"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.  "

"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…"
