QFT... IMO if you want a good workout, the bare minimum you need are an adjustable bench, dumbbells, barbells, and some free weights. Depending on where you live, you might be able to score good deals on craigslist. I got my bench, barbells, and 250lbs of weights on craigslist, all for $100!

However, I think the most expensive part of working out is the food! I'm 5'6" and 155lbs and I've been trying to put on a few extra pounds with a 3000 calorie diet, but man! it's so expensive to buy so much food! Protein shakes make it a bit cheaper than buying meat, but still...

Ditch the fast food, replace it with chicken and tuna. Eggs are of course a great source also, but don't overdo it. Go on www.bodybuilding.com forums, then nutrition. People have great recipe's put up for quick meals.

Aerobics and more aerobics. Back when I was swimming non-stop, I had a visible 6 pack and didn't do any ab workouts. Go jogging for very long distances.

Ab workouts just build abs under the layer of fat. They will get you no where.

For the fat thing, very true, but for the buff thing, just be more motivated. It took the movie 300 to get me started, lol.

I went from a max of 30lbs an arm to 45lbs in about half year of doing 25lbs, 10 tens per arm, every two days (ish, I'm still lazy). Since it's all I did my arms are oversized, but that's not too bad lol. At the beginning it's hard because you don't get results, but once you do it's a lot easier to keep going.

While you're training, in your head keep screaming ''ARGH IM A SPARTAAAN!! I LOVE PAIN!!! SPARTA, TONIGHT WE BUFF!!!''

On a side note, this is the kind of thread child predators hunt in, so don't read PMs from FreeCandy023

That's probably because you are etomorphic. Its a one type of body type that no matter how much they eat they find it a struggle to gain weight. You know if you really want to gain weight, then you should try a deep fried stuff . That will definitely make you gain weight . Mcdonalds KFC Red Lobster oh yeah that will make you gain weight like a matter of days .


I am endomorphic(the worst of the body type) find it a struggle to lose weight(but not impossible) but very easy to gain muscle mass find it also hard to maintain it. I run 60Km a week I lost 40KG With running over 3000 Km(Not bsing) took me ages to burn it off but yeah now I have lost all it now have started weight lifting.


As for this topic, you are the first ever male guy who I know WANTS to gain weight . Congratulation and keep it up

Fixed.

I know quite a decent amount of people that have a hard time trying to gain weight. My roommate is eating all he can to gain weight although he can't eat any meat because of his religion. He is currently using a mass gainer but he doesn't take it consistently enough and doesn't really know what to eat (eats like instant noodles at 3 in the morning and then sleeps at 4am...bad habit). To all the ectomorphs, eat all you can (protein and carbs mostly) but still get enough sleep and lift often. Don't eat those trans fat fried stuff...although they may speed up the process of gaining weight, they are horrible for your health (clogged arteries in the future, etc). Just eat a lot of bread and meat a few times throughout the day, makes your own protein shakes or smoothies and take a mass gainer.

Steps required:
1) Go to favorite local liquor store
2) Pick out beverage of choice
3) Pay for selected beverage of choice
4) Goal achieved!

Seriously though, a good six pack is a combination of definition of the ab muscles and a low body fat level. Cardio will decrease the fat but you'll still have to use resistance training to build up the muscle. If you have a decline bench, set it on the most negative angle and do crunches while laying down in the negative angle. If you can do 10-15 reps easily, grab a 10 or 20lb weight plate and keep it at your upper chest while you do the crunches again. Once that gets easy, up the weights some more. Try to aim for about 5 sets with 1-2 minutes of rest in between. The short rest time will really make you burn but it stresses the muscle more, which should hopefully equal more muscle tears and muscle building. I try to stretch the abs during the rest period to hopefully lessen a bit of the muscular soreness later.
