Do weight-training such as lifting free weights or using weight machines at the gym or at home. Choose a basic strength-training program with exercises targeting the chest, back, shoulders, arms, abdominals, and legs. Perform each exercise with no more than 30 seconds of rest in between, and once you complete a cycle, rest for 1 to 2 minutes and then do it again. For best results, train with the ideal number of reps and sets per workout and get enough rest in-between workout days. If you can afford a personal trainer, it helps with your technique and training schedule. Read about how to build muscle from the Guide to Exercise at About.com.
