    Taking Little Bro To Gym


    He is 16 years old, and is endomorphic. Not overweight, but has the body type to be an easy gainer. What exercises should i recommend to him?

    just the basics, chest -bench press, legs -squats; back deadlifts
    Dont push him , let him get used to the equipment , concentrate on form rather than weight even if means getting the technique right just using a barbell. One thing you dont want , is injury
    When he feels comfortable with getting the technique right , then you can build up the weight.Remember that just cos you like training , the gym might not be suitable for him and prefer a different sport.

    I just say MAKE him do squats with you carefully watching his form. 5 sets of 10 with the bar or with 135 or w/e the case may be...but you want him to be squatting big if hes any kind of athlete. Bench for sure, power cleans are great, push press or military press. Deads are good but I won't lie I go months without doing them cuz I can't get my back too cooperate with them...they're tough.

    I would do something like this with 3 sets of 10,8,6 on most except the first couple u might go 4 or 5

    Mon:
    Bench
    Squat
    Incline Dumbell Bench
    Military Press
    Skullcrushers (maybe)
    Dips


    Tues:
    Power Cleans
    Pullups
    Bent Over Rows/Row machine
    Crunches
    Barbell Curls
    Calf Raises
    lateral raises (each direction, low weight, good form) these really help build stabilizers for bench in beginners

    Wednesday off and thurs fri repeat

    That's similar to our high school lifting program when we came in as freshman so take that for what it's worth

    Try out the 5x5 routine since hes new it would be better for him to progressively load more weight so his tendons/ligs/muscles all adapt to more weight being added each time, good luck

    Make sure you emphasize the importance of stretching and warming up properly. It's something you should get used to doing from the beginning or it will kick you in the arse later on.

    16 isnt that young compared to some people starting at 14 or so i started right around when i turned 16 and only thing id reccomend is of course easing him into it, i started with machines for 2-3 months then moved to squats bench press etc.
