    Lightbulb Any ideas on how to bulk up?

    5'4"
    - Approx. 7st 4lb
    - 14

    So ideas? I've just finished my academic year for the summer, I have time and I want to work out etc but i'm skinny [naturally] so...

    Any ideas? I've got eat loads of protein and meat.. [possibly lots-o' junk food for the fatness ]...

    Though I'm not going to consider taking protein shakes as I'm only doing it to be fit/have strength and be toned...

    I do quite a bit of normal cardio e.g running/football [soccer] so...

    I am a complete novice and shit so bear with me xD

    It will take a lot longer to bulk without supplements. At the very least get a multivitamin am omega3 fish oil supplement, they're beneficial no matter what you do.

    Heavy weight, low rep, many sets. Don't do cardio while bulking or your gains will take much longer. Eat carbs before you lift. Don't eat junk food nearly as much.

    Bulking is quickest with a protein shake and creatine, you can always just do one cycle of the shake and creatine and time for two cycles, etc.

    Don't eat foods with saturated fats, and if you're not taking protein or creatine at least take an amino acid supplement.

    Not much you can do without supps, just heavy weight training.

    Also, you do gain strength with the shakes and supplements, it's not just for looks. Without supps I could add 10 pounds every three weeks to my curling bar, with them I could ad ten pounds a week. I'm on my cutting cycle and I can still lift just as much even though I've been off the supplements for a month

    I am also very skinny. Just be sure to eat a lot of food with a lot of proteins if you don't want to take supplements (That's what i do) I gained 5 lbs in 2 weeks Be sure to go to the gym at least 4 times a week (AT LEAST). Eat a lot, but don't eat shit!

    I almost forgot, working out you should do two days consecutively, days rest, day on, rest, repeat.

    so do you mean that I:
    Work out on:
    Monday, Tues, wed, Fri, Sunday, Monday?

    Or like:

    Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Sunday, Monday?

    *NOTE: I don't want to be a body builder, i only want to bulk up for light / mediocre toning - basically, i don't want to be ripped.*

    @Lehsyrus Don't you need to load up on creatine so your body is saturated to attain optimal results.

    That helps a lot actually. You're going to want a lean protein diet the . Grilled chicken will be your new best friend for the next two months. Eat it as much as possible.

    You don't want to get fat and then burn it off, that will cause your metabolism to slow way down when you're older. When you gain fat from lifting it should only be because you're taking in excess protein and carbs.

    As for what carbs to eat I like to eat two servings of brown rice before I lift.

    Amino acids assist in boosting energy, aiding in protein synthesis, burning fat, and boosting muscle gains while depleting your lactic acid levels to let you work harder.

    At the very least take an amino acid supplement and a Nitric Ocide Pre-workout booster. Neither have any bad side effects and won't cause you to become jacked, they'll just help you workout harder and more efficiently. I take NO boosters even while I tone to help my muscles tone more quickly. For your Amino Acids look up BCAA supplements, thy contain all eight amino acids your body needs.

    Bulk for just one month if you don't want to become jacked. Then do toning workouts (IE: Cardio + many reps with a light weight).

    Keep taking the amino and NO supps throughout your toning, it really helps aid with the muscle repairing process and can define your arms like you'd never dream.

    Working out schedule: Sunday, Monday, Rest, Wednesday, Rest, Thursday, Friday, Rest, Saturday, Rest, repeat starting on Monday.

    You'll need heavier weights to build muscle. Remember bulking and toning are different. Bulking builds muscle and increases strength while toning defines the muscles and increases muscle endurance.

    Not necessarily, Creatine does boost results dramatically but OP wants to even his body out. In this case I wouldn't recommend it only because he wants to have definition over bulk

    you are still in the process of growing, between the time of adolescence(teen) you don't gain meat (fatter) . You only grow in height so these are usual aspects for the teens.

    after the process of adolescence thats when you gain meat but your height stops.

    I play basketball pretty often and I find myself to be decently muscular. I've never lifted in my life. I'm not saying that you shouldn't go all out with the protein and lifting, I'm just saying that you don't need to go crazy to gain a few pounds.
