    When in your teens...?






    When you're in your teens is it true that the testosterone levels are so high that given the correct training you can bulk up really quickly even with having a less then perfect diet?
    I'm 16 by the way so it would be helpful to know as I am trying to bulk up.

    I am pretty skinny but should I still find it OK to add mass?

    I got this from Arnold's Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding (my variation)-

    Monday-
    Chest- Bench press & Incline Press
    Back- Bent-over barbell rows & One-arm dumbbell rows

    Tuesday-
    Biceps- Barbell curls & Alt. Dumbbell curls
    Triceps- Close grip bench & French press

    Wednesday-
    Shoulders- Lateral raises & Dumbbell presses
    Forearms- wrist curls

    I then repeat this after wed, so i'm doing chest and back on thursday etc.

    I do abs in between sets of exercises but I don't do legs as I haven't got the equipment available and I can't afford to join the local gym.

    I take sundays off.

    I can't afford to join a gym and I ain't going to even try legs using free weights IN MY HOME. Besides, I'm not bothered about legs, it's my upper body that I want to add mass to.

    first, the only limitation you have is in your head!

    Look, my mate doesn't do legs at all and he's big, strong and cut. I don't see why you insist on it when I really don't care. UPPER BODY is all i'm really wanting to improve.

    I trained legs very hard when I was young.............now I do almost nothing for them....But I do run 2x a week and do a light leg workout 2x a month...
    You dont have to train legs like an animal but you do need to do something for them......
    Run
    Bike
    Lunges
    and weights if you want..

    Enough with the metaphors. EXPLAIN why. How do my legs affect my biceps or chest for example.

    yes, it's very easy as long as you have a caloric excess and are consistant with your training. you need to focus on compound exercises

    Why though? I don't see how having weak legs will give you a big disadvantage when trying to build big biceps or something like that.

    Holy shit will someone just tell him that training legs releases growth hormone thus making is easier to build upper body, so he will shut up and go train?

    Finally.
    And in reply to foremanrules, there's no way I could get too big anyway as my legs arent small.

    I can't stand people who do no leg work, but do upper body like a banshee out of hell.
    Quit being lazy and just do leg workouts. You will look and feel better.

    or more pathetic.

    tons of dudes in the gym riding around on chickens these days. I don't see how a person could claim to be any type of athlete and not train their entire body.

    Training legs just helps in the overall. Plus girls will notice when you have unproportioned body; most don't dig the big upperbody w/ chicken legs combo.
