It’s good to have someone so young. Enjoy the forums. 13 seems REALLY young to me though. I hope you have a coach/dad who is helping you out. Let us know ifwe can help in any way. Good to have you!

That’s awesome, I wish I learned this stuff earlier. And being 164lbs without being a fatass at 5’4" and 13yo is huge. You’ll be an absolute tank someday for sure.

Learn as much as you can. Work out. Eat clean. Lift with good form. Stay healthy. Stay humble. Get big

I wish I had been thinking about stuff like that when I was your age.
