You are so correct....those who are naturally ectomorphic like yourself (me too) can only get so big without being fat. When I went to boot camp (Marines) in 1981, I weighed 142 pounds. Over the course of 15 years and a lot of weight lifting, I worked my way to to 175 pound (5% bodyfat). Since that time, I have been stronger than that and a bit heavier than that on many occasions....but I have never been able to get larger than 175 at 5% bodyfat. I was born to be skinny and my skeleton and genetics will not allow me to gain more muscle beyond that. Its a reality one has to deal with.
