    Hey guys i'm new here, I've wanted to share my progress in gaining. Soooo I started something like 2 months ago. I'm looking for some advices and maybe criticism, btw i'm 15. Everything im taking rn is monohydrate creatine and whey protein. I'm trying to bulk with not so good effects yet. What do you guys think?

    Well to be honest mate, without a set of before pics is hard to say how your progressing.
    That said, for 15 yeah decent.

    creatine and whey definitely have a place but nothing beats food...
    the food side of things is where you will make your gains.
    if you post your eating and training ( honestly ) members can see if you can make any changes that will help you.
    wish I'd started at 15, get the basics down and you'll grow like a weed.

    i'm not good with counting calories but im trying my best to eat as much as i can.
    Currently my training plan looks like that
    1 day - chest and triceps
    4 excercises 10 reps each for every part, sometimes more and sometimes less depends on a weight
    2 day - biceps and back
    same as above
    and 3 day - legs and shoulders
    same
    4 day is a rest day, and then it loops
    what do you think about the training?

    First off glad to see you aren't starting any peds yet. They are bad to take at any age but during puberty is literally the worst time.

    That being said I'd add these sups

    L carnitine 2g a day for androgen receptors density get those muscles building

    Ashwagnda as well to keep cortisol leveled out, also helps maintain healthy test levels

    Zinc + vitamin D + magnesium are also essential to keep test levels as high as possible
    They don't "raise" test but defiency will lower it you don't want that.

    I'd post more details about workouts more than just the body part that's being worked more info helps

    What does your diet look like?
    Use an app like myfitnesspal.
    You need to eat to grow.
    The better you eat, the better the results.

    Google calorie calculator or will be something along them lines, myfitness pal app will do it for you once you enter you info. I'm also pretty sure there is one on this forum somewhere if you search the categories...
    Don't get too hung up on cals and macros etc at 15 though..
    ok, if you want to get accurate etc but tbh mate, just eat well and make good choices for the time being.
    Meats eggs etc for protein, potato rice etc for carbs and fats generally take care of themselves.
    Aim for things like scrambled egg on toast for breakfast, 2 toast 4 eggs, chicken sandwich dinner, spag bol for tea, or at least along those lines, try to stay away from more processed and sugary stuff ( basically what most 15 year olds eat :confused:)

    put a normal days eating up and we can say if ok or where to make some changes.
    it's prob not easy as you'll likely get what is put on table in front of you at 15 but you can easily make some improvements if need be.
    protein shake after workout etc can always be useful if needed but eating well is first goal.

    your training plan looks like a decent split, but again a bit more detail, exercises etc and we can maybe improve it, but initially looks OK, but there's other methods which might suit better given your age and experience.
    key is to concentrate on more basic stuff initially ( compound movements )
    that's where you'll initial build your strength and make good foundations.

    75kg
    2-3g protein per kg bw = 150-225 protein a day (some can come from whey shakes but most should come from whole foods)
    1 x bw fats so 75g ish fats
    The rest carbs

    So
    150g protein 4cals per g protein = 600cals
    75g fat 9cals per gram = 675
    The rest should be carbs
    600+675 = 1275
    400g carbs is 1600 cals
    2875cals total would be a fair place to start if you train hard, eat clean and are consistent!
    And get your sleep too, you'll grow like a weed.
