    Default 17 yr old 105 Pounds Male needs feedback!

    Hey guys,

    Anyway
    I'm 5'7 tall, weigh around 110 pounds and just turned 17.

    About me:
    I'm pretty skinny, I always sucked at arm wrestling. In workouts I tend to jump all in, i don't do a lot of sports but have am naturally athletic. Very fast, long endurance and very good hand-eye coordination (thanks to nunchucks). I also go to 1-2 judo lessons a week which takes 1-3 hours.

    Anyway, my new daily routine is as following:

    4 sets of 25 Sit Ups
    4 sets of 25 Push Ups
    4 sets of 25 Crunches
    4 sets of 25 Squats
    4 sets of 25 Prone drops
    4 sets of 25 (That thing where you do a jumping jack and then drop to do a push up)

    Now i either do that or I run for 5-10KM which usually take me around 30-47 minutes.

    Now my dad always tells me all this stuff where i should eat tons of potatoes, chick peas and stuff like that. I'm ok with that. I recently looked at a fitness magazine and I am quite interested in some of these protein drinks or what ever they are called. So i searched up on MuscleTech Vapore, and Black Powder By MRI.
    Black Powder By MRI seems very interesting, however i don't know if these ingredients would be suiting for my age.

    Anyway, any feedback on what im doing right now?
    Whats the best way to gain some weight (10-25 pounds extra) while maintaining a very muscular body. Forgive my ignorance but my goal is to get an 8 pack as my rib cage is quite high so it should reveal the 7th and 8th muscle.

    i wanna say thanks ahead of time for replying :P

    Best way to gain weight is to eat tons.
    For you:
    Maintenance: 2009 Calories/day
    Weight Gain: 2509 cals/day (mininum)
    Fat Loss: 1607 Calories/day

    Here's a calculator you can use in the future: http://www.freedieting.com/tools/calorie_calculator.htm

    In my opinion muscletech is a waste of money because it has few servings for a very high price. From what I've heard, they put a bunch of useless crap in there that does nothing, but they claim it does, which is how they charge outrageous prices. Maybe someone else on here can give you better advice from experience.

    What you need is more food and a better workout before you even think about buying supplements.

    Well, it depends. You might want to use something like fitday or mynetdiary to make counting cals easier and quicker. You can easily make a weight gain shake with 1100+ calories like this one:

    2 cups of whole milk
    1 cup of oats
    1 6oz container of strawberry yogurt
    1/2 table spoon of banana pudding mix
    1 banana
    1/4 teaspoon of vanilla flavoring
    1 scoop of your choice of protein, strawberry/banana flavor tastes best.

    (you can put ice cream instead of yogourt if you want even more calories)

    Comes out to 1100 cals with 174 carbs 53 grams of protein and 26 grams of fat.

    If your workout routine is a daily thing and you simply do the same thing each day muscle gains will be minimal. You need to progress and let your muscles recover to gain muscle mass. You would also get much more out of it if you added pull ups (lats), chin ups(bis/lats), dips(tris) and military press for delts.

    You will also have to take in a lot of high quality calories. Whey protein would be of a great benifit to you. If you take roughly 20 grams first thing in the morning and after your workout you will really help your muscles grow.

    If you have access to a gym I strongly suggest trying a beginner workout from this site.

    Eat Big, Lift Big and Rest Big!
