    I'm a 17 year old guy and I would be very thin but I really want to gain more muscle (especially in my arms). However, I do weight training 3 times a week (for about an hour; swapping between upper body x2 week, lower body x1 and upper body x1, lower body x2) and cardio twice a week (30-45 minutes rowing).

    However, as i'm very skinny, I'm also very weak and so for my upper body workout, i lift about 7-7.5kg dumbbells and for lower body I would use 7.5-8). I've been doing this for a few months but it hasn't got any easier and I haven't seen any improvement. I have to use dumbbells at home cause I can't afford a gym and there is none convenient to me.

    I was wondering what would be the best protein powder for someone like me to use (a link to somewhere like amazon would be great)?

    Also would protein power increase the amount of fat on my body (e.g. around stomach) because I am very self-concious in that sense, even though I know I'm skinny.

    If you are interested in my workout routine for my upper or lower body, let me know below and I'll add them if it would be helpful.

    Much appreciated! This is something that is very important to me.

    Hi Niall,

    I would definitely recommend checking out these beachbody performance supplements. There are different supplements for different needs (ex: energy, recovery, weight loss, etc.) Also offers packages. What's really helpful about this is that you can customize your package just by entering your goal (weight loss or muscle gain, etc.) your weight and what activities you engage in and it'll customize a specific recommendation for you. Good luck! https://www.beachbody.com/product/su...supplements.do

    Firstly, you don't really need protein powder, eat healthy and just eat more than you burn and I would recommend going to a gym. Unless you have a squat rack some barbells and a bench at home.
