Ok guys, I'm only 13,and I weigh 160lbs and 5'8, but I'm black belt TKD, and blue belt Karate, been out of training for about 6 months. Sudden urge to get in shape. Started training at TKD again, but I have no weights. So far I'm doing 20 Tri-Cep Pressups, 30 sit-ups, and 20 Bi-Cep pressups, and 300+mtr swims.Anyone know of anyway to grow my muscle mass that's bearable at my age?

Its fucking fine to start lifting at your age, dont listen to what any other fucktard says. Just make sure you know what you're doing, if possible joing a powerlifting/ olympic lifting club.

I'm fairly certain I'm not. I started weightlifting when I was 12 and I am now 17, taller than my dad, an advanced judo player and can do multiple gymnastic manoeuvres (hand stand push ups, planche, backflips etc). My growth has not been stunted in any way.

please, spare me your estats?

that's really cool bro, but for the majority of young kids working out, it has adverse effects.

Not e-stats, and the 'lifting stunts you growth' theories have been proven as old wives tales time and time again.

It all depends on what type of lifting and the weights man.

If this 13 year old is trying to deadlift 200kg his back will be perminantly damaged.

you feel me dawg?

Anyone who tries to dead lift 200kgs when they cant are going to have permanently damaged backs. At 13 he wont even be able to pick that much up anyway.

When lying down, flex your stomach. Every night, try to fall asleep with your stomach flexed.
This will add up and slowly make you slim.

>13 years old
>wants to gain muscle

kid your body is not even half way through your growing phase.

If you don't want to look like a hunchback, just eat healthily till you are at least 19, then start lifting.

It's safe to start lifting at age 14

Your body isn't fully developed untill around 24 years old bro.

By lifting that early, you are stunting growth patterns in your body.

Yeah I know the theory, as long as he isn't maxing or lifting insane amounts of weights he will be fine.

Well, I know I'm gonna grow more, and I've been doing martial arts for 7 years, but my muscles are already showing up more than they used to, but I'm just sick of being over-weight despite the work I do anyway, so I thought might aswell do more, even if it's just to lose weight, I'm eating better also.

If you want to lose weight, thats fine, just don't try to do weights/build muscle at your age.

eat healthy, and go for a run, and use "CALORIES IN/CALORIES OUT".

thats how you lose weight.

Just a couple of pressups won't do any harm, though, right?

body weight exercises wouldn't matter too much, in that you are basically just using the exercise to kick start your metabolism to lose weight faster.

well, that's alright, I wasn't thinking about using weights anyway. I mean we have this machine that has a bar that you pull down, I was doing a couple of reps on that, but I guess you're saying that's not good to do.

Thats called a "Lat pull down" it works the muscles under your armpits (latimus)

But I have to pull it like a pull-up, because my arms don't go all the way down sideways because there are other things were my amrs should go. So I'm essentially doing a pull-up.

Yeahm the idea of the machine is to simulate a pullup bro

But yeah when I use it, it feels like it works my triceps aswell, is it meant to do that?

not really, you should lower the weight, it's meant to isolate the latimus.

dude, don't listen to those guys up top, they really hav no idea what they are talking about

pic related, thats me, i think i know how to lift

Oh jeez, yeah, you look like you know to lift.
But I thought the only reason I was feeling the burn more on my tri-ceps was because I can't have my arms far apart. Would that be the case?

ok, it doesn't matter where you put your arms on a lat pulldown machine.

you have to imagine in your mind what muscle is being worked, in this case the lats.

if you are straining your biceps or triceps, then the weight is too heavy, knock it down a few notches, and try again
