    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Different bodies, different techniques?

    Ive been in the gym for nearly two years now, and started really powerlifting nearly a year into it. When i started out in the gym i was 145 lbs and now i am 160lbs. Yes, there is an increase but I was wondering why i havnt been gaining weight, and yes, I've been taking protein and eating quite alot of food.
    Does anyone know if different body types respond better for endurance reps or short, heavier reps for gaining size?

    Any tips or info would be much appreciated.

    You aren't eating enough food. It's as simple as that. You can't create size without a surplus of calories.

    Take a daily food log for 3 or so days, average those calories, then add 500 more. Keep doing this until you see a steady weight gain.

    Well, that statement is too vague. But yes, different persons/body types respond to different types of training, however caloric intake is more than likely your problem.

    Sev, how tall are you?
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    How old are you? That could have something to do with it.

    Well between the years of 16 and 18 I did rather a lot of vertical growing, if you are the same then you may be underestimating just how much you need to be eating to also grow horizontally

    You're obviously a "hardgainer" (based on original weight of 145 at a height of 6') so you should eat more, be careful about over training, and do cardio only when absolutely necessary. This is all if your goal is to look like a power lifter.
