Getting Muscles when You're Skinny

Teenagers sometimes have a hard time gaining weight and muscle because of hormonal factors. They will usually gain as they get older. You can still build up some by eating more and doing weight training. It's best to go to a gym, but you can get some dumbbells and work out at home. Do sets of 8 to 12 repetitions and you will develop some muscle without getting too big.
