For starts bro:

Eat massive amounts of food.
Lift heavy.
Focus on compound lifts.
Read.

Too much to say, so my best advice would to read as much as you can on diets, workout regimens, supplements and so on.

Good luck with your goal! And welcome to mecca.

You should have posted in the training section, so expect a mod to move it there soon.

1) Eat more. People generally need to have a caloric surplus to put on muscle (I know, there are all sorts of variables and it is easier for beginners). If you think you're already eating a lot, chances are you're not. Of course, you have to be eating the right kind of food as well.
2) Get a solid routine. There are all kinds out there, so you have to do some research, decide on one, and then we can help you with specifics. For a beginner like yourself, a good full body routine can work wonders.
3) RESEARCH- can't stress that enough.

The secret to good abs and big arms is to train the rest of your body. Do heavy squats even if you don't care what your legs look like. I don't want you to make the mistake I see countless high school kids doing- they hit the gym and only do bench press and curls.

It's hard to really help you when you haven't asked anything specific, so my main advice is to focus on the compound exercises (deadlifts, squats, benchpress, etc.) and eat a ton of good food.

way to hijack he thread guys :keke:

SANDMAN: As far as eating goes, eat a lot of whole protein sources like red meat, chicken, fish, turkey etc. Carbohydrates eat a lot of Brown rice, whole wheat bread, sweet potato and plenty of vegetables. Fats, usually if you're eating enough red meat and fish you will get decent fats from there, but to ensure you get the right fatty acids, add some canola oil, olive oil, or flax seed oil to get good fats. Also eat nuts and oily fish.

With your training man, train your entire body. Like Arcane said, even if you dont care what your legs look like, train them also... it can have a huge impact on how fast your upper body develops (which i assume is what you want to train) and you will also have a more balanced physique if you train your legs also.

BTW let us know what you're eating and what your training schedule looks like :xyxthumbs:

eat a lot of whole foods and protein.
chicken, steak, fish, and a lot of brown rice, whole wheat foods, oatmeal.
i would just read through the training section here and find a basic routine to start off with, possibly a full body routine.
basically just keep reading the threads here and everywhere you can, stay consistent with the training and keep eating heavy.
glad to see another face around here:tiphat:

Make friends/peace with these exercises:
Squats
Deadlifts
Bench Press
Rows
Pullups

Don't spend excessive amounts of time on these:
curls

Don't even touch these:
leg extensions

Maybe try Rippetoe's Starting Strength routine: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=712752

...or at least something similar.
