Yep, I must admit it, Im kinda skinny and I don't like seeing those ribs. I grew a bit to fast in the last years. My bone structure followed but muscle was left behind, so I started today workin out. Hope I can gain some brawn

Not sure why Im sharing this, I guess its kinda manly, right?

k. stuff you should know:

6. if you do the same thing over and over again, you wont gain any muscle.
7. don't lift everyday, maybe every other. as it would prevent you from gaining muscle mass.
8. exercises in which you lengthen muscles while contracting them are the most effective and should be what you spend the most time on like Bonn-o-Tron.
9. eat alot more than you normally would, as you will be burning more calories.
10. drink alot of milk, it helps with growth alot.
11. don't drink too much water, or you will be more likely to cramp up.
12.start slow, and work your way up to heayer weights.
13.good luck :wink:

No, the water Prevents cramps, milk makes them more likely if you drink a ton.

Let me add to some of piltogg's suggestions

6. Like he said, don't lift everyday; I'd recommend only 3 lifting sessions per week...other days can be cardio / light cardio with stretching

7. Each of the days you lift weights in a given week should target a different muscle group. E.g. Monday - chest+arms / Wed - shoulders+back / Fri - legs+somethin...this lets muscles rest, repair, and grow

8. Protein, protein, protein, in the 1 hour after you work out, and then the next morning (whey powder is a good investment)

9. workout for at least 45 min keeping your heart-rate near 140 (when possible) - 8-10 should be your target rep counts per weight exercise...more if you are doing pushups, pullups, or other non-weight exercise.

10. after a while, switch up what day you workout what muscles to avoid boredom and confuse your muscles 8)

11. Good luck
