3 days straight off. As for your diet, eat 3-6 pancakes for breakfast with lots of fruit. Try to eat unprocessed foods (so no canned foods!) and take out the oreos. Stick to hot dishes like soups, rice, lean meat, etc., but make sure you eat at least one salad per day (with little to no dressing!). Be careful though, if you only eat the hot foods and don't work out enough, you'll end up just gaining fat, not muscle. Also, before and during every workout, drink water to keep from getting dehydrated, and after your work out, drink a glass of chocolate milk.
