Im a 18 year old guy, and im skinny as hell. People always tell me they cant believe how much I eat , and never gain any weight. I heard this is because of high metabolism and everything. The problem is I just want to grow some muscle (or fat, anything.) now you might say exercise treeguy, but I do: I play (pretty intensive) tennis like 2 times a week and bicycle about 30 kms a day (too school and back) I have nearly no muscle tone. A strange thing is how I am pretty strong. Like when im wrestling/fighting for fun with one of my friends, who is pretty muscular (wrestling in a none gay way) we are equal, its not like he can fold me up or anything. Any help is welcome.
In reply to: (wrestling in a none gay way) LOl sorry that statement makes me laugh. Why would you think we'd take you wrestling with your friend in a gay way?Anyways, When I was 18 I was very thin as well, and I ate everything in sight. I wore size 28 waist pants. Trust me as you get older your metabolism slows down. I'm 25 years old now and I wear size 32 waist pants, and I cannot just eat all day either like I was able to when I was 18. Personally I wouldn't worry to much about gaining weight, age will do that fro you in due time. BUT if you serious want to gain the weight, try drinking weight gainer drinks while eatting your dinner. I was directed to do this when I was 18 to put on some weight but never did it so not sure if it works but makes sense to me that it would.
Swimming is a great exercise if you want to target a large variety of muscles in your body. I find that it works particularily well with weight training for building muscle.
