I'm a skinny 14 year old weighing about 50 kg, and I need to find a good workout routine (doesn't matter how long). I'm looking for a workout that targets my biceps, triceps and core. Can you suggest any good workout routine, and possibly diet as I need I'm extremely skinny?


  • What about legs? Are you only after trophy muscles, or do you want an overall program? Do you do any sports? Plan to?

  • To be honest, for now, I feel I need to concentrate on my core, abs, biceps and triceps. As for sports, I play basketball and football quite a bit and go running at least once a week. (swimming occasionally)

    What sort of fitness goals do you have? What is your PRIMARY concern? Do you mainly want to get bigger muscles (bodybuilding)? Do you mainly want to get stronger (Powerlifting/Strongman)? Do you mainly want to be explosive and have more stamina (athletic training)? Is there a specific sport you want to improve in? Is there another primary concern entirely? Knowing this is critical to offering an appropriate answer. Jun 19 '19 at 16:44
  • For now I'm just focusing on increasing muscle mass.

  • As a beginner and a young guy, almost any consistent lifting combined with a good diet will provide results... emphasis on "consistent" and "good diet". To get started watch some Youtube videos and pick and choose the things you enjoy. personal recommendation: BUFF Dudes

Weight training is safe for growing children so if you want to do weightlifting, any free program would do.

If you are more into bodyweight stuff I'd suggests joining a gymanstics gym.
