"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

You're starting out at a heavier weight than I did. In my opinion, that's a good thing. When I started training around 9 years ago, I was around 110 lbs. at 5'7 and 6.5 inch wrists. I am now 168 lbs. with 16 inch biceps (cold). I barbell curl (non-cheating) 100 lbs. for 8 reps, and bench press 235 lbs. for 8 reps. I've come a long way, and I'm sure if you stick with it, you will be able to surprise yourself with the gains you can make.

The most important advice I can give you is to PERSIST! Persist in diet, training, and rest. To set yourself apart from the "average" gym member, it takes an entire way of life to really develope yourself (assuming you are genetically typical and 'clean').

The sort of satisfaction one gets from transforming one's physique without using anabolics and to struggle and succeed to push your strength to the limits is like no other. Lots of luck with your training. Keep at it.

3 weeks, I can hold my breath for that long. Bust your hump for the next 3 years and then maybe you can get an indication of your potential.

Hey dont knock yourself!....A lot of times with some people muscular potential can only be assessed in retrospect-especially when one is starting out...it takes a really discerning eye to be even close to summing up someone's potential in a few words or less....

Forget that for now, focus on training hard, getting as strong as you possibly can in the basic exercises..... forget others, Fulfill YOUR potential and be absolutely confident in yourself and your training....

From what you listed, with a 7 inch wrist, id guess you have a skeleton that can support some major muscle in time....be patient, pick a routine and STICK to it and dont chop and change it all the time....these are mistakes i made and many others have...Good luck, all the best!

Thanks for the kind words..Yeh i have a pretty big frame to work with...Ive always been a husky guy...I measrued my arms again last night and my upper arms where 16" instead of 15" so hell im not goin to complain about that lol.....Im working hard and tryin not to get into the bad habits i had..Drinking alot was takin a toll on me. Im only 24 and already had high blood pressure and just had my gallbladder took out in november and most of the problems i have is linked to over eating and drinking and just not taking care of myself..

i turned 25 a few months ago and i am beginning to embark on a quest to fulfill my bodybuilding potential. im a pretty tall dude at 6'5" and relatively thin (my brother got all the genetics for building impressive muscle). i am in the same boat as you my friend...some days i get down on myself that i wont be some huge monster like casey, but i still manage to pick myself up and get my ass to the gym.

im never gonna get anywhere putting myself down. i think consistency, hard work and confidence will take anyone far in muscle building (and life). afterall, arnold was a pretty skinny dude and didnt show much potential for bodybuilding and look where he is (same with lou ferrigno).

good luck to you, my friend.

Arnold was winning bodybuilding contests as a teenager. How that "didn't show much potential" is beyond me.

If you want to get anywhere in this, don't compare yourself to others.
