    Look up 'feltching' and that's what you're a victim of boy. Half the members on here probably lift twice what you weigh, stop criticizing others and give some useful tips and advice. I'm happy with what I nkow because in the end I know I can

    deadlift-95kg-10 reps

    Bench 100kg-10 reps

    SQUAT-105KG-10 REPS
    125KG-1 REP

    So the things I do are obviously working period!!
    yOU'VE BEEN DRINKING PROTEIN SHAKES SINCE YOU WERE 14 AND I'M GUESSING WORKING OUT SINCE THEN AND U CAN BENCH MORE THAN YOU CAN DEADLIFT? GTO RIGHT NOW

    you know
    Hey man, cheers for the advice

    Okay, have filtered through this thread and come to this timetable:

    MON: HITT (15mins in total, 60 secs jog, followed by 30 secs sprint with 10 repetitions)

    TUE: Starting Strength. Squat/Bench Press/Deadlift. Will ask the gym instructor how to do these and aim to do 3 sets of 10 reps of each exercise, of whatever weight I can manage at first!

    WED: HITT

    FRI: Starting Strength


    Will take one protein shake every day and basically cut out all the sugary/salty processed foods etc from my diet.

    Does this sound alright? I dunno what else to add in, remove? Like, my friends say they're gonna work out the back or whatever one day, then their lower body another day? How does that work? And having just 15 mins at the gym seems a bit pointless, no?

    Achhh, so confused...

    Its a good start, you could add in another day of starting strength. If you're really keen on bulking up then PM me and I'll send a dietary guide your way.

    No, they're the only exercises you should be doing, starting strength is pretty much entirely free weight exercises, just the relevant ones.
