  1. The thread seem to have deteriorated into a Find a RP partner thread. To answer your question: The darkest story I have written is The Security Squad , and it does contain some scenes outside my usual limits. It might be up your alley.
  2. When I think about it, several of my own stories mention technical equipment with electrodes and/or crackling power emissions hitting the protagonist(s), but, as far as I am able to recollect, I never call the forces or frequencies involved electricity, but by various suggestive pseudo-scientific names, like hypertrophic radiation, anabolic radiation, zythronic beams or vril power. Let me know, if any of these sounds interesting. If I re-use the general idea another time, I'll probably play with odic power, orgone or animal magnetism. There are a lot of discarded scientific theories from the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries, that would fill an entertaining literary purpose. In my story Forced to be bro, a coach put electrodes all over a young athlete's body, but I never explain if the pseudo-scientific force involved is electricity or something else.
  3. At the old forum, VladBath wrote a story called Scott, which probably fit your description. You'll find it here: https://archive2007.muscle-growth.org/stories/426.html
  4. Is that an answer to the original poster or to me? I've been working out since the 1990s.
  5. It happens rather often. Several of my story ideas are based on dreams I've had. Most of the time, I am one of the guys who grow bigger.
  6. One kg per month isn't bad at all, though you perceive yourself as a hardgainer. Do you eat every three hours? An eating schedule is an important ingredient (no pun intended) in exercise, even to those of us who exercise for recreational purposes. A meal in this sense isn't a three-course dinner. In the afternoon or late morning it could be something as simple as a fruit and a boiled egg (or several, depending on your calculated intake), for instance. You will save time, and avoid missing a meal, by cooking rather large amounts of several dishes and freeze meal-sized portions in airtight plastic containers. The options of food, that surrounds us in this modern society, aren't particularly healthy for us. Make a habit of reading the list of ingredients on food packages. The two most serious threats to your exercise and your health in modern processed food are palm oil (because the human body is very bad at using it) and maize syrup (Americans use the expression corn syrup, but that cause a European like me to think of barley). Try to avoid palm oil and maize syrup even in your cheat days. Otherwise, do not become obsessed with any particular ingredients: Few ingredients need to be left out entirely, but you might probably need to decrease the amount of some (like bread), and you might need to restrict the intake of some to cheat days, and limit the number of cheat days to once a week. In some parts of the world they put sugar in bread: Avoid that, look for sugarfree wholegrain bread, and don't eat too much of it. In six days out of seven, you need to eat in a healthier way, than the average person in the west. Most people don't eat the amount of vegetables they need. Do you eat spinach, kale and broccoli frequently? A lot of people forget legumes, especially lentils (They become delicious with the right amount of spices!). Do you eat fish every week? I am bad at the mathematics of eating, and would need some advice myself. I will therefore not give any advice about that. Consult someone knowledgeable. My back and my legs began to grow swifter when I allowed back-muscles, hamstrings and quads a few more days to recover between the workouts. Smaller muscles, like calves, pecs, shoulders, abs and arms recover faster, than the big muscles do. If you re-arrange your training schedule according to that, it might be useful. It was, to me. I am personally very suspicious of the supplements business: The companies try to persuade us to spend money on products of dubious quality. I noticed, though, increased results from my workouts, when I began to eat or drink (usually drink, nowadays) some BCAA within 15-30 minutes after the end of each workout, usually in the locker room. Read and compare the lists of contents on several BCAA containers before you decide which one you want to use.
  7. As I wrote in another answer, the level of physical condition models and bodybuilders reach at the time for a photo shoot isn't the way they look most of the time: Human kidneys do not fare well under the eating and (not) drinking habits models and bodybuilders follow at competition week or the weeks for photographs. They experiment with food without table-salt and sugar for weeks, which cause a bad temper, and then experiment with salt and sugar the last few hours: I'm not familiar with the details, but it takes character to follow those eating-rules. Professional photographers also use filtres and other professional tricks to make their photographs of models and bodybuilders look extra good, compared to the unflattering light in a bathroom or entrance where ordinary mortals look themselves in the mirror. Professional photographs in magazines or online will always depict an ideal beyond how people -- even the same bodybuilders and models -- look normally. That said: If you make yourself familiar with how to perform exercises in correct and safe ways (injuries will slow you down: train safe, and avoid weeks away from the gym), buy a meal-plan from a reputable trainer and follow it, spend at least three times a week lifting weights (four or five if you find that you have the time and stamina for it), make some cardio in one of your weight-free days and get enough sleep (to grow), you will see changes occur in your body. Remember, it is mainly when you sleep you grow: Your body will repair the intentional breakdown of muscle tissue you have caused at the gym, and the repairing process will make you more fit to face a similar workout next time. That is why you ought to gradually increase the weights you use. You will need at least one day a week entirely free from exercise, but some people need two or three days a week to recover enough. I began to work out regularly in order to recover from bouts of a medical condition. I was extremely scrawny when I began, and I mean extremely: a walking skeleton. Today I would call myself average, which is a considerable improvement, and a brutally earnest friend of mine even keep telling me, that my back and shoulders are more muscular than those of an average guy. Everyone will improve -- each according to his personal circumstances. Utterly few will look like the Pros, but let us be realistic here. The lifestyle of a Pro isn't healthy (The same is true about athletes of any sport). Some of them damage their kidneys and/or heart. If you don't plan to compete, and, by the sound of what you write, you don't, train in a way that improve and keep your health long-term. You will enjoy it.
  8. When I compare my answer and @CardiMuscleman's answer, I notice, that we have interpreted @skinnynoob in two slightly different manners. The expression could either be interpreted "having the non-negotiable goal to compete" (which is the interpretation Cardi answered), or "attaining visible muscles, not primarily with competitions in mind" (which is the interpretation I went for). Especially beginners are prone to call anyone who build their body a bodybuilder in a wider sense, while those who appreciate the sport of bodybuilding, restrict the word to a more well-defined designation for competitors. I am able to understand how both groups think about the matter, and the reasons for doing so. Is someone who play golf in Sunday afternoons for recreational purposes a golf player? The thread will probably improve and avoid any ambiguitites, if @skinnynoob explain what he mean with "looking like". My personal opinion about the value of weight-training for reasons of physiotherapy, wellbeing, health and improving mood and physical shape would probably be rather well-known on this forum by now. Most people at gyms do not exercise for the sake of any competitions.
  9. Everyone -- some of those with severe medical conditions excepted -- will grow, if he exercise, eat and sleep properly. Everyone will become stronger and more muscular, than they were before they began to exercise. The frame will still be the same, but what is bulging from that frame will be different, compared to how the person looked before he took up lifting. That doesn't mean that an ectomorph will turn into a mesomorph or an endomorph or vice versa. Remember: You are only competing against your own former self. Also remember: No-one looks like a commercial 365 days a year. There is a big difference between an off-season look (which non-competing gym-participants and off-season bodybuilders share most of the time) and the way bodybuilders look the week they compete and participate in photo shoots. Or, the short version: Exactly the same? No. But there will be gains. An off-season bodybuilder with narrow clavicles? Yes. It takes correct exercise, correct food and enough sleep. Lifting weights -- combined with sensible cardio-vascular exercise, preferably in other weekdays than weights -- will improve your wellbeing, which is much more important, than any potential future competitions. If you have an ectomorph constitution, you could try Men's Physique, but as I wrote above, your personal wellbeing is a much more important result of lifting weights, than any eventual ability to compete. In a similar way, those with an endomorph constitution will probably be much more successful in Strongman competitions and powerlifting, than those with a mesomorph constitution would be. There are advantages and drawbacks with each of the three conventional body-types.
  10. It very much depend on, if your questions pertain to realistic goals set in the gym, or if they pertain to impossible daydreams. I work out (or used to work out, before my present hiatus) in order to counteract some of my medical conditions, and I know, that following a sensible workout plan make me feel more relaxed and harmonious, and that it increases my wellbeing in general. Small and subtle signs cause me to realise, that I actually do have improved physically since the time when I began to work out: My triceps now rub my latissimus, my shoulders feel strange in a nice way when I shower, and I have ripped apart a few t-shirts and polo shirts that once fitted me without problem. There is no limit, so "becoming big" is always a goal pushed farther into the future: "Big" is always "bigger than now". I hope, that my health will soon improve enough, to allow me to return to my schedule. In real life, physical exercise has also been a part of exploring who I am and improving who I am. Among the other tools for that purpose have been discussions with like-minded friends, deep introspection, changing my appearance (my haircut, my choice of clothes), exploring bondage, exploring hypnosis ... In that sense, "there is more to it" than just becoming bigger. In my daydreams, muscle-growth is on an impossible scale or mixed with sci-fi themes or fantasy themes without foundation in reality: Turning into a friendly giant or a protective cyborg -- that sort of things. That sort of imagination is useful as a source of writing, though, and I am happy if my readers find my stories entertaining. My protagonists often leave an old stage of life behind and enter a new stage of life, and becoming bigger is just an aspect of the entire change that happens to them.
  11. Thank you. There are 86 pages of stories in the stories section alone, so there must be more similar stories, but for obvious reasons, it is easier for me to remember my own stories. My little buddy is the only one of my own stories that fit your description well. I have written about male friendship and gay couples on at least three other occasions, but the size-dynamic in those stories quickly change somewhere along the storyline. The fate of two characters is only appealing to those who appreciate mind-control and dark satire, and some readers would probably find that story too scary. Readers with a tin-ear for irony will not appreciate it either. In another story, the smallest guy in a circle of friends turn into the biggest guy (but his medium-sized and fairly muscular boyfriend remain the most aggressive of them), and that doesn't sound like what you are asking for. A third story -- a horror story which mix straight, gay and kinky themes -- do mention a relationship between a small guy and his reformed bully, but they are only assisting characters, dragged unknowingly into a maelstrom of supernatural events caused by the two (straight male) main characters. Personally, I find that couple pretty cute. I have written several chapters of samesex-themed stories that doesn't fit the twosome bill exactly, so they seem to fall outside your search criteria too: One of them will eventually feature a handful of men born in the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s who get zapped by a company, who rejuvenate the old ones and allow the youngest ones to achieve the mature muscles of a bodybuilder in his 40s, but that story is more along the theme: It gets better. The protagonists become friends, not boyfriends, and they exchange memories. I wanted to write something different. Another one describe a ménage à trois, but the two smaller guys don't remain small. On the contrary. The theme is self-improvement. If you, despite these warnings, are interested in these stories, I could link them if you want. Let me know.
  12. You write what I think. I doubt, that the methods to cure muscular diseases will be applied to healthy persons in the most immediate future, though, and, if the methods are found useful for athletes, I doubt that they will be available to average persons. I foresee a future, in which only high-profile athletes and the immensely rich will have access to muscle-enhancing gene therapy.
  13. One of the first stories I ever wrote feature a big, sporty guy and his tiny intellectual hardgainer boyfriend. It is called My little buddy. The language in the story might be in need of proof-reading, but the storyline as such is rather sweet and cuddly, and it lack the darkness I often mix into my stories. https://muscle-growth.org/topic/6597-my-little-buddy/
  14. I noticed, that it is your birthday. Happy birthday!
