I have seen some strong people at 165-185 range. My Buddy Squatted 500x5 at 175 a week out before his show and he looked big. Natty big anyway.I don't agree with these viewpoints entirely, if your 5'7 your not going to look good at all at 250 if you are clean. Im talking from a aesthetics point of view of course.

I'm with SeventySeven. I'm sure Miked96 is speaking mostly about guys who think lifting heavy and building a strong foundation is overrated and a waste of time. Being a guy who is naturally between the 170-180 lb range, I'm always striving to become stronger. I like being the guy who others don't think can lift much, I'm not one to walk around advertising that I'm a strong guy and lift weights. I know what I can do.

Me too..... I am natruallly around 170 to 175 and am always trying to get stronger. We can't all be 250 at 5' 8 or 5'9 that is tough to achieve

Trust me- it is easier to shrink than to grow.

Is it? It nearly killed me to go from 285 to 210, and I couldn't hold it there. I'm back to 265 now. At 165 I would be skeletal remains, like on that TV show Bones!

Great article - you know it's a good one when it sparks an equally good discussion. I have never had a problem gaining weight even tho I am a clean eating Celiac.

I see many articles pertaining to "Hardgainers" when there really is no such thing. They simply think they are eating enough but aren't. I say it is possible to eat enough no matter who you are. I have no problem eating a steak for breaky and leftovers all day. Being Celiac actually taught me how to do it.
