    I can only bench like 100lbs, but that's like 200lbs for short people isn't it?

    I was 6'3" 190 for what seems like forever, you just have to say fuck it and eat like a pig and sleep 10-12 hours a night.

    don't be afraid to gain weight, even if it isn't muscle. But don't get too carried away, I think somone here said somewhere between 1-2 lbs per week is ideal.
