I am 5’9”. Age 48 years old and weigh 165 lbs. I want to get to 180 lbs., but it seems that I just can’t do it.
I have been training for 20 years. I have a lot of energy. I take a lot of vitamins and liquid protein, but I can’t get past 165 pounds.
I am medium bone structure. Thinness does run in my family, but I will not accept this fact. I know something can be done to gain weight. I do not, and will not, take any drugs of any kind. I live a 100% natural life. I never get sick and feel better each passing day, but I can’t gain any weight.
Please try and help me to reach my goal by this summer. I talked to many bodybuilders all these years – and they told me that you are the best.
I can’t imagine why you want to weigh 180 lbs. at your height. I am 5 feet 8 ½ inches tall and I weigh 165-168 lbs. I wish I could keep my weight there at present!
I know for a fact that you are confused as to what is a good body! Did you ever stop to think that neither weight nor measure win Physique Contests? They judge them entirely visually.
I maintain that if you are unhappy with your physique it is because you do not have the proper proportions.
The measure of a man’s physique is not what he weighs or measures but total symmetry.
