    Breathing squats with a barbell across your shoulders behind your neck, weight - as much as you can handle & try and increase it 5 lbs. per session. 20 reps nonstop, except to catch your breath, twice a week. You should be huffing and puffing like a freight train when you finish. Do no other weight exercises, and 6 weeks of this will pack muscle on your entire body. Be prepared for a much higher grocery bill as you will have an appetite like a horse. This is old school, and works, it was advocated by Perry Rader, editor of Iron Man magazine in the 50's & 60's. I did it when I was a teenager and gained 20 lbs. in the 6 week period, simple but very effective.

    I have a cousin who's 5'11" and weighed 160 pounds a few years back. He got tired of being skinny, so he started working out and had a daily regiment of vitamins, creatine, protein shakes and so on. He also started eating everything in sight, especially pasta. After about six months, he weighed 185 and looked really ripped.

    He managed to keep up that lifestyle change for a couple of years, but in the end, he went back to a normal diet and cut back on exercising. What happened? You guessed it. He now weighs 160 pounds and looks skinny again!

    The moral of the story is that there's no easy fix for permanent weight gain. You may pull it off in the short term, but you'll have to keep at it for the rest of your life or you'll go back to being skinny again. It's up to you to decide if you have the motivation and discipline to work on it for the rest of your life.

    Define skinny. How tall are you and how much do you weigh? Some people have the metabolism of a shrew. High energy, go go go, high achievers, involved in everything. Is this you? You may think you're skinny, because the rest of us are fat.


    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    I would suggest 12oz. Curls. For best results, 6 a day for 25 years.
    When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

    To build muscle you need to lift heavy weights,to tone muscle you go for repetitions with lighter weights.

    If you do change your diet to higher protein , also begin researching weightlifting , you can do this. I would actually seek out someone who knows this (a trainer) you need to know what you are doing ! Your health depends on doing this slowly , with a logical plan .

    A guy who weighed 137 pounds went to Alaska. By the time he came back a year later he was a husky f'er.

    AND THE NUMBER 1 ANSWER... Medical cannabis.

    I'll leave it to you to figure out where the opposite goes.

    If your heart is in it you will find a thousand ways to achieve your goal.
    If your heart is not in it you will find a thousand excuses.

    Ouija Board and map dowsing , one and the same. Just tape a map onto the Ouija Board and you have map dowsing.
    Works great if you like wild goose chases and snipe hunts!

    L-rods are obsolete.

    May you never take one single breath for granted.
