    dude you should be proud you dont look 200 lbs and i would say by looking at you there is now way you could bench 300 or curl 70 lb dumbells so just imagine how much your strength will increase when you actually make the gains you desire

    It's hard to believe you warm up with 225lb just by looking at your physique.
    And you started curls with 40lb?!

    Congrats.... Your chest and arms got a little bigger.

    If you really want to start seeing results, start working your deadlifts, rows, squats, and overhead presses as hard as your benches and curls

    I think you need to learn the value of patience.

    as of according to that. i tried my best to remember the form when i went to the gym, i put 225 on the barbell and tried best ic old to do it like that guy, i do reps of 5 and did that, but possibly felt room for 5 more. but i feel it more in the mid/lower back area. and i didnt feel all that right "dead lifting", maybe cause iv never done it before. but ya my back is all sore now.

    Don't get discuraged, it is so much eisier to gain lean mass when you are starting out thin. Do your research, protien rich foods and suplements should become your best friends. Push as many calories and continue to work hard in the gym and you will see results. There is no way to good size over night, have some patience bro.

    I do see some differences, your obliques (side muscle-rib cage area) have grown significantly.

    u wanna hit over 200grams of protein a day? start eating a lot more tuna and chicken. cold cuts, lean meats. screw the weight gainer crap, get your self a quality protein supplement.
