Very much agreed.
The numbers you listed are impressive for a kid his age, but I’d still suggest he do a bodyweight routine for a week or two, if only to “deload” from free weights and make sure everything’s actually working the way it’s supposed to.
3 Days a Week
Squat 2x15 (No weight)
Lunge 2x15 (Alternate legs, 1 rep left/1 rep right)
Neutral-grip pull-up 2x15 (Could be substituted with inverted rows)
Burpee/squat thrust 2x15
hasn’t made any progress, and just maybe even lost muscle, and got fat.[/quote]
Instinct says it’s a nutrition issue.
A 15-year old dude, even if he’s interested in bodybuilding and “dedicated” to seeing progress, is unlikely to have much control over their nutrition unless they take a major role in preparing their own food. To quote The Fresh Prince, parents just don’t understand, so he should be making himself breakfast, getting himself lunch, and eating a hearty dinner every day.
He definitely doesn’t have to eat like a competitive bodybuilder, but getting three good meals every single day, plus a workout shake, should be top priority.[/quote]
Well, he was anabolic dieting for a good 4 months in which he saw little progress and maybe lost muscle, however, 4 months of anabolically dieting, cooking every meal etc, should give you an accurate perspective of wat i mean by dedication, lol. I’ll let him know about all this, THANKS GUYS! Anybody else have any useful insight?
