    I joined a sportsclub! Im having my introductioncourse for all the fitnessmachines on thursday. I'm going to try to get a bit bigger shoulders, biceps and get my chest/sixpack a bit more defined.
    Any tips? Also with eating and stuff??

    You seem to have missed your back, and most importantly, legs.

    Any program should include all of your body. 2/3 of your lean muscle mass is in your lower body. Any program that fails to include legs (provided you're not disabled) is idiotic.

    The single most important thing you can do with training is to EAT.

    After that, discipline, consistency, recovery,... all play a role.

    Increasingly progressively load with increasing calories, and time, is how you make gains. It's simple. It's science. You just have to do it intelligently.

    Learn to breathe right when you are lifting and doing resistance
    Let the showoffs strain, twist, contort their bodies and maintain bad form as they get red faced trying to lift heavy weights. Try to keep your neck relaxed. Go easy and lift a comfortable weight.
    Remember you have a lower and upper both.

    EAT!...the right foods.....lean protein....complex carbs and drink lots of water. In terms of nutrition, do some homework on when and how to eat.

    And for the sake of your fellow gym members, please don't slam the weights.

    Good luck and enjoy it!

    I do believe that i already have a reasonable strong lower body.
    I had to bike to school for 4 years and that was 27miles a day, i havent biked in a while ofc and it was like 3 years ago, but it should still be there a bit? right? Anyway, I will do some of those practices too but I really need/want to get bigger shoulders, look more masculin.
    And could you name some specific foods?
