First of all, I came here after not getting much good advice from other sites. I’m a 16 year old male who is looking to get bigger, look better and feel good (not exactly strange or unusual goals) in order to feel more confidence, get girls and (potentially) get fit enough for going to Sandhurst after University. I have only started by first year of A Levels, so I have time on my side. I also have plenty of paths I could take, so I may not end up there in the future at all, but I do know where I want to be physically.
Looking at my photos, what would you say my goals should be body-wise, and how would be the best way to get bigger, better and so on. I am unsure as to my body-fat percentage, and unsure with all of the terminology in general. Do I bulk up to show off/define my muscles, abs etc. more? Do I reduce my body fat percentage a little? As you can gather, I have plenty of questions which I think this community will be extremely helpful at answering.
I also model (not done anything too big yet, teenager and all haha) so getting a good, well, ‘ripped’ body would seriously help me in this area as it would make me look better as a whole, give me more confidence and perhaps open the way for more/different kinds of photoshoot. Plus girls who model are generally amaze, so if I can get the body I know I am capable of, I will have much more success than what I have had in the past - which is very low. I understand the key to that is much more than simply body/looks, but as many of you will be able to relate, having a good body does wonders for confidence and being physically attractive. I’m working on my conversational/pulling skills, so this seemed naturally the best thing to go along with that.
All of that being said, I am not a stranger to exercising and the gym. I’ve been going somewhat over the past few years, and while I have seen some improvement, I know that I need to be more structured, set and know what it is I am doing and where I want to go. Many programmes I have followed have had exercises which were complicated, or asked me to do more than what I could manage with my current commitments (school, air cadets, horse riding etc.). Simplicity, a programme which could allow me to just get on and work hard would be best. I want the most out of my time. I understand gains and progress takes time, but a programme which I could ‘feel’ working and feel the next day would do a lot to create a feeling of progress. A programme with complicated exercises and so on will just leave me guessing and making mistakes. I'm wanting to use my time more productively in 2016, and this is an area which could use some work. I want, and I know I can achieve, a physique which makes girls go "wow." I'm not all about that, just another benefit would be that aside more confidence etc.

Thank you fellas for reading this (kinda) long introduction post. Leave any feedback you may find useful. What do YOU think my goals should be? What is my current fitness state right now? What programmes do you think would do the most for me? How long (roughly, and again I must emphasis I know this takes time, it is just helpful/motivating to have a time of year to aim for) will it take for me to start seeing visible results? I would like to avoid excessive weight lifting and have a good balance between bodyweight and weight lifting, as I will have to be ace at press ups, pull ups etc. if I do go to Sandhurst (at the minute I cannot get past 3-4 pull ups ).
Many thanks, and good luck to all of you this year!
P.S. Any other questions you have, please ask. If a programme comes to mind, tell me . Also apologies if it seems long-winded.
