    I've been doing the 12 week muscle building plan on this site. I've been enjoying it so far and have had good results (Rome wasn't built in a day). I'm on week 6 right now, and I'm at the point where I go workout for the fun of it, not for vanity reasons. If you try anything for just a week or two you will likely fail. Make going to the gym a habit by picking a workout plan (whichever is the best fit for you) and go for at least a month to form the habit of going to the gym 5 days a week. All the answers are out there, you just have to do a lot of research. For us skinny guys eating enough quality food is just as important as an overweight person dieting while working out to lose weight.

    So if i had in mind doing bodyweight exercises, and I have at home a pullup bar and one set of 4 kgs dumbbells, what can i do exactly?

    to be honest, my self esteem is really low at the moment to go to the gym or to even ask gym pros what to do exactly, i have no fitness buddy, and my college tuition is extremely expensive which stops me from getting a personal trainer...any tips?
    And THANK YOU so much for replying!

    I agree with what you said about eating, so what do you eat exactly?? do u make some special high protein homemade smoothies? if so what are they made of?

    I started with push-ups, dumbbell curls, sit-ups, and bike riding several Km before I got the courage to join a gym. Stay focused on it and constantly tell yourself other people will see results before you do so don't expect a new body in a month. By about 3 months it should be easier to stick with it. Join a cheap gym when you feel brave enough start with a RJ program. There are lots of embedded videos that help explain the proper form.

    Don't make the same mistake I did: waiting too long before finally doing it.

    PS work out regularly and never miss a session when you are starting!!! If you andolutely have too, make it up as soon as possible.

    I drink a protein recovery shake after workouts.. but I try to eat real foods and keep it balanced: Eggs, whole grain bread, chicken, vegetables, and fruit. and avoid junk food and processed. frequent medium meals instead of 2-3 big meals per day.

    The twelve weeks exercise programs on here were designed by trainers that really know what they are talking about. I've met Bill Paulsen because he lives in SF, he is a fitness genius. Just doing squats,push ups and crunches will get anyone in shape.
