I haven't lifted weighs in quite a while but when you get to doing calisthenics in parks and shit, I'll recommend doing a few sets of chin ups, clap push ups and triagle push ups for the shoulders then one handed push ups and muscle ups when you become strong enough (I can't muscle up for shit but it looks fun)
2019-01-23 21:45
it is all dependent on how much you weigh and how comfortable you are at different weights. there is not a right starting weight you just have to start from your best and work to improve that best.

no, but eat the most healthy food you can
2019-01-23 22:04
at your weight you shouldn't try to eat clean and healthy at all. You lack so many kg that eating dirty every day will literally have no impact on you so try to eat as much wings and McDonalds as you can and try to get n 3k calories at least

if you're 1.97m and 73kg then you're pretty underweight I'd say. Im somewhere like 1.72m and weight around 63kg meanwhile my classmates weigh around 60-100kg.

Does the bar count to that aswell. My bar weighs 20kg and i did 7.5kg on both sides. So I pressed 15 or 35kg?

Barbell counts too. Olympic barbells weight 20kg, so you pressed 35kg

35 is pretty good I guess, cause you have to be super skinny. Eat more.

You basically said nothing with that comment, lol. But get into lifting and you will get naturally more hungry since you need more energy. You will gain weight fast.

For stronger shoulders there is only 1 exercise really: Overhead press, there are different variants like seated press, military press or just dumbell press but as long as its upward pressing movement you'll get strong shoulders, make sure you have correct form though. If you want wider shoulders you can isolate your side delts with dumbell raises If you want strong arms to lots of rows for biceps and bench for triceps, if you want BIG arms just do those + extra isolation movements like Bicep curl, hammer curl or any barbell curl (for biceps) and presses/pulldowns like rope pulldown, narrow grip press, skullcrushers for triceps.

Do what he says but don't do the same exercises for more then 5/6 weeks or your body will adapt and it won't get any bigger. 35 kg in bench press it's good because you skinny and don't have that much strength, but it's only good if you are doing right, if not low the weights, first thing in any exercise it's doing the technique right, weight come after. If you wanna get bigger you have to count the calories you eat (good calories btw), it's pretty simple if you eat more then you spend you grow if you have a deficit calories you lose weight, you can use some app for 2/3 weeks that will help you take some knowledge of what you eat and how many you need, I recommend myfitnesspal, it helped me and I don't need it anymore because after a while you get some sense about portions and calories. You need to pay attention on macro nutrients too and that app help you with that too. And remember that any person who lifts hard started somewhere, take your time and your path with patience, it's not the same for everyone but do it right and the results will come, don't rush it or you may have some kind of injury that can cost a lot of days of training

2019-01-23 22:34
best advice here also make sure to eat more than you usually do if you want to get bigger

40 push ups a day
2019-01-23 22:05
i started without any weight, just trying to do clean reps with the bar. Then i started adding 5kg first and did that till i got to like 6-10 reps. After that you should already have a basic idea and feel free to up the weight.

I guess not, however it also heavily depends on your activity level before you joined the gym. If you haven't worked out that much before then it's not surprising Idk about your physical stats (height, weight, etc.) but 40kg is completely normal for young men. I had one fat friend who did 65kg without any training, albeit it was 3 reps

Ah, I see... even though you might want to focus a lot on chest and shoulders to compensate please don't overdo it to protect your shoulders (avoid rounded and forward shoulders at all costs)
2019-01-23 22:38
3 reps is not worth mentioning xD

20kg (10 on each side) + bar (20kg) = 40kg
2019-01-23 22:30
oh nice, I used to bench 60kg couple years ago when I used to go to gym, I was 64kg now I'm 61kg FeelsBadMan
2019-01-23 22:32
With the bar only lol
2019-01-23 22:29
For stronger shoulders definitely over head press imo
2019-01-23 22:29
wtf lol
2019-01-23 22:30
yep, when i started i struggled to bench the bar, was really skinny haha my bench was and is shit
2019-01-24 12:52
I started bench with 40kg now I lift 100kg For arms compound movements and a few isolation exercises For shoulders like the same 3 exercises the most mainstream ones you probably know which ones I mean

With bench always warm up with the bar and then just add weight onto it until you can't get it up anymore, try to use a weight you can do at least 5 reps with and try to increase the weight each week. Also if it's your first time or you haven't gone in a while you might want to get a friend to spot you or ask someone in the gym.
2019-01-23 22:44
I started bench from a 60, 20 and 20, and olimpic neck. Now i lift 140. Start from a very low height and systematically and slowly increase the weight, good luck! :)

Me personally I started with only a bar. Now my 1 rep max is 110kg

Weights are irrelevant when you're new. Focus on mastering correct technique on all exercises, so you dont injury your self.

When I went first into the gym I could only bench only the "rod", don't know what's it called. Then slowly went up the weights. TBF I was like 50 kgs back then. At 65 kgs now and happy with my 5'9 65 kg lean body

I started with 70kg, but I've been doing pushups and pullups for months before. About best exercises, you gotta find what you feel most comfortable with at the moment. Then as you become better you can progress into more complex exercises.
2019-01-23 23:04
I never worked out a day in my life so I started with like 20kg, 3 months later ~70kg but I felt I hit a plateau now.
