Well this is not for me, but for my brother, he currently took interest in training and wants to gain some mass this summer so he is a little bigger as he gets into highschool.
His current stats:
Weight- 107 Pounds
First time at the gym today:
5rm Bench- 65
5rm Deadlift- 135
5rm Squat- 115
Looking at his stats and being the first time at the gym i guess he needs some help, though im pretty sure once his form and he learnes the movement he will be able to bump those up pretty quickly.
My question is what should he do at this age, i would put him on my program but it is too much for him, and the diet has to be different too. He eats all the shit food in the house and doesnt gain a pounds, im the oppposite. I guess we have very simlilar genetics in the sence that we both have very thick legs and calves. And also looking at the numbers the percentage pretty much ligns up with my lifts.

I only have a couple of months of training so i didint feel qualified on what program he should start with. I can teach him all the basic stuff, i took time learning my form and its spot on. I was thinking of WSFSB or Starting strenght. His goal is to get to at least 130lb in 4 and a half months. I dont know if his age allows that kinda growth, but im pretty sure he is going trough puberty as he is growing a beard. Any idea of what he should start with? He also wants to get stronger in the process. I would appreciate any help on what program to start him on.
Also what stuff should he be eating, should he do a dirty bulk since he doesnt gain weight and at his age his metabolism is probably fast? Or should he try something cleaner? What type of diet or eating habits will give him these results the fastest?
Thanks in advance to anyone who replies, any questions feel free to ask.
