    Um... why woudlent it be?
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    heavier weight + lower reps = higher strength increase

    If you are looking to increase strength, do a search for the 5 x 5 routine
