Go to the gym on alternate days and do weights....do weights at the higher end of your strength 'limit'...this will tear the muscles and when you rest the next day they will heal but stronger and larger than before.

Doing lots of reps of small weights serves to increase your strength...but not bulk.

Indeed, as hard as it sounds, muscle tearing is an effective exercise.

Go to the gym every other day, do an alternate routine. For example, so youre doing the same routine every OTHER visit to the gym. You want to be doing about 8 reps of each exercise before you 'fail'. Remember to increase the amount you are lifting, or the number of reps EVERY session. If you fail to improve 3 sessions in a row, reduce training frequency(go every 3rd day rather than every other day).

With regards to eating, do NOT increase the amount you eat, eat normally. If you can, try and eat foods with a higher protein content.

Well youre doing it wrong then. Ive been doing this since september and have put on about 30 pounds of muscle so far. It works.

Probably at about 2 pounds a week if youre doing things right. But it slows down after youve put on about 15 pounds.

Do pressups, I used to do them until my wrist stopped me (I'm too lazy/embarrassed to go to the gym, although that WILL change after half term by the way due to certain circumstances! heh) Now I rely on swimming but I'm sure just doing 50 a day can make a difference, hardly takes a minute either.

It does absolutely nothing, all youre doing by doing a large amount of pressups is burning calories. At first you may notice a small increase in 'bulk' or 'strength' but after that its just the same as going for a run(except it burns calories at a fraction of the rate running does)
