I have weightlifted for many years; been mainly involved in powerlifting. Always had an interest in bodybuilding and regularly follow it in the media.
Now I want to focus my attention towards bodybuilding more strongly as I have considered that looking strong could be better than being strong, (functional strength is also very important ofcourse) especially in this image conscious world.
I have always wanted to be a big guy anyway.
I will still aim to compete in powerlifting as I will always incorporate the squat, the bench press and the deadlift in my training routine.

Currently weigh between 58-60kg at 5'4" with good conditioning. I will record my bodyweight on every Monday morning starting from the 17th Jan 2011.
My main goal is to increase bodyweight with some disregard for my bodyfat. My BMI is in the 'normal' range although I see myself as a skinny guy. I will become a Muscle God. :wink:

[...]"especially in this image conscious world."[...]

The world is like that, for sure, but the ideal prototype for males in the real world isn't a huge muscle "God" as you call it. Normal people see David Beckam (sorry spelling) and Cristiano Ronaldo as "buffed" guys. Judging by your avatar you're closer to that ideal than Phil Heath is. Being big and muscular is no advantage in a normal job environment, be adviced.

But that's just normal people so very good luck with your goals, stay active!

Hey Storm, I think your def right. I don't think Beckham or Ronaldo are very 'buffed' at all in my view point. My ideal is far from it. I am dissapointed that you think I am closer to them than Phil Heath...haha. Phil Heath is a super freak though and I have far to go to reach that comparison.

Hey Max, call me Steven :)
I have not actually thought about how much bodyweight I want to gain. As much as possible? :)
At that time I was too lazy to go to the gym and I have an olympic weight set in my shed so I thought I would bring it out. Now the set is rusting away and never gets used.

Wednesday - 19th Jan 2011.

Supplements I take:
 
- Protein 'all in one' ; with creatine, arginine, glutamine, taurine and others.
- Weight gainer.
- Vitamins and minerals (one tab a day).
- Potassium (one 99mg tab a day).
- Energy booster.
 
I have been thinking of adding fish oil tabs to my supplements, although it may be better to just eat more fish and other healthy oils/fats.

I have listed what foods I have consumed today and at the approximate time to give you an idea of the proportion of food I take in an average day. I do not count calories. I aim to eat regularly to try to ensure that I remain in an 'anabolic' state.
Feel free to comment on my diet and/or provide tips because I want to learn & improve.
 
07:00 - Protein shake.

07:25 - Oats, milk, 1 banana, cottage cheese.

10:30 - 1 slice of brown bread with peanut butter, 1 banana, 1 orange.

12:10 - Weight gainer shake.

14:40 - French toast with brown sauce (2 eggs, 2 slices of brown bread + oil)

16:00 - Weight gainer shake.

18:40 - Chicken, rice, veg & salad.

19:20 - Half a can of tuna and fruit juice blended.

20:40 - Protein shake and energy booster.

21:20 - 22:45 TRAINING.

22:55 - Protein shake and energy booster.

23:30 - Half a can of tuna and fruit juice blended, 1 slice of brown bread with peanut butter, 1 tangerine.

Gym closed earlier than I had anticipated so left out a second shrug exercise. Didn't want to rush it. Will consider adding a shrug exercise at the end of tommorow's training in order to compensate.
Getting stronger all round - haven't mentioned it but getting PB's in a few exercise's. Just want to record what I do. My mentality towards weightlifting is to get an extra rep or add some extra weight every session (whilst keeping satisfactory form) to secure progression and push bounderies. Just have to eat more now to keep up with it.
