    F25 newbie here and have a few questions if someone could help please

    5'1, 105 lbs. I usually eat 1600 kcal and I'm quite sedentary

    There's some things I'm confused about and I'm hoping someone more experienced will be able to help. Basically I want to start working out properly at the gym (I've never worked out with weights before) but because of some health issues I want to start slow and to go twice a week and only wish to focus on my lower body as that's the main part that I don't like about my body. I want to gain a tiny bit of muscle in my legs, just so they are more defined and to lift my butt and make it look rounder. I have round hips and a small waist so I don't want my hips to get smaller either.

    My questions are as follows:

    What exercises should I do, what would be best for a beginner and is twice a week still good as to see se progress for example within a month?

    If I want to gain muscle, do I need to eat a calorie surplus(and protein) just the two days I'm going to the gym or all week? Or maybe the days I'm going to the gym and a day after?

    Thank you in advance and I hope i don't sound dumb ☺️

    Hi Maria! What kind of 'health issues' do you have?
    Fact: My first-generation uncle was a boxer who fought Sugar Ray Robinson! He also fought in the war, sacrificing the career he deeply loved, so people could have the right to freedom.

    Let's show RESPECT for the POLICE and ALL FIRST RESPONDERS by helping to keep THEM SAFE AND SOUND, and thereby able to PROTECT US!

    I've had chronic knee pain on and off for the past few years. They are okay now but I still get some pain when I go up the stairs etc. Doctors haven't been helpful and I was told I have runner's knee.
