Well I'm not that old at 36 but feeling the slow down I suppose. I have always been a super hard gainer. In my early 20's I joined Gold's Gym in Austin at 6'1" 145lbs. I was able to get up to 158 lbs on a program devised by a super hot female trainer. At one point she said "your freaky lean stop doing cardio" and I replied that" I havn't done any". I ended up going to the doctor and he advised I should stay out of the gym a few weeks and I never returned. Fast forward and I have gone from 150 to 185 since 2014. I have creeped these forums since 14 and I just figured its time to up the ante. I look forward to any advise from hardgainers and will try to be as involved as I can as I prepare to cycle in October.
