    hey everyone,

    i looked in the archive section and it didn't touch upon this issue. i hope i don't sound too much like a n00b.

    i'm 5'9" 135lbs. for the past few years, i've been trying to build muscle mass. after spending 8 years at 125lbs with a bench of 225lbs, i finally put on 10lbs. although my bench dropped to 185. i've pretty much given up the idea of ever being 180lbs and benching over 350lbs. just not my body structure.

    i've started to get into various activities where muscle mass really isn't needed as much as strength and flexability.

    would any one have any tips to increase strength to the wrists and core?

    also, how can one improve flexability? i can hold a hand-stand with my head elevated for a few seconds- nothing much more than that though.

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks.

    just read up on how to do a good morning. if i got it right, you take the bar and place it on the back of your shoulders. *starting from a straight position.

    do you then bend down with just the upper portion of the body so it's forming a 90 degree angle at your stomach?

    thanks!

    So do lighter weight. I would suggest suitcase deadlifts and overhead squats in your situation.

    That's a load of crap. I bet you eat like a 10 year old girl. There's plenty of people on here who were your size but they packed on the lbs. Anyone can gain weight if they really want to, but you don't. If someone offered you $10 million to gain 30 lbs I bet you'd get it done.
