    New Body builder

    Hi everybody. My brother just recently got me into bodybuilding at the ripe age of 13. I am very determined to try to be the best that I can be. I was just curious as to if yall had any tips for a newbie. I currently bench a maximum of 90 lbs. One of my brother's very close friend (Who is the number 7 powerlifter in the region of Fort Worth/Dallas) made me a schedual:
    HAYDEN'S WORKOUT PLAN:
    (These weights below will change as we work-out next week.)

    MONDAYS: Bench: 1x8 45
    1x6 60
    2x6 65

    DB Flyes: 3x6 15's
    Military Press: 4x6 45
    Curls: 3x8 45
    Shrugs: 4x10 95

    TUESDAYS: Squat: 1x8 75
    1x6 95
    3x6 115

    Leg Press: 4x8 150
    Leg Extensions: 4x8 80
    Hamstring Curls: 4x8 45

    WEDNESDAYS:300 Crunches (Keep doing as many as you can until it all totals up to 300.)

    THURSDAYS: DB Bench: 1x8 15's
    3x6 25's

    DB Flyes: 3x6 15's
    DB Front Raises: 3x6 15's
    Shrugs: 4x10 95

    FRIDAYS: Deadlift: 1x8 95
    1x1 105
    2x5 115
    Leg Press: 4x8 150
    Leg Extensions: 4x8 80
    Hamstring Curls: 4x8 45

    What do you guys think about this? Pretty good for a newbie? Do I have any chance of getting any where with this?

    Now another thing is is that I am trying very hard to get a 6-pack. I already have my upper abs developed, but just cant seem to master my lower abs. I've viewed many different techniques, yet they place no strain upon my lower abs.

    Heres some addition information if it matters.
    Weight: 125 lbs
    Height: 5' 6
    How long I've been working out: 1 week
    Diet: None, but some whey protein every now and then

    Thanks a ton!

    Oh and by the way, I hardly consider myself a body builder, but I didn't know the correct word for it if that makes any sense...

Its like having a house and shopping for furniture, but instead of going to the store and getting couches, you go the gym or weight room in your house and you purchase muscles with energy lol...

    So your a beginner body builder, a weight lifter, a fitness guy, a guy that likes to train, the names are endless bro.

    Welcome. Your workout looks good. If you stick to it you'll be huge in a few years.

    Also, another question (sorry I forgot to add it) is that Is 90 lbs a good bench max for a 125 lb 7th grader?

    I think that's more than I was benching in the 7th grade. Don't worry too much about the weights but learn the movements to begin with. Those numbers will jump up pretty quickly as your body learns the movements.

    I agree with HomeYield, its very important to a beginner to get your muscles used to the full range of motion. I've always been told technique,technique,technique(spelling ?)

    sh!ma, you sure you wanna be training so young?
    The hormones that make our muscles grow also close of the cartilage in our bones, this means that heavy resistance training at a young age can curtail growth.

    Rather do cardio, and endurance sort of training focusing on you core (stomach, glutes and lower back).

    Things like dips, chins and push-ups are better for some one of your age.

    This has not been proven.

    disagree dude,

    sh!ma your routine looks good, just make sure you are eating enough and i can't see there being any problems with stunted growth

    training at that age and the nxt few years should see some great gains with all that testosterone.

    Sweet Yeah I've heard that stunted growth rumor, and I dont think its true. A lot of my brothers friends started working out when they were 13 and they are just as tall as they should be. I bet you that rumor started when some kid's mom wouldnt let him work out so he told that to everyone

    Oh, and what about the 300 crunches? Because in one of the articles on this site it says doing 300 crunches is dangerous...

    Working out at a young age doesn't stunt your growth, although you may not see good really good gains until you start to grow some more, and start filling out your body, but it's essential to get your body used to the movements, don't worry about the weight right now worry about the movements. Also, have fun with it.

    300 crunches won't do much for you. Stick with lower reps and go to failure or near failure. So if that means do weighted crunches then do that.
