    I have looked, and I can't find something SIMPLE for my friend Kareem. He was a waiter at my cafe in Goa. His father is a police inspector. His best opportunities for his career is to follow his father's footsteps. One problem: Kareem is scrawny. Too scrawny for academy regulations in Hyderabad. I told him I would send him a weight gain guide... I tried to tell him to lift weights and eat ice cream, etc. but it didn't really sink in.

    He needs a SIMPLE guide. THAT is what I can't find. His English is not the best. His Hindi and (whatever they speak in Andre Pradech) are great, but he needs something short and to the point in English.

    Anyone? I'd like to help him out. He was really nice. He just needs to gain and hold about 15 pounds to get into the academy. Not too hard, if he has the right information.

    Thanks in advance,
    P

    Simple???

    1. Eat
    2. Lift
    3. Eat

    Really that is all. He needs to eat more than maintenance, not just eat.

    Yeah guys... how do you explain what a "compound exercise" is to someone that doesn't speak much english? Nobody has a link, huh?

    :(

    how about those internet gifs of squats deads etc? Maybe that can help him. Also have him lots of starchy carbs like rice an potato. It will put the weight on

    He speaks english. But:

    "Bench presses and other compound movements will bring about hormonal changes that will result in the accumulation of lean mass." is gonna be lost on him.

    Know what i mean?

    He needs to be told what to eat, what exercises to do, how to do them, etc. Arnold's book, condensed. Yes. I guess thats not out there?

    I see no reason why a beginner needs to know such advanced physiological functions.

    Just tell him exercises that use the whole body work better. And it is crucial to eat a lot to grow muscles and get stronger.

    Pretty straight forward IMO.
