Everyone starts somewhere!
Just keep eating and lifting ... once you get to 18 you will see a massive difference!

You are young. Stuff your face with anything that resembles food and hit the weights with a mad fury and you will see yourself go far. Find guys who you want to be like (big, strong, both) and train with them.

You look good for 125lbs, I'm guessing your pretty small though? You're only 15, you're going to get taller anyway!

Just a question, is there any way to drop your metabolism? As soon as I gain weight, I lose it within a day.

You've got a seriously impressive physique for 15... What are your goals?? When I was 15 I looked similar and was about the same size... but I was trying to cut weight for wrestling.... a whole different story...

If you're anything like me, you're going to be that way for a looooong time.

+1 again for Mr. Drew.

Its the joys of being young and active. All it is is calories in vs calories out. You have a lot of calories going out, so you need to make sure more are going in.

you're just like me when i was 14-15. weighed 121lb at 5'3. i was afraid to gain weight, get fat, and lose my bodyweight to max lift ratio. the smartest thing i ever did was learn how to eat and add some bodybuilding movements to my powerlifting routine. because i had been on such a low caloric intake for so long (about 1300 calories a day for half a year and yes, i kept track) and never trained slow-twitch muscles before, most of the excess calories i consumed went straight to muscle. the first 4 months i upped my intake 500 to 1200 calories a day until i started losing definition in my abs. then i kept it about at about 500 calories a day above my new maintanance level for the next year or so. note i only ate clean foodsi hurt my back during this time to so i couldn't squat or deadlift so you have an advantage over me. after a year i was up to 150. what's funny is not only did my strength go up a lot in the bench, but when i started squating a deadlifting again, my maxes were a lot higher than before even though i wasn't training them. good luck to you.

here's my progress pics at 12 months so you can have an idea of what to shot for.

I don't really know man. I just like to go into the gym and lift what I want, I do less weight, more reps, I usually bench about about 6 sets of 8-10 depending on how I'm feeling at about 100-110, and that gets me really tired, I have never tried my max.

I curl 6 sets of 10 with 30's.

I may have this terminology all messed up, but, I think you'll get it.

THe key to gaining weight is to eat, if you eat and then lose weight, your probably not monitoring your calories. Record your calories for a day and if you eat the same exact amount the next day and drop weight, then you know you need to increase the cals, and it may be as simple as just eating the same meals, but if you increase your healthy fats(fish oils) with each meal, tha tcould make a huge difference, gotta play with it and see!

AT 15 with that build is a damn good start!! You are a walking muscle! Excellent foundation to work with by 16 you will see some major improvements!

Very impressive dude:thumbup:

Pray to God you are NOT like me, I have a very fast metabolism, gaining weight/mass is really really difficult for me. I kept hearing that when I got older my metabolism would slow down and I would gain weight easily...I am now 44 years old and I STILL have a fast metabolism and I STILL have trouble gaining/maintaining mass :(

ha, When I was young, I always thought it was good to be skinny, this last year though I've been realizing it isn't so good.

As of yesterday I started on an eating binge, almost eating till i'm sick.

If you're trying to gain weight, you pretty much always want that semi-bloated (read: full) feeling, and definitely NEVER want to feel hungry, you should be taking in calories much earlier than that. While everyone is right, just be careful not to overdo it, no need to gain senseless fat. Just double what you're eating for a month, see how you're doing in terms of muscle gain/fat gain and then re-evaluate your caloric intake.

Nice frame to start with, by the time you're legal (read: 18) you could be a monster.

In health I learned that eating right before you go to bed will make you gain weight, because you are doing nothing with your calories. What do you guys think of doing this?

BulldogGST2
11-17-2008, 11:20 AM
there's a small amount of very technical evidence to support that, but the theory is a little different than that. Anways, I would probably ignore 50% of what you would learn in a high school level class, especially "health".

Where do you workout at? Can anyone there advise you?

Eat before you go to bed, right when you get up, and constantly in between :)

haha, thats for the advice guys, I ate 'till I almost puked tonight, two 12 inch subs.

Here man, use this site and track your calories... I love the split it gives, and it's really easy to do. Takes me like 15 minutes a day...

Here is mine for today...

BTW, since I started tracking my calories 3 weeks ago, I've gained 6 pounds. Trust me, I was never eating as much as I thought I was.

when it comes down to it calories in vs calories out determines whether you will gain or not, so eating before bed wont necessarily make you gain weight unless your calories in are more than your calories out...eating late is assuming that you have already eaten a substantial amount during the day....just keep eating bro

Hanlon

A little update, I have gained 5 pounds in the last month, not much but, I guess eating 'till I'm sick is paying off.

11-22-2008, 07:23 AM
5lbs in 1 month is good (probably too much to be honest) ... don't go for any more than that.

Think about 5lbs a month for a year ... that's 60lbs!

Hanlon
11-22-2008, 03:13 PM
I think it was around 4 lbs, to be exact. But how do I maintain this weight without gaining more?

yes, I am similar to this guy. I am 145 and nearly 6' but I obviously have a low bodyfat %. still bulking though

as for slowing down your metabolism, I've heard that eating less frequently (3-4 times [big meals] as opposed to 6-8 times [smaller meals] a day) will do the trick. Of course I can't really relate to this because I have not had enough experience to compare the two but I believe it to be true (basically I have only ever really eaten 3-4 large meals).

Hanlon

Updated pics, I have gained about 8 lbs, I think it shows, not seeing my ribs so much anymore, not really a hard flex here.
