Well first I'll introduce myself, as this is my first post on this forum

I'm 16, 5'4 115lbs

Skinny, huh? I've been lifting for about 7 months now and put it this way, when I try to use a body fat percentage device, it comes up with an error.

I'm still growing in height, as I got X-rayed for a shoulder-related problem that is a whole other conversation, and my growth plates are still obvious.

My BMI is 19.1, which is pretty low I'm told from a former Mr. Universe who works at the gym I go to.

Either way, I eat more than most of my bigger friends, and take a Whey Protein supplment called Amplify, 1 1/2 whole scoops after I work out.

I guess what I'm trying to ask is what should I eat to put on some muscle faster?

Here's a picture of myself from about a month ago:

MR. Universe works at your gym thats cool. But a mr. Universe should know that BMI is a crock of siht for bodybuilders.

Yeah he knows BMI doesn't matter, but he was just telling me that mine was really low.

Aren't squats bad for growing? Or is that just a myth?

For growing muscularly, it's one of the best exercises. As far as will it impact your height ie. compact your vertabrae or something like that? No, as long as you perfect your form first before going heavy.

Trying eating lots and lots of peanuts and natural style peanut butter. That packs on calories fast. And getfit did answer your question. She implied that it's a myth that squats are bad for you. And like many have said, squats work better than supplements. Let's just put it that way.

Oh, and :burger: :burger: :burger: :burger: :burger: :burger:

Man, I would sacrifice a few inches for a bigger squat. And I'm pretty short to begin with.

No, squats won't make you shorter. They will make everything grow.

Yeah squats definatly give you a bigger wang, its scientifically proven.

Perhaps you should PM someone like Canadian Crippler, who was fairly skinny when he began. He's been able to put on some weight despite his metabolism, so I'm sure he can help you do the same.

Well before you hurt yourself or start using bad form, make sure you start light with the squats...work your way up after you master the form.

Well, I squatted with 115, and used a pad since it's the first time I've squatted in about 2 years. I did 3 sets of 5, and I could barely walk up the stairs when I got home.

Gotta love that feeling. I stopped squatting for a few weeks since my knee was giving me problems, then started doing them again. I could barely walk to my car, hehe. I musta looked like I had crapped my pants to everyone that passed me.

Don't forget deadlifts.

It took me a while to become enlightened. ;)

Should I rep squats and deadlifts at the same amount of weight? Seems like quite a few of people on here have the same deadlift and squat maxes.

The the most weight you can do for your desired set and rep range dont just model your numbers off other peoples lifts, alot of times thats what happens with deads and squats but theres no reason to hold one back because the other one is lower.
