    You want to put on muscle? Eat lots of food, lift heavy ass weights and get plenty of sleep.

    If you want more specific advice, read the FAQs, get on the 5x5 and then go do some squats.

    5x5 is a strength protocol, there are better ways of putting on lean mass

    abdominal definition is a matter of bodyfat, nothing else.

    and you can be every bit as muscular as you need to be at 5'8", 150lbs.

    sounds like you've got a pretty small frame. if you can get your bodyfat low enough for that 6pack while still maintaining ~150lbs, i think you (and el macho) will be surprised at how much muscle will be attached to your bones.

    5'8" 150lbs isn't necessarily underweight by any means. it all depends on what those lbs consist of.

    now if you really do simply want to be bigger, then cool. i'm just saying bigger isn't a prerequisite for stronger.

    (personally, i'm 5'7", ~150lbs, and the most muscular i've ever been. my goal is to lose about another 10lbs of fat... and i don't *want* any more muscle.)

    One thing that helped me was to eat nothing but fruit, vegetables, chicken,and tuna along with whey protein powder smoothies before and after I work out everyday, also other than the protein smoothie drink, 10 glasses or more of water and nothing else a day. I've done that for 2 years now and I've put on lean mass and i have 4-5% body fat.

    If that doesnt get you a fleshed out sixer or 8-er I dont know what will.

    I am 5'9" 165-170 lbs just slightly larger but I have 7% body fat. Standing alone I look fairly big. standing next to some of the other guys at the gym i look puny, but Iam also faster than some of them because of my size. Cardio helps me to keep from gaining those extra pounds of fat. Oh and protien protien protien. by cardio I mean working the large muscle groups into exhaustion till your dizzy and ready to puke. Because hard work aint easy. But the results are worth it especially when you reach a certain age things begin to slow. When people say you look good for your age it is a compliment.

    It also just depends on the person's genetics how much you will weigh. I for example am also 5'8", but I only weigh 115-120 lbs, about 3-5% bodyfat. I am apparently quite underweight, but I am very healthy, and physically active. I also eat a lot, but I just have a very fast metabolism, so I don't really gain any weight. I have a few friends who are about my height and within 10-20 lbs of me.

    The best thing you can do to keep off fat, like everyone else said is cardio. If you want a 6 pack, try working bicycle sit-ups (http://www.baseballinstruction.org/situps.html) and try holding yourself in plank position (http://www.abs-exercise-advice.com/plank.html) after I started doing these last year, I got my 6-pack within a few months (probably party because I'm so skinny). The bicycle sit ups work the horizontal muscles in your abs, which is what people see when they look at a 6 pack, while plank position works on your lower abs quite a bit.
