Four years ago I realized that I too had the ability to build muscle. Two years ago I became more serious about it and tried to devour as much knowledge as I could. Now I realize that I haven’t been really serious about anything beyond research. I’ll be the first to admit that I am a skinny little twerp and judging from my height and weight most people would agree. I don’t eat enough.
However, my goal is to gain fifty pounds (of muscle) by the end of May 2010. I’ve already weighed twenty pounds more so I figure I can gain that back quickly. The main challenge would be to gain the extra thirty. Hopefully joining the tmuscle community will add accountability from like-minded people and enhance my knowledge and ideas about training nutrition and overall health. I will be honest though, and not to sell myself short, but I am not naturally built to be huge.
I have short muscle bellies, long tendons and I could easily take an internet description of “ectomorph” and use it for myself with no discrepancies. Even still I enjoy pumping the iron and hope to actually have something to show for it both athletically and aesthetically. So again it’s 50 pounds of muscle by the end of May starting now. I’ll put up exercise progress like Squat Dead lift and the like but save body weight until the end. I’ll do pictures too but not right away.
Since I am going into a Nutrition Fitness and Health major I should have access to numerous body fat calculators so I can track what kind of weight is being gained and whatnot. I’ve already had my metabolism tested and it’s pretty intense. Apparently, if I were to sit around all day and do nothing at all, NOTHING, then I’d burn 2405 calories that day. Just sitting. It’s a challenging but very simple enemy to beat and I hope I am successful. Anyways I guess that’s all. I hope I don’t fail at this and am excited to test my limits.
I thank you for your time and appreciate any comments you may have. When I do accomplish this then I will definitely not believe anyone who says they can’t put on weight. Think of me as that specific image of an ‘ectomorph’ you have in your head. That’s me! But now that scrawny twig will not snap. OH NO! I love you guys, I hope you’re all doing well and I really want this to be successful. We are all full of crap but at least I’ll be doing my business now and flushing the toilet like other people who actually get things done.
