    Hey Everyone,

    I am 32; 200 LBs; and just coming off of some supplements. Ihave been working out hard off and on for a few years and I just keep gettingpissed. I want to look like the big guys at the GYM and I never get close. GuysI just think is my Genetics. I do not think I have it in me to be as BIG asthose guys in the gym. I am about to throw in the towel once again.

    Wouldn’t you agree based on the picture? Hopeless right?

    Best,

  2. Coming off of supplements? Okay?

    If you want to be big then diet train and rest accordingly. If you aren't getting the results you want, then look carefully at those 3 things, because more than likely something is off. It takes years to get where you want. Simple as that. Screw your genetics. Work harder!

    Edit: Just realized this is a poll. If you have to have a bunch of dudes online vote whether or not you should give up your goals or not, then obviously your mind isn't where it should be.

    But with this Frame that I have working with is it evenpossible?

  4. There's obviously going to be some limitations. I have no doubt you can achieve more. You just have to want it enough and do what you have to do

  8. Don't give up because you're comparing yourself to others. Worry less about that and just work out to the best of your ability. Like Sean said, do what you need to do. Keep hustling cuz.

  9. @sean1332

    That was hilarious! Ya I just need to keep trying…

    @gokix811

    Hustle. I like it. Thanks …

  10. Get some tissues for them issues!

    Change things up. Start a new training program. Diet for your goal. Let us know your supplementation stack, diet, and training regimen and we can make some informed suggestions.

  13. Thanks for the compliment as well. I think I mainly take GNCstuff; but over the years I have taken Testanate 50; SUS 500; LMG-25; MegaPlexx; Super DMZ 2.0; the list goes on; When I had good insurance I took thereal stuff with script because I had low TEST.

    Diet needs help for sure but I just do not know how to forcefeed myself a bag of chick or fish; it taste nasty after a while.

    Training is usually

    M- Bench
    T- Biceps
    W-Triceps
    T-Back
    F-Legs

    Mix shoulders in one of those days and off Saturday andSunday.

  14. lol dude no wonder..

    Why did you create a poll asking if you should give up or not when you just now admitted your diet sucks? You think it was easy for the guys you want to look like I be that way?

    I find it pretty hard to believe you put all those chemicals into your body without having diet and training in check.

    GNC is over priced.

    Your training sucks

    A day for biceps and a day for triceps? I do 1 direct Bicep exercise once a week and I'm more than content with my Bicep size.

    I would recommend a 4 day upper/lower/upper/lower split. Emphasizing horizontal movements (bench press, rowing) on one upper day, and vertical movements (overhead pressing, pull-ups) on the other upper day

    Search around the training and exercise science forum for different threads regarding proven training programs.

    You'll get where you want to be. You just have to take the appropriate steps.

    Definitely look into a proven lifting program. Cleaning up your diet will go miles, start tracking your calories and macronutrients so you can better control your changes. agree with GNC being overpriced, Nutraplanet is worth a shot. There are a lot of well loved supplement stacks that many of us have got results from. For example Erase pro and Anabeta Elite, read up on some reviews and logs and pick a stack based on feedback, not a fancy package and GNC advertising.

    We all have our ups/downs, frustrations , disappointments. Some more then others (like myself) but the simple truth is with this lifestyle is that you get out if it what you put in. If you're not seeing the results you want you need to take a breath , step back and re-evaluate , then make changes. Don't be so hard on yourself and don't take it overly serious to the point you take the fun out of it. That's just wasting life.

  17. @Sean1332

    No you are right; its not easy. About biceps you are sayingyou only work out 1 set of biceps? Wow I totally need to refigure out mytraining program. Thanks man I keep believe how way off that I am.

    @Driven2lift

    I have fitbit flex so tracking should be easy; im just tolazy to log everything; that needs to end now; I am going to go in to insanemode FOREVER! Get this s*** done!

    @mikeg313

    I definitely need to step back and reevaluate; that is theprocess I am doing right now. I do not want to waste anymore of my life…

  21. 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.

  22. 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

  23. 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.

    I want to cut now and work on my core… AM?

    @liftandeat

    I will not give up; thank you. I am glad you didn’t.

    @musclefool

    Thanks for that encouragement!

    @ksiss

    Truth.

  26. @Everyone

    JUST FYI! I have printed out all of these comments and willbe studying everyone’s input carefully. I am currently back in college and havea 4.0 GPA. I might have acted ignorant sometimes; but that is only because I amfrustrated with this whole process. What I have learned though; that it isgoing to take years.

    Learned:

    1. I need a core Natural base
    2. I need to EAT more than anyone can imagine
    3. I need to Train like never before
    4. I need WILL and DEDICATION
    5. I need HEART

    I really and sincerely appreciate everyone’s comments; andlook forward into keeping in contact with some of you because you have been sovery helpful. 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.

    Thank you so much for all over your support; and please ifyou have last minute advice on my journey please do not hesitate to leave auplifting comment.

    Best,

  27. Less typing, more lifting...

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

  29. 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)
    AM sucks ass. find me on ASF or IMF.

  30. 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.
