    So I have been working out steadily for just over a year. I am 6'2 and weigh about 175lbs, and have a size 30 waist. I am trying to gain mass to get a more muscular and more defined build. I was thinking I should goal myself at 200lbs. I guess my questions is, based off my current look and build, is 25lbs more muscle a bit much? I want to look ripped, but not too massive.

    Dude, if I looked like you, I'd jizz in my pants every time I walked by a mirror.

    25 pounds of muscle isn't an easy undertaking, with that said..you at 200..you'd look great..Clean bulk it, and lift like a beast. All the best...BUD

    Make attainable goals. Without drugs, it'll take you several years to reach the goal you've described (25 lbs of lean muscle). Work in smaller increments to stay motivated. Then if you reach a lower weight and love the way you look (maybe 190 is your sweet spot!) then it won't feel like you didn't make your goal. Good luck!

    You're not going to wake up one morning with 25 lbs of extra muscle mass. You gain it a little at a time. So, no need to obsess over what your goal "should" be - just keep adding muscle until you think you're big enough.

    It may turn out that you don't really want that much mass - and it may turn out that isn't enough. Luckily, it's your decision, and you can change your mind at any time.

    Yeah, 20 lb gain is perfect for a guy your height. 4 lbs of gain per month is doable just by doing heavy squats for the growth hormone "whole body effect" . You will need to change your lifestyle to maintain it so hang out with big guys and copy their behavior . For example a twink's bowl of cereal breakfast becomes 4 eggs with home fries, a bowl of oatmeal, a glass milk and a banana.

    For 6'2" it won't be "too massive" by any means, and in fact you MIGHT want to pack on a bit more after that. Get to 200 and see how you like it first. But you definitely won't see yourself as too big.

    I eat and eat and I can tell you that it is difficult to get muscularly massive. You can get fat massive very easily.

    I've talked quite a bit with OP. One of the (dis)advantages of being tall is that you can add lots of muscle without looking like a Michelin Man. With 200lbs OP will still be quite lanky, I speak from experience (I'm 6'2 199lbs 7% body fat)
