    i am just going in to high school, but i have become very interested in gaining muscle/losing fat.
    I had read most of the stickys, but alot of it sounds like it is aimed for people older than me.
    I assume i should just eat healthy and lift whenever i have time?
    any other hints?
    am i too young?
    btw
    i am 5'9" 125-130.

    Why do you have to be older? Just start a basic lifting routine, and don't do it whenever you have time, do it and MAKE TIME. 5'9 and 130lbs is a good starting place, you should check out how much body fat you have, and read through some of the stickies. Just be careful, eat right. I was lifting weights at 14, but I wasn't eating right, so I never really saw results. You need to understand what your body is consuming already, and how much more or less you need for your goals. Everyone wants to lose fat, and build muscle. Which do you want to concentrate on more? Building muscle will help you lose fat, and boost your calorie use throughout the day. I think the only reason it is easier to make a good diet with exercise at an older age is because you don't have parents to report to ;)

    1.i kinda have a lift routine, but it is at school. I play football. but we do have a home gym
    2.according to the cheap ass scale at my house i am in the 13-18% range.
    3. eating right would probably be my biggest problem too. im a big snacker.
    4. i am not fat right now, so i guess muscle would be more important to me.

    football is kind of hard to get a good lift in bc i am a freshman.

    What kind of equipment do you have at home? You can start a basic lifting routine with a cheap bench and a few freeweights.

    Don't worry about snacking, worry about what you are snacking on. You can buy typical beef jerky or better yet, have your parents buy it for you and tell them its healthy for you. Beef jerky is pretty filling in my opinion. :)

    Also low-fat yogurt is another good snack.

    Look at the machine's instructions. It should tell you what workouts it can do. Also, don't you have a weight lifting class at school? Sign up for it. Your teacher will explain how to do various exercises. Don't worry about being a noob. When I was 15 in my first weight lifting class there was absolutely nobody that truly knew wtf they were doing.
