New here...some advice needed

Wow. Now i've seen everything!
Didnt know there would be such a forum for muscle/body building :)

I'm new here and hope to improve my physique.

I actually require some advice on how I can build some muscle.
I'm not fat, or too thin, im pretty much in between.

I have some stamina/physical energy but not as much as one should.
I've not done much excersizes since I had a severe accident about 5-6 years ago now.

I want to build some muscle. I do some excersizes such as sit ups/press ups/riding an excersize bike but I always love to take long walks and "fast" walks.

I would like to build my chest and upper body. What is the best way of doing this? What things do I need? What about diet?

I dont eat junk food, I dont eat crisps - maybe a packet every 4 months.

What can one do to build up the strength and physique? Would be nice if it can be done using household items, if at all.

Any advice for a total newbie appreciated :)

Thanks!

    i reckon it's that packet of crisps every 4 months holdng you back.

    seriously, look at the link above and search the forum, there's loads of good info.

    Building your chest and upper body is nice but dont forget the legs. Remember every lb of LBM you gain you increase you Kcal needs by 17.

    For beginners i suggest you work your way into a simple 3 day split.

    day 1 Chest \tris
    day 2 Back\bis
    day 3 rest
    day 4 rest
    day 5 legs\abs maybe some deads again.
    day 6 off
    day 7 off.

    As suggested above read the stickies. Also find a post by toxic and take a look at his signature good advice.
