6 weeks isn't that long.Keep going and don't get discouraged!
I've been working out since January and I'm just starting to see real results, it takes time and it's different for everyone but keep at it.
I have more chest/abdominal hair than Michael J Fox as the teen wolf.. Even if I was built like early 90's Jean Claude van Damme I wouldn't go shirtless. I feel your pain brother.That being said 6 weeks isn't long enough. Keep going.
I found on myself, and in some of my friends, that one doesn't really notice how much one is improving.It's a long and slow process such that I didn't really see my stomach getting flatter, or my arms getting bigger. But friends of mine who would only see me every 2 weeks or so, after a few months, would start to say, "Oh, your arms are bigger!" and then grab them :P
^ and then sexytime.
OP here:Thanks for all of the encouragement! I'll be sure to keep working at it. :)
OP, you won't notice the small gradual changes week from week. What you could do is take pics of yourself every few weeks. Ideally you should be able to see some differences. Other things you can do is keep track of your weight, measure size of various body parts (not the dick, but like arms and shit), and also measure your body fat percentage.
6 weeks is nothing OP.. But you'll be looking thick, solid, tight in 6 months. Keep at it.
You'll get there. Keep at it, I'm sure progress is happening even though you might not notice it. Remember, good diet is just as (or even more) important as exercise.
You should notice improvements in strength and endurance before any obvious physical changes.
Make sure to do a good routine, fastest way to get big is doing bench 3x per week at 5 reps per set. And do squats to get some legs.
Keep going and when you are fit, keep your damn shirt on.
@3 - You are not the only one. I am the same as you:( I feel your pain bro.
What Fayez said. I like to think I have a decent body, but I don't strut it about. The closest I've come is wearing a wifebeater in the gym, but I felt uneasy so I stopped and just stick to t shirts now. Modesty is the best bro.
^ Yeah, I saw a guy wearing a wife beater in one of my classes and it was a big turnoff. And tight (spandex-y) shirts make you look gay (is that offensive?). Not wearing a shirt makes you look like a show off unless you're at the beach- but I imagine there'll still be other girls who find it hot.
Nobody cares what you look like without a shirt on, and if they do, they hardly have a reason to. Stop being so defeatist. If you want to do something, it's legal, it's moral, and it doesn't restrict your top few primary plans, then do it.If what you want to do is "have people like me" then your goals are misdirected. It's not worth the effort, or if it is, start taking acting lessons and working out harder, but I don't know, make sure you think that's what you want to do first. In general though, for small things, influencing people is a waste, don't be half-assed about trying to get people to like you and then feel depressed if they don't.Decide on some higher goal.
you have some self esteem issues
LOL @ random skinnyfat / auschwitz-mode guys on omguw talking like they know something
Lmfao 2 weeks? Try 1-2 years, 6 months at the least for noticeable gain in mass.
This is like one of those Anthony Robbins or Vinny Dicarlo threads... "OK guys, stay motivated. You can do it!" Live for yourself. Or don't live at all.
You only want to walk around shirtless when you don't have much to show off, believe me. If you keep working out and get to a stage where you're satisfied with your image...you won't want to show off that much.
DAMN, RL MUST BE ONE SWOLE MFKA
^ Damn, had to look that word up ^^Also, not bodybuilder level jacked but people notice...
I'm in great shape (toned but not over muscular) and yet nobody knows. I never flaunt my body.. except when I'm looking at myself in the mirror. I just can't help but think I'm one sexy motherfucker. Too bad I lack confidence with women.Plus I have a small penis.
^^No worries, my vagina is small and bleeds when I have sex with a guy packing a big dick. Small penises ftw.
I'm 190 lbs 5' 9" and I can't even go shirtless since I feel too small. I'm trying to get a natural physique like Scooby but its hard.
RL I do know who you are and I can tell you for a fact that people do not notice
Oh snap ^
@27: Unfortunate. I guess some people have better eyesight than you.
