Okay so around March I worked hard to lose only my belly fat..then like in July I literally reduced in size.. I lost like 15lbs..which is not really good cuz my weight was already good enough. Anyways my question is.. how do I get bigger muscles? Im working hard to get back to my weight but only with muscles.

Recommend me some workout programs

What I often do is bootcamp I

P.S. any good no equip. workout for shoulders? They dont seem to grow with pushups and pull ups

Shoulder Killers works for building size and strength. Let me know if it works for you.

Eat protein after working out. Use weights or do bodyweight exercises.

Alright I should start getting protein shakes. Thanks :)

better eat meat, fish, eggs and other natural protein. I don't like protein shakes, pills and stuff like that

If you wanna stick with body weight exercise your size increase is limited. You can wear a weight vest or something. You can do inclined pushups (feet up increases the weight) you can do the exercises very slowly with close attention to form.

Of course building muscles needs the building blocks.  Eat protein afterward, as much as twenty grams, within 45 minutes, is the latest info from what I've read lately.

Besides that yeah I think you might want to look into weight training to gain more muscle.

I recently looked at this article on Mes Health all about the best pre workout protein shakes, the best post workout protein shakes, and the best before bed shakes

Now, each section had a link to the Mens Health store, so, take it with a grain of salt cuz they're def trying to sell something.

I'm not body building just looking to improve my condition right now with body weight exercises, so my post workout protein comes from tuna straight out the can and a hard boiled egg. I get these big cans of tuna and a quarter can is about 17g protein, maybe in America a half can is about 16g? And a hard-boiled egg if I remember is about 6.  Now I am by no means a nutritionist just read a lot and was vegan for four years so had to learn a lot to be healthy, and there's probably a more efficient way, but the rest of my protein comes from chicken and brown rice and occasionally beef. I don't worry too much about it but I try to get some protein after i work my muscles (pullups and pushups and such)

There is tons of info on this stuff out there, the trick is finding it. I Recommend stumbleupon for checking health and nutrition interests and it takes you to random websites about that stuff you might never find just googling.
