Hi, I've decided to change my lifestyle. I quit playing video games and being lazy. I started a healthy diet and signed for a gym. Basically my question is. I have weak muscles and I'm 30 years old. Is it possible to grow some decent muscles at my age if I'm dedicated and follow a good diet and exercises?

Stay dedicated and your life will become much better brother - the weights always give you a reason to stay dedicated.

Agreed with everything everyone else has said. Moreover, look on the bright side. You will be actually getting stronger, losing weight and looking more athletic when most people in their thirties are sliding inexorably towards an out-of-shape existence.

Its true, sometimes you see guys on the treadmill who run forever and still look shit and never get leaner, weight lifting gets you pumping the musacles up and making the food you eat work.

I have a co-worker that is going with me most of the time but he's a rookie like me. But my cousin has been going to the gym for a few years and he calls me every day to check what I do and give me tips, plus I'm always trying to learn and get info online.

Welcome to the new life. Learning is a great thing. Take in everything that you can, and slowly tailor it as you find what works best for you. You know your body best. Good luck growing.

Keep reading and learning, not only do you learn new things but it keeps you motivated. Most of us wish we had started earlier but for me it has just been more motivation to stay on the ball with my diet. Plus, now that youre older your life is probably more stable and it will be easier to stay consistent

There is nothing wrong with you change rather its really appreciative. Just
keep it up. To stay and keep fit, just be regular in cardio exercises and
drink a plenty of water. Along with that avoid from junk food.
