I'm 16 (only just) and I go to the gym 3/4 times a week usually. It's not doing me any harm!
i was refering to gains in lean muscle - not in lifts.
and whilst you have been lifting more, you have been losing weight... generally the more you lift, the more your muscles grow, but you have actually been losing weight.... hhhmmmm
maybe if u followed a dedicated cut/ bulk programme like every major bobybuilder ever you might make some gains in muscle, instead of just strengh!
whos clueless now? - smart a*s*
it all depends on personal taste i suppose, when i started i never wanted to get 'big' but the bigger i get the more i want... its one of those things you will never know unless u try.
