Lurker from Seattle

#1 Postby dietcoke » Sat Jan 14, 2006 10:02 am

Hi everyone!

I've been looking around this forum for a while, and decided to finally join :D So...yeah...

Basically, over the summer I was lifting weights every other day, swimming for an hour and other cardios for 30ish minutes. After school started, I stopped...

Now I have water polo 10 hours a week (2 hours a day Mon-Fri) and I run for 30 min. in the morning. I'm pretty sure my straighth hasn't gone DOWN, but I do know that I could be stronger, espicially as I am one of the smallest kids on my team, and we compete at National/International level.

I would also like to gain MUSCLE weight (I weigh 95-105 lbs., or 43kg-47kg). I'm about 5ish feet tall.

Basically, I would like to get into the pool when we go to JO's (Jr. Olympics) and not feel like I am making the players play man-down.

Hi welcome to the forum. Concerning your weight and intention to put on weight, what is your age and gender? You'll definitely be able to get help here, no worries. Try checking out the general bodybuilding section or beginners section, and maybe start a topic there, explaining your current routine and what you want to achieve. Your gender won't affect things that much, but might give people a better impression of your build relative to your weight, but your age would affect the advice that I would give you
