    Hey Jocks,

    I'm looking for any work out tips for a beginner. I'm what you'd call a "typical twink," I've got the boyish slim body, with no muscle features. I've tried doing the sit-ups, jogging, swimming, and other body strength work outs but nothing seems to happen. I have a body shot on my profile that will show you what I look like. I'm not necessarily looking to bulk up, just want to work on getting some abs and possible pecks. I do have some exercise equipment at home and am currently not a gym member. I'm good at sticking to diets with food, just need help finding some effective workouts to try.
    Thanks.

    workout tips:

    join a gym and hire a trainer. why would you waste your time doing something that won't maximize your results? why would you do anything less than 100%?

    you're welcome. icon_biggrin.gif

    Start walking [fast] 20-30 minutes a day, almost every day.
    Do that for a month or so to let your body get adjusted to a higher energy level.
    Then do what iRaptor said.

    Start with the weight machines before you jump to free-weights because they can help teach you what proper form to use, and how to pump the muscle while you're working it.

    Also, you're better off spending your money on a gym membership and on all sorts of supplements at this stage of the game.

    I'd start out with resistance training. You can get all over definition. Once you get a good amount, you can move into more intense strength training.
