Hey guys I'm new to this thread but thought if I could get help it would be here.

Background Information
I've just turned 20 years old and see myself as a fairly fit guy although I do smoke around 20 cigs a day.I would say I have an average body though I do have a bit of extra weight on my stomach area. I am pretty disappointed that my arms are fairly skinny in proportion to the rest of my body. I am in the armed forces and have been working overseas for the last 3 months I've been a little disappointed that I have not lost a bit of weight due to the heat and the amount of patroling I have been doing. I have access to a small gym facilitty tht includes a exercise bike, a couple of sets of dumbells 14g 16g, a benchpress (weight unknown concrete attached), skipping ropes and a bar to do pull ups.

What excercises, routines and tecniques would you recommend in order to build up the strength in my arms and get a bit bigger(bearing in mind I struggle with bicep curls at the moment) plus trim the pounds off my stomach. All help will be rewarded with rep thanks.

I tried Jack3d and was a fan of it. Definitely gave me a jolt before my workouts. Thing is though if you are going to go out and buy some then I would be getting a couple of containers because they don't last you pretty long. I had to do 3 scoops to get a kick so I was out pretty quick.

I bought a tub from a seller on eBay, liked it and then bought another 4 more.

If you have limited equipment I would suggest looking for a routine by Reg Park. These are easily found by just typing 'Reg Park Workout' on google. Reg just used dumbbells, barbells and a chinning bar and built a fantastic physique around those, granted though he did have amazing genetics.

For overall mass focus on heavy compound lifts i.e. lifts which use more than one muscle/joint such as bench press (Incline, Decline, Flat) squats, deadlifts, military press, clean and press, high pulls, pull ups, barbell/dumbbell rows. Google any of those if you're not sure what they are. For the last few months I had been doing a typical bodybuilders split e.g Monday: Chest/Triceps, Tuesday: Legs. etc. But have recently changed things up and now focus on heavy compound exercises 3 times per week. The benefit of compound movements is that becuase you're recruiting more than one muscle group to help you with the lift you're able to lift much heavier weights.

Don't worry about your arms, they will grow in time when you add overall mass to your body. Don't forget the biceps are a relatively small muscle when compared to pectorals or quads and the triceps make up most of your arm mass. John Grimek had 19 inch arms and he barely did curls of any kind.

Personally speaking I have seen more growth in my arms from doing compound lifts than isolation exercises such as concentration curls or kickbacks but that is down to my individual body.

Also remember that you can have the best training plan in the world but if your diet is poor and you don't get enough rest you will barely grow. Plenty of protein, ideally 1g per pound of bodyweight, healthy fats such as omega 3 found in oily fish and good carbs such as sweet potato and oatmeal. As well as this try and get at least 8 hours sleep a night.

I realise that all of this may be pretty hard for you due to your job, the best thing to do is improvise where possible. Like I said google Reg Park and have a look at some of his routines paticularly the 5x5.

All the best.

Yah I ordered a few more from bodybuilding.com. Kind of in a phase though where I am trying different things every time I make an order to see what works best.

Hi guys.

I'm currently trying to lose weight - i'm 16, 6f1 and 19stone.

I have been doing 20 minutes jogging per day on the Wii Fit roughly around 4500km (4 milesish) and stuck to this diet the last few days.

The Diet i have been sticking to is roughly 1200-1500 calories a day and consists of the following

Breakfast : Weetabix, Boiled Eggs, Shreddies.
Lunch : Salads, Soups With 1 Slice Of Bread
Dinner : Low fat Chicken Currys, Spaghetti Bolognase with not much Rice or Pasta. Fish ( lots of Salmon) with few potatoes but more brocolli

Snacks : Apples, Bannnas and Crackerbreads.

Am i going about this correctly?

need more vegetables in that diet (otherwise there will be various vitamin deficiencies) and for a bloke your size you need more than 1200 calories per day. Also you're likely going to get really bored if you just stick to those foods.

Also 20 minutes isn't really much, try and increase the time you're exercising. In addition to that try and do more in your day to day life eg get off the bus a stop early and walk a bit further. little shit like that all helps.

However its a good start, is sustainable and is something that you can work on.

I wouldn't really trust Wii fit. I would get out there and do some real physical work.

Your dinners aren't the best tbf. I would pack more protein in there as protein helps to burn fats. I would recommend you keep having eggs in the morning and you can mix it up a bit by having tuna in like say an omelette or something to make food less tedious. Lunch and dinner time I would try to eat some chicken breats, steaks, salmon and with some low carb vegetables. Invest in some fish oils to take in the morning too, they always help.

If your going to take my approach and pack some protein in, I suggest a lot more dedication to running outside of the house and some occasional push ups and sit ups at home minimum.

Sounds like everyone likes jack3d. Ebay is good to use too. Since I was comparing prices with bodybuilding.com with the site I go to, I thought I would post where I buy. Here is the direct link to jack3d;

http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/usp/usp.htm

Its a couple a dollars cheaper than on bodybuilding.com. I go that that site too for product reviews mostly and some training tips.
