    Nothing is going to be fast. If you have the patience and persistence, start learning your craft. Begin with the sticky threads at the top of this forum, also the ones in Workout Programs and Nutrition.

    Begin with a well known routine rather than trying to make own - at least initially.

    Focus on the main core muscle groups. Start small and work your way up (in different exercises).

    Many just hop on lifting manuals in front of the mirror to only workout the biceps.

    Deadlift, squat, bench(pushup), find something you feel comfortable with.

    Hey man, while you cant go from 0 to pro in no time, you can get results pretty quickly. What would you like to manage? Even in one year you'll see results, and let off some tension. Dont let anyone bother you!

    Start light, but not “this is way too easy” light with a weight that you can do 6-10 times.

    Do three perfect sets completing as many reps as you can each set. If you get 11 or more, try more next time. Write it down.

    Rest 2-3 minutes between each set.

    “Graduate}every time you can do 10 perfect repetitions …try a little more Weight….no cheating on your form. This is the key to making steady progress….getting stronger in that rep range= getting bigger.

    If you can’t complete at least 6, reduce the weights again.

    Eat more gradually as you grow. Try to match protein grams to your body weight, but spread that out for 5-6 meals. At the very least, match that in carbs too.

    Sleep, rest….give a muscle 2-3 days rest between workouts. Gradually add sets and exercises as you overcome soreness.

    Start simple:

    Monday and Thursday

    Squats
    Bench
    Row
    Overhead press
    Curls
    Triceps extensions

    After a few weeks of progress and in the absence of continued soreness add …

    Monday and Thursday

    Squats
    Leg extensions
    Leg curls

    Bench press
    Incline press

    Row
    Pulldowns

    Overhead press
    Upright row

    Curls
    Extensions


    Eventually you’ll be ready for an upper /lower split

    Monday and Thursday upper
    Tuesday and Friday lower plus bis/tris
