    Intro to all

    Hey all. Iím a 23 y/o dude whoís looking for a little bit of guidance on some gains. Iím about 175-180 right now and not in that great of shape. Ideally, Iíd like to be right around 200lb. I came here to see if I can find some information and guidance on what gear is gonna most benefit me and my desired goals. I eat quite a bit and donít gain a ton of weight(endomorph? I canít remember which is which right now). Iíd like to get stronger and be at about 200. As soon as Iím done with this post Iím gonna dive into the forum and hopefully find the info I need. Feel free to message me with any advice or clarifying questions.

    So you're hear to find out more about gear and how to get to 200 lbs? You dont need gear to get to 200 lbs, you need a proper diet, training and rest.

    If you are a "Want it all and want it now" guy, gear is a good way to get that. Just remember, once the gear is gone, most gains will follow. Now if you are in this for the long haul, the knowledge you get here will stay you for your entire journey.

    For sure. I’m averaging about 4,000 calories a day or so. I figure that should be good as I’m only working out 3-4 times a week right now.

    Pay attention to the scale. If it's not moving, get to eating.

    No 3x a week, I'm 45 yrs old and do 5x a week. At 23 your body should easily be able to handle 4-5.

    Welcome Ado,
    Stick around, read up on some of the member training logs, work on mastering your diet, etc. There is a *lot* more that will yield quality long term results before the word gear enters your vocab. Otherwise it will be an up and down and you'll end up where you started or worse.

    Welcome to the UG. Start writing down everything you eat and see where you are really at. I get it, I have to eat non-stop to put on weight, it's what you have to do. At 23 I wouldn't mess with anything unless you already know you're a genetic freak and you can make a living from BB. From your intro it doesn't sound like that is the case. Read everything you can, train and eat like a mad man, give that some time and then see if you want to go to the next step. Good luck!
    I work really hard to look this average.
