    could i still get big with my small bone frame?

    Just curious as to what you guys think my limit would be for size as im naturally small hardgainer with small wrists and overall small frame etc, could i still build a fair bit of muscle around it all or am i pretty limited as to gaining slabs of muscle and looking like a reasonably biggish 5'9'' guy?
    u can see me in my profile pic.

    You can still get huge.

    You just probably can't get AS big as those with larger frames.

    Yes you can.
    I have a small frame too, and I will get bigger once I lose a little more fat.
    The best part of this is, my kids are learning to live healthier because of me.

    ive got a tiny frame, small wrists, small waist, small ankles. Makes you look really aesthetic, makes the muscle look like its popping off the bone.

    Agreed, just look at Frank Zane for proof.

    I am in the same situation bro, and that never prevent me from progress.
    I don't consider myself as big, or huge, but I put on a lot of muscle mass, on my little skeleton ^^

    If you actually want to get big then stop referring to yourself as a hard gainer as there is no such thing. Sure some people can put on weight quicker but nobody actually struggles to gain weight if they do what they're supposed to do. Be strict with yourself and eat what you're supposed to eat when you know you're supposed to eat it.

    Another thing is that you're currently underweight for your height...and I'm not saying this to discourage you, but to motivate you...if you eat and workout properly and consistently....you'll gain weight so fast that people will notice and start commenting on it...I'm only at 140lbs at 5'8 and I know it isn't much, but the other day I found an old sheet of paper with my weight at the start of the year, which was at approx. 120lbs, and I don't even remember when I got up to 140...its as if it happened over night...now of course its not going to happen overnight...i'm just saying that you'll gain weight really quickly if you do things right, and that will erase all doubts that you do have potiential to put on some serious size despite having a smaller bone structure, like myself...my wrists are like 6.5 inches round at 5'8... tell me that isnt small...

    Just a couple tips I think may be beneficial:
    Record what you eat (diet log book)
    Record your workouts (workout log book weightxrepsxsets)
    Be consistent
    Be resilient-this is important to overcome setbacks + illnesses
    Measure your progress
    Find ways to enjoy your workouts...whether its enjoying the look/feel of the pump you get...or performing more reps/lifting more weight than last week...whatever you can do to enjoy your workouts, do it! Thats what will make it habitual...good luck!

    Brah I was 5'9 and 112 and got up to 180. Now I am back at 155. Trust me you can do it. I have the smallest bones/frame ever.
