I agree w/ Otep.
In today's world it is even easier for people overeat the WRONG SHIT.
telling someone to "Eat everything in sight and lift heavy" and expect them to get big and jacked is retarded.
in order to gain strength you need to eat ample amounts of correct food.
unless these people live in a world where protien shakes, chicken, rice, meat and veggies are the ONLY thing they can get their hands on....they shouldn't take that crap advice.
even if someone is skinny now; that doesn't mean they can't get fat. if you don't think i'm right....you are stupid. (elitist anyone?)
if this skinny kid wants to gain weight, he needs to eat and he needs to know what types/amounts of food HIS BODY will accept best.
however i do agree with "lift heavy, often"....only after he gets his form correct. lifting heavy and often for a n00b is stupid b/c they don't know shit...or they wouldn't be a n00b.
OP, go at it right. eat good, eat a lot, lift correct. train hard.
