[quote=“BoStros”]My current nightly workout is -
1 - 25lb dumbell curls - 2 sets of 25 reps (per arm)
2 - I create my own “ghetto” barbell using a single 25lb dumbell and do 5 sets of 20 rep “barbell” curls
3 - 25lb dumbell shrugs - 4 sets - 20-20-30-30
4 - 200 sit ups (straight)
I really have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to working out. I am 14 and really have no idea what amount of weight I should be lifting either. I’m 5’10" and though I don’t know how much I weigh, if I had to guess, probably 120-130lbs. My legs grew faster than the rest of me. haha Thanks in advance.
Good job on starting to workout.
Just a few questions that might help the folks on this board help you -
It might be helpful to let everyone know what workout equipment you have around the house (you listed some - is this all you have). That way if you can’t get to the rec center or YMCA or can only purchase a little equipment at a time - some folks could probably give you a more informed opinion about what you can do during your workouts to make you stronger or faster with what equipment you have available. I don’t want you not to workout because you don’t have what some would consider the right equipment to do specific lifts or your parents don’t have the time to haul you around town or can’t afford to buy you a bunch of new equipment.
Do you have any back, shoulder, elbow, or knee problems or pains? Have you ever injured any of these joints?
If you are going to workout at home - would you have a workout partner or would you be working out by yourself?
How many days per week (on average) do you have to workout and how much time per day to do you have to workout?
But most important what do you want to get from working out and how are those goals related to becoming a better pitcher or baseball player?
If these goals are related to a problem that someone has told you about - what did that person say to you and was that person a coach, parent, or fellow player (how qualified were they to identify the problem)?
