Hello, everyone. I am 189 cm (6"2), 71 KGs and I HATE the gym. I hate lifting weights and I think it's the most boring thing in the world. I play football( soccer ) but that isn't enough to build muscle. I have a super high metabolism rate, as I can eat all day super fatty food and I never gain weight. I tried going to the gym and forcing myself to go there, only to lose interest every time. I have a strong core, but I'm just that, athletically strong. It doesn't show on my body. What do I do? Any help, suggestions, or advice are very much appreciated. Heck, I'd even accept inspirational quotes.

Trust me, I tried everything. I went healthy for 6 months.. Nothing. Protein shakes, protein and carb-rich meals.. Nothing. Junk food, chips and Sodas.. Nothing. People would kill to have this, and I am grateful, but it is a major problem for me trying to gain weight

My problem is with lifting weights bro. I have no interest whatsoever in it. Maybe I should try Calisthenics?

Calisthenics are a great alternative to weight training. Check out Convict Conditioning. There are some great step by step exercises there to help you progress toward amazing muscular fitness. You should also be eating at a slight to moderate surplus of calories if you really want to gain some bulk. Check out http://iifym.com/iifym-calculator/ to help you figure out what you should be eating and how much. Everyone is different so it may take some searching and experimentation to find what works for you.

Good luck!

Try to do pull up circuits and do the 6 pack abs programs. It really helped me get stronger.
