    In my opinion you should focus on weight lifting and eating LOTS of food. HIIT maybe once a week. 6' 130# is significantly underweight. Try to get 9 solid hours of sleep per night and one or two off days each week. As far as eating goes: MACK DOWN! and enjoy it! Keep it primal, but eat to your desire and be sure to include a serving of fruit with each meal and starch or rice after your workout. You said that you always have an appetite. Listen to this and eat. Im 6'1 180# and I'm pretty damn skinny.

    As far as weight-lifting, try to do functional, explosive exercises in the ~5 rep ~4 set range. And keep your form in check. Supplement this with various stability and core exercises and you should see significant gains.

    Good Luck

    wow, thanks for the flood of responses guys, I didnt think I'd receive this much advice lol?


    I got another quick question, a couple of you are on here stating about how "im 6,0 6,1 and 150-170 and i'm considered/was considered very skinny" but if you look at the BMI charts, 72 in. and 6 foot and 140 pounds at the LEAST is considered healthy?? so what does that mean

    Top 10 Reasons Why The BMI Is Bogus : NPR

    Or just skip to this -- which is probably the best reason:
    But bone is denser than muscle and twice as dense as fat, so a person with strong bones, good muscle tone and low fat will have a high BMI.

    Christian Bale is blessed with great genetics, but this is him from "Batman Begins" and "The Machinist"
    He's listed as between 6' and 6'2" and weighed 120 pounds and 190 pounds in each role. I know using actors and athletes as examples is generally frowned upon, but this is a great example of what a thin, weak frame looks like versus a strong, healthy one.

    BMI is for the average couch potato population. If you work out and put on muscle in your case a lot of muscle then you will be overweight according to BMI but you will not be fat. If you just eat more without working out you will also be overweight according to BMI but you will probably be fat as well.
    % body fat is more important than BMI I am 6' down to 182lbs (still overweight according to BMI but 6 pack is showing because I have a lower % of fat (currently around 14%).

    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    lmao come on dude thats a horrible example in general. Of course the picture on the left is a weak frame, I mean look at the damn thing, that probably has some kind of special effects added in. That's not what a normal "skinny" guy looks like, but I get the point you are making.

    That is the exact same person. I picked him because its a great example of what 70 pounds of muscle looks like.

    You can go rent the movie; he looks sick and malnourished because he is. Essentially starved himself for six months for the role.
