    Hey I'm 6'3" and 170-175, so really I'm a skinny bish and need to fill up my frame.

    I want some free weights to have at home, really simple, just to get me started, and really just to do something. I don't care about weight loss, and hardly muscle gain, I just want to test the waters.

    I don't have a gym within easy reach, and really unless I get really into it i wouldn't want to go to one.

    Anyone have any reccomendations as to what I should get, like dumbells or bars and plates or what, I am clueless.

    If you need more info just ask

    thanks fellas

    Yep, I did

    the
    Working out at home
    section most applied to my question, although i was hoping for a bit more specific like actual sets you reccomend, or are there no differences, and just whatever is fine?

    In a room, although when it warms up I could go outside

    Your routine doesn't rely on your location. Pick a mass building routine, change your diet, get weights, get into it and get a gym membership.
