    I'm 5'10 and weigh 70KG ( +/- 1 KG ). I know I'm really skinny at the moment , but what would be a suitable target for me , I don't go to the gym , so don't want to put on a lot of weight or I might end up chubby.






    I don't want anyone to tell me I'm skinny and need to pack on some muscles + fat , because I already know this. And even if you do it's not going to effect me .

    So is 5KG a good target , or will I just look really chubby ?. I don't know ?.

    Sure ?. I need more muscles don't I. Just like a bit more toned , I don't go to the gym so I guess I'm a decent size , but I just want to put on some weight .

    I shouldn't be asking you anyway you're probably way older :giggle:

    I'd have thought a simple opaque circle would have done the job. Top marks for effort. You're not skinny either

    Right .


    I'll do some press-ups then and some dips , Infact I have normal dumbells. But I figured if I used them for my arms , in a year my arms could possibly be seriously out of proportion to the rest of my body :P.

    Thanks aswell !

    u can do other stuff with dumbells

    TBH u have a decent base to build from

    so dont mess it up by eating to gain 5kg cos u will get fat unless u are training at the gym to use them extra nutrients

    eat same as u do
