How long should I lift weights and how much weight? How long does it take to see results?

I’m 18 years old, 125 pounds, about 6 feet tall. I’m sick of being so damn skinny and I decided its time for a change. I tried lifting weights before but i never saw any results so i stopped. I’m trying to start again but before i do i want to make sure i’m doing it right. I want to gain muscle and weight at the same time. Can anybody give me some advice? Thanks.

    Start this routine:

    The program will require alot of patience to learn the form of the exercises perfectly, I recommend you choose the routine without power cleans as they take alot of time to learn to perform properly. You will start with an empty bar, progress 2-5kg weight with each exercise on each new workout. You’ll workout 3 times a week for anywhere between 30 minutes-1 hour. If you eat properly (125g protein and 2500 calories every day, more as you get bigger) you will gain 1g of muscle per week. In a couple months the physical difference should be very apparent.

    Doing the max of any exercise is not recommended, though. The obvious danger in doing that is that you could easily pull a muscle, injure yourself, and possibly be too sore to work out for a few days. On whatever setting you do any exercise, you should be able to do 10 of them. If you are going to bench 25 lbs, you should be able to do that 10 times. If you are going to do a shoulder press on 50 lbs, you should be able to do that 10 times. A good strategy is to do 10, take a 30 second break, do 10 again (same machine), take a 30 second break, and do 10 more (still same machine). That way you will be able to fully maximize the machine and what muscle you are working and not just giving a small amount of effort.

    You can lift lot of weight in effort to gain some weight. You won’t see results in days probablynot even in weeks. You just have to very consistant and most importantly get the nutrient you need.

    To try to gain some weight as well as some muscle mass, I would recommend you take mass gainer supplements. Which is a combination of fat, carbs, and protein to put some weights on.

    Don’t stop working out.
