Help me work out.
February 2, 2012 6:21 PM Subscribe
I'm a 24 year old guy who's very skinny and has never really worked out. However, by virtue of sitting behind a desk every day for the last couple years, I've developed some stomach flab. Besides that, though, still skinny as can be.
I want to join a gym to accomplish a few things:
- lose the stomach flab
- get slightly bigger / more muscular elsewhere (tough since I'm so skinny…main area I'd like to improve are my arms)
- get some stamina
From what I know, the stamina part will come through cardio, but that'll burn a lot of calories and go against the whole 'getting bigger' idea. Would love for those with knowledge or experience to give me some ideas of what to do…machines to use, exercises to try, etc.
