    Put yourself in a slight calorie deficit as recommended above. I'd say drop another 5 to 8# and reassess. You look fairly athletic build so a long slow bulk (gain ~2# per month) would do you well...

    I don't either. Everyone competing seriously is competing to be a pro and there is no distinction in height at the pro level. Hell, they JUST started a pro masters division.

    I think it's reverse. A shorter gal will fair better versus a taller one based on size. 5# of added muscle looks way more significant on a 5'2" frame and looks like nil on a 5'9" frame. So will take...

    At your stats I don't think anything can be described as wide. You need to gain weight and add mass to areas to give you a particular look. Like increase size in your shoulders and lats and glutes to...

    Building your core won't make you blocky...neither will heavy deadlifts and whatever else gets a bad rap for developing a "blocky" midsection. If you feel that your midsection is "getting big" you...

    Just use your judgement when it comes to letting them cry it out. At 6 weeks old a baby's stomach is about 4 oz so more frequent feedings are needed. If you know that all their basic needs are met,...
