Didnt know exactly where to put this..but hello everyone. I am 17 years old, 5'7, 117ish pounds (I know, under weight) and an ectomorph. Meaning I have a very fast metabolism and am naturally a skinny guy. I have never lost a pound or gained one for like 2 years no matter what I eat. I have always had that kinda six pack look though, and moderate muscular arms you know, I kill myself doing push ups and sit ups. You couldnt tell Im that skinny unless you weigh me haha.
But this does not show in my street clothes. Only when I take my shirt off do people see my abs or arms you know? I want to change this, I have recently started going to the gym frequently lifting heavy weights trying to gain serious mass so my arms fill out my shirt and I get impressive shoulders.
I went to the GNC 2 days ago and they gave me Pump Fuel, and this thing called Amplified Mass XXX. The AmpMass supposedly is supposed to give me alot of mass and help me out gaining weight and the pump fuel is a pre workout thing with creatine and things.
These 3 weeks I have been mistakenly focusing on my biceps and triceps thinking that was correct, but I just learned that in order to get very muscular you need to do compound exercises like bench press and other things like pull ups.
These two days I have been taking the AmpMass I notice some difference, although not entirely positive. For the first time in my entire life I would say, I am noticing a thin layer of fat on my stomach when I sit forward. I was shocked like what the hell? I dont know if I should keep taking this, it is a rather disgusting flavor and formula. But I am not sure. The Pump Fuel is great though, gives me energy.
Anyway, what do you guys suggest, what type of workout to get me an impressive upper body? Not worried about legs that much but I will obviously have to get better legs if I get better upper body. Should I do more weights less reps? Or what kind of particular work outs.
My schedule is somewhat random, Monday more or less Arms, Tuesday chest, Wednesday shoulders, Thursday abs. Friday Saturday Sunday rest. But I think this is not correct.
Anyway sorry for this long paragraph, hope you can help. thank you.
I have included pictures so you get a basic idea of where I am at.
Couple are flexing couple not.
