Ectomorphs

Hi again Ladies and gentleman,
Now seriously how much bulk can you stack on if you're an ectomorph(Without the help of roids) Since where naturally skinny people with high metabolism. I mean I'm putting on weight, I'm 6'3" and up to 86Kg nowBut seriously am I just deluding myself in trying to get to around the 100kg mark oneday?

My Dad was like me when he was younger, a rake. Then in his 30's he stacked on weight, but it ain't muscle, he's now I 100kg, 6'1" blubber man. I'm concerned that it's just genetics...

    IMO, eat man eat. Make sure you get at least your bodyweight in grams of protein and eat everything else under the kitchen sink. You dont need to worry about gaining too much fat...because you should be able to burn it off easily with you high metabolism. You could also focus on the lower rep range in your routined. Example. 4sets/Reps...8,6,4,2. Theres a good site for watching your calories its called fitday.com. Based on your weight, aim for 4000-5000cals per day.

    eat plenty (4K+ cals BUT CLEAN!) and look at a mass routine like 5x5 focusing mostly on compound lifts

    Deluding yourself - no. Not at all. If you think that your Dad being out of shape is a direct result of genetics then yes, you're deluding yourself. His shape is a result of his diet, exercise and liftstyle.

    I would say getting to 100Kg one day will be no problem for you, just stick at it.. Dont expect results overnight (or in a few months time) or you'll get disheartened. Putting on muscle mass is a long term thing, but you'll get there with consistant training and attention to diet.

    Ectomorph or not, at your height 100kg is definately achievable. Good luck.

    You can pack on some pounds Bro. It takes a bit more effort than a mesomorph but you can do it. Check out these tips...www.thehouseofpain.net/bodybuilding/articles/hardgainer.html

    I'm about the same as you Stickman except I'm 6ft 5ins. I believe it is possible as long as we eat right and work hard. The only way to find out will be when you're squatting, benching and deadlifting, among other excercises, an awful lot more than you are now. If you can put on 6lb of muscle you can put on 12lb and so on. Maybe there will be a limit, but I know I'm nowhere near mine.

    It's definately possible :) I used to be 6'3" and 70 Kg (I think that was under weight) 3 years ago, now i am reaching to dizzy heights of 90 Kg+ ;) Make a little Excel spreadsheet with it all in and look at the line going up to the land of the triple figures :o!
