whoa, we are way too close in height and weight, but i'd say im toned except for this **** tummy...
there really is no time-line for muscle building, sorry =/
BUT you should see results in 4-6 weeks if your doing it properly. here are some guidelines
-drink TONS of water, your body needs to keep hydrated in order to function at its max
-eat lots of protein, i know you learn breads are on the bottom of the food pyramid, but if your muscle building then protein supplements and lean meats are your staple
- what is your goal? are you wanting the "bulk up with muscle" or "lean muscle"? cause they really are quite different. if ur looking for mass, then heavier weights at a high intensity. if ur looking for thin muscle, then moderate weights in high reps
-do cardio, it works out your legs, but also helps your core, posture, and burns calories infinitely quicker than other exercises translates into faster fat loss
