WBB 1? I'm timid to post on the count of me being such a noob. But you should probably try to get to the a real gym if you can. I'd suggest you read stickies on gaining weight and such, it's helped me.

This is what your going to do:
1. Eat a **** ton of food, make sure its clean, make sure you have atleast 150-200 grams of protein. Every meal count out your 50 grams of protein or whatever and then just stuff your face.
2. When you go to the gym, you are there to punish yourself. The gym is your tool for transformation. You are focused. You do not start convos with your buddies or look at the cute girls. You put heavy weights on the bar and you force out every last painful, teary eyed, veins bulging rep. You imagine your arms are growing and filling the whole gym. You imagine you are god.
3. Get a split setup. Look around here. There is a ton of info. Write something basic and post it for advice. I suggest Mon/Tue/Thur/Fri. Alternate upper body lower body. Upper body should have heavy bench work or a variation of it. Lower should have heavy squats or deadlifts. Heavy mean less than 6 repetitions. Then you choose exercises for the other bodyparts and do them out 8-12 repetitions. When you stop progressing in any given exercise, you switch it up.



fish, chicken, lean red meat, pork..
oats, vegetables, whole wheat bread/pasta...

I like this routine it looks good the only changes i would have to make is dips in day 3 could i change this to chin ups and in day 1 i would have to change seated cable row or T-bar rows to something else i dont have either equipment to do them?

for ??

Bent over BB rows.

WBB1 routine did wonders for me. The only reason I stopped doing it was to shift to a powerlifting routine called westside.

Another tip is to learn to love the process.

Also, for foods make sure to eat a lot of healthy fats. They will help you in reaching your weight goals.
