    That WBB1 looks pretty good actually, doesn't seem like many lifts or such high volume, is that right? ? ?

    What a good, helpful thread here..and a good first post. you obviously did a bit of work on your own before you asked a question.

    I concur with all of the above replies. See Drew's thread on semi-dirty bulking foods as well. It's over in powerlifting, I think.

    Yup, that's right. It's meant to be short and heavy and all the exercises are good.

    It works too.. I've added over 35lbs since September. Not much increase in body fat either.

    bear in mind that at 6ft1 your going to have a pretty big ROM on most exercises and also the law of physics regarding torque apply as you have long levers (arms/legs) so when lifting the same amount of weight as ashort guy you are actually doing more work so initially you wont be lifting as much but the strength will come. Unfortunatly that also means you have to get even bigger to get the same proportions, but on the bright side when you do your gonna be huge

    Dont set your goals too short term, work out realistically where you want to be in 6 months, a year, 2 years etc. then work towards them and dont worry too much about what other people are achieving.

    That's cool mate, ah right thanks for the information on levers and torque, etc... it's often an overlooked part of the whole situation i guess.

    To be honest i think if i can add some decent mass then i will look pretty good with the height that i am, i am taller than most people and if i added some nice muscle mass to that frame then i think it would look a load better.

    Thanks again guys, if anyone has any more info, advice, please post, really nice bunch of people here!!!
