So since I set my mind to it at the beginning of the summer, I have gained 16 lbs., starting at a scrawny 134 and climbing to slightly less-scrawny 150 as of a few days ago. I'm sure it probably doesn't sound like a lot to most of you (I know some here STARTED at at least 150 - heh), but it feels awesome to hit that mark and I'm now only 4 lbs. away from my ultimate summer goal. To everyone who's working on their goals, keep on keeping on!

congrats on the gains! any gain is significant in my opinion. especially for us ectomorphs.

I started at 140lbs. I am now up to about 167lbs.

I started at 157 in 2000 and got up to 193 in 2003. Now I compete in the 176-lb range, but I'll get heavier again in the future. Bulking up is one of the most fun phases of bodybuilding!

Keep up the awesome work!

Robert

jesus, i just found a picture of the young dwayne 'the rock' johnson and his dad! look at the size of his dad - no wonder the rock is so well built!

Image

anyways, as i couldnt find a picture of the rock without a shirt on, his dad serves very well to show the kind of proportions i wish to acheive. do you guys think that at 6foot 7.5, 275lb would get me there?

Yes, I really like The Rock's shape and proportions as well. His dad is awesome too. I'm sure it doesn't hurt anything to come from such fantastic genetics. 8)

It's hard to say exactly what you will look like at 275 pounds, but it has to be pretty impressive. I mean an extra 45 pounds of muscle has to look like something. :D If you get there and it still isn't enough, then you will have to keep on eating. :lol:

hehe! you may be right michael. just keep eating, just keep eating!

i think that anything over the size of the rock looks daft, and besides much larger isnt really possible without steroids/GH.

i hope to reach 275 in three years, maybe four. ill be 24-25 years old then, which will give me 10 years or so to use that mass to get huge maximum lifts :)

I started at 150lbs in early 2004 (I've been skinny for most of my life), and I weighed in at 191 before my workout tonight.
