    proper weight gain

    Hello all- I'm in need of some learned advice on putting on some muscle. I'm 17 and skinny as hell (125 on a good day). I just started BJJ a few months ago, and while I realize that being small will, in the long run, improve my technique, I could definitely do with a little more mass. However, I would really like to keep my body fat % very low, which I gather may be a problem if I'm trying to increase my size. Does anyone have any diet and/or workout tips that might prove useful?

    you're only 17 don't stress too much. There is a good chance your body is still growing. Also at 17 as a skinny fucker I could eat whatever I wanted and not gain fat...

    Do you have access to a weight room? Or weights?


    Do you understand how to do a search function on this forum? It HAS been discussed before.

    Your on the wrong forum. Go to www.t-mag.com . Read the articles, all off them. It'll help. They even have articles on weight training for MMA by coach Sonnen and Mike Mahler.

    Never read a MuscleMag or sny stupid shiit like that, thats rule #1. You're going to be reading articles written by people that are superhumanly big with years of steroid abuse telling you their routines. Yay. Your 125 and 17 so you'll probably be naturally small. You can waste alot of time buying useless junk that says it will turn you into the hulk or you can buy a simple book on weightlifting and maybe take some protein and work hard for the next 4 years so your body develps naturally. If you do a simple routine plus your BJJ your body will get very strong.

    i would recommend leaving very heavy lift routines until you have stopped growing. Medium heavy would be ok. Dont worry about being small when you are seventeen------ some of the guys that were small at my school are tanks now!!!!

    If you wanna get big its more about your diet bing in order then anything else. You can lift aall the weight in the world, but if you don't eat right or more importantly enough then you won't get any gains. Message me and I'll set you up with a few things that could help you.

    If you are 17, don't worry about muscle mass.
    Your body is still growing. You are better off dedicating yourself to fitness and flexibility at this stage.

    By all means, do weights and eat healthy if you want, but don't stress or dedicate a lot of time to bulking up.

    At 20+ you will begin to fill out naturally and put on muscle. At 25-26+
    you will really fill out.
