Im new to IM and im only 15 years old. I dnt have ne big exercising equipments, and i just do basic stuff like situps and push-ups. I want to get bigger but dnt know how, and hopefully u guys can help me out. I would like to get bigger cause currently im short and pretty skinny.
Im 168cm tall
and weigh about 55kgs
First of all i have some basic questions that i have long been waiting to be answered.
Am i too young to start training?
Plus i cant seem to get some muscle under my chest (Opposite to the top part of the abs, sorry but i dnt know what they're called! )
Some of my friends say if i carry heavy weights i might get short (And i dnt want that to happen!) Is that true?
If this is true, is there ne other workouts i can do that wont make me shorter?
if you're interested in training, find a gym and a trainer to walk you through the basics. does your school have a gym? do they offer training classes?
you are not too young
don't worry about not gaining in certain areas, just be sure to train all muscle groups
your friends are idiots
anyway, welcome to bodybuilding my friend! i was the same height and weight as you when i was 15. (i am now 68kg at 174 cm). not huge but muscle shows well on us short skinny guys (people think i'm at least 80kg)
read up on articles and discussions on this site regarding training and diet. good luck!
Well just then i went to buy some dumbells and i could only afford 1 . But i bought it neway, they are 5kg dumbells. (Im having trouble with money too )
Is there some kind of technique for using dumbells (i mean dumbell! ) that i should know?
Yes, there are several exercises you can do with just one dumbell, although it may take longer to get through your workous and require a little creativity. I might suggest going to your local library and checking a book or two out on inroductory weightlifting. The pictures could be a big help since it can be somewhat awkward trying to describe it online (kinda like the muscle under your chest ). Or maybe you can find something at a used book store if money is tight.
What I would suggest, is staying after school and using their equipment if its far. One 11 lb dumbell is going to limit you. Find a way to stay after school just 2 or 3 days a week, or on weekends, and youll be ok
