    Hey all. I'm a 19yo underweight nerd, wanting to break away from the stereotype that all nerds are skinny weaklings. icon_confused.gif

    I want to train through Wii Fit, particularly my upper body, as I have skinny arms, and also my gut, so it's not so flabby but alittle firmer.

    Now I don't want to hear anything about "Get outside and stop playing that video game", I'm just not comfortable to get outside where everyone can see my body at this time.

    Is there anything I should do as I'm exercising? And inbetween such as diet?

    Do you own a weight set? I don't know a whole lot about Wii Fit, but I think it might be cool for cardio only... depending on the intensity. I would think buying a set of dumbbells, barbells and a weight bench might be better for your gaining goals. This would help you with working out without having to go to a gym. Increase your calories and protein. I'm sure you can find home workouts for beginner's on RJ or the internet to help you get started. But I don't think the Wii Fit is going to help you with developing your muscles. It's fun, but not for your particular goals.

    Wii Fit won't do anything to help you gain weight. It will most likely help your cardio and flexibility. But if you want to gain weight, you need to do some real resistance training.

    If you want to work out at home, then try the P90X thing. Just search the torrent sites.

    Well dude, if you want to gain real muscle you need to leave that Wii and get your ass to a gym with a good set of barbells, dumbbells, cables, machines, etc.! If you're serious about changing your body, man up, leave your body-conciousness behind, and lift hard... I was a fat ass that couldn't even lift the 45lb barbell when I first started lifting, I was so out of shape. But I stuck with it and I have made great progress, today I can lift a lot more than the 45lb bar ;)

    Yeah I don't know what you can do on it to gain weight. Its pretty much garnered to lose weight. My parents have a Wii Fit so I got on it a few months ago. The thing told me I was overweight because, according to my BMI, I am overweight because BMI is useless for people who lift weights. Anyways it told me I should set a goal to lose almost 20lbs. I told it I wanted to gain 10lbs and it was like "Really? Are you sure?"

    If you really want to gain weight, lift weights and eat a ton

    the only way you are going to gain weight from wii fit is by eating it.

    If you can´t go outside for fear that the sun will burn your skin then get and do P90x

    Also, eat.

    Echoing to what other people say,Wii fit doesn't help you to gain weight....Cardio yes, weight gaining no...

    If you're shy about going to the gym, don't be..I was thin too and I decided to do something about ...So I stuffed my fear and went ans ever since I couldn't have been any more happier making that decision....I even hired a trainer now to maximize my full mass gaining potential...

    Maybe you can find a gym partner like I did....Or you go and buy yourself some starting weights and start working out...And yes diet is a factor too..No more junk food.


    See a nutritionist about about forming a food plan...



    You just have to be motivated and focused to do all of this....

    Have faith mate!

    I don't own a weight set, I'm poor, even in debt alittle.
    If I do push-ups can that substitute the need for weights? See I'm pushing against my own body weight.

    I'll have a look at that, thanks icon_smile.gif

    That's true, they should have included a fat/muscle mass test.
    No lifting weights, not weights to speak of. (See above)

    I love the sun. It's just the people. It's a disorder >.>

    I wouldn't mind going to the gym, but membership costs money doesn't it? So a nutritionist is out of the question also, sorry =P

    pushups, air squats, lunges, and situps... just a few things you can practically do anywhere and don't need anything to do them with. I do these things on a daily basis both in and out of the gym. Wii fit on the other hand is only going to keep your weight down. The trick is to work out and then load up on protein.

    LOL...unfortunately I dont think that will be enough.....

    wii fit was designed to be a game. It was never designed to be a real workout. If you do the research you'll find what the designers had in mind and what the marketing team did to it.

    If you dont have money use some of the body weight programs here at RJ. You can do great things without any real equipment.

    Peace

    when i was 15, i never wnated to go to a gym, i started doing 100 push ups a day and 100 situps. then my friend told me im gonna ave an oversizedchest. i spent 80 bucks on a set of 20kg dumbells.
    so i added then into my work out.
    i then bought a chin up bar and did assisted chin ups with the dining room chair.
    after about a year of this i was still really small but gained alot more confidence and about 10kg. (cause i ate more too)
    i then started going gym by the time i was 17. itll take time but u gotta do more than just wii cause thatll just tone u up at most
