Are you planning on competing?

Given how much you are going to grow, I doubt it's worth it to buy one.

Kudos to you for entering the gym at an early age and showing great interest. Saying that, i think you should wait a few years and gain some raw lifting strength and build a good base before using any equipment.

well that seems fine my choch said if we use anything like squats suits or wraps to only use them in are meets and i have already compted in meets at my school. but do you have any advice on incresing my dead that is what herts me at my meets.and do dl suits work very good i have a squat suit.

Glad to have you here and it's great you're already competing, but I agree that you should wait before you start spending all kinds of money on equipment. You don't even bench bdwt yet! IMHO, at your present bdwt, you should be squatting at least 280, benching 170, and DLing 280 before you bother w. equipment.

Its really good that your showing interest at such an age, I regret not lifting when I was that young. You should wait a couple years like everyone else has said, so that you can get a good base to build off.
