Hi everyone, just want to introduce myself. Im from Toronto, Ontario, Canada and i've been training for only a 5 weeks so far. Well I trained 3 years ago for a couple of months, then I went off for a bit then I trained for 6 months of serious training and then I took a year and a half off
Now im back and im very dedicated to my training now and I know this time I will never give it up, im going to train as hard as I can and I won't give up. The last time I kind of gave it up b/c I didn't really see results so I said forget it.
Im only 5'11 and around 150lbs so it's quite hard for me to gain weight and mass. A year and a half ago I was only 144 lbs so I haven't gained much in such a large time span.
Anyway i've been on many forums and I've been reading a lot of stuff since I stopped training and I have learned a lot and this forum has great articles and advice and I know it will help me throught my training. Great site guys

Like you say, you learn a lot from the site/boards/forums...
I'm not moaning, i'm having an opinion.
Stick with it this time, results don't come easy, or everyone would do it

"Im only 5'11 and around 150lbs so it's quite hard for me to gain weight and mass. A year and a half ago I was only 144 lbs so I haven't gained much in such a large time span."
Then examine your diet and training again.
I've gained 34 lbs since the beginning of this year.
Thanx guys and gaining 34 lbs is very impressive. Any tips?
Healthy eating first!
Then lots of it. But healthy eating!

Er.....pretty much yes....
And rest sufficiently between workouts and listen to your body.
Overtraining will only inhibit your growth.
Work the larger muscles as well.
Squats, deadlifts and bench press. But don't neglect stabilizer muscles. Just read up on these boards and you'll pick stuff up tips quickly.
