    Cool When will I grow into my body?

    I am 14, but will be turning 15.I am extremely bony, and no matter how many times I do pushups my arms dont get any bigger.And when I lift weights, my arms get extremely thin and look very disgusting.I am very tall, though very thin.Can anybody help me?

    In a year or two you may get a big dose of testosterone & be able to get muscle mass.

    Do not take the bodybuilding supplements as a teen. It could mess up your body development for the rest of your life.

    If by next year you are not seeing the results of more natural male hormones check with your doctor.

    Some guys start at 12 or 13 & some at 16 or 18. Everyone is different.

    Good luck

    You could see a nutritionist if u want. I too was extremely bony back in the days , im 19 now and Im still thin but ive gained some weight and no longer have the "anorexic" look. I suggest drinking 2-3 cups of milk a day it has REALLy helped me and remember to eat as much as you can.

    My guess is that you have longer bycep muscles, so you don't "bulk" as well. Plus, as you grow, you muscles are growing and stretching, too. Food goes right through you. My brother is the same way. He had to go to a nutritionsist. Don't worry, you body will settle eventually.
