    hi guys...i must say the guys ive seen here are soooo hot. they inspire me to keep at it. ive been trying to get bigger for the last 6 months or so and its worked as i expected it to but now i have to shed a few lbs that ive gained from eating just to gain some muscle size. ive started doing cardio and im not sure how much cardio is too much or too little or what to eat so i dont lose any size ive worked hard to gain. my yahoo id is muscleoflove05 if anyone is willing to unconfuse me id love to chat with you. if i dont watch my figure noone else will. Just once id like to know how it feels to be looked at like some hot piece of meat.

    Come over to my place and I'll look at you!
    I bet you do look fantastic. You have the perfect body type for body building.
    I swim laps 4 times a week to burn calories and it really works. Plus it's very relaxing. But I had to take some lessons so I could learn to swim correctly with less effort.
    I follow the Zone and the Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle diets.

    A few misconceptions here...
    First..you don't need to lose any weight to begin working out with weights
    weight training will get you where you wanna be cardio is good but in no way a replacement for a good workout schedule
    and last is diet...a good sound healthy diet is essential

    5'10"? 165?

    First thing, you need to start eating. I wouldn't worry about getting lean until you're at least 200. You're terribly thin now.

    The increased muscle mass will burn more food, and help you get lean, provided you eat enough.

    The saying goes, "you have to fuel the furnace."

    Cardio 4 times a week, up to 45 minutes, won't hurt you, but, since you are underweight now, you really should get your calories up, get some mass on, and then let the mass lean you out on its own....if you're wanting to be that "piece of meat."

    I am going to take a different tack here.

    I think you need to first define what you mean by "muscular". Do you mean "beefy"? Do you mean "body builder" (as in Arnold Schwarz.) Or do you mean well-defined muscles, in a body that looks like it's actively athletic for some sort of outdoor activity, like triathlons, rock climbing etc.?

    If it's the latter, I will disagree (it's rare, I must admit... :-) ) with chuckystud. 5'10 1/2" and 165 would be perfect for a well-defined, muscular triathlete who has to move his body over distance as well as be strong. My personal goal is that sort of physique.

    Anyway, no matter what, I think you need to define a "target look" and then see what you need to do to get it...healthily of course...no steroids or quick fixes.
