    I have been lurking here a while.

    I've been weight training seriously for aproximately 8 months.
    Since beginning to build my house I have gone down to 2 to 3 days a week and I never feel like dealing with the muscle fatigue I get when I do legs. So legs has suffered. Hope to get back to 5 days a week(including legs) in a month when the house is done.

    I have my own gym at home. Includes a cage, butterfly, smithbar, bench, chair, sets of dumbbells in 5# incriments going from 15# up to 45#, pull down cable/bar, rowing cable and lots of plates. It's all high qualitai Nautilus stuff. Got a awesome deal on it all.

    I eat semi-healthy. Some times I go a 3 days eating everything bad under the sun. Some times I go 3 days eating very healthy. I try my best to drink a protein shake after every workout. But miss sometimes. I don't take in near enough protein, imo.

    Weight 165# - Started at 160# with alot more fat. Dropped to 158# after a few weeks and have been adding muscle since.
    5'10"

    Neck 15.25"
    Bi 14.5"
    Chest 40.25"
    Waist 33.5"
    Thigh 24"

    Sorry for the shoddiest picture ever. Only semi-recent one I have.

    Tell me how much weight I need to put on.

    you look pretty lean, bro... i dunno what kind of figures you're lookin for, though

    for example, i'm about 2 inches shorter and 20 lbs. heavier than you :dunno: it's all about what YOU want

    I couldn't find any pictures of the gym.
    But I did find a picture of me a few months before I started taking my training seriously.

    What's the best to do for the lats? I mainly do cable rows for them. Are there any freeweight movements that do well?

    I know there are alot of members here who aren't fans of home gyms. I got all this stuff in brand new condition for $500. I can pass on a gym membership for a while and be happy here.

    I will be moving into my house in a month, hopefully. Then I will have alot of room for more stuff.

    Where did you get all that stuff? I ask because I'm looking for some more equipment.

    That's a good deal for $500. But smith machines are no good. :hs:

    I got all my stuff for about that price. Rack, weights, bar, adjustable dumbbells that go to 80lbs
