    No, you just need to eat more food if your goal is to gain weight - and don't do unnecessary cardio.

    No it wouldn't, anyone who is severely under muscled can gain muscle really fast initially. And it's impossible to say anything about your genes until you've actually tried and done everything...

    If you gained 20lbs of muscle you would look good at 150-160. A little bit of muscle goes a long way and has much more visual impact than low BF% for this scenario.
