Muscle: The best and safest way to go is to visit your doc to make sure you are in good health enough to work out. Then see a fitness trainer at a gym so that he/she can draw up a work out routine for you. Generally speaking, protein can help w/building muscle but an overall healthy diet free from junk food, sugar, chemicals, etc. can help w/general health and well being. Peace and good health.

See personal trainer: My advice would be to seek the help of an experienced personal trainer. He/ she can design and help start you on a muscle strengthening program that is specific for you and targets muscle groups you want to work on initially. Also, a personal trainer can motivate you to get started and 'stay the course'.Start slow and gradually build up intensity/ frequency of workouts to avoid overuse injuries.GL

Building muscle for dancing. What is a good training workout routine?

Core body strength: Core body strength, such as pilates and yoga are considered to be key for dancing. Cross training to use all muscles and vary your workout will also prevent muscle burn out or overuse injuries. Remember to listen to your body and pay attention to proper nutrition and also take days off for recovery.
