I have been in Kung-Fu for approximately a year, and I just discovered resistance training/weight training. I used to do basic stuff like push-ups and sit ups, but now that I’m in high-school I have the opportunity to go to the gym everyday at lunch.
I’m 127 pounds, 5’6 - 5’7 inches tall, and my BF% is roughly 9%. Oh, and before I forget, I will probably be getting subtractable weights for Christmas too
I’m pretty new to all the equipment and what it’s purpose is, but I’m gaining the knowledge slowly. I’m fairly strong for my age, actually, I can lift more than people much bigger and taller that visit the gym daily (not that it matters).
I’ve been reading a lot of articles about gaining weight and building muscle, eating properly, and such…but does any of that really apply to someone my age?
