gaining muscle weight

Recommended Posts

I am 5'8" and 120 pounds, and although i am pretty strong I don't look strong. I look like a whimp. I can bench like 175. I was just wandering what would be the easiest way to "fill out". I eat a hell of a lot too. I eat around 3500 calories a day. I drink a lot of milk each day and one day I fugured out I ate about 150grams of protein. I do eat a lot of fatty foods also. I work out every other day. I do pyramid lifts for bench, I curl, and do sit ups. how could I fill out more without using drugs??? what should I eat and how much of it, and what excersises should I do?? thanks

How old are you? Let me see if I have this correct, you can bench 150% of your body weight but your concerned that others see you as a "wimp". Keep eating like that and you will not be 120 for long.

Ok, so your skeleton won't stop growing for three more years. Then you will fill out. Then you will begin the downhill slide.

Don't worry about it 007. Anyone with that kind of strength in proportion to body weight is definitely not whimpy. Bruce Lee was about your size, and nobody thought he looked whimpy. Since you are 15, and there are not many buff motocrossers around, I'll assume that alot of your motivation comes from wanting chicks to dig you. I know this because girls were the motivation behind just about everything I did at 15. Like you, I lifted and ate like a madman, but couldn't bulk up until about 20 years old. Before long, however, you will learn that most girls are much more interested in your "swimmer's body" than the bodybuilder type. Your time will come, lil bro 😢 .

Nitro Tech man....

Ripoff, man.

Lose the milk and switch to a calcium supplement.

Milk is for baby cows, and the older you get the worse it is for your body.

You are a badass for your age and size. Relax.

Read my ongoing "How To" and you'll be great. 😢😢

Your body may not be ready to fully mature yet, but you should still be capable of putting on 20+ pounds per year. Eat a lot, Lift heavy, Lift 3-4X per week, get plenty of recovery and don't overtrain. I had similar problems when I was younger, and no one would know it now. Don't try to cheat, it will only hold you back in the long run.

PS- Milk does a body good. Why do you think baby cows turn into huge raging beasts with more muscle than a corvette.

Contains roids! 😢

😢

How (and why) can a product sold OTC contain illegal substances?

Effective Jan 1, prohormones are now illegal.

Game-day notebook: Cloud sues supplement company

Sept. 28, 2003

By Jay Glazer

SportsLine.com Senior Writer

Patriots running back Mike Cloud has found little solace since being suspended by the NFL for testing positive under the league's policy on anabolic steroids. Heading into free agency, he found himself with minimal suitors, considering a potential buyer was forced to beware of his four-game ban.

But now, Cloud finally has a vehicle to fight back in order to salvage a piece of his reputation and some of the money he was forced to surrender.

Cloud's agent Jon Feinsod told SportsLine.com that his client this week filed a lawsuit against MuscleTech, the supplement company that produced the product that caused his positive test.

The former Boston College star's unfortunate situation began when he took a basic chocolate-flavored protein powder while with the Chiefs, then subsequently tested positive for metabolites of the steroid nandrolone. Nothing regarding nandrolone appeared on the label that would so much as hint at such an addition to the ingredients.

The league tested the product and found it to be the culprit and confirmed it appeared to be an innocent mistake. But the NFL has a zero-tolerance policy that has helped clean up the league from illegal steroids, and Cloud was nevertheless hit with a four-game suspension without pay.

Making matters worse, Cloud hit the open market with this stigma and was forced to inform any interested buyer of the ban before signing. Every team originally interested took their business elsewhere.

Instead of cashing in with a decent deal that could have been loaded with incentives, or a decent bonus, Cloud could only muster a league-minimum deal from the Patriots.

"The problem is that people will look at me and think I'm a cheater or say, 'There goes the steroid user,'" Cloud said at the time. "That's all they'll know about me when they hear my name, and it isn't true. That's going to be very difficult to change that image on my reputation."

At the time, several readers e-mailed SportsLine.com asking for the name of the product in order to prevent their kids or themselves from making a similar mistake. The name of the product was withheld in case Cloud decided to sue the company. But with the suit now filed, the name can be revealed.

The product is Nitro-Tech, a protein powder displayed prominently on several vitamin/supplement stores visited for this story.

According to the suit, laboratory analysis of the Nitro-Tech revealed it contained norandrostenedione and androstenediol, compounds that would produce a positive test for metabolites of nandrolone.

Cloud's lawsuit claims MuscleTech failed to disclose the addition of these substances on the product label.

According to the FDA'S official website, it is the sole responsibility of the supplement company to properly label its products. Cloud's story only helps solidify the argument the government needs to make it unlawful to mislabel products.

According to Cloud's suit, this is not the first time Nitro-Tech has caused a professional athlete to test positive for anabolic steroids. The suit says independent laboratory tests of multiple bottles also revealed the presence of the two steroid precursors.

Calls to two numbers for MuscleTech provided to SportsLine were not answered.

The NFL did not pre-warn Cloud and insists it cannot red flag products because of legal issues, especially if some products actually turn out not to be the culprits.

"I'm hoping that this lawsuit will accomplish several goals," Cloud said. "First, to vindicate my name and to hold MuscleTech responsible for its mistakes, and hopefully to prevent other athletes from having their reputations and careers harmed in this fashion."

The suit was filed in Cloud's home state of Rhode Island, the state where the product was purchased. Feinsod and Cloud's attorneys in this matter are expected to make a widespread announcement of the suit this week.

Cloud is eligible for reinstatement this week, but he will not play; he tore his calf in early training camp.

There you go! 😢

At that time, those chemicals were legal prohormones. Yes, they will produce a positive test result.

Effective Jan 1, 2005, all anabolics, both injectables and oral or transdermal prohormones, are banned and illegal except when prescribed by a doctor for specific conditions.

Even if MT mislabels the product, they cannot include an illegal substance and skate on penalties simply because they did not put it on the label.

If it has nothing to do with their multiple stomachs that enable them to digest grass, then my guess is bovine growth hormone. Hmm...I wonder if that's why we have so many 10-year-old girls with D cups.
