Ellingham - The skinny guy is on a one way road to mass
Okay I’m going to keep this short and sweet, my name is Jack Ellingham, I’m from North London (England) I’m an 18 year old university student studying creative writing & journalism (I hope to be a sports journalist when I’m older) I have never lifted weights before, never entered a gym and have no experience. I have been bugging you guys with all my questions for numerous months now and I am truly greatful for all the helpful responses so I want to say thanks to the following people; Gregsimo, keeptruckin, rootb33r, klosey, venom, jinx5000, davelin, commander, godsgladiator and spider-man. Sorry if I have missed anyone from that list!
Reasons why I started lifting:
1. I want to add more weight to my frame to help me improve at football
2. I want to improve my strength
3. I want to improve my overall fitness through eating and lifting
4. I want a body that matches my age and personality
Height – 5’10”
Weight – 133.8lbs
Waist – 30.5”
Chest – 32.5”

Whey protein, Whey protein isolate, Malto/dex,Caffeine tabs, Multivitamins, Vitamin A, Cod-liver oil, Scivation xtend and Ground flaxseed.
Well this is the begining of a long journey so i hope people will follow along and add their input anytime they feel like it, wish me luck.
What's your plan of attack to achieve your goals?
Rock on, brother... you'll do great. You ask good questions and you heed peoples' advice. You've got it easy- all you've got to do is eat to get big! Good luck man. I'll be checking in to see how you're doing!
Here are some pictures as pictures always make threads more entertaining
(now bear in mind i have never lifted before so wanted to start with as low weights as possible until i feel comfertable with the lifts)
and 5 pull ups
(all weights are in pounds)
That's a crapload of supplements!
Even though you're just starting out, you should split up your training somehow. You should also be going for more than 1-3 reps per set...
Good to see you finally got the journal going, and nice start on SS, you'll find those numbers shooting up in no time. Im jealous that you can workout at home and that you have both an xbox 360 and PS3, thats just not fair!
What uni are you at?
Starting Strength is a great choice Ellingham, I wish you the best.
I would be scared to lift in your gym, too clean, and I would be nervous that I'd scuff the floor or something, lol. :)
ah ha my gym:D i just moved house and layed that floor the day before i put together the power rack, there is now matting underneath the equiptment so no need to worry bout scuffs!
