    You'll be able to gain *some* muscle mass and get bigger to an extent but as big as the rock? Or even close? Probably little to no chance! Eg my bro was always skinny and he has a home gym which he uses for about 3hrs a day and he's definitely gained muscle mass but he'll never be big.
    So does it make a difference if i go gym or not. Wow that's a bummer, I would've worked my a** off at the gym . So say if i get fatter later in life, then will i be able to get big?

    In college a year ago i remember my tutor saying to us that we are in our prime years and that these are the best years to work out.

    He still takes them?! Does he need them anymore. On his Instagram he constantly works out at the gym, so why take more steroids.

    You don't turn fat into muscle that's now how our body works.

    Gym is of course worth it as you will gain muscle mass if you train just unlikely you'd be able to get huge with out the use of steroids.

    And the obvious other benefits of health.

    Lol yeah i know how they work and all that but i remember watching a video on YouTube about The Rock and he said he only took steroids once, and nothing happened to him. I think he's so big because if his family (father and grandad was also wrestlers and huge). And he's Samoan and African so i guess genetics played a huge part in making him so big.

    I don't want to get huge. Huge is the wrong word. I guess you can use heavyweight boxers as a example. I want to look medium and toned, not ripped.

    Okay well that's a more reasonable goal. My suggestion would be get a PT who's also qualified (degree level) in nutrition/dietetics

    Im about 5.7-5.8. I don't think I'm malnourished or anorexic or anything like that. Just really skinny.

    Mate, even if you're 5'7" you are still incredibly underweight. I would genuinly question if 45kg is an accurate weight, how have you come to that? You would look emancipated.

    You would medically be classed as anorexic (this is different from the eating disorder anorexia nervosa) because your BMI is 15.5. Now, whilst I accept BMI is not a particularly great method for measuring weight in athletes, I think it gives us a reasonably appropriate insight into your body composition.

    The only time I've ever seen people who are your weight and size has been in a gastro ward. You need to seriously start eating food, and may even be worth a trip to the GP to be perfectly honest.

    What do you eat in your average day, if anything at all?

    No they're not. Isn't it illegal in professional sports?

    I normally eat three times a day. Cornflakes in the morning. Junk food (mostly chicken and chips with Pepsi) for lunch. And for dinner i eat whatever my mums made (sometimes rice, chicken, lasagne). But yeah I'm not that bad that i need to go doctors lol. They know that I'm skinny but its not so extreme like your suggesting lol.

    That shot of your arm doesn't show anything ****ly (Why the **** is r.eal a swear word?). I've seen approx 8-10 people in my life who fit the size and weight you have given, all on gastro wards, all severely underweight.

    I stand by my original advice, either your height and weight are inaccurate, or you could do with seeing a GP.

    OP, no offence here but you seem to be extremely ignorant about physiology, nutrition and exercise. My advice would be to forget everything you think you know, and read the sticky, and do some better research.

    - Fat can not be turned into muscle
    - you do not have a fast metabolism
    - you do not eat enough
    - junk food is not good for gaining muscle
    - The gym is full of other skinny people
    - etc.

    Cheers babes. I've also realised that it's past dated all the usages of the word on the site previously.

    It might be worth looking over the FAQ as I've already spotted one incidence in BKS "realistic expectations" section and I don't know if there'll be more.

    It's due to a spam bot, using the term real as a part of it's spamming

    It's a method of taking the spammer down and is temporary, it should return to normal in the near future
