I want to gain weight ..my physique is not well that's why I want to join gym but first I have to gain ..

Several points.: cannot say in your particular case, but losing weight, being quite thin, low muscle can mean a illness is present and a physical exam would be in order, maybe simple lab work. Then, enough calories and protein in. and enough exercise. Oddly enough, this does not take a lot of time. 1) finding your maximal strength, 2) using 80-90% percent of that 3) 8 to 12 reps, 8, 5. 4) takes 2 to 4 wk to see ...Read more

I don't want to lose weight as I am underweight. Been skipping, can it helps to lose belly fat eventually?

Yes: All forms exercise can help you eventually lose belly fat, however if you are underwt I can't imagine that you have much belly fat!

It's skin! Just follow a sensible balanced diet and exercise! :) ...Read more
