Looking To Get More Ripped

Hi I have been pumping iron for 9 months now and have gotten pretty ripped so far.

I have gained 7 lbs of solid mass and am working on the barrel shaped chest and arms. I need input from anyone who has ever gotten ripped quickly about avoiding stretch marks and gaining mass too quick.

I want to be in total shape before the next Prom. Al.

I could do with some diet info too.

7 lbs of muscle in 9 months, and you’re worried about strech marks?

For some diet info, check out articles and posts on this site.

What about your other body parts? Legs? Shoulders? Back? or just chest and arms?

I feel like I’ve read this post before…

I thought it was normal to gain about 0.5-1.0 pounds a week? What the hell are you eating and doing that makes you gain seven pounds over nine months? Just asking so I can make sure I don’t do it…

Here’s a pic of my gains so far, currently 5’5 and 115 looking pretty good I think.


Joke topic. And shave your happy trail.


Somebody get this kid a cheeseburger

Please leave troll.

Prof, flame away. I might even join you. In my mind, there’s a distinction between ignorant of proper training and approach and flat out delusional.

You are an inspiration to us all.
Thank you for posting that awesome picture. I think you are big enough and a serious cutting phase is in order.
You should cut out all carbs, fat and protein and only drink diet coke.
Are you going to enter any shows soon?
The only thing I can recomend is that you get a tan. Other than that keep up the good work.

No joke !

You can’t be serious.


No way this is real. If you’re going to troll at least try to be a little creative and convincing.

I have never replied to one of these threads, but 5’5" 115 cannot be right.

No you are wrong. There is a joke here.

By the way, do you have a before picture?

Fine, all jokes aside, get whoever that was to shave his fucking happy trail. It’s fucking nasty.

No… It is. You just don’t get it.

Man, I wish I had your physique. Almost gained one pound per month for the last nine month, whew, that must have taken a lot of work. What are your secrets?

Have 3 cornflakes and a Chup-a-Chup and call me in the morning.
