alright i know absolutely nothing about this. i got a friend who's an absolute beast and he'll be helping me but how should i go about doing this. i can buy a pass at my school for quite cheap giving me full access to the weight room, so i think im gonna do that, and every day im at school probably an hour before classes start, so if im not busy doing homework, ill go work out.

so what kind of weights should i be looking at doing? how much? reps, etc etc. how many hours/day/week? when will it become noticable all this stuff? thanks

I don't know about reps.

But remember to run a bit after you work out...then eat some meat (protein). I'm pretty sure that'll help a bit.

Don't work out before school. You'll smell like ass.

Take a lot of protein right before you work out.

Put whatever you're doing on a weight that you can do about 12 of.

Those are my tips

Do a low amount of weight, but lots of reps. It will get your muscles toned and prepared for heavier lifting later.

It depends on a lot of things. First and foremost, genetics. Some people will never be really cut or big. It's just the way it is. Second, your diet is very important. Different diets for different types of results. Third, rest. Resting a muscle group is as important as working it. Rest allows your muscles to fully repair. Fourth, variety. Keep your muscles figuratively guessing. You'll see the most results that way.

Anyway, generally the rule is light weight with high reps for definition, high weight with low reps for building. You should do exercises that work several muscle groups at once at first, and then do target training. Squats, bench press, shoulder press, lat pulldowns, eagle rows, and leg press should be the core of your workout routine. Then you can add curls, tricep pushdowns, leg curls, leg extensions, and other exercises that target single muscles/groups.

No matter what you choose to do, make sure you use good form, go through your complete useful range of motion (for example, your bench presses should be touching your chest, your squats should get your knees at a 90 degree angle, etc.), and use a steady pace. When in doubt, slow is better than fast.

Oh, and don't forget about your most important muscle - your heart. Do cardio for 20-30 minutes at least 3 times a week.

i dont know about the weight or reps or whatnot.
but whatever you do, do it infront of the tv. its good motivation. especially if youve got porn or something, then when youre done with your reps you know how to reward yourself.

Definition means your muscles are apparent and it's easy to see their contours, as opposed to bulk muscle like a World's Strongest Man competitor might have.

if your gonna work out at the school you should probably do it after school, unless your locker rooms got a shower system set up

definition like relaly tone muscles where you can see all the muscles and they arent covered in flab, like the body builders look like.

definition means that u'll be "cut" and ur muscles will be quite visible. ever seen someone who's thin but whose muscles are well noticeable? there it is.

and some advice: work out about 20 min after either waking up or eating since that's when your metabolism is at its fastest, meaning that that's when it burns the most calories.

Just start off with a lower amount of weight. It doesn't really matter how much you can lift, as long as you get a good work out, and if you're sore as hell, you know you got a good work out.

Also, when you lift, or do any type of work out, you want to go slowly. Like when you're doing reps, go as slow as you can when you lower the bar. Same goes with anything else, like pushups, etc.
