      thanks, brother. I've been working out 3 times a week with chest every other time.
      Would you just recommend doing chest 3 times a week?
      When I do chest it's just incline db press, 3 sets of 6-8, 8-10, 10-12 and weighted dips 6, 8, 10 reps. I also throw in as many pushups as a I can before leaving the gym on these days.
      As for core, I do 3 sets of 13-15 for side to side knee ups, might try adding more sets, or planks

      How would you go about it without looking fat? I've tried gaining a pound a week, but I just end up looking like shit after I get past 190 lbs. Earlier this year I was 170 lbs with more defined abs and girls would actually complement that

        Don’t listen to that poster jfc lol. Never just “gain 40lbs asap” that’s some moronic shit. Some people have better propensity for holding muscle mass, that might not be you. It is entirely possible 190 is your limit while looking reasonably lean. Slow and steady wins the race

          you wouldnt. thats a 10+ year/life long goal.

          No it's not. The biggest mistake you guys make is messing around at low bodyweights. Just eat and lift heavy and you can push your weight way up in a short order. Or you can spend years trying to get a fraction of the gains.

                Listen, I'm being so honest here: OP looks like he lifts and you don't. You look like a big boy, and you don't look fat, but he looks he goes to the gym and you look like a fat big guy who lost weight.

                Basically skinnyfat for 6'2" guy. OP looks like he has definition everywhere under his light layer of fat. His biceps are bulging more than yours without flexing. I think OP should cut, then bulk to the same BF% he's at right now then repeat. Keep steady with that and OP will look ripped.

                You need to just lift more, and not gain any more weight or you'll look stupid. Honestly a cut wouldn't mean much for you, because you were probably really skinny for your height before. Once you get some visible muscle, cut and then tell me you don't look better at a lower bf%

                NTA, but OP "looks like he lifts" in the sense that he goes to the gym and randomly moves some weight around, and even then only when he is shirtless. He does not look big or like he lifts clothed, nor is he strong. If those downsides are worth a lean shirtless physique for him, then that is completely fine. Some people do spend a lot of time on beaches and whatnot.

                did some more aesthetics focused work (though even without that, really) he'd look bigger and stronger in any clothed setting. The little bit of extra fat is not visible when wearing a shirt. He is right, natties shouldn't bother getting too lean.

                If you want to do that then you're on the wrong board, you should try IST. If you want to be fit, healthier, lift more AND look better. Then lift weights AND control your diet. There's no point in working out for "With a Shirt" goals in mind, just to make ladies sigh audibly when you finally do get naked.

                I don't get it. You're implying that caring about looks means that you should be on IST, but a lean ripped body is the epitome of caring about looks. You're giving up both size and strength to look aesthetically pleasing while nude. If you were lifting for health and practical use, then you'd be at a higher bf %. Sixpack visible leanness is not healthier and the dieting sucks.
                >"With a Shirt" goals in mind, just to make ladies sigh audibly when you finally do get naked.
                If you think that most women hate the idea of 15-20% bodyfat to the point of sighing, then you need to get off /LULZ/ and go outside. It's a very worthwhile "sacrifice" to make if it means that the tens of thousands of people that see you clothed have a better impression of you. Like, I don't get it, man. If you go to the gym you want to get strong and look strong, right? Why are you sacrificing literally everything just for a random b***h in your bedroom?

                I guarantee you op looks better than the other guy clothed too. Op has lower body fat so he probably has a more defined face whereas the other guys face is probably as doughy as his body

                OP would look like any regular sized dude with a slightly active lifestyle while clothed. If you prefer that, then that's good, but you don't have to waste time in the gym for that.

                You misunderstand. You wanna look better clothed? Get better clothes. You want a better body? Lift and Diet.

                Fitness combines Health, Aestheics, and Strength. All of these things matter, and you're focused more on Strength and appearing Strong, when in reality you're just fatter. Maybe that's goals for a Sumo Wrestler or a professional Powerlifter but those are niche groups to appeal to.

                It's not appealing only to women. It's about appealing to them at all. When I see you criticize OP who has posters in this thread already lusting after, yet you say that skinnyfat guy looks big, whose he appealing to? You? And look, I know those coombrain posters are gay and not women, but the point is if you can't recognize what a normal person thinks gym goer looks like: then you have body dsymorpha.

                I don't any sane person being honest could say OP is not a lifter.
                >you don't have to waste time in the gym for that.

                I want to look big and huge and have people think "that guy is strong". I want to mog others. Are you suggesting that I get padded clothes? Because anything but that will have you looking tiny as a lean natty.
                >who has posters in this thread already lusting after
                And offline none of them would see him shirtless and think twice about him. He'd blend into the masses and not stand out from your average teenager.
                >if you can't recognize what a normal person thinks gym goer looks like: then you have body dsymorpha.
                A normal person thinks that a gymgoer is like the huge roided up influencers. Yes, they'd say that OP lifts when he takes his shirt off, but they wouldn't be sure when they see him clothed. I see it happen all the time. It used to happen to me. I'm sure it happened to

                I am mostly talking about irl. If you are lean and skinny you will look ok in pictures but disappear irl. Whereas if you are big but not lean you will still look impressive irl. I would know I've done both.

                [...]
                This guy gets it. Looking halfway decent while big irl is a big accomplishment. You guys would shit on an NFL player if he posted here.

                Being lean makes your muscles look bigger and your face look more attractive. It’s also healthier for T production. You also are more athletic at leaner bf%.
                So basically leanpill gets: looks, health and athleticism
                Bloatpill gets: slightly bigger arms

                Here's the unfortunate news: people look at bodybuilders and think they're stronger than powerlifters. Of course it's usually not true, but it's undeniable that most people equate definition with strength more than mass. And in sense, they aren't wrong. Pound for Pound, OP be stronger for keeping a lower BF%.

                And your next few points just confirm what I just wrote. You want to appeal to powerlifters, you want to appeal to big burly men. You want to appeal to women with Huge Guy Fetishes. You don't want to appeal to everyone else. That's cool, that's fine. But please for the Love of God understand that you are a niche. A niche of a niche.

                Ask yourself why do athletes slim down at all? C'mon man. The fitness world is not dominated by Wrestlers and NFL Linebacks, it's just not. They're popular for good reason, but they're not the kings of Aestheics. I also see you didn't mention cardio or speed. I guess that's not fitness to (You), the lord of gains, right?

                Because, KEEP IN MIND, I didn't tell OP:
                >Hey, just put on 40lbs, no BIGGIE!
                And neither did I tell him to drop 20lbs either, because I don't necessarily think my fitness goals are the same as everyone else's. But being bigger is certainly not every athlete's goal either.

        Depends how fat you’re willing to get. Very few people can get to 220lbs at 6’1 and be lean. If you look like pic above at 180 it’s prob just not gonna happen as a natural. Which is fine, 220lbs lean is absolutely huge. Maybe if you were 6’4+

        what do you mean "just" ? human can naturally gain around 40-50lbs of lean muscle mass in your entire lifetime. slight variation in muscle building genetics and your frame etc. you already have lifted and put on some muscle so I actually dont even think that its possible for you to be 220 ever. Im not trolling, you can literally google and research it. That is pretty much the maximum amount of lean muscle mass it is possible to build and most people obviously dont achieve anywhere near that. We are looking closer to 20llbs if not less for the majority of people.

        Natural maximum with lean bf is height in cm - 100. So for you thats around 194lbs. So around 15lbs more lean muscle for your natty max. Thats actually very VERY reasonable looking at your physique, seems to be just in line with what I said. That wont take 10 years but I didnt bother to translate your height and weight to metric system at first but yeah you absolutely can never be 220lbs lean at 6'2.

    It's crazy cause I'm 6'0, also 180 but look so much worse than OP cause it's more fat than muscle compared to him. Wild how much the distribution matters. Looking good though OP.

    I don't think you're being honest about your height & weight.
    t. 6'2" 165lbs somewhere between skinnyfat and dyel

      His height/weight/physique seem reasonable to me. I’m 6’1” 175 and I have similar build. He may have a smidge more muscle mass than me.

        so you're telling me I'm like 20% bodyfat right now? I have chicken legs, my gf tells me she can see my spine when I bend over (I think she's full of shit), and my ribs are almost exposed. but I still have a solid layer of fat over my abs and my jaw isn't as defined as it could be.

          Idk, hard to tell without a photo. For some conformation, search for the navy body fat calculator using neck and weight measurements. It’s accurate enough.

            hard to do neck and waist measurements because I don't have the right kind of tape measure was using a flat band instead.

    you look good OP. at your height I think 190lb is maybe a healthier/strong weight. but aesthetically miring bro.
