    Hey im 15 years old and have been lifting for about 8 months now i go to the gym 6 days week and am pretty consistent with it. Through these 8 months i dont think i have gotten strong enough for the amount i work out and i was wondering if it was normal. when i started i benched about 145 and now i am up to 170. I weigh 150 and am 5'10. (and to make myself more clear the bench was just an example on gain not trying to say all i do is chest) I was just was wondering if this is normal or am i doing something wrong or is my diet mabie wrong

    If your goal is to "Build Muscle" then why are you going to the gym 6 days a week. What type of routine are you performing ??

    You need to just stick to a basic Starting Strength or Madcow 5x5 in the gym 3x a week and focus on eating enough to grow. Simple.

    You grow out of the gym not in the gym.

    Hey Guys, I'm just starting to lift right now. I'm a 14 year old guy, 6'0 150 lbs and I've recently lost a ton of weight.
    Two years ago, I was much shorter and weighted 227 lbs. I've lost all the weight and gotten down to a 32 inch waist.
    My question is that the only equipment I have to lift is a Bowflex machine. Can anybody help me out with what type of
    exercises to do on the machine and what else I can do to maximize muscle gain while keeping as much fat off as possible?
    Also, what type of foods do you recommend diet wise?

    Please help me, I feel lost but want to put on muscle and build a great physique.

    What kind of Bowflex is it? Do they have different models? Post a picture maybe so we can see what it's got going on.

    Does it have an instruction manual detailing the different exercises you can do with it?

    It is a bow flex Blaze. I can't upload links or images, but it is online if you look it up.
    I understand how to perform the exercises, but I am wondering which
    would be best to build all - around muscle. It can do about 70 exercises
    including all major compound lifts and isolation exercises for the chest, back, shoulders, abs,
    arms, and legs.

    Also, what type of diet plan do you recommend for me (trying to build muscle without too much fat gain?)

    Dude cut the 6 day a week hyper triple pec bump stuff take a feel week off to rest and then try a 3 day week ( Monday/wenesday/Friday ) whole body workout,you'll have more time to rest and grow.


    Something like this a classic 20 rep squat program:

    Clean and jerk ( warm up) 1-2 sets 6-8 reps
    Military press 1-3X 8-10
    barbell curl 1-3X 8-10
    bench press 1-3x 8-10
    bent over rows 1-3x 8-10
    squats 1x20
    pull overs 1x 20
    stiff-legged deadlifts 1x10-12
    calf raises 1-3 x 20
    situps 1-3x 15-20

    My advice is take one full week o then switch to this.

    as to the squats take the first 4 weeks easy with a lighter weight then you are currently doing say 20-30 pounds lighter..to get your legs conditioned to the higher reps then from the start of the second month on add 5 or 10 pounds to the bar for the squats each week.

    and also after the first 10 reps on the squats take 3-4 DEEP breaths between each squat until you reach rep 20
