Ok, that gives people a bit more to work with. If you have some more specific goals, such as a goal weight, or something like that I would add that to your question, and people can suggest specific programs/lifts.

What is it that you want to accomplish? This is very vague, and will result in a lot of "Well, I think you should do this" which isn't a good fit for the site. What are your goals?

@michael - See edited information. You were correct, I placed too much faith in textbooks without digging further. Mea culpa.

comment Can't sleep at night after workout
Can you provide a reference for your caffeine assertion? While it may be common knowledge, a link or corroborating reference would make your answer better.

comment I am a physically disabled person and I want to gain weight
Just as a clarification - The somatotypes that you refer to (ectomorph) were not truly physical classifications, and have been debunked. They don't really exist as fitness professionals think of body types.

comment 3-Site Skinfold Test Procedure
As it was put to me on another site, if we can't do better than google/youtube, we're just getting in the way.

comment 3-Site Skinfold Test Procedure
And? How exactly do you pick up the skinfold? What's the technique? "Here's a barbell with 250 lbs loaded on it. Go ahead, pick it up."

comment 3-Site Skinfold Test Procedure
The guide on the referred site mentions nothing about how to actually grasp the fold.

comment 3-Site Skinfold Test Procedure
It is nearly impossible to take an accurate skin caliper reading on yourself for limited site measurements. Some of the ones (such as subscapular, triceps) WILL be impossible on yourself.

comment 3-Site Skinfold Test Procedure
To add to this nice answer: When I was taught, we started with wide fingers and very mild pressure. Slide the fingers together in a pinching motion until they naturally stopped. Measure what remained between the fingers. It takes a bit of practice to get it smooth, but the more you practice the better the results get.

comment can we measure our cardiovascular endurance from swimming?
@user3840019 - Unless you have a mask capturing and testing your exhaled air, any test you use is going to be an approximation. Some of them get close, but you can't do a run test and compare it to swimming, except as an abstract "Ok, so you've got potential" kind of way.
