Mate, your'e still growing. Your'e skeletal system hasn't stopped developing yet. Just eat a healthy balanced diet and workout hard. Eat enough so that you fuel your'e natural and stimulated growth from exercise. keep away from the supplements and all the other **** until youv'e done growing as forcing the issue may well lead to a heap of health problems further down the track. Why not enjoy building steadily what youv'e got for the next 4 or 5 years and then hit it hard, rather than rush things and risk ****ing yourself up so preventing you working out for the rest of your natural.

1300 calories is waaaay too little for someone still growing to be eating. If you want to bulk up with muscle, you need a lot more than 1800. My cutting diet consisted of 1900-2100 a day. From what I've read, for bulking it's good to have about a gram of protein per pound of bodyweight per day. I've never really done any bulking diets but there is a lot of good info on www.bodybuilding.com. You should have no problem finding good articles there.

When I was 14, I was a bodybuilder. Generally as far as diet goes, you want a gram of protein per pound of body weight, and 2 grams of carbs per pound of body weight. That being said, although it's good to diet and have occassional exerecise while that young, take it from me, DON'T WORK OUT LIKE YOU'RE 18.

In my gym, by 15 I was already stronger than 95 percent of people in my town, I was a bodybuilding machine, and paid dearly for it. All that weight on still developing bones is not a good thing, and believe me, at your age people told me not to do it, but I did anyway. I highly recommend not to overdue it till at least 18.

All that muscle looks good until you have to walk with a limp everywhere like me.

I can box just fine, but I can't walk in a straight line cause all the squats i did deformed my hips

Think of it like welding to pieces of metal together, you don't just weld and walk off, you weld, hold the metal in place till the metal cools down and sets, then you're good

The same applies to your bones, they don't respond so well to stress until they set in place

Ok, thanks for the tip. I won't do any squats or weights over my head. I'm only going to become 180 pounds so it shouldn't be that big of a deal right?

By the way, how is this ratio, 200g protein (from 3 scoops of whey mostly) 60g of fat and 400g carbs (from all the rice I eat)I can increase the fat if I wanted by eating more peanut butter, and I can decrease the protein however by decreasing the scoops of whey. The carbs can come and go easy from the rice. Just tell me what I should switch and I will.

The carbs can come and go easy from the rice. Just tell me what I should switch and I will. (with 1800 calories)


Sounds pretty good man, you've got a good head on ya. I wouldn't go over the 30 grams of fat though. Ideal is 20-30 g per day no matter what your size.

One side note however, I'd be kind of cautious about getting damn near all your protein from a powder, some in your diet is fine, but you should mainly get your protein, fats and carbs
from solid food. If you're strapped for cash, canned tuna gives you alot of protein for your buck.

Just make sure to eat it with tuna helper or something though cause if you eat it by it's self, you could end up like me and after about the 3rd year of tuna eating, want to puke when you smell it lol

skim milk and cottage cheese are also good protein sources. cottage cheese best before bed because of the casein protein so your body doesn't eat your muscle while you sleep.

there are no scientific proofs that weightlifting will make you stop growing earlier, but its easier to get injured whenyour not fully grown.

just do light and lots of reps youl be fine.

im not an advocate of supplements as it is but a 14 year old???

that just cant be good for you
you will get too big for your natural limits and will cause some injuries

also as soon as you stop working out for say a month because of weightlifting injury (inevitable) you will lose muscle fast because your body will return to natural state

your skin will stretch out and you will look like a wwe wrestler whos lost all his muscle

trust me i know a guy who been down that route and it dont look good
