Hello all. I have just downloaded this app and it's great! Lost 10kgs in 6 months and now I am focused on building my muscle. But it has been 4 months since I am trying to do weightlifting at home. Didn't get much muscle and those biceps. :(
Perhaps a little help? Should I eat protein supplements? 17y'o here and still at school. Thanks!

Good to know then! I thought that I did it wrong. But my friends had been to gym for about 4 months and he's just look a tad more muscular than mine! Could be me though :)

Push your self a litte bit more and do it every other day. And try to run a tiny tinny bit. Make sure you eat a lot if calories and drink water after a workout.

I can't go to gym yet so I do my workouts at home mostly. I can only used a treadmill and 3 different weights of dumbbells and 2 benches. Do you think this is enough? Or should I use more tools by going to gym?

It takes 4 weeks fot you to see the difference
8 weeks for your friends to see it
And 12 weeks for the world to notice the changes

And has no point consuming 100 cal and then burn 90 and expect change...
Pay attention to what you eat, bcuz you are what you eat...

Its better a slow progress than no progress

Goodluck

In order to see muscle you need low body fat. If you have low body fat increase the weight. You should have a nice burn after the 9th or 10th rep. If not add more weight.

Also, diet is the most important factor IMO. Your diet will vary depending on your fitness goals.

I have supplements and protein but honestly there's no point unless you already keep up the lifestyle 70% what you eat 30% what you do.so just keep working hard and the results will come rolling in slowly but surely and you'll be able to look back knowing you made it :)

At 17 you dont need any protein supplements.Remember everything gets processed through kidneys etc.Get your necessary protein from natural food,stay away from the gimmicks.And u might want to join a gym,no one ever does 100% at home...

Now THIS. I must said I had a kidney issue when I was 3. Will take note of it. I really want to go to the gym but studies and exams stop me. Could take another year for me to join one, so home's the only option. :(
