First of all, hi everyone. I need some help.
Ive been interested in strength training for a while now, and I’ve been doing a ton of reading and learning as much as I could for the past few days. I’ve also started doing basic workouts, and now I want to start a more intense program (whatever is the proper name). I still would like to ask you guys for help.
I’m 16, about 5’ 9" and 115 lbs. I know, I’m scrawny. Criticize all you want, I probably deserve it. One thing that would be really helpful to me is some examples of a good meal. From what I understand it’s better to eat more, smaller meals than the normal breakfast lunch dinner routine. Also, how do you guys calculate body fat percentage? I was reading the Massive Eating article, but I need to know my body fat to be able to know how many calories to eat every day.
Anyways, sorry for the dumb questions, I’m still learning. And I know a lot of people will say teach yourself but I’ve read so much contradictory information that I don’t know what’s true. And the people on this site seem the most knowledgeable so I figured asking here would be a safe bet. Thanks for all the help!
