Buildin Muscle...Please help me!!

hi im 14 years old and lookin to start working out my arms, legs, and chest. I was wondering if i start workign out will the fat turn to muscle or does it burn the fat off or what? I am going to be buying equipment and need some advice what to get. I was lookin to get a bench bar, dumbells, and bench. I don't really know what i need like to work out my chest and stuff. I don't know really any good routines for my age. I really want to get into shape.

    if you can afford it get a squat rack/ power rack.

    Fat cant turn to muscle or vice versa.

    For a good routine just look at some of the begioner routines on here and the other boards

    Welcome to MT.
    Fat cannot turn into muscle. Gaining muscle will help u burn more fat than u usually would. Although if ur looking just to loose weight, u must do cardio (running etc.), its more effective for fat loss.
    Depending on ur budget for a home gym, the equipment will be different.
    however, i do encourage you to join a gym. Being a beginner, joining a gym will aid u alot more than working at home. At the gym, there will be people who know what they are doing, and they can help u around and show u exercises. u will learn alot more and understand risks etc.
    14 is quite a young age, so i recommend you work with light weights till about 16. u dont wanna cause premature ossification in ur bones (stunt ur growth).
    This site is useful, but its always best to have someone who knows how to train with u while ur training as a beginner.

    ROFLMAO John. I've just re-read what I had said. There's sleep deprivation at its finest (out all night the previous night and followed by a rough day at work) . .

    14 is a pretty young age to start working out with heavy weights. I'm 19 now and i started when i was 16....somehow i got a feeling that it did kinda impared my growth just a little. 14 is in my opinion too young for lifting serious weights bro. Take it from someone who's been there....start light...really light...you have all the time in the world.
