understood, prof. but if his ultimate goal is to be skinny, why not help the kid be skinny?
Because this isn’t anorexia.com.
If some guy from the fat gainer site comes here looking to add 300lbs of lard, you will help him get there? If so, what the hell is wrong with you?
This guy doesn’t eat right and doubtfully lifts weights much or with any intensity. Why ignore that and act like it doesn’t matter?
because not everyone on this site has the same goals. because much as this is “bodybuilding’s think tank”, a large majority of the posters are normal folk who want to utilize quality information to help them look the way they want, and that may not necessarily mean gaining an incredible amount of muscle mass or general size.
and while i understand your point, the reality is the o.p. does not weight 300 pounds, nor is he requesting to add an additional 300 pounds.
he’s 6’2" and 187. if he drops 7 pounds of bodyfat and ends up at 6’2" and 180, while that may seem skinny to some, it’s far from anorexic (and far from muscular as well).
there’s plenty of queries on this site regarding running and even a few folks on here who do endurance events like marathons and tris. because you may not participate in that type of activity, or advocate that type of training, does not mean giving advice and feedback to those types of posts negates the value of this site.
