Is it over for me? Should I give up? My profile Picture!

Don't ever give up always want more!!! Just cuz you don't have the genetics to be a ifbb pro don't mean there is no hope. We all have limitations. You have a fully functional body don't wine about your genetics be happy you can exercise. I was born with Erbs palsy and can only do so many exercises because of my limited ROM in my left arm but I don't let that stop me. Even when I get weird looks at the gym because my left arm looks different idc because I know I train hard and will always be improving. At the end of the day it just comes down to how much you want it and **** what everybody els thinks.

I have a rather smaller frame and takes months of training and eating to gain a simple pound so I know your struggle buddy. But It just takes time I've been working out for about a year straight now an no where near my goal, study man and know what you need

First problem is wanting to compare your self to the big guys, be yourself, eat right, train hard, sleep, and get your head right. Obtain a strong mind and giving up wont ever be an option.

You know AM is a great place after reading this string of inspirational/motivational posts. To echo them, it will take time, determination, and willpower but if you put in the honest effort you will get results.

3. I need to Train like never before
4. I need WILL and DEDICATION
5. I need HEART

I will be working on my natural core and when I graduated fromthat I will be ready to move on to the next level. I will be doing extensiveresearch in the meantime.

i voted "Yes! Your Frame is Hopeless", cause this pic should have been on Hot or Not instead

It's hopeless. You should give up. You should picking up smoking and binge drinking. That way you'll look cool and you won't care how others view you.
(sorry, but your asking to be trolled)
I'm high on life and here to get swole!

Stop trying to compete with others and compete with yourself, that's the best advice i can give you. When i walk into the gym I couldn't give to ****'s about a single other person there I'm training for me no one else. You need to get ride of that defeatist mindset.
plus stop wasteing money on supps the only things you need are protein, fats, and carbs. Supps aren't what get you big, you are the only thing that can get you big.... that and steroids, defiantly steroids.
P.s. stop looking at other dudes in the gym your creeping us out.

You need a better workout plan, period. You don't need 2 days solely for arms. Use those days to hit the bigger groups twice and get twice as big twice as fast.

Here's to overcoming adversity--You have to stick with it. From where you're at, you're a h*ck of a lot further along than I am.
When I started lifting 4 months ago, I deadlifted 65 lbs. Yes. That's six-five lbs. Little girls were laughing at me. I have a bad lower back, and a tweaked right shoulder so I had to keep things light at first.
Now, I'm at 200lb for deadlift and squat--and no back pain--which is at least a start. Weight wise I want to be at 270+ for both squat and deadlift in the next 4 months. I'm 150 lbs and I think I can get to 155 at 10% BF in that time as well. I don't ever plan on being big but I want to look good.

1. Look at your diet-macro ratio and grams of protein, quality of food that your macros come from.
2. Heavy compound lifts (research powerlifting)
Once you get this down, then supplements will make more sense. However I can understand the frustration, but supps and roids are a lot better after you have the knowledge of how to train/diet to achieve your specific goal. I didn't go through every post but I have a feeling your training wasn't geared towards heavy compound movements and your diet wasn't set up properly for a clean bulk either.

Bro... Get your head right first! You have to believe in yourself to break plateaus. I don't care if it sounds corny, it is true.
Psycho Cybernetics by Dr. Maxwell Maltz is a fantastic place to start, and it can be had for about 5 bucks on Amazon. There are also many great guided meditation audios that can really help with this.
I had a **** childhood and I can't begin to tell you how powerful healing your beliefs about yourself is... I thought I would never get below 15% bodyfat, but when I changed the fundamental view I hold of myself (we ain't talking Stuart Smalley crap here) it was like being struck by lightning!
Second, skip all the muscle comic split routines. Stick to the basics! Google "Doug Hepburn routine", you absolutely positively cannot go wrong mastering the basics!!!
I have wasted so much money on supplements, ignoring being consistent and training progressively, and just eating real food.
Feel free to PM me if you would like to know more. I know so well what your frustration feels like, and how amazing it feels to conquer and overcome it!

"I have been working out hard off and on for a few years..."
Here is a novel idea. Try working out consistently for improved results.

Is this some kind of rib on the A.M folks? Sounds like you need to work on your self esteem more than your body

Bro, just do what everyone at PHF said. You don't have a bad physique...I don't know what you are upset about. If you want to be leaner, then cut. If you want to be bigger, then bulk.
1. Get your diet in check
2. Get your training down (not as important...lift heavy weights and progressively overload the muscle and you will get bigger)
3. Add drugs if natty isn't doing it for you and, at your age, I would suggest you just stay on and blast/cruise to get the results you want
4. Profit and get *****

I don't think you'll ever get to where you want to be! - Now do you look at that statement as motivation to prove people (and your self doubt) wrong, or as affirmation that you're never going to be big?
I'd honestly say your physique isn't half bad for a pretty poor workout program and what I can only assume is a sparse, poor diet. If you want to be big, you've got to EAT BIG. You'll never get really big if you want to sit around and complain about being too full to eat any more, and complaining about the way fish and chicken taste. Well, maybe you could get by with Steak and Eggs and other protein sources, but fish and chicken are a pretty regular staple in most muscle building diets. I HATED tuna when I started working out, didn't like tilapia, and didn't mind Salmon, but never sought it out. After a few weeks of forcing myself to eat them, I now can stomach tuna, don't mind Tilapia one bit (bordering on liking it) and look forward to my salmon each day.
But since you posted online asking if you should quit, and seemed willing to accept the answer if enough people said yes, I have my doubts that you're willing to do what it takes over the long term to achieve your goals.

You said you had diagnosed low testosterone and that you ewen where on prescription juice for a while, is this problem fixed?
when you start trt its usually a Life long treatment as your body starts to downregualte your own testosterone production.
