How big do you wanna get?
I see some guys on here that are HUGE and I don't know why lol. basically unless your a body builder I dont see why you would want to be that huge... I train more for aesthetics and athletics... BUT how big do you wanna get list your specs I'll start
I'm 6'3" at 194lbs at 8% (currently)
I wanna be 6'3" at 215 at 7%

Currently 5'10" 175 (had 2 viruses this winter). Might work my way back to 185-190..or not. I have been over 200 at 10%ish bf before and could hardly sleep and had little endurance for hiking which I do a lot. My obsession with being big is pretty much over although I do miss certain aspects of it. I do not however miss having to force myself to eat and having my arms go numb every night and flip-flopping all night trying to get comfortable.
If I worked a standard 9-5 in town job I would probably rely more on BBing as my sole hobby/athletic pursuit but outdoor work and recreation is more my cup of tea.

I have the same problem with my arms falling asleep at night. Do you know what this is caused from? I just assumed I had some slight nerve damage from heavy bench presses. I am 5'9 215.

5'10, currently 226lbs at 18% Bf.
WOULD LIKE TO BE 200lbs around 10% Bf, which I can only seem to obtain and hold during the summer season. I always bulk during the Fall and Spring Season.
I lift for aesthetics, but the longer I lift, the more weight I can put up, which in time, equates to greater size, unless I intentionally lift under my strength capability and I sure the f*** won't be doing that.
I don't think I strive for size per se, but when I'm pushing for excellence every-single-workout, size becomes part of the outcome.
But it could also have to do with my body type. I size up if I breath too much. I don't need to hyper calorie, I don't need to carb up, carb down, or eat insane amounts of protein. I just size up if I workout and eat like a civilian. It's the cutting that KILLS ME!!! I've only had abs once. Last summer was the first time and I WORKED MY @$$ OFF FOR IT!!!! I was 197lbs and clean as f***, but now I'm 226lbs, big as hell, but SO IS MU BELLYYYY!!!!

hahahaha see i'm opposite i have a meso body type and always remain leaner and faster i can never put on massive amounts of weight...

Sometimes I enjoy the size, sometimes I wished I could be that guy checking out my abs in the mirror, haha. I've actually long excepted my meso-endo bodytype. I used to be a hardcore cardio freak, while at the same time a lifting freak, so my body stayed right in the middle. I was 185lbs for yeeaaars. I had to FIGHT TO THE DEATH to keep my body from sizing up and I believed strongly that I would be able to lose bf while gaining only musculature, now I know that is possible, but I'm talking about for ME. I need diet O2 or I blow up and I'm sure I could attain that goal if I had a pre-show body builder diet. But I live a real life full of work, school, work, church, girlfriend. I can't eat a deck of cards servings worth of grilled chicken every 3 hours. Sooooo... I know for me I have to EITHER, be bulking, which is just normal life for me, or working hard to cut. Which only seems to be possible during the summer.
LITERALLY.... 80% of my clothes don't fit me right now, my arms and shoulders don't fit through my t's and last night I got STUCK in a button up I really hoped I could wear. Hopefully I'll get my clothes back during the summer.
I was 197lbs in the summer, which is the heaviest I get, I'm normally 185 so most of my clothes are meant for a 185lbs body. Here's a plug, but ever since I came to AM and learned about all the cool "REAL" supps, (I'm a recovering Muscletechaholic) I'm currently 226, no PH's, but everything else....

hahah yeah i can eat waht ever i want but never bulk up... but on the flip side i dont need cardio for a six pack... so idk i guess no one is perfect...haha

I am 6'1", and currently 252, I would like to be about 230. I have been mainly working on flexability, and endurance. Even When lifting heavy I dont go below 8 reps. I am not a powerlifter . . .even though I can lift like one haha
01-29-2008, 01:20 PM
5'11, currently 190lb at about 15%bf
ideally, 225lb hovering at 10% bf

l I would guess my bf to be in the mid to low 20's as well. However I am a powerlifter and train and tend to eat like one, I would like to get my bf down without losing any strength but I am willing to keep my belly if it means my bench stays 420+.
01-29-2008, 06:46 PM
Currently 6'1" 235lbs @ 18% bf... I am going to continue bulking until mid april and hope to get to 250lbs and hopefully stay sub-20% bf... I start my recomp at aprils end and hope to be around 240lbs 12% bf by the end of july... wish me luck..

My goals are:
Cardio - To be able to sprint for a distane to run / jump / sprint etc in times of need to help people or remove myself from danger i.e. war etc etc
Look: big but cut aesthetically pleasing nice trim waistline
Destined: To be a fuggin super hero of course. It's amazing that I only recently found out what inspired me so much as a child , it was comic books and those rippling studmuffins

I'd like to be 200 lbs with 9-10% bf. Nothing more, nothing less. Only problem there is having get above 200 lbs...and I can't even get over 195 yet. Working on it though.
01-30-2008, 10:49 AM
no seriously tho id say im 223lbs 6'2" @ 10-14% BF and if i had 10lbs of lean muscle and sub 10%BF id be real satisfied...so 235lbs around 6-8%BF

I'm 5'9 and 170 and like 15%BF (guesstimate)
I'd like to be 6'2 and 215
Seriously though, my stated goal this year is to hit 200 with 10%BF.
I'm a classic hardgainer and was 140 until junior year of college.
01-30-2008, 03:11 PM
I dont really have any number im looking to reach, I just wanna reach my genetic limit. I like the thought of being the best I can be... and if im still not satisfied, there are other options down the road.

Thanks to a lack of money I've been out of the gym for a little over a month, and also thanks to the lack of money, my diet has been complete crap. About 4 or so months ago I was up to around 185lbs, now I'm probably closer to 175lbs (at 5'10'').
I've got some money now and I'm going to get back into the gym and hit it hard. My goal is to be at least 190lbs before it starts getting warm. Don't care as much about being lean right now as being big. I'm already pretty lean, so I can't see myself gaining that much fat. I'll probably do a couple cycles between now and then. After being pretty bulky I hate feeling small. I'm gonna have to do something about this.

5'7 probably about 18-20% b/f and 220lbs.
Would like to stay at 220lbs and get down to 10% b/f
I had abs before college, thanks to my diet of 10 cent draft night and 1 dollar well drinks all day saturdays I put on 40lbs in 2 years :burg:

I know, I know , I was a serious booze hound. I've cut my drinking down to a couple of drinks one night a weekend.
I didn't just gain fat though ( mostly but not all ), my deadlift went up 150lbs, bench went up 75lbs, and squat really didnt do much, prob 25lbs. I basically powerlifted and ate lots of food with the idea that I would drop it post-college.

without a doubt. I may have been a slob ( of sorts ) but my strength was going up quickly and I was making good gains when I actually had money and ate halfway decent.
I tended to gain a lot of weight right around finals every semester, I drank a lot of soda to stay awake studying and ate like crap.
About 5 months after college I wanted to try and bulk for 12 weeks during the winter and then start a cut right around this time, I ended up putting on 10lbs in 6 weeks!!! Granted not all of it was muscle ( lost 2lbs right when I started my cutting cycle early - I attribute that to water weight ) but ppl were asking me if I was on roids because of how quick I put on mass. I think going from 215 to 225 in 6 weeks was pretty impressive on wal-mart creatine, lots of food, wal-mart protein, and a multi.
In the 6 weeks my deadlift went from 375 for 3 reps to 425 for 2 reps and my bench jumped from 255 for 2 reps to 275 for 2 reps. Not the biggiest jumps but def were satisfactery for me.
