    To start training and to start eating properly to help him grow would be a good start.
     
    Can't really elaborate too much cos there's not much to go on there. But he doesn't have to go mad if he's not that into it and not looking for extremes. A solid 2 or 3 day split would see hime heading somewhere positive for a start.

    Yeah my advice was to eat more but he actually does eat alot.
     
    family dinners and sunday dinners you name it. but he avoids the veg and snacks on crisps and things but he is soo skinny so it must be a high metabolism.
     
    Would supplimenting with Creatine or a good all in one shake see gains if he started to weight train and eat better..

    Hi there Shane. Well the first thing your Brother in law needs is dedication and patience as it takes time to get results when lifting, providing you have a correct program & Diet, many people will stop after a few Weeks or Months if they're not getting results. 
     
    Well let me introduce you to (SDB) Squats, Deadlift and Benchpress. These three compound exercises are the most important when lifting & should be his focus as they will increase overall strength and mass. Other exercises should be viewed as supplementary and be built around (SDB). E.G Mon, Bench, Tues, Deadlift & Fri Squats. 
     
    Remember form! it's incredibly important when Squatting and Deadlifting that you are following proper form otherwise you will cause yourself a serious injury like a herniated  disc, torn knee ligaments etc etc.
     
     
    Diet. Make sure you are eating two grams of Protein per 1 pound of bodyfat. Obviously Meat & dairy products have the highest amount of protein but  you can find a good amount of Protein in Cashew nuts etc.

    Don't start straight away with Creatine try and gain some natural results first.
