    I'll list off the things that are probably needed, well, I am 16 years old, I'm 5'10 in height, I weigh 137 pounds. I have never worked out before, so I pretty much lift dumbbells horribly - about 20 pounds. I have a pull-up bar which is able to attach to my door, so I use that often now.

    I'll go from that, but my question is, how can I increase body mass, build my body muscles, and keep fit?

    I'll start from that.

    Well man, sign yourself up at a gym firstly, trust me its better than working out at home even if you have the equipment at home its still better to work out at a gym, secondly you gonna want to start eating more, eat high protein calorie dense food, as long as its healthy food not junkfood, do some research your going to want to look up people who are the same as you and what they did to get big, you can find out alot of neat tricks this way, you will also want to concerntrate on compound movements, things like squats, deadlifts, benchpress etc, they are all mass gaining movements, but most of all ask alot of questions, your going to need to learn a fair bit about building muscle if you want to be successful.

    I hope this basic rundown helps.

    Yeah, what sp00ks said. Doing Cardio when trying to get bigger isn't really a smart thing to do. You want to gain weight, not lose it.

    although if you are planning on gaining A LOT of weight, cardio once a week or so is good to help your body adjust to the weight gain, just for the cardiovascular benefits

    running after every exercise gets some of that lactic acid build up out of the muscles

    aka the next day you don't feel so damn sore and you can lift more, therefore gaining a lot more muscle over time then those who don't

    While you are correct, it's good to do cardio to get your heart going and it keeps your body at a better level making other exercise more beneficial. I should have been more specific, cardio in conjunction with lifting, etc. makes for better fitness (not just cardio alone).

    Get outta 'ere.

    Edited:

    I'm pretty much the same as you OP, I got a set of dumb bells, a pull up bar that I use sometimes. I don't know about you, but I play drums, and that can help to increase muscle in your upper arms, and forearm, or whatever it's damn called.
