im 6'5, 196 lbs...training for 6mths....when started i weighed 230lbs..started cutting on march 1, 2007, now down to 196lbs....please give me advice as to when body type i am, i want nutrition and workout advice....i lift heavy, usually 3 sets of 5 reps or 6-8 reps, so alot of compound moves...squats, deadlifts, bench, dips, chins....any constructive advice is appreciated.






why are you only shaving one side of your chest?


ok but seriously im no expert but your really tall almost a foot taller then me and we weight almost the same. and have similar bf %. im only 5 foot 7. so i dont look terribly small at 190 but someone 6 foot 5 will. i really think you should bulk put on like 50 or more lbs make sure 80-90 % is muscle.

dont worry about being a lil chubbier as long as your strength and measurements increase steadily your doing the right thing. also get 1 gram of protien per lb of bodyweight. take fish oil if your not already. try to eat 6 meals a day and lift heavy. good luck. post back when you see significant progress in your pics


shave the whole thing


Neat :smiley:


Body type- Tall and Average.


You definitely look like a human being.

Haha, love Nirvana.


The funny thing is it sounds like Curt actually sings that :smiley:


You became like this in 6 months only?
I've been training for 1 year and I'm not even close.
I knew I was a hard gainer!!! I knew it..


Constructive advice? Ok, don't take physique pics while back lit.

Other than that? Looks um, er, like you used to go to the gym - to mop floors.
