Size:  48.4 KBalright guys i want some opinions on how im doin. Ive been stuck at this 170lb mark for over 2 or 3 months now and it wont budge. Ive been using m5 extreme which is the first creatine ive ever used and its helped me increase strength quite a bit but no weight.

    a few of my stats right now are 6'4 170lbs
    Bench- 85lb dumbells X5 reps on last set of 4
    Hammer curls- 50lbs x8 reps on the last set of 4
    eazy bar curl - 90lbs X8
    seated cable rows - 165lbs X11 reps
    lat pulldown 150lbs X7
    skullcrushers - 90lbs X6 reps on last set of 4.

    i dont have any stats for deadlift and squats because i go light because of my back.

    do these seem decent at 170lbs and being so damn tall? thanks guys


  2. Eat more

  3. At 6'4" 170lb you're underweight, man. And just because you want to be careful about your back doesn't mean you have to go light on squats and deads - like anybody else you just have to focus on form. Unless you're back is injured, in which case I'm surprised you can handle seated cable rows.

    and yeah i know 170 is light but alot has to do with my legs lol they are quite small including calves...if my legs were equivalent to my upper body i should be around 185

  6. Even at 185, at your height you would be a bean pole. Don't worry about eating super clean. Just eat. That is if your goal is getting bigger.

    All these supps will amount to NOTHING, if you are not taking down the required calories.

    I can't say one way or another without knowing your definition of clean, or what you are eating. You will not gain weight, if you don't eat more. So you need to ask yourself if you really want to get bigger, or if other factors dictate you remain at 170lbs.

    Good luck!!

    Eat more, drink more milk. Proven formula...

  15. And cheese, don't forget cheese. And bacon...

  16. add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil to your shake in the morning too. thats an extra 240 calories right there

    I gotta say, I'm jealous of this - I haven't been able to find raw milk anywhere in my area, and that stuff is awesome.

    And for the record, man, I was essentially in the same boat as you when I started lifting. I weighed 181 at 6'4" and my Dr. pretty much demanded I gain some weight before he'd approve my sports physical.

    Eggs, oatmeal, yogurt, milk, tons of various meat and constantly sipping on protein shakes/eating nuts got me up to 205 in a couple of months.
    My caloric intake was around 4200/day at the time, and the weight I gained was pretty much all muscle.

    Also, as a tall lifter, I highly suggest you spend some time analyzing videos of people squatting and deadlifting. Then record yourself doing sq/dls, compare to the other videos and correct any differences you see. It made a world of difference when I first started and I still do this if/when I feel my form is slipping.

  18. I agree with the above comments, but they seem to be kinda vague.

    You need to do some research, and learn about nutrition and proper macronutrients ratios for bulking. I and i'm sure many other people on the forum would be willing to help. M5 isn't going to make you magically gain weight... sure it'll help with strength because of the creatine, but all it is, is a pre-workout. Bulking is probably 80% nutrition. Are you even using a protein supplement?

    When you are that underweight it is not really as crucial. Just ****ing eat. Stop trying to major in the minors.

  20. Edit: hah that's what i get for not reading all the posts. But just like Frank Reynolds said, it's a question of priorities.. if you really wanna bulk then it's going to take calories.

    Agreed. However if he's an ectomorph, which he definitely looks to be one, gains are a lot tougher.

    thanks man , and i just use whey , no mass gainers

  23. 20 rep squats, high rep/ lower weight GM's for back health, and GOMAD. Give it 6 months and don't worry about seeing your abs. I promise it'll work. When you hit upwards of 20x250 you'll be surprised what happens to your bodyweight, not to mention you're mental toughness.

    Take your pick - Almonds and walnuts are typically recognized as the "healthiest", but it's not like other nuts are bad for you. I usually eat a mix with almonds, walnuts, brazil nuts, macadamias, peanuts and cashews.

  25. Gotta agree with all the previous posts, eat, eat, and eat some more. I'm 6'4" as well, back in high school I was about 180lbs, after 4 years of eating and training hard Im up to 215lbs Dont be scared to put some fat on, you can always cut down later. I must say say from the stats you posted for the certain lifts, your pretty strong for your weight, meaning you can only go forward once the weight starts coming on. Dont give up hope and eat away!
