Hey, help is MUCH appreciated. Let me give you some background info...
I'm 16, pretty ectomorpic, and am desperately looking for change. I am pretty athletic guy, have played football since I was young, but have always been skinny. The potential for strength is definitly there, but I just cant seem to grasp it. I dont grow up in a house where lots of meat-products are available, but I can get into my diet sometimes.
I weigh about 130 or so, maybe 140 and am 5'8, not sure. I can bench my weight, but thats about it, don't seem to get any higher. Don't have much access to a gym, but can lift after school on mondays-thursdays.
I would like some tips on what types of supplements to get, and if it really maters, because I have this tub of protein shakes with 22 grams per serving. I was also wondering if protein bars offer the same effect, and why fat free milk is better than the vitamin D milk(I was thinking the one with more fat would be better).
But anyways...I would really appreciate any input from some of you bigger guys out there. I've seen it done by a skinny guy like me, so i'm hoping for simliar results. And sorry if a similiar topic has been posted, Haven't really had time to read through all of the boards.
