Mat D.

Background

When I was 14, I joined a gym to help improve my fitness for boxing. Although it was ok, it was one of those gyms where there are hardly any free weights and most of it was running machines etc. After going here for about 6 months, I decided that I was wasting my money so I stopped going and started working out at home - running, cycling, doing pressups, situps, pullups from the doorframe. Soon afterwards, I managed to find enough money to buy a cheap bench, barbell, dumbbell and some sand-filled weights. These were fine for a few weeks until I discovered a gym hidden away nearby. I started going there and I made some big gains. Unfortunately, it closed down so I was back with the weight set in my room. I've purchased some steel weights since and I will continue to keep everyone posted on my progress. I figured that by writing for Teenbodybuilding.com, I could help out other teens around the country. Please feel free to e-mail me about anything!Name: Mat D.

  • Which Supplements?

    I use Creatine for 6 weeks at a time and then stay off for 2 weeks before reloading. I have never noticed any bad side effects and it gives my muscles a massive pump even the day after the gym and after working out I recover really quickly!
