    As above, get reading through the articles section then post your diet along with your goals.........personally I would recommend a Full body workout or Push/Pull/Legs routine for a beginner as you should be using as many of the big compound lifts as possible to build an solid overall strength base on which you should make some solid gains......At the end of the day though its you doing the routine week after week so pick a routine that holds your interest as longevity will yeild the best results.

    thanks for your comments. i have looked at a few lads on here and what they eat and the way they train. i am like a rake and a couple of months ago i noticed i was getting bit of a belly. i just thought it was the beer haha. i used to eat anything mcdonalds, crisps, cakes etc. as i was skinny i thought i could get away with it and eat anything but my day off was today so i thought what better day than today to change what i am eating so i woke up and had a bowl of cereal and a glass of orange juice. around 10am i had 2 wholmemeal toast beans and 2 poached eggs. lunch time i had 200g cottage cheese 180g tuna and beans. tea i had 214g tuna steak 2 sweet potato and beans again. i am joining my local gym on friday as soon as i get paid. i currently weigh around 12 stone i would like to put on another 2-3 stone. should i be using a protein shake to give me more or should i just eat to start with?
    i am very determined now to change in the way i look and in the foods that i eat.what kind of training should i be doing when i go to the gym on friday?

    Your diet will determine your weight gains so get it posted and take the advice your given and you,ll start to increase your weight..........A whey protein/massgainer if your wanting to bulk will be a worthwhile investment.........As for a workout get reading the post where the members have posted their routines......ideally you should be including big compound lifts such as Squats, Deadlifts, Chin-ups, Bench-press, Rows etc and lift as heavy as you can for 6-8 reps and you should make some good progress.

    ok, i usually wake up 4am and have a bowl of weetabix normally 2-3. and a banana while on the way to work. then i dont have anything till break time (10am) which is 2 toast poached eggs and beans/tomatoes.i hen dont eat anything until 1pm which would be a tuna/chicken/ham sandwich.my tea would usually be some kind of meal. spag bol, beef dinner,fajietas. something along those lines but always if i am hungry inbetween i would just pick a bag of crisps up or a few biscuits.for supper i usally have either cereal or 4 slices of toast and butter. although from yesterday i had 4 weetabix and banana  at breakfast. as a snack i had some brazil nuts. break time 2 poached beans and 2 toast. finished of the last of the brazil nuts i had on me till i got home and had tuna pasta.i didnt have anything then until tea which was beef caserole.  yesterday i bought my first protein shake and it has just arrived now and i had my first ever one. bit sickly maybe im just not used to. it.http://www.myprotein.com/uk/products/true_whey

    Mate you,ll get a better response if you post up your diet in the Diet and Nutrition section and try and format your post a bit clearer e.g
     
          - 7am  - Breakfast
          -10am - Snack
     
    Include weights and portions of all your foods and shakes.....at first glance your not eating nearly enough and your choice of foods could be better, you need more protein and healthy fats in your diet......get it posted and the more knowledgable members will help you out.

    I'd seriously recommend a read around the articles section: http://articles.muscletalk.co.uk/ - then ask in the relevant forums (diet, bodybuilding routines) for each question you will get a much better response!
