I'm 13 90 pounds and I'm a dude. My friends all star football players can lift their body weight 120 or close to it. I'm a wrestler and I know I need to be able to lift my weight for certain moves. I can bench 15 to 20 pounds, I can do at least 5 push ups and curl 10. Any tips to gain the muscle mass and strength before next wrestling season which is next November. (Ps I know I'm pretty pathetic , just wanna be normal please help me reach my goal)

To be honest there isn't a definite way but what I did when I first started out was pushups until failure every morning and dumbbell curls every night to tone my body. Then I focused on building muscle mass with heavier weights on all my exercises.

I hope this helps btw if done right it'll only take a month,more or less.

You're pretty young. If you only weigh 90 lbs it's probably because you're growth spurt isn't finished yet. If that's true, your body isn't making the correct hormones for heavy lifting to do any good. I would recommend bodyweight movements like pushups and pull ups to build strength, then move to weights as your body matures.

Ps you are totally normal. I'm a teacher, and many kids your age are the same size as you. Your body grows at it's own rate.

Stay committed, set realistic goals, eat right, and beat those goals each time you work out. You'll be fine. Btw, you're quite normal.

Keep working at it, once your testosterone starts kicking in your bench max will go up - Also, eat more lean meat, veggies and nuts after your workouts. You're still young man, some kids start developing faster than others is all.

*more THAN...with an "A". Remember, "then" means "next" (they both have an E)
