Nothing wrong with any of those activities. I wish I did more of them.
I know it's been beaten to death, but if you're new to lifting give starting strength or another simple 5x5 program a go. Up your calories a bit (250-500cals/week) and see how you put on weight. Assuming you truly are mesomorphic, you shouldn't have a problem putting on a TON of quality muscle relatively quickly. Good luck!
Squats, deadlifts, and presses measure real strength, btw!

I think you are getting me confused with someone else, probably the OP, which I am not
I just posted cause I was the same weight as the OP and thought I'd add that 6'2" 160 can be healthy. I was once a collegiate light weight rower, then competitive trail runner so thats my weight was low.
I never posted a diet, my diet is ok-ish. But nothing like the OP's, thats crazy intense and not something I could do. I'm not new to lifting, its just been 5 years, I'm pretty sure I can get some good weight on me on my own, if I can't then I get to cry to SF about it.
