    Of course it's possible.

    I don't know where this myth came from that you have to 'bulk' to increase muscle mass, it may be true for experienced lifters but it certainly isn't for beginners

    I certainly wont live long enough to find out !!!

    some people are naturally (in a genetic sense) lean.


    if genetic can be a sense.

    Genetics play such a huge part imo in what you see in the gym - we all have a friend who looks better than we do when they either don't even train, or do, but don't have a clue what they are doing. Chances are, the guy in your gym isn't on some miracle drug stack, and doesn't have a secret training routine - he was just lucky in what 'mom and pops' gave him. Yes he may or may not be on roids, his diet may be good or ****e, all those things are trivial. But the one thing you can be sure of if a guy in your gym is getting huge whilst staying lean is that he has above par genetics (imo).

    He may have manipulated his diet to suit himself and know alot more about his diet and training than you do of yours.

    pred be honest with me what has it took for u to do it? cos when i do all this so called, "to get big eat big" all i get out of it is more fat than muscle dispite having my diet clean. i did ask this guy i think hes about 20yrs old and he just said oh i use that creatine stuff and have some shakes, lol.

    Hey. I used to be like that after about 2 years of weight training. I had a very high metabolism and couldn't put on any fat what so ever. Yet, eating plenty of protein and good carbs kept my muscles growing at a steady rate. However i didnt like having to look for 28" trousers! and tucking in a shirt when wearing a suit looked so stupid. The shirt wud look silly tucked into my tiny waist. Also a few mates kept saying I still looked skinny when wearing a top. I agreed.

    Lol it was then that i applied for a job at kfc. The chicken everyday gave me more calories than i could possibly burn! This made me quite lean but not 'fat' looking.

    THEN for about 6 - 8 months i became lazy and stopped training properly. After a load of constant beers and takeaways at uni, i developed a bit of a stomach. The kind that just wont shift!

    I broke up for the summer about a month ago and cut out ALL junk and dedicated myself to working out again. Now i'm in great shape. I look really lean and my strength has improved a great deal. My mates in a similar condition and were both aiming to be approx 12 stone in weight before our final year comencing the end of sept! (im hovering at 11 stone at the moment)

    Ofcourse im having to eat loads and this isnt helping to display the abs, but my main aim is to bulk up now and start the cutting diet once i get back.
