    I feel so unhealthy (and I am) and I want something that I can call my own. So I thought I minuswhale take up weightlifting. Can you just look this over and tell me if i'm doing this right? Been doing this for a week :dunno:
    I read the stickies but my intentions of this thread were more to get some suggestions for someone as skinny as me with my body type.

    I weigh 115 (ib:hsugh:). I think i'm 5"7 so my diet has this much food:

    115 x 1.5 g/lb = 172.5g Protien
    115 x 2 g/lb = 230g Carbs
    115 x .5 g/lb = 57.5g Fat

    I can throw my diet here if you want :dunno: I'm not suppose to be having 5000 cals right?

    Im following pur's routine.

    Don't start eating a super huge amount... You will probabl yjust get fat, because you can only build muscle at a certain rate.


    Pur's routine is a good choice, follow the diet in the thread as well and you will make good gains... That exact diet he listed is probably the right amount of cals for you too.

    Thanks.

    My current diets looks without taking too much time to write it out:

    Bfast: Cheerios protein shake bananas
    2: tuna sandwich or pbj sandwich
    3: tuna or pasta
    4: preworkout shake
    5: protien bar
    6: 1 cup oatmeal 1/2 cup cottage cheese
    7: 2 bowls cheerios 1 cup cottage cheese

    sometimes I throw meat in there when I can.

    When i first bulked i managed to put on 20kg of weight without really any fat gains.

    But i ate super clean, your body will obviously find a weight its comfortable with, but judging by your height you could easily maintain 160lbs without any major fat gains.

    Your diet seems to have alot of carbs on it, i'm not sure what you 'should' eat, but i consumed heaps of cans of salmon, alot of chicken breast, and only had the carbs on the milk based products. If you can get 3500 calories in a day, and keep the carbs under 35% ontop of a 4 time per week lifting routine, your doing well.

    Use www.fitday.com to track your calories.

    edit - no ones going to make fun of you unless your purposely a moron, if you come on here telling us your going to gain weight without eating excess calories by using herbal meditation than people are going to make a joke of you, if you insist on doing lat raises and d.b curls over compound exercises like squats and deadlifts people are going to make fun of you. You will get a shit ton of conflicting information, you kind of need to siv through it and find what works for you. But 3500 calories, with relatively low carbs following a routine like the one in the sticky would be a good starting point.

    I could care less if someone makes fun of me over the internet (in real life too actually) but if it happens I hope too get a laugh out of it.

    Are the carb #'s I posted in the OP a good number? Perhaps i'm thinking about this too much :o

    Thanks for the advice.

    how many calories is that?

    It seems adequate. Asses your gains over a couple of years, don't decide because in 3 months time your not huge, that your doing something wrong.

    And if people on here make a joke about you you're probably being a moron, unless of course you play hockey, because hockey players don't need to train legs.

    Thats a another thing I was wondering about. How are some people just muscular without touching a weight? My friend is a wrestler and can bench his weight 20 times and his max is pretty impressive too for his size. He is always drinking soda and he couldn't give too shits about diet or lifting.

    Back on-topic:

    Following 9 = F 5 = C 4 = P it equals 2732.5 cals :o

    I got a good idea of what I should be doing. Thanks.

    genetics mostly, check out timbers arms before he even lifted weights.

    And definitely up those calories to 3500... drink a few glasses of milk or something. You need to put on weight.

    The hockey player thing was a joke too, some moron said you don't need to train legs if you played hockey, hilarity followed

    Kudos for the initiative.
    At your age (im guessing 16 or less) focus on eating more (good food) and a basic training program with core movements.
    6 months and you should notice a significant change.

    BTW, sorry but I couldnt help laugh at your image and name...

    well i think his wrestler friend is probably somewhat strong because he does a tough physical sport (i.e. wrestling) regularly... and knowing wha thigh school wrestling is like, the kid is probably 130lbs.

    Per Rippetoe, it was 1 gallon of whole milk a day - every day.
    Either way it's a ridiculous amount of milk

    This is probably one of the more decent threads i've seen in awhile. You won't get shit usually unless you bring it on yourself. I weighed 126 at 6ft and I've managed to make it to 152. No matter what routine I did, or rep scheme the biggest thing is the food. Don't forget it because I did and it cost me alot of time and work.

    :werd:

    But there must be some value in pushing yourself? I use to run and if you wanted results, you ran faster, longer or smarter.

    I lurked a little bit before posting so I came fully knowing what to expect.

    I used fitday and I threw in some milk and stuff and I'm up to 3500 cals :bigthumb:

    On rest days does my diet change?

    Milk is pretty expensive nowadays. I still love it though. Dad gets pissed when I drink too much :mamoru:

    if you want to be technical it could as you will be further over your maintenance level on the off days, but the muscles you stimulated on the 'on days' can still continue to grow on the off days, so its best just to stick to it.

    You shouldn't worry about someone making fun of you, we all got our problems.

    Just eat alot, drink water, exercise and get the right amount of sleep.
    I started at 115 pounds at 6'1, 3 months later i'm at 135, so you are not the only one :)

    A ton. There is NO replacement for intensity. What you are doing is not as important as how you do it. Push yourself. At your age, you have a wide margin of error.
