    Hey, I am a 5'6 male. Not much muscle. I weigh about 68kg.
    How muscular can I get in a month? I don't want to go to the gym but rather do exercises in my room.

    I was thinking of doing cardio as well and eating well to reduce body fat.

    Do you think I will see reasonable results in a month?

    Not in a month no. It will be minimal. Enough to encourage you to continue, as you will probably lose some water weight too, but 1 month is not much at all. Why such a short term goal?

    I don't think you'll see a noticeable difference in terms of muscle, but you might lose a few pounds of fat.

    I just wanted to see what would be the effects if I went all out for a month.

    You can add several pounds of muscle in a matter of months......if you take

    However if you wanna be natty you can expect to gain about 10 pounds of muscle......in a year (maybe).

    Remember building muscle is a sloooooww process.

    I think 3 months is a better starting point. You will see more significant progress and more importantly you will learn consistent training/eating better etc i.e. it will 'train' your commitment. I'm just over 9 months in on my 'transformation.' It's become a lifestyle change more than anything, which is what you should aim for.

    This. If you want to beast yourself for a month and then use that as motivation for a lifestyle change, you will be doomed to failure. Changes in physique happen slowly over time.

    I would rather just add in a few easy changes to diet that are easy to stick to and don't require much thought and gradually build up training at a rate that is fun and I'm able to cope with and just enjoy the continuous evolution rather than beast myself and ultimately be disappointed that a month doesn't make that much difference.

    Im a girl and I noticed a difference after the first 2 weeks of weight training and eating high protein and good carbs and barely any bad sugars.

    (its even harder for girls to notice change remember).

    It wasnt a big difference, but my legs got harder and my bicep got harder
