I'm in 8th grade and 6 foot tall, play football and basketball. I don't have too much muscle though. The last two months I dedicated myself to getting stronger. I pushed myself as hard as I could doing varying weight exersizes at home like push ups since I didn't have a gym to go to. I went to the gym today and my squats and benchpress did not improve since 2 months ago. I felt pretty disappointed, but I can get over it. What are some exersizes I can do in the gym that would really help me get stronger?
P.s do push ups just not help the bench press? And I have access to the gym now.
Squats are #1
After that; deadlift, bench press, rows, overhead press, and chinups.
It takes time and consistancy...so keep at it.
