    Help wanted from meatheads

    Primal Fuel
    I have just done a trail marathon and as I like to keep my body guessing I am now embarking on a bit of beefing up. I am 5ft 10 and about 66kg and very lean. I have access to a gym. Advice and tips please.

    Buy the Kindle version. It's worth it by a long shot.

    Watch videos on youtube on how to do Deadlifts, Squats, and Benchpress. Throw in some pullups and you should be good to go.
    Use google to look up a rep and set scheme that works for you. Eat, and sleep a LOT. When you think you have eaten enough have another meal.
    Or go to the Library and check out Starting Strength, or Westside Barbell.
    Is this the kind of info you wanted?

    Yep, I think I need to eat more and lift heavy stuff with good form. youtube clips are a good idea and I'll get the kindle version of starting strength.

    Good book, especially for the in-depth info on the squat, dead, gym setup, etc. BUT it relies heavily on GOMAD for its results. GOMAD is a gallon of milk a day which will promptly make you strong, yes, but fatter than f*** too. Don't do it.

    Get the book for the exercise advice but skip the diet recommendations. Make it paleo instead.

    Love people who dispute things in the book without apparently having read it. GOMAD is for skinny 15-year olds who "can't gain weight." Nowhere does it say that GOMAD is appropriate for all trainees. I know. Because I own and have read the book.

    If memory serves, he said drink milk if you're a skinny boy.

    I have the 2nd edition. How the f*** would you know if I have read it or not? I have yet to see anyone that has followed that program and is lean. Although EVERYONE I have seen that follows it is fatter than f***. My observations.

    BTW, there is nothing new about that program. It's nothing different from the multitude of strength building programs out there.
