Wake up and eat breakfast first-a good breakfast, not cereal junk. Let it sit for about 30 min. As you're letting it sit, stretching would be good.

Start out with pull-ups, do as many as you can till you practically fall off the bar
Switch to push ups
Switch to jump roping
Switch to tricep push ups (basically push ups with your chest facing up, push up with your hands up two stairs on a stair case, feet on floor)
Switch to sit-ups
Switch to running up and down stairs
Repeat until you can't take anymore

After this main set, go for a jog or something.

Drink water till you spew


Do this at least six days a week

If you lift weights, go with monday wednesday friday, your muscles need time to rebuild.

That's my workout routine, I just go till I die.

Be sure to eat lots of carbs for energy and protein to encourage muscle development and repair, but have a good balance too.

When you get to the point where you feel like you can't go any further, go for the extra push up/pull up, etc. to make sure your muscles tear.

Forget joining gyms, do it yourself, buy your own weights(which I still need to get)

*Tip, when regular push ups get too easy, rest your feet up on a stair to put more weight up front

Also, for a more full arm workout from push ups, start with your hands touching eachother in the middle-helps your triceps-then move them to about shoulder length-helps biceps-then move them as far apart as you can go-helps separate quadriceps and biceps and works quadriceps

There's a big learning process in sculpting your body, you need to know what works what and stuff, so read up on this too.

I'm not that experienced with working out yet, but hey, I'm only 15, so cut me some slack.

My problem is that I work out too much. Usually 7 days a week, but twice a month I'll take a day off the heal my muscles (I know thats not enough)
Here is my routine based on a 4 day cycle

day 1-shoulders and forearms
day 2-back and triceps
day 3-chest and biceps
day 4 (which I consider almost an off day because I am not that much into working out the following) cardio, legs and core muscles.

I begin all workouts with 5-6 minutes jog then proceed to the workout. Upon completion I cool down for 5-6 minutes then stretch the muscles that I have worked out. I stretch after my workouts not before, because I believe that a lengthened muscle is a weakened muscle.

I usually workout 7 days a week because I am addicted to it, it is my drug and mentally i have a tough time going without it. Hey I guess it beats snorting powder up my nose!

I run, ride my bike, play outside, and swim.

Purely for my own enjoyment, which works perfectly for me.



Happy and healthy.

Weight machines Mon, Wed, Fri

- Streches
- 1 set of double the number of reps at half weight to warm up
- 30 reps each at full weight in a circuit fashion (5-10 reps per circuit depending on what I can manage)

Takes about 1 hour 15 min.

I use 6 machines, all of which are maxed out (255) except curls (150) and leg curls (105lb but 160 reps total - knee injury prevents more weight)

I also swim quite a bit in warm whether and jog on occasion in cooler whether.

Why do I do it?
- To keep from dying prematurely
- To be strong (it's fun kicking my kid's butts on the jungle gym)
- To feel good
- To increase my overall energy levels
- To look good
- To increase testosterone
- To give myself 3 hours a week free of the demands of others

You are working out too much if you are weight training every day. Try each muscle group once per week 40 to 60 minutes per group until exhaustion and don't do them again until the same day the following week. Try mixing it up a bit. Because you use triceps alot benching and such, try switching them with your bicep routine. That way they aren't directly and indirectly worked twice the same week. If you need to fill the space in between like I do, try cardio in between. But, if its working for you, keep at it. It did not work for me because I was breaking down the same muscles before they could rebuild.

I try to run every other day, and when I'm not running, I go to the gym and lift weights. This works out perfectly so that everyday I'm doing something. On my running days, I'll do either 2 mile loop around my neighborhood, or a 3.4 mile loop. Then at the gym, I usually do bench, bicep curls on one of the various machines, shoulder, abs, legs, and sometimes tricep or back. Then I swim on some days.

Basically, I do it to feel good, look good, and be healthy. It's working out pretty well for me so far
