Default new user and quick ?

hey guys, i'm new to the forums, i've been lifting for 1 year seriously. i'm 6'3 150lbs lol, yeah i look anorexic. anyway quick question [i already did a search] - i have a wide profile from the front, i'm tall with wide shoulders, wide hips.. but i have a small rib cage, no side profile, no back, do i just need to keep working back until it comes along??? anyway i'll put up two pics i have on hand at the sec. and another quick question - if i am only supposed to do say 5-6 sets on a small muscle group, and that 5-6 set does not fatigue, for example, i'll feel like i didn't work them enough the next day, am i still stimulating new growth at all?
stats: 6'3 150lbs
bench - 225x2
squat - 245x8x3
deadlift - 225x10x4
tricep overhead dumbbell- 90x10x3








all i have atm, yes my chest is fubar'd. i suffer from one of the severest cases of pectus excavatum ever lol, so you try benching 225 with 1 pec.

Looking at your stats...your deadlift is small compared to the other big 2. And if I'm reading it right, you're doing 225lbs for 10 reps for 4 sets? Do a 5x5 or a 3x5 and jack that weight right up and your back will grow...I've never gotten success from doing high reps on deads.

If your intensity (% of 1RM used for your working sets) and your frequency is good then you will grow. That's a huge generalization because there are other factors such as diet, rest, etc that play a role in muscle growth as well. Anyway, how you "feel" the next day is not a good indicator of the effectiveness of your workout. You can use that muscle fatigue/pain feeling to kinda judge how you're adapting to a new routine, or judge how much volume you can handle without feeling like dying the next day...but thats just about all its good for.

Bench is mainly tricep and shoulder power, surprisingly enough chest is almost worked as a secondary muscle. If you can handle doing dumbbell flyes I would suggest trying those out to fill your chest.


Great progress thus far!

Welcome to the site. Good job Kane.

The only thing I would add to what Kane said at this point is if you want to get big as possible don't focus on "small muscle groups". The body works as a whole. Treat is as such and if you're like the vast majority of people this will get you the best results (plus the added benefit of a body that actually lives up to it's size).

Read the "Why Aren't you Growing" sticky.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

just wanted to post a quick update, and didn't want to start a new thread.

i'm up 11lbs since 9/16.

I noticed something strange I wanted you run past you guys. I'm 6'3 162lbs now, yet i have the mostly the same measurements as my friend who is 6'4 195lbs with the same 8-9% bf as me... wtf? he looks alot bigger... he's only stronger than me in squats/lower body workouts. i'm gonna post body part, then my measurement, then his, then my new pics.

neck - 16.5 / 16.5
chest- 41.5 / 40 - i have a bigger chest and missing a pec !
arms - 14.5 / 15
waist - 29 / 34
thighs - 23 / 24
calves - 14 / 17 - i realize i have no calves ok lol.
forearms - 12.4 / 13

but he's got 30lbs on me. wtf?
ok for my new lifts and pics
bench - 245x2 - up 20lbs
deadlift - 275 5x5 instead of 225 4x10
squat - 285 3x6-7
oh yeah, i started that NHA stack on 9/17 the day after i posted.

You see that kind of thing all the time like with your friend. If you're both the same bf% yet his waist is 34 to your 29 then it simply looks like he has a larger frame, bone is heavy. Also some people can be denser muscle wise depending on the way they train. All sorts of things, really rather than the sort of "pumped" muscle that can come from training with lighter weights. I'm just speculating though. I wouldn't dwell on it .

I'm always watching guys in the ufc where you'll see two guys of virtually the same height and weight and yet there will be one who looks tiny in terms of muscle compared to the other.

Keep job!
