Very funny. I will say tho, good job. Confused as to how you put on 30 pounds doing pushups and shit though.

Weighted pushups? So do you do pushups with a backpack filled with weights or something? How does that work exactly?

You seriously added 30 pounds of muscle by strictly pushups and pullups!!? This is pretty unbelieveable if true so I have a few questions...

1) How long did it take?
2) What is your complete pushup\pullup routine? Days\reps
3) Are you black?

Weighted pullups/chinups/dips. There is a belt where I can attach weight to. I usually put on a 45 weight.

It wasn't strictly pullups/pushups. I did those to help build my strength for other workouts, but I always dabbled in other exercises as well. I also did incline/decline bench presses, arm curls, squats, seated rows, you name it.

What I did was do pullups/pushups every day I work out no matter what body parts I'm working on for the day. When I started working out, I could barely do 10 pullups correctly, even assisted machine. Now I can do 15 normally with weights on.

Also, the weight I added wasn't all muscle. I usually go in bulking/cutting cycles to gain weight and tone out, so what I eat is extremely important. If you want to gain weight, you need to increase your calorie intake to be above what you are burning off for the day. You also need to increase your protein intake as that helps build muscle. But it is good to have some body fat on you, which is what I wanted.

1. I started lifting in late April, so it's been almost seven months.

2. Today, I go to the gym four times a week, so every time I do 2x15 pullups and 2x15 chinups with weights. I also do 2x15 situps with a 15 lb medicine ball. This is all in addition to the normal weight training I do.

3. Yes I am.

Now I have adjusted my routine from working out with friends, reading BB.com, and just experience. If you are just beginning, I would just do a normal routine with machines and make adjustments from there. And seriously, check out BB.com. They know what they are talking about there.

I'm 6"3 175 lbs pretty lean and toned but I want to put on more size and get to about 190 - 200 lbs range. I do curls, bench press, leg workouts involving different routines. Basically I usee free weights to work out my chest, arms, legs and shoulders about 4\5 days a week. I do 100 incline pushups sets of 10 in about ten to fifteen minutes but I only do this once a week. I used to do incline pushups every other day I was finding some results but than I was told I was overtraining my chest because I was doing incline pushups on top of my normal chest workout routine with free weights.

I'm glad I have heard from somebody that they do pushups\pullups everyday and still managed to find results. You didn't get intense soreness from doing pushups\pullups everyday? If so I don't think you should of continued? Would you advise doing pushups everyday besides the day I do my actual chest routine?

My shoulders and biceps are quite solid. My legs are my obvious genetic weakpoint that I'm trying to slowly improve. The thing that I want to make progress the most however is my chest because it has been a struggle since the day I worked out and it does not fit feel as strong or fit in with the other parts of my upper body. What do you feel has been the best routine\workout strictly for your chest?

Thanks for the website and I will be checking this out without question. Just wanted to get your own personal feelings and thoughts of what you have experienced since you have seen so many dramatic changes in your body. Thanks!

You just started?

Probably an illusion though. It's common to look bigger after a cut.
