"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.  "

"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."

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."
