    Getting bigger


    I have been small my whole life and I'm really starting to get serious about getting bigger.. I have been lifting for a month and my bench started at 135 and now I'm doing that 10 times but I really haven't gotten that much bigger. I'm doing a pre workout and whey protein after but what would be some good workouts to bulk up?

    What does your diet look like? Thats the main thing needing to be addressed.

    It takes a lifestyle change. Learn about doing a bulk diet. Figure out you caloric maintenance level. Then make sure you add 250-500 calories to that. Eat clean natural foods. If you don't gain, keep adding every couple weeks. Train hard and sleep well. And be patient. Something easier said than done.

    I'm in your same boat and trying to bulk. Good luck

    without knowing stats no one can say how many calories. gaining fat is not the ideal way to gain weight

    You've only been lifting for a month. It takes time to get bigger. Research a good lifting program and get your diet in check and gains will come. And make sure you get 8-10 hours of sleep a night.
