How do I build muscle safely at 13 years old?

I was recently asked: How do I build muscle safely at 13 years old?

My answer goes far beyond just telling the kid to focus on the major exercises & eat a lot (which are highly important) but above that, developing the habit of always moving & being active, is key to keep making progress throughout the years.

At 13 years old your whole world is about to change & you will:

  • Become more civilized
  • You will sit down a lot more
  • You will be smacked with more responsibilities, orders and rules

And all of these can slowly make you comfortable, lazy & overtime make you loose your energy to want to workout.

Am I blowing this out of proportion & making it sound like your wold is gonna end? Maybe a little.

Truth is that if you always find a way to be active at a young age, you won’t have such a hard time dealing with having to manage school, social life & fitness (since it will be embedded in your DNA to want to move)

So if you want to build muscle at 13 years old: Constantly be active, eat a lot, rest a lot & master the basic bodyweight exercises.

It sounds simple & it’s because it is – the only thing you have to do is put in the work & have fun!

Simple Truth About Getting Results: It Takes Hard Work

Everyone wants to get stronger, get bigger & be lean but how many are willing to stop “wanting” and put in the work to achieve this?

Sometimes we need reminders or simple slaps in the face as I call them

Today I got a slap for you to highlight what it takes to really get results:

I found this text while reading the above 1963 old school Health & Strength Magazine

The mention of hard work will put them off immediately, yet it is the only honest answer to their query - Health & Strength Magazine 1963

“HOW MANY times have I replied to the routine query about a middle-age spread and spare tyre. The letters always start something like: “I find I am getting a middle-age spread, could you recommend some exercises to improve my waist, it is now 39in.” About 90 per cent of the people who write these letters are hoping for some magic to rid them in a week what they have taken up to ten years to acquire. The mention of hard work will put them off immediately, yet it is the only honest answer to their query. The paunch doesn’t appear miraculously overnight or from too large of a meal.”

Simple & The Plain ol’ Truth!

The goals you hope to achieve will not happen by doing some special exercise, or worse yet happen fast!

It Takes Hard Work!

Whether you want it or not, that is the only way!

So Stop Looking for Magic & Make things Happen!

I got more truth & tips from the old school that I will later share with you, but for now:

Don’t be the 90%
