I'm 5'10, around 170, fit with a trim waist, big chest and wide shoulders relative to my waist, but altogether lacking the thickness of a true "athletic" build. That being said, I've recently been promoted and need to wear a suit everyday. I've managed to amass a terribly...

Seriously, there are lots of guys who claim they can't gain weight who really just aren't eating nearly enough. Maybe even most guys who claim to be hardgainers fall into that category. But there are people whose bodies just really, really don't like putting on muscle. When...
