    hey guys. I'm a skinny dude looking to make a change. I've true protein and changing my diet but I can't seem to get any noticable muscle mass. I was wondering if hgh was an option and if so, how to get some. Thanks!

    HGH is not an option for you at 18. At your age your body is producing enough growth hormone naturally. You are too young to get started on anything other than a great diet and hard work in the gym. If you are an ectomorph, eat good carbs and proteins, as many meals as possible and spread out throughout the day.

    Stick to your hard work and good food and see what you can develop naturally. Dont expect immediate results, just get into the habbit of liking eating healthy and going to the gym. The more you do it, the more you will like it, and with time you will see changes. In ten years, if you think you have done everything there is to do naturally, you can consider juice...

    FYI - hgh on its own is not going to make you grow. it needs to be stacked with other stuff which your body doesnt really need! Its also very very expensive.

    As Palikari says, at your age, you should need very little supplements, and especially not HGH.

    If you're having trouble gaining, eat more and do less cardio. You don't have many pictures posted, so it's tough to see what you look like and how developed you are. That being said, at 18, you probably have a super high metabolism, so you are probably a really hard gainer (right now). Cut out any and all cardio for a few weeks, do some really heavy lifting, and eat tons.
    By heavy lifting, I mean squats, deadlifts, pullups, and bench presses, as heavy as you can, with all of those, but ensuring that you maintain proper form. Proper form is much more important than the weight, but you need to work really hard to pack the muscle on.

    Ok. thanks for all the great advice everyone. I didn't know that I should cut down my cardio. I do a lot of that. Thanks!
