    lol no not always true, although yes sometimes. but its not a causation, just a correlation.

    Of course about the weight class thing, but i do not agree with your statement.

    Lets say youre 165 still and you max a 330 bench. Do you think that "means the exact same" as a 308 benching 616? I dont.
    I think the 308:616 is FAR FAR superior to 165:330, even if it is a 1:2

    Hi guys, I saw this thread and right away, knew that I had to be a part of this group as I'm 5 foot 8 and roughly 125 pounds...it's not a good situation. So a little back story when I originally started to adopt a healthy lifestyle I was the opposite, roughly 220 pounds, I was getting in shape, but unfortunately dieting turned into an eating disorder. My weight became my obsession and I was so restrictive of everything, but on a promise I made to my brother to gain weight, I"ve been motivated to do just that. I'm climbing my way slowly but surely out of my disorder and am ready to grow bigger and stronger, hopefully with some help from you guys. Thanks, I'm glad to take part.

    Also, i was hoping that id maybe find a few guys in my area with similar goals, could use the added motivation

    I've been skinny all my life. Mostly due to not eating enough and not caring about how I looked.

    Weighed 103lbs when I was 18 at 5'10''. I have gained about 50lbs in the past 4 years. Probably around 25-30 is muscle. Even during these 50 lb gain, I would always gain weight then lose like 10-20lbs when I get sick or don't eat enough. I would probably be around 180lb, if I hadn't kept losing my gains and have to keep working out/eating a lot to get back to where I was.

    Anyways, now I am living on my own and have to cook for myself (depended on dining halls for last four years and parents before that). I don't have much time to cook and don't have any major cooking skills. Any bros, have easy recipes to pack on the pounds? or any recommended recipe web site for bulking?

    I already drink whey and a mass gainer. Just looking to eat some real food now. Getting tired of too many shakes.

    I think I'm only eating about 2,000 calories (haven't counted yet).. How many do I need to eat each day? Currently at 120, 5'8, 18 years old

    Find out how many calories you truly are eating everyday of this week and come to a rough average as your daily caloric intake.
    Then starting next monday and from then on, add 500calories on top of that number everyday.

    I already drink whey and a mass gainer. Just looking to eat some real food now. Getting tired of too many shakes.
    The mass gainers are a waste of money, dont buy those anymore. The whey is a nice supplement however so long as youre getting enough protein from chicken, eggs, meats, etc.

    Here are some quick foods that dont take long to prepare at all:
    Chicken and Rice (prepare the chicken on sunday for the entire week or 3 days or so)
    Oatmeal and bananas
    6 Eggs+toast
    2 Peanut butter jelly sandwhiches
    If you have a trader joe's in your area i really like their microwave chicken burritos.
    Hamburgers! So easy to prepare if you have a grill and so damn good.

    Rofl-mayo. It has nothing to do with health. I physically cannot bulk. I tried for 6 months on a 5k cal a day diet and all I did was maintain weight. So I don't worry about it anymore and I just eat when and whatever I want and just focus on getting strong. If I feel sore, I eat more. Pop-tart away, my friend.

    Hi, I am very happy that I found this page because I desperately need help with my motivation!! I have always been a very skinny guy and I want to put on some weight. I joined bodybuilding.com two years ago in one of my earlier attempts to gain some weight which ended after two or three weeks as all my attempts have done so far. About my situation: I have always been aware of that I am skinny but it was not until three/four years ago when a doctor told me I was a bit thin that I thought I should do something about it.

    So at 194 cm's and 62 kg's I started working out and supplemented my normal food intake with a mass gainer. This resulted in me weighing around 77 kg's (still going up) and at that time I had reached my full length of 197 cm's. BUT then I got extremely busy with my studies in high school so I stopped working out and started losing weight again. Now I am down at around 68 kg's and with serious trouble to get going or more exactly to keep going. My main issue is that I need help to create a work-out plan/schedule with the machines I have available because now I just work out sporadically and probably incorrectly. It wouldn't hurt to get some help with what to eat, any good supplements to use etc. but as I said my main issue is to get going. And yeah I do have a harder time gaining weight because I have high metabolism.

    For a beginner, you can probably do just about any routine and make gains. Do SS or Reg Parks or a 3 day split with compound thrown in. People will argue which one is better , but in the end as long as you are working hard and pushing yourself a a beginner, you will gain muscle no matter what. Assuming you eat enough lol.

    Alright, thanks, will do. I also need a training program, but should I focus on my diet first? Btw, I am using Livestrong MyPlate to get the numbers.

    Heading to bed.. peace out!

    Diet is just as important as programming.

    In my honest opinion, you should run starting strength to introduce yourself to free weight training, particularly with a barbell.
    I recommend this for all the information on the program: http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ:The_Program
    READ IT ALL! Good read!

    However, i do not like Rippetoe's programming, instead i prefer these to be the workouts: Still follow his ABA BAB ABA format

    Workout A:
    Squat 3x5reps
    Bench 3x5reps
    Row 3x5reps

    Workout B:
    Squat 3x5reps
    Military Press 3x5reps
    Deadlift 1x5reps

    In. To make a long story short, in 3 years I've gone from 147 to 194, although I only weighed 192 when I weighed myself this morning.

    I haven't taken the time to read through this thread, but what's everyone's goals, besides getting big and strong?

    Is there a specific weight or bodyfat you all are trying to get to?
    The strong will stand, the weak will fall.

    Hey guys, so I was at 158-160 when I checked in on 2/1. I now am 164-165 and my weight supplements came in today. Really excited to get moving on this, am kind of curious what I should be lifting at my weight. I heard that with ectomorphic bodies, we should do low reps of high weight. Is this true? I'm not sure how much I should be lifting so I usually use my 25lb dumbbells, and do curls until my arms feel weak, then I come back and do barbell curls / pushpresses / deadlifts / bent rows until fatigue as well, it takes a grand total of maybe a half an hour, usually less. I'm aware I should incorporate squats and situps and cardio, but right now I'm focused on bulking up my arms and chest. Any tips ? Thanks guys!

    use the program Starting Strength, and add the end of the workout add in the curls that you want.

    Get accustomed to lifting with a barbell asap, so run Starting Strength for a few months and see how you like strength training.

    In my opinion, you should train in all ranges. Heavy lifting (3-5setx5reps) at beginning of workouts, then higher reps as accessory (2-3setx8-15reps), then at the end high rep bloodflow (1-2setx25+reps).... but theres no one was of training, this is just my theory.

    Isn't doing lighter lifts but with more reps better? Sorry, beginner here :P

    Checking in again here at the end of the day before I go to bed - about 2,000 calories today. Up from yesterday at 1,500 - but I made sure I was eating more. I think the 1,500 - 2,000 calorie range is where I normally eat on a daily basis.

    Just ate cream cheese bagel, 2 banana, 3 hard boiled eggs without yolk

    Bedtime, night!

    Remember there are different ways of training. Strength (1-5reps heavy weight), Explosive (1-3 light/moderate), Size (6-25 moderate), Endurance (25+ light), etc.

    ^Those rep ranges are very very general, so dont think it is set in stone.

    Of course there is overlap everywhere. You can get big from Strength Training, you can get strong from training for size, you can get more explosive training strength, you can build size training in endurance ranges. Thats why athletes literally do everything above.

    But everything comes down to your own goals.
    However, as a beginner, it is your duty to explore everything.
    Hit some heavy doubles on the squat, work on the bicep curls, train you triceps in the 25+ range, do it all!!!
    The human body was designed for it all

    Thought you guys might enjoy this post coming from a former skinny asian dude.


    *****://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pRDBtgdhoM

    I have a 1500 word writeup of the transformation here for those who are interested in reading about the journey.
    Deep inside you there is a burning desire for greatness. Maybe you don’t want to be the next Mr. Olympia or president of the United States, but there is something great that you’ve always wanted to accomplish. Maybe you’ve dreamed of traveling the world, writing a book, or becoming an artist. Maybe you want to own your own restaurant. Maybe your dream is to be a rock-star but you became an accountant because that was the safe path.

    Fear. Fear of failure, fear of disappointment, fear of the unknown. Fear is what keeps us bound, gagged, and immobile. But let me ask you this: how fulfilled are you after decades of living a “safe” and “conventional” life? You already know where this path leads. Be fearless. Take risks. He who dares, wins.

    I for one would rather die young in the pursuit of my dreams than die old, comfortable, and unfulfilled. Will you choose the safe path of a slow death, or risk it all for your heart’s desire?
