This website is for those who want to look great and feel great. Anyone can be healthier, have more energy, sleep better, and feel better about themselves through bodybuilding. Bodybuilding doesn’t have to be expensive or take a lot of time. My focus here is on workouts the natural bodybuilder can do at home with inexpensive equipment. Don’t be fooled, home workouts do not mean easy workouts and they can be just as effective as the gym. This site is FREE and there are no “members-only” sections or newsletters to buy, its my way of giving back to the sport that has given me so much. I don’t encourage the use of any supplements or the purchase of any new equipment, you can build a fantastic physique with just a cheap used set of dumbbells.
I disagree with Mark Rippetoe on many things but one thing we agree on is that for teens, getting sixpack abs may not be the best goal. Your teenage years are when you are growing rapidly and an attempt to be ripped and vascular will probably interfere with your ability to gain muscle mass. The teenage body does not want to be vascular. Many teens do not yet have the core musculature to have visible abs at reasonable bodyfat levels. It’s unwise to drop down to crazy low bodyfat levels in an attempt to see these marathon-runner abs. A much better plan is to keep at healthy bodyfat levels, say 8-12%, and work on getting stronger overall with a well rounded workout plan for a few years. Thats not to say that its OK to be fat, its not! Being obese doesn’t help you gain muscle but Getting rid of a belly is a great goal but for a teen, getting vascular 8-pack abs like Jeff Seid is a poor goal.
