Workout advice
Slovakia rvDxd 
Hello I recently started working out. It has been like 3 months already and i can see some changes. But my goal is to be skinny but have muscles. I dont want to be so big like some of the guys. For example look at twistzz. He is skinny but he has muscles. Is it only genetics or is there a reason behind him looking so skinny and still having muscles ? If someone who has a experience can help i would be happy. Thanks

Then you shouldn't focus on maximum weights but more repetitions.

it's like the opposite, max weight for strength, more reps for mass
2021-06-13 13:51
you can combine the two idk how often do you go but for example do 2 days of gym and a day of calisthetics

Like you want to be dry? You'll have to follow a strict diet

You cant really be skinny with muscles. The term you are looking for is low body fat percentage with high levels of muscle tissue.

Yea its probably that because if take a look at twistzz: He looks pretty small ngl but still has muscles

muscles? not really, he is pretty damn thin. he maybe hits the upper body a BIT but he has no thighs at all so I doubt he does lower body strength training

2021-06-13 12:43
are you trolling? or maybe you're a 13y.o. girl cuz I see no muscles there. if your goal is to look like that just don't eat food and do bodyweight

Thats just straight being thin,not a lot of muscle there,fit at best
2021-06-13 13:57
gain weight and workout to gain strength until you get to the level of strength you want, then start cutting by changing to a higher rep workout routine and modifying your diet (less calories) that’s how it works AFAIK

Ty man. Appreciate you
2021-06-13 12:41
You burn neglegable calories with weight training,more reps dont have a considerable fat burning affect.Cutting is like 95% the food you take in,you burn little calories with other activities.Some cardio would be the best in that regard.

but it will burn more calories then a shorter workout with heavy weights and less reps while also having the added benefit of maintaining strength levels, if he was going for pure calorie burning their are better exercises but the focus is keeping muscle while losing weight so it is the best of both. alternatively he could maintain the weightlifting routine he was on (not progressing with heavier weights though) and add cardio but that is up to him
2021-06-13 14:29
First eat on a surplus (figure your maintenance calories and increase by 300) then do a cut with a 300 deficit and add in cardio so you can keep eating a lot

TBH, when you are shredded while being natural you'll always be kinda small xd My advice would be to eat around your maintanace level (calories) and stick to your workout plan and you will slowly gain muscle without gaining excessive fat
2021-06-13 12:51
as said above, its a bodyfat issue. If you're relatively new and kind of slim already, eat to maintenance and train hard, it'll take longer but you'll gain some muscle and lose some fat at the same time. Make sure you're progressively overloading with your training, do some sort of periodization, dont just go on 'feel' while training. Remember, the body builds and changes outside the gym. Working out just tells your body it needs to change, eat properly, sleep A LOT, drink plenty. Don't listen to any of the stuff above about low/high reps, it's all bullshit, you should have a varied rep range dependant on exercise for example x5 x5 x5 first compound (lets say bench) x10 x10 x10 x10 x10 (OHP/Incline BP)? secondary compound, 2 maybe 3 isolations for 8-12 (can be higher, it's been proven that different rep ranges signal different muscle fibre activation)

I know this is going to surprise you: Brazilian Jujitsu. The type of muscle and strength from grappling is not bulky but they are strong as hell and have endurance for days. A side effect is you can defend yourself. Pumping weights is fine if you want to be a power lifter or strongman. For normal day to day life the body type that BJJ players have is good:

I felt exactly like you 3 years ago, I was really skinny and was late in puberty (I'm 19 now) and I just grew taller but I felt like I was getting even thinner. Anyway so I started going to the gym doing the push, pull, legs routine which I still use today and in only a year I could see some serious improvements. When I started I could barely perform one rep with 40kg benchpress and I felt people looking at me in a mean way. One year ago when I was at my strongest point before my gym closed I did one rep bench with 90kg which I felt was unreal. I naturally have very little bodyfat and people who are naturally skinnier do so I'm sure you'll get the form you're looking for man!

You could have a look into fasting to speed-up the fat-loss(and increase calorie deficit). You could start by doing intermittent fasting and eventually try prolonged fasts. Prolonged fasts are more beneficial for other health aspects like autophagy and stemcells.

just focus on diet and do cardio in addition to weight training. if you are a "hard gainer", meaning a person who has difficulties to put on weight, it's easy for you to get the physique you're describing.
2021-06-13 14:17
Lmao You barely started working out and already afraid of being "so big like some of the guys" 🤣 Work out regularly at least for a half a year first) "Some of the guys" devote their lifes to be "so big", so you got nothing to worry about.
2021-06-13 15:01
You won't be "so big". These big guys push their limits every day and are on juice. Chill men
