"4)Do I really need to get serious about diet (17 years old)I eat junk all the time..."

Diet is HUGE. Probably between 40-60% in terms of overall importance. The rest obviously being physical activity.

1)Take a look at these http://www.mensfitness.com/fitness/ab_exercises/
2)Maybe your not lifting heavy enough or like you mentioned your diet is poor so if you havent got the sufficient amount of protein in your body your muscles wont grow very well.
3)In my experiance running is the best cardio workout, but give them all a try an see which is best for you.
4)Yes like mentioned above diet is crutial!.
5)When i am running i play music with a fast pace an beat to get into a rhythm. And while weight training i listen to slower paced music again also to help me get into a rhythm.

like MMAPassion mentioned, pushups will tone... so you can do pushups everyday... but if you want to build mass, you gotta tear those muscle fibres so that they can rebuild. Bench really heavy weight that you can barely edge out a few reps to tear those pec fibres... and down the protein to help your body with repair.

Help please.. :thumbsup:

1. Squats keeping your core tight or decline crunches
2. Look up a strength program. Strength correlates to mass in most cases.
3. Swimming
4. Diet reveals the hard work you do lifting. If you ever want to have your 'ideal' body then yes, diet.
5. The Offspring, Disturbed, Sick Puppies

Yep, the most recent 'screamy' stuff is awesome on so many levels. Finally good to see them come out with some angry music for once. :thumb02:
