    lol im not trying to show off, so I don't why you are saying " don't count" even more confused now lol, surely only skinny people like me have a six pack because there has to be less fat for the muscle to visible?! Ah, you have made me even more confused, thanks for your input anyway.
    A six pack is muscle. What you're witnessing is simply your rib cage! Trust me I was the same. You have a low fat percentage but not necessarily much muscle on your abs.

    How would putting on muscle affect his bones?
    Well I always thought that if you stack too much muscle whilst your bone structure is developing, then it'll cause issues when your skeleton is trying to grow under the compressing muscle forces. Can't actually find anything to support that though, but the danger of stunting your growth through injury is still there

    On topic, you are far too young to worry about height/weight/muscle.

    clearly not a 6 pac. just cos you're skinny. its like a fat girl with big boobs, dunt count pal.
    It might not "count", but being skinny doesn't stop visible abdominal muscles being a 6-pack. It's just not very impressive except for girls of a similar age.

    Plenty of teenagers have 6-packs, even if it just because they are incredibly skinny. It's perfectly possible to have a 6-pack without training abs, just not for everyone. Ribs are quite tricky to mistake for abs lol.


    OP, 45kg sounds light to me. But I have absolutely no idea what a teenager of your height "should" weight, so don't listen to me. Just make sure you eat lots as you are a growing man!

    What are muscles anchored to?

    Muscles that are too strong for underdeveloped bones will cause problems.

    You weigh very little. The reason your sixpack is visible is because you don't have much fat to cover the shape of your muscles, like most people do. If you weighed more and had a sixpack, that would be something good. Being your own weight, having a little bit more fat on would be healthier.

    Can a natural 14 year old really put on so much muscle that it hinders bone development/growth? I'm no scientist but I highly doubt it.

    Also Architecture-er, there's no reason he should injure himself. I don't think he intends to lift anyway.

    He's 7 stone, his bones aren't going to be particularly well developed yet; overloading underdeveloped joints and bones will cause complications. Osgood-Schlatter disease, Sever's disease are two examples.

    some people say i weigh too less and its unhealthy to have a so called six pack at 13
    I had a 6 pac when I was about 11/12....it is normal if you're naturally athletic...about 5 lads in my year did as well.

    Also a 6 pac isn't really an impressive muscle group...spinal erectors, lats and traps are the daddy once you actually start lifting....I would also say delts if I had a decent pair to know that feeling.
