When I say bodybuilding, don't mean competing or anything. I don't care about being super ripped, I just want a thick, solid build, and a decent level of strength; so I can actually fill out my clothes, and not look like a "walking clothes hanger", as I was once told. I'm not a tall guy (5'7), so I always figured 175-180lbs would make me look decent.

At 29 you have many years of muscle building in you. Start lifting consistently, eat and sleep right and the mass will come. It's not easy but nothing in life worth having comes easy.

Well now, I'm running with the conviction that 37 (with no lifting or even sports background) wasn't too late to start!

So 29 had darn well better be alright, lol.

40 used to be the age when people were considered to be over the hill; we still see people building muscle at 70y/o and above and yet those in their late 20's seem to worry more...

Of course, age doesn't really matter, you can see those in their late teens that haven't built any muscle because they have no idea how to go about it even though they have lots of testosterone (guys at least) and just have to lift, eat and rest.


Oh, and no, it's not too late.

You are very close to the exact position I was in when I was your age. When I was 29, I was 5'7" and around 135. Always putzed around in the gym on and off for years after high school and college with varying degrees of minimal success. I was convinced I was a "hardgainer" and couldn't be more muscular because of genetics.

What a bunch of BS that was. I found this place, I started benching, squatting, dead lifting and pressing every week. I ate a lot more food and I increased my weights every week. I've gained more than 40lbs in 2 years, and most of it is muscle.

These guys have it right. You don't need to be in the gym with some crazy program. You just need to show up every week and lift more than the week before then go eat your food and rest. It is that simple and I guarantee if you do the scale will move.

Thanks for the words of encouragement. I feel alot more positive about my possibilities in lifting. I think the biggest thing is that I need to stop comparing myself to other people.

I'm presently finishing up my graduate degree, so I live in a college town; and it seems like every other guy here is built and in thier early twenties. I began to think that if "it" hadn't happend by now, it never would.

I just gotta figure out how to eat more

Eating more is easier than you think, especially if you like dairy. Let us know any questions you have!

I've been trying to eat more. It has helped, but I am curious about some of the foods you, and others, have found that have helped put on weight.

Based on calorie intake calculators, many indicate that I need to eat nearly 3k calories. It just seems difficult to get it all in around life.

Gidday mate

BTB did a good video on how to increase your calories.

Off the top of my head, Whole milk goes a long way, real Cheese on everything, Protein shakes with some heavy cream and peanut butter in them, something like that anyhow. You should look it up.
