I'm 6'3" and the lowest I could ever get was 225lbs as a junior in high school and that was well defined, no spare tire and a 34" waist. Since I went from being a mechanic hoisting engines, tranny's, axles etc around, to my consulting job I have put on a good 60lbs. Just broke out the heavy bag and stand the other day, now thinking about going back to the gym with a trainer friend till I get back in the swing of it. Hardest part will be giving up my starbucks habit, tried and tried for like 3 months now but every day I crave it :headshake

ive been on a weight gain cycle. i eat my body weight in protein a day. i scarf amino acids all day long, limit my cardio (im a marine so i have to run some what). and i have been lifting real hard. the hardest thing for me is diet, anyone can go to mcdonalds and put on 30 pounds of fat, but putting on lean muscle is a bitch.

Went in tonight and did a good hour an 30mins of chest. Started with dumb bells on the incline bench 3 sets 12-10-8 on the reps. started with the 55's and ended with the 75's. Did flat chest on the verticle chest machine where you load the 45lb plates. And did decline on the machine. Every workout I always squeeze in a few sets of legs and abs, b/c I never dedicate a full workout to either. And I try to do some pushups after every set. It was an ok workout. Gonna try to do a serious arm workout tomorrow.

6', 199lbs here. I do 5 protein shakes a day + 3 meals and limit my cardio. Putting on clean, lean muscle can be a real struggle.

Lean muscle is tough - that is why bodybuilders fatten up in the off season. A training buddy of mine used to eat KFC all winter and fatten up a bunch then for showtime he would rip off all that fat to reveal an unbelievably dense striated physique.

I have three shakes a day (75 grams of protein per shake) in addition to my other protein intake through regular food (i.e. fish, chicken and lean beef).
To answer the question of how to get huge that provokes a series of questions:
What do you define as huge? Guys say I am huge at 240 pounds - I disagree - when I trained beside Greg Kovacs one day he was 396 pounds - that's huge
I am assuming you want to get huge drug free (I have been on the dark side and it IS NOT worth it)
What committment level do you have? Takes a lot of hard work and devotion with little interference
Timeframe to do so? You are looking at years - I was once told that a drug free lifter can put at most five pounds of lean muscle on a year.

I can help guys with this but getting big is tough - you have to eat, train, eat, eat, eat - I used to eat well over 300 grams of protein a day. Guys getting ready for the Olympia were eating over 500 a day - I don't think people realize how hard even gettin 200 a day can be plus you stink like crap all the time.
