I will be the first to admit that I am not the strongest 18 year old out there. Actually, I am defined as quite skinny. Thus a problem has arisen as I have been voted into this years Mr Viking Pagent at my high school. This is the male eqivelent of a beauty pagent type thing. Yes, I know that it all sounds quite retarded and for the past 3 years I have made fun of it, but alas, I must give the people what they want. Thus comes my problem.

What is the quickest way to bulk up?

Muscle is most needed in the abs, chest, and upper arms. (Lower arms disgustingly disproportional from drum line, so they don't need a lot of work.) Any advice would be much appreciated.

Cheers,
DFWLandingPath

Forget about your abs, arms, etc

The oldest trick in the book, if you wanna look big in a hurry; is to grow the delts, pecs, and glutes ASPA.... your three most notable (externally). There's always time to fill in the rest later.

Full-body weight workouts 3x per week; avoid the temptation to go more often, due to the risk of overtraining. Use heavy weights, generally speaking those which allow you to do 6 to 8 reps per set, and concentrate on compound exercises such as squats, deadlifts, bench presses, rows, dips and chins. Also be sure to eat a lot, getting at least one gram of protein per day per pound of body weight.

PROSA gives great advice that many don't head. By "resting" every other day, you give your muscle time to add sarcomeres ("power units) to its cells. Remember, when you grow muscle, you grow the cells that you have, your muscle doesn't multiply like other cells in the body. In order for your muscle cell to heal itself from a workout and "protect" itself for worse injury next time, it needs a day to add sarcomeres and additional cellular structure. That means you need to nourish your body with protein and carbohydrates. Best of luck to you.

Easy!!! Stuff your face with terrible, sh!tty food for a few weeks, and you'll be huge!

Seriously, the thing is, you have to eat more, and put some meat on those bones, and then work those out.

Don't go for steroids, and don't just max yourself out... There's a blend between eating fully/healthy and exercising... find that bance... I guarantee that if you start eating more, and then turning the "fat" into muscle, you'll build yourself up fater than just working out.

If you constantly make fun of these things (as I do), then do this:

Keep to your normal routine, don't try to gain any muscle, and just show those uptight preps exactly who you are: Not trying to look good for others, just being yourself.

AA summed it up right there. The three main core lifts, cleans, squats, and bench. Though cleans are meant for explosion, I don't think they're much for bulking up right? I'd recommend military press over cleans, as you'll bulk up in the delts.

Definitely pick a weight heavy enough to 3 sets of 8 reps per exercise. Pick exs. that work on the pecs, deltoids, gluteus, quads and hamstrings (squats), military presses work also. Rest those muscles every other day. When is the competition?

Increase your protein intake, avoid doing the cartio aspect or keep it to a minimum. Train hard and lift big. Don't eat the fast foods because it will make you loggy. Eat the healthy foods and get a program going at your gym. There are plenty of get big workout books you can source too from the library or book store. That's all I can say now, I just got home from work and I have a early Squash game tomorrow at the GYM.

People, people!!! The key of getting big, fast, is in the food! There's a reason strong people gain weight, and then turn it into muscle... it's Far easier!!!

I suggest eat some nice steak, but none of these crappy fast foods, think more, think healthy. Then once you gain a few pounds, go to the gym, and work it into muscle...

I'm in the process of doing that, and I can tell you that I have Pectorals and abs, I just need to lose weight (yes, I can make my breasteses move up and down by the muscle (not by jogging, moron))

Get some good, healthy, filling food, and go from there.

Just don't hurry... I hate all these guys taking way too much weight and doing 6 reps at about half a second each. That won't do much good...

Getting the muscles isn't THAT hard anyway. Well, I don't say it's easy, working out is hard enough (have been on it for two years myself...with some success if I may say that.). But if you work out reasonably and eat the right stuff you get the muscles. I usually eat protein bars after working out, mainly cause I love the taste of them... What's more difficult is having only the muscles and nothing to cover up the nice grooves.

Don't get too many muscles either, it's not good for your agility...
I'm a little more'n 5'11 and 160 pound and there's no fat  Smile I don't want much more weight, cause I want to be agile.

I need some advice along the same lines, i need to bulk down, and tone up.
Whats the best way of going about it? i normally do about 10-20 mins cardio, and then hit the weights, mainly the mechanical stuff, and not dead weights.
I am just over 13 stones, and 5ft11, but i would like to go down to about 10-12 stones, and be muscular, not wrestlers/body builder build. Ive been working my biceps and theyre coming along ok, but i need to work my chest and stomach area and firm up.


shall i just follow the points mentioned above?

Also, i dont have a particular routine at the gym, so can someone just point me in the right direction and give me some guidelines on the kinda weights i should do.

'squats, cleans, military press, dead lift and bench'- could someone please explain exactly what these are

thanks
amo- all confused

10-20 minutes cardio is fine, but you're only gonna loose pounds if you do more than 30 minutes... I normally do 50 minutes once a week so that the aforementioned grooves don't disappear...

I don't know what exactly those exercises are either, I don't know the english names for them.

And I don't have a real routine either, I just do what I feel like doing, and I don't think it's hurt me. As long as you don't just work one muscle all the time.

Erm...what exactly are stones?

If you want to put on weight, avoid cardio, it will increase your metabolism by increasing your body tempeture, thus making you burn more calories. You body needs calories, high calories if you are trying to increase size. You need every calorie possible. End of story.

Did you read Ammo's post?

but Cardio is endurance, isn't it? Maybe I got that wrong... I speak about running a bike or running.
I do that, not on the same day as the weights, cause I don't want to have 200 pounds or something...

Fighting- My last post was to DFWLanding Path, not Ammo's.

Ammo- You can work your Bi's as much as you want, you will see limited results unless you balance out and do Triceps and Shoulders, then in that cause to balance shoulders you must do Chest, and back, and you don't want chicken legs so you must to legs.

You have to work all parts of the body if uninjured.

Sorry, thought it was a reaction to me saying cardio was good...

Best thing is to do exercises that don't only train one muscle, like dips or chin/up (I think you call them) which train whole regions...

Do everything, only one thing is boring anyway
