Done in the right form, absolutely. It is, however, possible to do training that has little or no influence on muscle mass due to the makeup of muscle.

Strength training with lower rep ranges (1-5 repetitions per set) and bodybuilding style hypertrophy training, which tends to have rep ranges of between 8-20, certainly can increase muscle mass either through one of two potential mechanisms of growth.

Longer duration or repetition endurance work, due to the nature of the slower twitch muscle fibers which do not have the same propensity for growth as those used in heavier weight work, does not cause the same increase in mass.

It is possible. If you are preforming a slow diet plan, you can gain some muscle mass. The only why to gain mass on a regular basis is to increase your calories. Yet weight training will help preserve muscle and could even slowly add some mass.

yes, if you are exercising to loose weight. The more muscle you make the higher the mass will be.

The muscle atrophies and decreases in mass and strength if training is discontinued.

No that is impossible. You cannot gain muscle mass without ever gaining weight.

Yes. Here is why: an effective program of weight training (including proper nutrition and rest) will increase your amount of muscle mass.

Yes, you are old enough to do weight training and increase your muscle mass. It is very important when you are starting out to get proper instruction in exercise technique. If you do not know exactly how to do an exercise, you may hurt yourself and retard your training.Just as two runners with the same training may run at different speeds during a race, so two strength athletes with the same training may have different results. It does not matter if you put on muscle slowly or quickly. If you train properly, keep training, eat well, and avoid overtraining, you will increase your muscle mass and get stronger and bigger.Stick to the basic exercises (namely, squats, deadlifts, presses, rows, dips, and chins) and their variations. Until you really master perfect exercise technique, choose to use a weight that will permit you to get at least 5 reps.
