    I am a beginner and need tips

    Hello everybody. So my family has a lot of bodybuilders and I have always tried to remain skinny because that is what I thought I liked. The recently I decided I want to utilize my full potential and get as big as i can no matter what it takes but all I have is a giant barbell in my backyard with a lot of weights. I do not have a gym membership and I can't afford one so I want to know can I work everything with just that?? I'm also going to the store today to buy a lot of lean meats and fruits and vegetables. Any tips would be fine

    You have a rack or a bench? A barbell, weights, rack, and bench is all you need to get started.

    Find a novice routine, buy the bench and find some rack or rack-like solution. Squats, deadlifts, bench, and overhead press are foundational for almost any program.

    Also, without knowing anything about your family situation, think about if there are steps you can take to reach out and mend fences. Life is short.

    You cannot work everything with just that. But you can afford gym membership instead. You speak about lack of money and your upcoming trip for groceries, kind of one after another. Sure enough you have money, in general. And then you mention buying bench soon. Saving on a bench alone could buy you two months of quality workouts in a proper gym. Finding funds for gym membership is a matter of setting priorities and financial discipline.
