Nutrition, nutrition, nutrition. If you get this wrong, a lot of your effort will be wasted.

Nothing makes you feel big like calling short muscular men "small."

Stand real close to them when you do. It forces them to look up at you.

Starting strength, 1g protein/lb of bodyweight, sleep, progress. There's no magic routine for tall lanky guys. Don't worry about getting big, worry about getting strong.

I'm tall and lanky too.

All the good pieces of advice have already been said.

Starting Strength
Eat enough protein and calories, eat clean
Drink water and sleep
No personal trainers needed.

It's actually easy. I've made noob gains from 155 to 180lbs in less than 6 months and I am 6'1" with probably a 10-11% bf

Eat Dude.

And im not talking a clean diet, you eat every single peice of food that catches your eye.

Whether its a steak, ice cream, fries, or the neighbourhood cat... You eat it.

Only way to put on muscle, especially if your genetically skinny. Eat now and worry about trimming the excess later.

And enjoy it, bulking is the good stuff... Cutting is the challenge.

Ignore this fool. There's clean bulking (you still gain fat), bulking (you gain more fat), and eating like an idiot (you gain a lot of fat for no reason). You are advocating the last choice.

Double cheeseburger? Sure, its got some protein. Ice cream? Skip it. Half of the working out battle is getting into good habits, don't be another one of those "rarrghgh eat everything" clowns.

Ain't that the truth... I am but 6'2" but my 37" arms on top of it all don't help.

No, it's even worse there (longer range of motion, greater hip angle).
