So I'm skinny, and I began going to the gym, I started first weekends doing very small weight (5 kilos) but in a correct form, doing 4 series of 15 reps for every exercise/machine I did/used, I don't really know if you can get strenght that fast, but now like after a month and a half I were doing all the way up to 22 kilos for back and chest, and for arms and legs about 10-16 kilos. I read that you could only charge up to 50% of your weight, 22 it's close, but anyways some guy told me some things like:
- I would damage my articulations (believable and actually true)
- Energy used for growing would go to the muscles regeneration (I eat more since I started going to the gym)
So I ended up doing 17 kilos 30 reps, because with 11 kilos I was just going to do like 100 reps until beginning to feel the muscle working. Should I do insanity or should I keep doing what I'm doing, obviously I'm not gonna grow up crazy muscle, so I don't really care a lot about that part altough I would like to see results lol. And also it's true that I won't grow up? I'm near 5'11 but I want to grow more lol.
