    Hey as my subject says is that im kinda worried well its more of im extremely worried. you see I've been working out since I first joined this site I've hired a personal trainer who looks like he would rip an elephant in half by his pinky and I've "thought" i was doing "well" until the first week of my sessions with him, I've weighed in about say 190lbs and no muscle mass besides that of a none working out typer person.....But after the first time I lost 36 pounds and got a hair line crak in my upper arm, He said this was normal and that it would happen on the first time....Then second time came around two weeks later and i got another crack but on my other arm, he says its a normal thing for males my age who never had any type of training....Here is my problem....its been two years later and Im weighting at 110lbs and im 6'3....Were still training and my arms feel more like congelled noodles then muscle....And besides the fact that im not getting anywhere i've spent over 150,000 dollars on this trainer.....His 3 year old daughter can retire at the age of 10.

    So what do I do?

    Go see a doctor about the brittle bones. It sounds serious. And no, it's not normal.

    As for your trainer.. Did you explicitly tell him you wanted to get muscular? Without knowing the details of your routine, I'm assuming he's got you on some sort of weight loss and general fitness program.

    I've told him I wanted to get muscular, im the only male in my entire family that has no muscle at all. All he was ws quote.

    "This will help you, your bones are weak and this makes them stronger don't like my teachs I will just leave."

    but he's the only trainer here in miramichi new brunswick,

    Resistance training does help strengthen your bones. But they should not be breaking/cracking.

    Your trainer sounds like an ass.

    You're 6'3 and you weigh 110 lbs?

    And you've spent $150,000 on a trainer after your bones in both arms cracked?

    I'm extremely confused, none of that even sounds right.

    If you're injured go see a doctor, if your trainer's not helping you then you should probably have learned enough about the gym in 2 years to work in a way that feels comfortable to you.

    Ditch him. He is taking your money and you are getting no results. The concepts behind exercise and training are not THAT difficult to understand.

    I would also look very hard at what his qualifications are.

    When you talk about cracks in your arms do you mean actual bone fractres or cracking sounds? It doesn't sound in any form natural. When weight training you do load the skeletal system but the aim must be to progressively overload the muscular system not cause the skeleton to fail.

    See a doctor-it won't cost 150,000. Sounds like he took you for your money-not sure hwy you stayed with him so long and why it cost so much?? Was he a live in trainer who made your meals?? Somethings off??? Maybe you should seek a therapist as well. I mean that in the nicest way!!icon_idea.gif

    Write this whole story into a screenplay. You could recover all your losses before the first tv spinoff. I've heard some whoppers, but American audiences would eat this shit up.

    Also, go see a psychiatrist, if you are in this much need of personal affirmation.

    How do you know about these cracks? Have you had your arms xrayed? Did the doctor not say or do anything?

    I want to see pics besides some childhood pic

    I'm seriously in the wrong line of work. If there are people out there willing to give up $150K, I'll be more than glad to take it. icon_lol.gif

    To piggy back on Lostboy.... yum... I mean, to piggy back on Lostboy's post, this does smack of bullshit.

    Your profile, last updated in January, says you are three inches shorter and forty pounds heavier. What's up with that?

    6'3 and 110lbs is not possible.

    I had an anorexic friend that was 5'10 and 118 lbs. He was skeletal and almost dead. No muscle strength to even walk. This sounds impossible to me. A few of us are smelling BS man. Post a pic cause I have a hard time with your stats judging by my friend. There is no way you could be walking with 110lbs. Prove me wrong please with a pic.

    Hey everyone, the docs said the reason im not gaining much weight is because of my meds I've been taking for my depression after my father passed away, they said if I stop taking them it should make my entire body back to normal, and that the cracks in my arm are just a side effect as well and that the meds were causing my veins to wither and those looks like cracks in the x rays .
