    I need some help.

    I’ve been wanting to bulk up for some time now, but I always come across the same problems every time I try to start. I’m around 5’10 and I weigh around 140 pounds, I’m not too skinny but i really want to bulk up. Every time I try to eat in a calorie surplus I or just eat more in general I throw up. I don’t know why but my body won’t allow me to go past my already small limit. Maybe I have gone about it the wrong way, but I’m not sure what to do. I want to dirty bulk because any mass whether it be fat or muscle would be appreciated. Does anyone have any tips plans that they have that could help. And also I am a runner and have very little lifting experience, actually working out experience in general, advise on that would be helpful too. Any thing would be appreciated. And by the way I’m 20 I don’t know why my age got set wrong

    Don't dirty bulk; it never turns out good.
    Just try to eat a little more each day. Weigh yourself often and try to gain 1/2 lb per week, consistantly, every week. And this won't take much, really it's just a little more every day. Add 1 more peanut butter/banana sandwich, pick up a tub of protein and make some shakes:
    protein
    peanut butter
    yogurt
    banana
    oats
    milk...mix all this in a blender and drink this throughout the day. This would add some good quality whole food to your day in an easy to do form.

    As far as weights, start out easy with an upper/lower/upper split.
    Learn some exercises and hit all your muscle groups...don't skip anything! Build a complete package; don't be a bench/curl guy!
    On upper day:
    delts, chest, back, bis, tris

    Lower day:
    All aspect of legs...quads, hams, calves

    Train 3-4 times per week, throw some rest days in there, eat well, weigh yourself so you know if you're eating enough and again, just shoot for 1/2 lb gain per week.
    If you follow this consistantly for at least 6 months, you'll see some gainz

    Thumbs up Another person with the same problem

    Thanks so much for the advice! I’m in literally the same situation as him. I’m in Army AIT right now and I have only access to some elastic workout bands that my friend snuck into the barracks, we have no access to workout equipment until February 25th. Weighing in at about 143lbs and 5,11” height. I’m going to try this method.
