I was referred to this site by a friend of mine. I’ve been scrawny since about age 13 and no matter what I eat I just can’t seem to pick up weight as my metabolism seems to high.
I’m roughly about 186cm (6ft 1in -soz we work in metric where I come from) and weigh about 60kg (128 pounds) and I’m 20 years old. I’m so tired of being scrawny and really need some advice to help me out. I’ve bought a protein shake supplement as well as muscle growth supplements so I’m going to start on that this week. I am als definitely considering a good gym program but my problem is I feel so damn embarrassed when I walk into the gym and people see me battling with light weights and stuff while they are pressing 10 times the amount I can. ]
Is it possible to gain muscle and a good physique by only swimming or do I need to combine it with other exercises? If so, which exercises would you recommend to combine swimming with? (I tried a search of the site but my browser is a tad messed up so I couldn’t really access the database). I’m also anaemic and have low blood pressure so I can’t really push myself to extremes or else I’d pass out.
I’d appreciate any expertise you folks have to offer and also how to overcome the embarrassement when walking into a gym.
