Is it normal that i'm quite underweight and i want to be a bodybuilder?
I'm a woman, 5'6 and 97 lbs. Having a lean physique is important to me, but being emaciated obviously has downsides. Could I build muscle without gaining a significant amount of fat? Also, the only time in the past I have lifted was on a track team, and I struggled with the dumbbells. I had to lift the bar instead without any dumbbells which was only about 40lbs. I assume I can improve with repetition right? Another thing is that I haven't stepped foot in a gym in years and I don't know what gym culture is like, if I would be mocked or anything. Thanks
