I'm 140lbs and would love to pile on a load of muscle ... which takes a load of effort. I don't have the motivation to workout at home after a day at work sat down at a desk.

I'm happily engaged - so the 'get more women' idea isn't going to work. I'm faily handy in a brawl - so that's not really a factor.

What will motivate me to put on 60lbs!?

You'll eventually put the weight on anyway. Might as well start now making it look nice. Oh yeah, if your woman isn't attracted to you anymore, she'll find someone she is.

Aye, I'm only 23 - so hopefully I'll start putting it on.
Not the wrong sort of weight though!

(Thanks for the motivation, ha!)

I'm working with a chick now. Following my program she's lost thirty pounds since February. She's extremely upset her husband is still a tubby fuck with bitch tits (her words). Got an over/under on how long that's going to last if he doesn't get his ass in the gym?

2 months!

Like Shane said, you're in your early 20s . . . inevitable weight gain is imminent! 

In high school I was 6'3, 165lbs. I'm now 6'3", 220 lbs! 

So yeah . . . get into the routine / lifestyle of working out now because weight gain is inevitable as your metabolism starts to slow down with age and as your lifestyle becomes more sedentary so you might as well start doing something about it now! 

Working out with a friend for the first week helped me. It got me into the habit, and I had fun that first week. The fun carried over from there.

What's with the put on weight anyway business? Inevitable weight gain? BAH!

I was once 142 in college (one rowing weigh-in) at 6'-2" not good. I fattened up to around 150, and stayed there...well into my forties. Yea, I saw other guys my age gain weight, some of it healthy. They looked like men, not a skeleton like me. Made me jealous, and mad.

Once day driving with my wife we passed a muscular jogger, and I saw her turn her head to follow him. "Caught you!" I said. Her defense "it was all that muscle...in motion". 

You can wait and see if you want; I have no idea of your genetics. I did that and it didn't happen, and regret I didn't start sooner.

Motivation? Read The Iron by Henry Rollins. To me it sums up why I do it.

Also Brett has some good blog posts here on how strength training is one of the switches of manliness.

As for training at the end of the day; I would not recommend it. My energy levels are down, and I'd rather hit the bar rather than lift one. Also an awful time at the gym, as everyone else is there. Knucklehead central.

I go at lunch, or I know the morning before work is also a great time. All you need is an hour, with 45 minutes devoted to the real effort.

Good luck!

Points for bringing up Rollins.

Fuck Rollins. He takes himself way to seriously. Spoken word? Come on. You used to 3-chord songs about having TV parties, Henry. And that stuff was better, too!

I came upon the piece years ago, barely knowing who he was, and it spoke to me. It gave deeper meaning to my quest than preparing for some sport, or developing myself to be more attractive.

If you can't relate, count yourself lucky.

Still better than that shit the Dali Lama spews.

Whatever work you do in the gym is wasted if you're not putting in the work in the kitchen. There is nothing anyone here is going to say that is going to motivate you to put in the hard work and time to make changes. If its not in you then you won't do it.People don't like to put in the work which is why the gyms are crowded around New Years and almost empty by March. If your'e going to do it the motivation has to come from inside.
