"It all depends on what you want.  At 5'10, I'd rather be built like a 340 lb defensive lineman than 180 lbs trim and toned.  I'm currently neither.  "

"It's already been said, but Stronglifts 5x5 has worked well for me. High Protein is important. Make sure to get in lots of vegetables too. Also--this is just from what I've read, I'm no expert--the comment earlier about eating 3-5g of…"

"To be blunt, and having dealt with the opposite problem, don't get all hot and bothered about being slim.  Big isn't everything, toned and fit will count for a whole lot more in the long run than broad shoulders and big guns."

"Only thing i've heard that has not been mentioned is rest, oddly enough. When our really good rowers are bulking up they actually train about half the normal times a week, but they go at it harder. The rest allows your body to build up again,…"

David replied to Jake's discussion I'm skinny and tired of it.
"Lift heavy things and eat food. Ending a set with a breakdown is always a good way to finish and ensure that you've gotten the most out of your workout."

Mike S. replied to Jake's discussion I'm skinny and tired of it.
"That seems like a lot of protein prior to the workout. By just those two you have listed, it would put him close to his daily requirements. I'd suggest a little less protein along with a carbohydrate prior to workout. Spread your protein needs…"

Forge replied to Ulises Torres's discussion I am responsible for co-sleeping
"Agreed. But this applies to everything you do with your kid. If you at any point cave to screaming and crying and throwing a fit... well now your kid learns that it's really just a matter of throwing a long and loud enough fit. Granted, I…"
