    I'm currently 5'11" and 164lbs. Last year I went on a bulk and got up to 184 but it was a lot of gut, despite hitting the weights 4 times a week. I've been running a lot this summer (10ks, 7.2mi road race, 5k, etc) and have very little body fat (or muscle) at the moment.

    I'd like to learn what the hell I'm doing wrong (my guess is mostly diet) and be forced into a bit of discipline and regular routine. My business schedule only leaves the early mornings open or possibly mid-afternoon.

    Is there any benefit in hiring a PT? How do I go about finding one?

    My goal is strength and thickness. My necksize is small as is my back thickness. I need a stronger neck for the motorsports that I do, where Gs really hit you in the corners.

    Advise oh mighty ones!

    Bulk + lift.

    See christopher's routine. You'll want to concentrate on your traps, throw it in on a wednesday or friday.

    Just make sure you are getting enough protein and eat whatever you want. with the fat will come muscle assuming you are lifting right. Cardio will kind of hinder the bulking process, I know when I bulk I don't do any. I would suggest bulking to 190-200 before cutting again.

    Ok. I do not have anyone to lift with, which kind of sucks. Can I accomplish what I want by myself?

    the biggest thing would be to get into a routine with it, incorporate it into your daily life...it will start to feel weirder to miss it than to go to it
