      NEWS: Discord Server & Clubs (aka Groups) are back!   08/19/17

      Hello everyone I'm back with a couple big updates! Firstly we now have a Discord server, this is a real-time chat messaging client you can run on your phone, desktop, or anywhere. It's a pretty powerful desktop application that enables people to chat together, and with multiple channels you can find people interested in what you're interested in. If you don't already have a Discord account it's pretty easy to get one, just click the following invite link to get started: https://discord.gg/U93PYnB Secondly I'm proud to announce the return of Groups, it's been renamed to Clubs and is now available here: https://muscle-growth.org/clubs/. This system is entirely user generated and allows users to create groups of their own based on any subject they want. Go ahead and try it now, visit the link above to get started if you want to create or join a group!   As always thank you to all of our donators and Patreon contributors who keep the forums going!

  1. Hey man, thanks for the follow!

  2. What build is your partner?

    I'm muscular, heavyset and smooth. He's slender, hairy and slim. Apart from height, we could not be less alike.
  3. Bodybuilder boyfriend.

    I've only dated one. In my experience, it was just like dating anyone else, except his body was great and we never went out for dinner. He was a normal guy with bigger muscles.
  4. How do I go from Bones to Buff?

    To add to what's been said, the key is consistency. You have to train consistently, add weight consistently, eat consistently, sleep consistently. What this means is: eat your target calories every day. Go to the gym every day that you're supposed to. Follow your workout every time. Add weight when it's appropriate to add weight. Get at least 8 hours sleep a night. Not to mention: this will take a long ass time. We're talking years, not days or weeks or months. Some guys just don't gain weight easily, but that doesn't mean you can't do it - it just means you have to make the effort, consistently, for extended periods of time. Don't start now expecting to be beach buff in 8 weeks. You have to be in this for the long haul. The good news is that maintaining the discipline will absolutely get easier. I started 8 months ago now and the routine is beginning to become habit - rather than effort - but I've still got a hell of a way to go. The easiest thing you can do is: Calculate your TDEE at https://tdeecalculator.net/. This is the rough amount of energy you expend in a day. Follow their guidelines for adding calories. Sign up to Myfitnesspal (http://www.myfitnesspal.com/) and use it to track everything you eat. Bulking is easier than cutting but you still need to make sure you're doing it right. If you need a workout, try Stronglifts 5x5 (http://stronglifts.com/5x5/). It sounds as though you're a beginner, so take beginner steps. Stronglifts is a program that guides you through barbell training, gets you accustomed to training on specific days, guides you through adding weight, etc. It's great for building strength and you *will* end up lifting heavy. After a few months of this you may decide you want to go for a more bodybuilding route, but remember - you're in this for the long haul. Build up your strength first and master the basics before you move onto more intense programs. EDIT: Also the app is amazing, so 100% use that. Take pictures and date them. Same pose, same position in the mirror, same levels of clothing. Do this once a month and set a reminder on a calendar to check it in a year. THAT is how you'll see progress. Until then, just enjoy watching weight (both yours and the bar) go up. Good luck!
  5. Any vegetarians here?

    Made the switch to full blown veggie about 6 months ago. Haven't looked back, but getting protein is a bit of an issue - semi solved with shitloads of beans and whey powder. Anyone else? Would love to hear some protein tips from a longtime veggie bodybuilder.
