sportyred 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.
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.
xrichx 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.
I'll have a look at that, thanks
KSUOWLYeah 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
That's true, they should have included a fat/muscle mass test.
No lifting weights, not weights to speak of. (See above)
Lostboythe 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
I love the sun. It's just the people. It's a disorder >.>
FivealiveEchoing 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 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
