    16 yr old male weighing 120 pounds, I believe I am skinny fat and so should I cut while practising form then recomp then bulk or can I recomp now? (Cut would be 1400 calories and recomp 1800)

    forget about cutting
    forget about recomping
    eat around 2000 cals a day of good food.
    workout around a basic program aiming to get stronger, you'll add muscle as part of the process.
    your body is gonner respond fantastically well right now to stimulus and good food, don't fuck that up trying to cut or recomp fat you haven't got.
    Go grow some muscle.

    You are 16, go get strong and make your parents buy you extra meat/rice/potatos/eggs etc

    Look up Stronglifts 5x5
    Do that 3-4 times a week and some isolation work after for arms or shoulders etc.

    Track your food intake
    Be consistent with your diet if it helps - eat the same thing every day it makes it easier to gauge what does what

    Get 8hrs sleep a night

    You'll be flying along in no time.

    if only we could all be 16 again and someone drilled this into us.

    as my dad used to say, youth is wasted on the young....

    Yep keep it as simple as you can

    Get strong at the compounds. Have a structure to it, ie StrongLifts or Madcow or the millions of others out there.

    Train 3 times a week max 4

    Recover well be eating good clean calories, eat lots of it too. Sleep like a baby for as long as you can. Even have a afternoon nap if you can
