big drop,

the bit in the article about compounds is great- try that 2 times a week maybe to start with, use progressive overload, eat a buttload of protein!

And read as much as possible, sites like t-nation, muscletalk, etc will educate you, knowledge is the best resource at the early stages i think. Or try Arnolds encyclopedia, think its about £25 or so online, that has loads in! 2 hours plus in the gym might not be the way though...!

Chilled, pretty impressive lifts, at my best i was about 15st with abs poking through a bit (, not too far off your bench and deadlift but my squat plain sucks!

Lately been doing upper/lower alternates, real intense to try and burn a bit of fat so i dont have to do so much cardio, and i havent got a training partner so cant go mega heavy, which sucks a bit!!

one thing ...best advice i got is dont try and do 2 things at once ...

loose fat OR bulk ...dont try and loose fat and bulk at the same time

a very common mistake according to alot of books i read

good point, you can if you are fairly overweight but most people to add weight, calorie surplus, to lose, calore deficeit, which you obviously cant do at the same time.

Also before anyone says it fat does not turn into muscle!

This is what happened with me. I was gradually losing weight without any real muscle gain. Before I started going to the gym, I topped out at 13st.10, then over the course of a year went down to 11st.13. It felt really odd dropping to that level, and was a bit disappointed to be honest about not showing any substantial muscle gain.
Now I'm back up to 13st.6 with not much in the way of fat, and still growing. It's a long winded process, and why so many people give up too soon I guess. I mean, if it was easy to tone up and get huge arms, we'd all have them. My top 2 sets of abs are through now, and I'm aiming for the bottom set in a year or so.

Thats all very good advice.

I'm interested though - what's your take on vitamin suppliments? Good? Bad?

multivitamins and minerals are great as not many people will get enough in their diet.

pointless.

1 a day cod liver oil capsuls are cool though... vitamins go in and straight out - lots of people will disagree and there will be controversy over this but its pretty true i rekon.

cod liver oil - yes
vitamins - nah - if you arnt a skeptic get a good multivitamin
actimul / yakult - awesome get them in once a day 1st thing after a week you'll feel bo!

I take fish oils, glucosamine and multi-vitamins (don't eat red meat so kind of feel like I have to) every day and can't say I notice a difference if I don't take them for a week, but hey.

i take glucosamine sulphate

because its supposed to help with joint tissue and fluid (my ankles and knees have stopped clicking more recently since ive started taking it ) but more because its well used in the army when they have a heavy schedule to keep there immune systems above board .... help them stop coming down with a cold. i take 1/3rd the RDA

as for vitamins im in the waste of time camp im pretty sure i get most of the vits and minerals from the food i eat ... i eat lots of fruit and veg , drink more milk than humanly possible and eat lots and lots of fresh meat

Any tips to gain weight healthily?

I need a bit more muscle on me for Ice hockey.

Also needs to be controllable.
I had 12 yoghurts last night, I was mullered!!!

intake more calories

lift weights!  muscle weights 3times the amount fat does

increase your protein intake to 1.5gram/kg body weight

Cheer Paul, very useful indeed. I am out with injury but trying to lose a bit of weight due to the fact I am a bit porky at the moment! I am also trying to do lots of leg weights as I can still excercise the lower body. A very good and well informed artical.

Personally I no longer take vitamins but do take IQ fish oils.
