I started lifting with a pair of dumbbells my Dad got me for my 11th birthday. I did this on and off and when I was 12 my dad and brother joined a gym. My mum got me some heavier dumbbells for my 13th birthday so I used them about 3 times a week just doing curls and the simple exercises I knew. After about 4 months of lifting them my dad joined me to the gym and we went there every week about 3 times.

For my 14th birthday I got a multi-gym off my mum and dad which was convenient as the gym closed down shortly after. So from then I have been lifting seriously for the last 6 months but I have been lifting for 18 months. I have gained 14lbs in the last year and lift over double what I started.

I decided to read magazines and came on Bodybuilding.com for information and now I have great knowledge of the sport. I wanted to write for Teenbodybuilding.com so others who are my age could do the same as I have.
