    Alritey, so about 6 months ago i got tired of being tall and skinny and was 6"2, 155. Thats pretty damn skinny aha. SO i started a Weightlifting and intense eating regime, i eat a shitload of meals every day, burgers, fruit, juice, milk, everything. I just finished a workout session and i now weigh 172.5. I've been putting on loads of muscle and some fat, and got my first tattoo recently. I now look pretty tall and slim still, but have loads of definition and strength.

    Sorry, forgot to mention that i do pushups every night, and am up to 45 straight, might go for 50 tonight. When in the gym, i've only got a chance to go once a week, i do squats and chest machines and those things next to your shoulders machines that make your back look big. That day a week i really tear myself up however aha. So i'm pretty happy with the gains i've made so far, but i'm wondering how much longer it'll take to not be like so slim anymore.

    What can i do to speed up this process? Also, about what weight will i be when i'm "average looking" or lightly deezed, so to speak? lol

    Where do you work out in Toronto?

    There's no such thing as a hardgainer, just an undereater. You'll get bigger if you eat a crapload. If you think you're eating a lot, search "The Dave Tate Project part 1" and read what he eats in a day. As for a good routine, just check out the FAQ.

    Just keep doing what you're doing. If weight gains stop, increase food intake. Repeat that process until you get to a weight you like.

    Personally I'm 6'3 210, and I think I'd be good around 220-230.

    Of course. You have to take the tattoo weight into account.

    I thought I had mistakenly logged onto e.harmony.com

    Ok, here is what you need to do

    1. Set some specific tangible goals, break them down into 5 year, 1 year, quarterly, monthly
    and daily goals

    2. Keep a training log

    3. Train with someone bigger and stronger than you if at all possible

    4. Befriend a Powerlifter--they will teach you things that we, your net friends cannot

    5. Pick 7-8 basic moves ( no machines ) and work on getting stronger in each of those
    moves over the next year--not just for max reps, but in all rep ranges-ensure you
    include squats, deadlifts, barbell rows and overhead press in that mix. Dont try to
    train everyday, and knock off the daily push-up regime for the time being

    6. Eggs, Eggs and more Eggs

    7. Wind Sprints-2-3x a week,

    8. Plenty of Sleep

    9. Spend about 100 dollars a month in latest supplements and drop them directly into
    the toilet ( bypass the middleman)

    10. Being Big begins with Thinking Big

    Read FAQ, ditch machines, begin listening to Iron Maiden's "Number of the Beast" album and "Plastic Surgery Disasters" by the Dead Kennedys on a daily basis.

    To look heavy I'd have to be about 260

    Yeah, that's an example of eating a lot. Nobody recommends eating like that specifically, of course. Read stuff by John Berardi for basic diet info.

    He should probably listen to Jock O Rama also (my favorite):
