I just want to get good information so that I can communicate it to him. Come on now... He is 15 years old, he doesn't do anything he doesn't want to do.


  2. Then listen to an ex college football player. Get him bulk creatine and muscle milk and be done with it... Add one scoop of creatine to two scoops of muscle milk post lift.

  3. I started my son lifting at 14 and never let him lift heavy till he was 16. I just keep it at food form. No supps whatsever, by the time he as 18 he was 6'2" 270 and running a 4.9 40. Spuatting close to 600 and deading in the mid 500's. You do not need supplements for teens.. you just need a good healthy diet. No heavy lifting till there 16 as you can do a lot of damage with the bones being still failrly soft. They will take off when there 16 cuz you have taught them perfect form.

    I was almost the same stats as him when I was 18. 6'1 and 274. That's a big boy right there! Kudos!

    I am a football dad myself three boys three middle linebackers. The boys all love the sport, but it our responsiblitity as parents to make sure they are doing the right thing with there bodies. The thread has provided some great info for your son, protein,bcaa's creatine(lots of water),clean diet, and lots of sleep. Stay away from the weight gainers. My son has averaged 25lbs a years for the past two years by keeping it simple. He is 6' 195lb 4.7 mlb From a weightlifting perspection form, form , form. Proper technique will develope mass, compound movements squats, bench press, deadlifts.

    Yes Sir, I agree as parents it is our responsiblitity as parents to make sure they are doing the right thing with there bodies. That is why I'm on here to get more information. I appreciate your feed back... Thank you!!!

  8. Basketball is always an option. 6'1 now. 6'6 by the time he's a senior. No crazy people telling you crazy stuff. If he thinks he needs to gain weight eat, eat, and don't forget to eat but eat clean. Protein is número uno. He's working out too much. Hit the weights 3 to 4 days a week. Lessen, not avoid, the cardio to avoid burning all the calories. Lift big to get big. No high reps for muscle endurance. 8 reps per set max.

  9. I used creatine monohydrate when I was 16.. I turned out alright lol. A lot of food, lifting, and then if you need to add another supplement I don't think there is anything wrong with creatine at that age as long as he stays hydrated and his coaches let him drink water when he needs it.

  10. Also, something I have been doing since I was 16 for a cheap weight gainer is to get a small blender, mix 1.5 cups milk, 1 cup oats, and 1-1.5 scoops whey in the shake. You can add other food items as well. Easy 700+ calories you can drink in 5 minutes. I would stay away from the maltodextrin filled weightgainers and stick to home made shakes.

  11. try vitamin a, at doses of between 50,000 and 80,000 IU/day. (most drugstore versions of vitamin a are only 8000 IU per softgel, so this is going to amount to about 7-10 softgels per day.) most people are way underdosed on vitamin a, and boosting it to those levels can have drastic effects on energy levels throughout the day.
    also, you should have him take a sublingual vitamin b-12 tablet, preferably 5000mcg if your drugstore carries that dosage. don't just use a “b complex” vitamin, as those tend to have basically negligible amounts of b12.

    honestly, if you can get vitamin a and vitamin b12 to the right levels, your son may find that those two alone give him better (and longer-lasting) energy than pre-workout supplements.

    in regard to the pre-workout supplements: your son should be EXTREMELY aware of the potential for dependency, both psychological and physiological, on those things.
    don't forget hydration, either; a lot of people don't drink enough fluids (or don't drink enough water, relative to fluids that are not water -- in general, you should try to drink 2-3 glasses of water for every 1 glass of a drink that is not water.) that may also be making a difference.
    especially if these guys are practicing in full pads, the effects of dehydration from practice can last for hours if your son doesn't chug the water like crazy.

  12. also, another consideration is that he may not be getting enough dietary fat. you've mentioned the large number of LEAN sources of protein that he eats -- which, ironically, may be part of the problem in the first place (well, if there's actually anything that can really be called a problem here).
    remember that all of the body's natural steroid hormones (including testosterone and all the other androgens, whose quantity and circulation at your son's current age are laying the foundation for the rest of his life) are derived from FAT sources, including cholesterol. if your son's diet is too low in fat and cholesterol at this age, he may not fill out as much as with higher levels -- super important, as the effects of those things in the first couple of years post-puberty are irreversible to a certain degree.

    you also didn't mention carbohydrates. does your son have an adequate carbohydrate intake for a high-school athlete? the boy is going to need a LOT of carbs, especially once you get into 2-a-day season.

  13. ^this. Solid advice.
    To little fat can cause hormonal shutdown. Been there.

    Also, full fat milk is the healthiest and raw milk, if you can get it, is even better (and the taste is superior). Stay away from Ultra Heat Treated

  16. doesn't anyone else find the OP a bit odd?? She allows her "Son" to take Jacked 3d and wants her son to gain muscle but doesn't allow him to go online and research these things on his own. I don't know about the rest of you parents but my 13yr old knows more about the internet than me. Seems to me the Mom is the 15yrold and is only using it in a ruse.

    I can see where she is coming from. She really is not doing anything horrible she is trying to get advice on how to let her son succeed in football so he can get a scholarship to college. If it were a 15 yr old it would be much easier to come on here and say "hey guys Im 18 play football what supplements can help me?".

  18. true..just felt it to be odd...maybe it's legit and i'm over reacting a bit.just my opinion

    ...Or start one of the "i used havoc ...my balls shrunk... Help me" threads...

    It's actually very admirable that she is looking for advice for what is best for him where many parents would don't give a damn and/or stick with some ill diet guidelines from the 50's.

    He should eat beef first and then chicken breasts as best meats. These supply creatine through food sources, and most other meats and eggs do not. Beef also adds some other muscle growth factors. If he likes onions have him eat lots of those lightly cooked on his steak or beefburgers. Also extra virgin coconut oil for cooking and eating will make a difference. The onions and coconut oil are not test boosters, but they are foods that set a great foundation for high natural test. Find out which foods are high in zinc, selenium, magnesium, and natural sources of vitamin E. Keeping magnesium up to snuff helps the complete hormone cascade to lay the foundations for DHEA and test, although he should be okay with these anyway.

    The one supplement I might advise for a 15 year old is fish oil, but not massive doses. It's an anti-inflammatory, which is not necessarily good for muscle growth as inflammation response is a part of muscle growth. Yet fish oil has some ability to free up bound testosterone, and it's great for motivation and attitude.

    Oh yeah, dump the pre-wokout stims.

    Actually he does go online and he does research on all types of supplements but I want to know myself because as in jake3d he only tells me what he wants me to know.
