  • Draw a stick figure on your hand and hold it up whenever you talk to people, that way, you look more muscular than the stick :3

  • Genetics have a lot to do with. I can eat total garbage food and do the occasional half assed work out and stay strong, hard gainers aren't so lucky.
    Eat like you're going to the chair, no cardio, lift less with more weight. That's probably the best way to get strong, functional muscle.

  • I think it takes some time and persistence. I'm skinny, and I've put on 5 kg in the past 6 months, without even eating that much...

  • It takes time to get results, you can't workout for a couple weeks and expect to be huge. The changes with be gradual.

  • It takes months to even start to see results and years before you get actual serious results. A few weeks of light lifting ain't gonna give you anything.

  • Oreos cookies have 140 calories for every 2 you eat. I believe in you. Just eat more cookies. Like 20 of them a day

  • It is about rest at your age because your metabolism is so high. You are working out too much and eating too little.

    • I learnt that only recently. Also, for some people their abs don't dev properly till their 30s, so getting a six pack will be harder since the muscle isn't developed.

  • Nutrition is key man. Study nutrition and the human body.

  • Not everyone responds to workouts the same. This is why steroids were invented.

  • Stick to the basic compound lifts like deadlift, squat, bench press, bent-over row, over head press, etc... lift heavy and get plenty of rest.

    Eat plenty of calories from foods like oatmeal, pasta, brown rice, beans, turkey, eggs, chicken breast, beef, cottage cheese, nuts, olive oil, peanut butter, etc.
