Have you ever lifted before ? You need to learn the proper techniques so you don't hurt yourself. There are easy exercises like the bicep curl and then very difficult exercises that can lead to long term damage if not done correctly like the dead lift. I suggest you work out with free weights if you want to gain muscle.

A person cannot go against nature, one must sleep at night :)
A broken mode often does not benefit. Only in a dream is a muscle recovery and a reboot of the nervous system.


Sleep well and when you get enough sleep, beat the enemy hard :)

This is the first time that I've heard of a gastric bypass which I think is related to the intestine. It's good that you have the goal to build muscles but I suggest that you should have a clearance from your doctor. Better yet get a workout guidance from him because a workout may go against the health of your surgery. I understand that it was already 2 years ago but I just want to play it safe. However you can do light workouts for the moment until you get the feel of doing regular workout for your muscles.

I would like to recommend getting some gym classes in order to have the opportunity of being helped by the gym instructor in order to avoid making any mistakes that might cause any long term or short term injuries for you.

There is no harm in asking for help.

When it comes to building muscles, it is always important that we realize that we are going to put in the work to achieve massive results at the end of the day. You can't really be scared of getting injured while training as you won't have rapid success, if there's no pain attached. When I started training, I experienced some pains in the first week, but that didn't make me quit and now, I am happy for the progress that I've made.

This is absolute true that you have just mentioned here to new beginner in working out or bodybuilding. The first week into one's involvement in working out is the most difficult and challenging week because it's the week one actually quits the workout or continue to do it for a long time. The body will be ridden with pains in every part of the body including the joints which makes it a very painful experience. I had my first week challenge and I almost nearly quit because of abdominal pains but I persisted and got through it.
