I'm underweight, never exercise, eat like shit, etc etc

But now that I'm getting older I'd like to do something about it and slowly get into fitness

I don't want to take it seriously, I'd like to ease into it.

I'd rather start with home exercises that join a gym straight away so I can do everything at my own pace.

I was just hoping for some recommendations from you guys

What equipment should I buy?
What exercises should I do?
Any good resources? (prefer video to text)

And what should I eat?

I guess mostly I'd like to know what kind of healthy food I can prepare at home, refrigerate and then take into work the next day?
(I have a microwave in the office, no stove/oven)

Once I ease into it I'd then like to join a gym and maybe start swimming on the weekends
But I like to take everything gradually

Buy a few dumbells starting at 5lbs and moving up to 20lbs. Get a pack of protein powder and make a protein shake for your breakfast. After than get a 20 minute cardio going by going for a walk or jog is you prefer. After you do that get some water and start some stretches and bodyweight squats for 7x3. Now that you have warmed up grab the five lbs dumbells and hold them to your sides then slowly bring them up keeping your arms straight. Do this for 10x3. After that. Sit for a sec. After thats done grab the 10lbs dumbells or if they feel too heavy the 5 lbs dumbells hold them and start doing some bicep curls. Again do it for 10x3. Once you are done, take another rest. Once you feel ready grab the 20 lbs dumbells and start shrugging, this will hit the muscles around your shoulders and neck. Once again hit for 10x3 then rest. Now lets hit some legs and then core. Grab those 20 lbs dumbells again. Stand normally with the dumbells by your side, do a few lunges forward and back. 10X3 and rest. Next lay down and wedge your feet under something like a couch or chair, start doing situps. Most people have trouble with these so only 7x3 or 5x3. Sit and rest for a bit, get some water or something to drink. These are a few small starter exercises, after a while of doing it you will want to go to the gym.

So you guys know I tend to have my hands at shoulder width for bench, and the guy spotting me suggested I go further for my bench the other day, and i hit 120 for 2 for the first time. My cousin watched and said he didn't see the guy putting in any effort other than being there with the bar so I'm pretty happy with that coming from just widening my grip.

Hey guys, does taking flax seed oil have any benefit over taking fish oil tablets? some of my friends tell me that flax seed is much better but i have no idea.
#48021 to #48019 - marinepenguin

Flax seed and fish oil both contain Omega 3 fatty acids, which is the biggest health benefit to taking them. But Flax seed only contains one of the 3 kinds of Omega 3 acids and in much smaller quantities. A decent fish oil pill would maybe have 10 times the Omega 3s as flax seed and also has all the vital Omega 3 variations.

Jumping back into things this week. I had a couple brief sessions since the meet, but things kick back into gear on monday.

I've spent the last year experimenting with different training protocols, and on Monday, I'm starting on what I know works best...

My goal is to make people think I got on gear.

So I've decided to have one last go at the guessing game before taking a break and doing a more already out challenge. maybe M/W/F

This user, represented by the bug-eye Subaru WRX/STi took the scene when introduced, even with its odd facial styling that no one can figure out, has a cult like following. It's versatile in that it has 4 doors and AWD allowing it to be able to partake in just about anything a larger car might do, but has enough power and superior handling to a lot of muscle cars that go for pure speed. This car can do a little of everything and definitely attracts bros.

So guys, I need a bit of help.
My dreams of actually becoming a legit fitizen are being jeopardized by the people I live with, I.E. My parents.
Whenever I try to buy healthier things into the house like chicken breasts or sweet potatoes etc, then they either use it for some chicken korma shit or start yapping about how I'm always eating carrot food or whatever.
I'm 20 years old,1.75m, 96kg and I've got pretty decent stats in the gym but I want to become slimmer and I know it's simply calories in and out, however, whenever I try to make my own dinner or lunch or just something to grab along, then my food which I've bought has either been eaten or thrown out because and I quote.
"It was starting to smell"-Made the night before.
My parents aren't the healthiest either with my mom being a serious offender, she talks about wanting to get healthy and shit but she doesn't want to count calories or cook better food, she's just too goddamn lazy.
Including the fact that there's always candy in the house, nothing healthy and everything's pretty goddamn shit including my mother's cooking which incredibly calorie dense.
So I've got a couple of questions FJ.

How do I fix this? Like, how do I continue with my fitness goals with such an unsupportive family unit? I can't move out because I'm in the uni and rent is way too high here because of the high influx of tourists (no joke, airbnb has basically demolished the rental market and is creating a housing bubble.)

Been doing a strong lifts program with cardio on top, getting bored of it, any suggestions?

Have a nice day and I appreciate any answers.
Seb.

P.s. When I confront them about this , she just either starts crying or screaming at me for being a piece of shit.

get your own fridge, you can find small one's real cheap sometimes but you want something to keep whatever you're eating in it

as for what to do about your parents have you tried cooking for them? at least to show her that healthy food =/= bland tasting garbage. she'd probably be inclined to try it herself

Kill them. Live off their life insurance and inherit their stuff.

Eat as you please.

But honestly when people do this is has more to do with their own inability to do it. You said your mom wants to get fit, but doesn't. So she sees you getting fit and it lowers her self esteem because you're accomplishing what she hasn't. So being the selfish creature that most humans tend to be, instead of pushing herself a little harder and doing it with you, it's easier to try and pull you back down. People will even do this subconsciously, so she may not exactly know why she's doing it herself, people are irrational.

I'd invest Inna cooler or small fridge for your room. Prep meals and store them in there the night or two before.

You aren't overtraining. Your body either isn't used to the activity and has yet to adapt to it, or you aren't getting enough food or sleeping enough.

Muscle soreness isn't always a sign of a good workout. After nearly 3 years of working out I rarely get more than a little sore after most workouts, unless I make a point to have a hard workout.
