The Hardcore link is pretty much bang on what you need. Since you're not a fighter and also want to gain weight you're better off focusing on strength and lowering (but not ditching) the conditioning.

A little observation from my own training. When I include bodyweight movements, my weight tends to stay roughly the same. If I ditch them it Find it easier to gain weight but it's not always the right kind of weight :mozilla_smile: .

You certain 'can' be big, fast and strong but genetrics plays a huge part. My matabolism is extremely fast so for me to get big I have to cut down the conditioning and eat far too much and I become big but slow...

Keep in mind that you won't apper big if you're lean (unless you're a genetic beast or walk around without a shirt on). Your maximal weight is somewhere around 80 kg (~176 lbs), provided you keep very low bf. That is about as big as you can get without drugs.

If you want to be bigger than that, you could (a) get fat or (b) start using drugs. There is no other way.

But as already mentioned, confidence is more important than appearance.

I can google for specifics if you want... Bottom line, (person's height in cm) - (100 cm) gives about maximal lean weight (in kg) for certain height, PROVIDED very low bf (ripped). Of course, people will vary in weight, but not that much, maybe few (1, 2) kg up or down.

Read the Lyle McDonald article linked there. It's a simplified equation that tallies very well with more complicated models.
