Our expert says:
I think that given your relatively young age, the first thing you need is a specific goal. You've identified building muscle and gaining weight as a goal - next question is whether there is a more specific goal than that - is there a sport you do that might need to match your training, for example?
Once you have that, then I think that your best bet is to chat with the guys in the gym, for a couple of reasons. One is that they can actually show you the technique and give you some hands-on advice - if I said to do "good mornings", would you know the exercise? That's why a guy right there to help is the best.
Second, the person who starts you out is going to be the best person to advise you later on, and that means he would ideally be there to monitor your programme. I couldn't do either, so I'd say you're better off talking with the gym trainers and having them help you!
