    Teenage Bodybuilding, Advice?


    I am currently a freshman, and I have been rigorously bodybuilding for around 4 months now. I have gained over 16 pounds of muscle mass, I am 5'9" and 142 pounds. I am an ectomorph, and I am currently using two whey proteins, a non-creatine pre-workout, and a carb-supplement. My shoulders, arms, and back have made obvious and dramatic gains, but my chest has still remained relatively small. I train legs and have a great lower body, but I was wondering if anybody could give me some tips or routines on how I can make larger gains. I am a solo natural bodybuilder noob, so I would very much appreciate some help or advice!

    Yes, this is a great program that I still use to this day and continue to see results with the different rep-ranges and tempos that are involved in PRRS.

    These guys are steering you right. Power Rep Range Shock. Buy the DVD too ;-) lol.

    And listen to Luke_PNI I knew this young man as a portly 7th grader (He was a student of mine when I student taught). Then I had the pleasure of coaching him in baseball when he was in high school. The boy grew into a young man and the chubby little guy is now YOKED! He knows a thing or (thousands) about how to transform a physique!

    Good job on actually doing legs, when I was in high school all the "jacked" kids that werent football players NEVER did legs. I know a kid thats done 2 cycles of ultradrol and squats 85 lbs cause he neglected legs. Keep doing compounds, keep your form good, eat well, and you'll make progress. Also, use the knowledge on this site to your advantage. I started "lifting" when I was about 16, but I wasted my time. I made no significant progress till I was 18 and realized the importance of compound lifts.

    You really do need to focus on the "main lifts". Squats, deads, pull-ups, bench, shoulder press or push press. The other stuf will come. Multi joint lifts are where it's at. It's easy to focus on chest and arms because most enjoy training them and when you train them hard and neglect the others, you do see some initial results because those movements don't tax the body systems as much and you recover fast. However, training the basic compound lifts will make you stronger in multiple pathways and lead to a much greater and balanced physique.

    id just go with stronglifts 5x5. nothin sexier to the bitches than big ass squatting legs that make the football players look like bitches. and youll develop incredible entire body strength as a base for future hypertrophy training. im talkin about deads, bench pressing, overhead pressing, barbell rows, and squats all going up in one routine. you will destroy the football players and wrestlers in pure strength if you follow a good routine like that

    If you are just starting resistance training or bodybuilding, those first few workouts will leave target muscles absolutely fatigued. You will walk funny, perform everyday actions gingerly, and feel pain with the slightest of movements. This is good, however, as it is a signal that you are well on your way to making gains. You want to be able to experience this 'good' pain (although not to the same extreme as when you first started) after every session, so I am a big proponent of varying workouts and diverse training techniques. The human body is naturally inclined to acclimate and adapt in order to avoid stress.

    Your natural testosterone levels are very high at your age so dont worry too much about supplements, its more just about consistency. Continue to train hard and push yourself, and be religiously consistent with your eating....this is what actually makes you big. At your weight missing meals is of more consequence than missing a workout. Eat as much as possible, having a high metabolism will ensure that any weight you put on will look good, just train hard and stuff your face.
