    I'm kinda having a problem. I'm 6'1 and a 1/2" and I'm usually around 205-210 lbs. I mean, I am not ridiculously big, you can see my abs, there is a lot of definition in my arms and legs, but why am I so heavy? I'm not a body builder. I diet, I cut out all meat 6 months ago and I've become so thin that sometimes my ribs stick out to the point that I look a little anorexic. But I'm still 210. WTF? For real.

    50-60 push ups is pretty good, I could max out around 70-80, but I normally do 50-60 push ups in about 10 sets, so thats 500-600 push ups a day to keep my chest, back, and whole upper body strong.
    Chin ups are awesome.
    Weights are beneficial.
    Creatine isn't that needed.

    For biceps, you could do curls to increase the muscle size and strength

    If you could see abs and ribs, then your body fat % is consider average-low around your core area.

    You should consider doing a routine that consist of cardio to help build your heart rate, increase your stamina and burn fat, almost mix it with strength training exercises to build muscles (Muscles help burn the fat quicker).

    Around 6"2, you have an excellent frame and would be really fit at 180-190; therefor you're really close to accomplishing a great task.

    You're eating good, and work/school/family/friends may get in the way of your exercise.

    Go for a run, 10 laps around the park, block, or anything in your area. Come back to your crib and eat something, rest the body for 20-30 minutes and do a little variety of work outs at your house. (push ups-max out, do 3 sets, sit ups or planks, lunges).

    I think its achievable for you, hopefully you come back with the best results.
    Peace.

    I got long arms too for a 5"10 guy, which makes it harder to get the full range of motion on my work out.

    Do it 3-5 times a week if you want to see max results, but just for a busy person, 3 times a week is good.

    All your chest exercises

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Us Dominicans don't have that chest build...its genetics. LOL, but don't worry mayne, we gotta other things to replace that. Just work every muscle, there may be muscles you're superior at compared to muscles, do everything for optimal results!


    For gaining, it takes a lot of discipline and dedication to your diet.

    Just keep increasing your calorie intake, basically just meaning to eat BIGGER than what you ate yesterday.

    To help boost calories make a high calorie smoothie with NESTLÉ CARNATION Instant Nonfat Dry Milk , bananas, orange juice, ice cream and some water .
    It also help adding cheese to more foods and other "extras". like sour cream on baked potatoes, gravy on meats, butter on vegetables, mayonnaise on sandwiches, cream cheese on fruits.

    All nuts are usually very high in calorie, and healthy.
    snack on nuts alot. (no homo)


    You should be eating at least 6 times a day with meals 3 hours apart from each other. Lets say
    1. 7:00am
    2. 10:00am
    3. 1pm
    4. 4pm
    5. 7pm
    6. 10pm.
    Your total caloric intake should consist of
    Protein – around 25% of total caloric intake. This include eggs, milk, cottage cheese, yogurt, chicken, lean red meat, fish and turkey.
    Carbohydrates – around 50% of your caloric intake. Good choices include brown rice, potatoes, beans, whole grain breads and cereals and pastas, oats, fruits and vegetables.
    Fats – 25% of your caloric intake that include olive oil, fish oil, nuts and natural peanut or almond butter.


    Breakfast: oats, eggs, fruits, cottage cheese, yogurt, high protein cereal, high protein pancakes, etc

    Mid morning and mid afternoon snacks: cottage cheese, yogurt, pop top cans of tuna, chicken or salmon, sandwiches, homemade protein shakes or bars, fruit, nuts, etc

    Lunch and Dinner: chicken or lean red meat or fish or turkey with potatoes or brown rice or vegetables or beans, etc

    Before bedtime: cottage cheese, milk, yogurt, peanut or almond butter, eggs, nuts, etc

    I know friends that took creatine, I don't take that shyt, I'm all natural screw that garbage. I think lifting every other day is pretty good, to give your body a rest and so that your cells can regenerate properly.

    Seems cool, but I think some of those machines are still good to use. I have used one or two in the past.
