Workout Routine For Teens

"This routine has worked for me and my mates. I went from being a skinny 13 year old to a ripped 14 year old, and I'm still getting results"

My weight training program is very simple, yet it works for anyone. I try to increase the weight or reps every time I go to the gym, and record every bit of progress. I try to use as many compound weight excercises as possible to gain core strength.

And that's it. I try to work on only two muscle groups each time (Eg. Back and Chest, Legs and Shoulders, etc.)

It worked for me and my mates. I went from being a skinny 13 year old to a ripped 14 year old, and I'm still getting results.
