i was a 119 pound HS freshman, and am a hair under 230 now. I have abs,not Men's health abs, but they all show. You ask a question that has a 26 volume collection for an answer, but what you need to do, to simplify is this:

Squats if you aren't a runner. Running and squatting doesn't work.

Deads no matter what. Bench Press. Chins. Mil Press or Close grip BP.

Start off with 5x5. Start at an easy weight and work up until it stops gets too heavy. Do squats and or deads twice a week, and BP, MP or close grip, and chins twice a week. 5x5. Stronger is bigger and bigger is stronger. Eat some food! You can avoid excess animal fat by eating meat in 4-5 ounce servings. Cut off the fat. Drink skim or 1% milk. Eat lots of raw and fresh veggies and fruits. Some carbs won't kill a skinny guy like you. Be regular and commit to this process. In a few months we will add some more exercises. Make sure you get some sleep!
