    you're quite skinny. don't worry about bringing up lagging body parts yet, just do heavy compound movements for your lower and upper body and eat a lot.

    What is smaller, skinny or scrawny? You really need to eat and do some heavy compounds.

    Tiny, like a small boy. A small girly boy child.









    Lift and eat and you'll grow fast. Don't waste the newbie gains! You can eat a LOT right now and not gain much fat. Take advantage of it and we'll see you soon! GOOD LUCK.

    I was just about to post the same thing.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    Yea im new to body building but i think its going to be my biggest hobby now.
    I really would like to see some great gains in short amounts of time (but who doesnt).Right now im in college/have a GF/work all the time and have no time to sit down and eat right...any suggestions on fast on the go food that is good at puttin on those calories and also direct me towards a good newbie workout with a bench/body weight exercises (no access to a full gym right now) What supplements are good to add in a diet that will pack the biggest punch?

    thanks for all the input so far...and i have read everyone else who has commented here journal...you guys have made some major improvements.....I WANT TO ALSO!! lol

    I'm definitely familiar with the hardgainer term and thats what i am an ectomorph. Plus i eat alot now and am trying to cram more and more in but not gettin very far with weight gains.

    nuts, milk, protein shakes and more nuts are great for quick meals that are very calorie dense. Olive oil is great, put it on everything and put tablespoons of it in ur shakes.

    Sorry to break it to you, but you really don't eat a lot.

    You have time to eat properly. Don't make excuses.

    If you go to college, they have a gym. Don't make excuses.

    As for routine, get this book: http://www.amazon.com/Starting-Stren.../dp/0976805405
    and here a brief write-up: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=712752

    You can see great gains if you want to. Don't make excuses. You have everything you need.

    Its alot easier to drink calories then eat them... so that said if you're in a hurry alot buy a blender and make alot of shakes. Tuna is really quick too and you can prepare alot of it at once and keep it in the fridge. If you have the tuna mixed with mayo or w.e ahead of time you can make a tuna melt in about 2 minutes that tastes amazing. IF you're eating out alot order the biggest steak or chicken meal they have, see if you can get rice or potatoe on the side... protein bars are ok but they have alot of sugar and saturated fat, which in your case you don't need to worry to much about, you can get them cheap at costco. Eat everything man you're skinny... bigmacs baconators whoppers.. all the good stuff haha

    havent been very dedicated I lifted hard and drank those freakish bako shakes for about 3 weeks but then i ran into some family problems and couldnt eat or sleep right but now im back on track....I have added a few pounds but nothing major and i think mostly they are just from the creatine. I am ready to get serious now though. Let the games begin

    These pics mean nothing they are just to look at...trust me i know i havent gained much.

    Search for Rippetoe on this site. Use his beginner routine.

    Drink a gallon of milk a day.

    Your photos will look much different in 3 months.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Your very skinny, but lean. I was unfortunate to be skinny and fat.
    Ive been here for 1.5 years and can say I have made a lot of improvement. Read and listen to these folks and youll do great (and probably do better than I did considering your starting position).

    After:

    Since the after pic ive been cutting down (losing fat). I can finally say im happy with the way I look (but I can always improve!).

    Thats how I used to look.. well I was actually skinnier. Im still tiny at 147. I feel huge compared to where I was, but compared to what I want to be I still have a long ways to go. Lift heavy and eat lots are the 2 biggest things.
