    Need to gain more muscle


    I have been working out for a while and have gained 25 pounds but I need to gain more muscle. I was thinking of different prohormones but I am only 16 and don't want to screw up my body. What are safer supplements that I can take to gain muscle. Not basics like protein and food. I eat pleanty

    sometimes mixing it up a bit helps with gains after doing the same thing time after time your body adapts! how many calories are you taking in? protien intake all that

    try DC training awesome stuff to get some mass on you. it is a bit complex though

    as for supplements basics is prolly best: creatine (try different kinds MCC, hcl, etc), leucine greatly improves protein synthesis according to studies, beta alanine very good for strength, maybe some arginine, citruline malate, alpha lipoic acid before meals, Uni liver is awesome to get some muscle there is a reason why its called the old school supplement.
    The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.

    Probably not what you want to hear, but the basics are the basics for a reason. Add some creatine in there with the protein and work on building a great foundation for later in life. I wish I started lifting at 16! If in ten years you want to go the PH route, then you'll know full well if it is right for you.

    If you need a PH in 10 years you've
    definitely gone wrong somewhere.

    What you need:

    - a coach / mentor who can guide you
    - food and lots of it
    - creatine (might not even need this depending on your diet)
    - sleep

    That's it, dude. Get someone to help guide your training and you'll throw on muscle over time at a great rate.

    More food. At your age you should be able to gain 1/4-1/2 lb a week easily till you hit over 200 lbs with nothing but food and exercise. No supplements are going to add anything significant to the gains at your age.

    Look up DC (ive personally never done it)
    Look up 5/3/1 (i love this style)

    Follow some diet tips from Jim Wendler (i use these too)
    Eat a protein source at each meal
    Eat a fruit or veggie at each meal
    Eat a carbohydrate at each meal
    Eat min of 4 meals perday
    If wanting to gain, add a gallon of whole milk to your daily diet

    Supps:
    Multi
    Protein
    Creatine
    Fish Oil
    Beta-alanine
    BCAA

    And don't forget to have fun! It's great to start young and be disciplined, but having the metabolism of a 16 year old means you don't have to always be so strict.
