the best advice i can give you is to eat a lot of meat. Depending on what your maintanence calories are i would suggest adding 500-1000 calories/day, but dont just eat junk food eat a variety. Eat foods like pasta, rice, veggies, fruits, lean meats, oatmeal, etc. . Also what type of training are you doing. Heavy squats/deads are a very good way to add muscle mass. Im assuming your a freshman in high school, so creatine a good protein powder, and multivitamin would be all the supplements i would suggest. Diet is your best weapon to grow. As far as protein intake i would suggest getting in at least 160-200g/day.

how is your recovery time, is your body fully rested and ready for the next workout and not sore, or are you continuously sore. If thats the case a would suggest cutting back to 3days /week doing a 5X5 program. I did a 5X5 program couple of years ago and made great strength gains. I myself never did well with working out 5days/week.

Also, 5 days a week in the gym may not be conducive to getting the results you want (depending on WHAT you are doing), especially if you're doing other training on TOP of that. Remember that recovery is important, because it's WHEN your muscles adapt and grow. As for exercises: Powercleans, squats, deadlifts, bench press, pull-ups, etc. (i.e. multijoint, compund exercises) are the best exercises for growth. I would recommend 3 days a week (a day between each session for recovery). You could do many different types of programmes: A couple of suggestions are the 5x5 (already mentioned); of the 10x3 - Squats, deadlifts, and bench (all separate days, with a day between), as heavy as you can each set (and in between a couple of LIGHTER days of other exercises).

I secound what all the above.. But I also want to say @ 15 years old you should not be lefting iron your body is not ready fro all that stress. My option is that you should do alot of push pull ups dips etc... If you need to get an xvest to add to your body weight just my option and I know alot of doc would same the same

weight bearing exercise will load his bones and force them to absorb more calcium and strengthen them along with increasing joint integrity
there is no reason why he shouldnt be lifting weights unless he has completely improper form or is ego lifting but no matter your age both of those are problematic, he is playin football so hopefully his coaches can show him anything he has questions about, and hes got the forums help as well
why not throw around some weight?

you are still growing that means you bones tissues and everything else. from other thing that have been reading and from my cuz that plays in the NBA and talking to his trainer last year he states young men should not grab iron unless he is @ 17 @ that time most boys have hit maturity. 15 year old young man how many pull ups can you do? pushup? this my option only... NSCA test is hard as hell note
