    Hey! Is the way I'm going with working out right?

    Hello! I've recently started working out at home due to not going to the gym in months due to school, I recently started with ironborn, powerup, 1 min HIIT, then before-bed workout, I'm 14 and I do them like
    Workout, Workout, Rest, Workout, Workout, Workout, Rest that's my week routine
    Are the programs I picked pretty good for starting? I'm on the 3rd day and resting today, But I do hiit and before-bed everyday anyways, What do you think of my routine, Should I change anything in it? My main goals are removing 7KG of bodyfat and replacing it with muscle, The bodyfat in my stomach is too much higher than what I need it to be, So I'm also trying to fix up my diet but my mom gives me limited choices

    Welcome to the Hive komi .
    If you want to work on your bodyfat, you should have a talk with your mother about your diet or just silently reduce your intake a fair bit and use the full arsenal teenagers have against their parents to keep it that way.
    Your workout regimen looks legit. A bit on the overdoing side of things, though.
    7kg of stomach fat cannot be undone in a short period of time. Your advantage is your age. Let it work for you. Set some targets. Short term and long term. 'One baklava is enough baklava' , 'Want to look like Arnold by the age of 27' or 'Want to look good, when I stand in front of the mirror naked' and stick to them. If motivation runs out try to replace it with discipline. But foremost, work on that diet of yours. Losing weight is a game of in vs.out and it's easier to control the 'in' side than the 'out 'side.
    All the best and good luck

        I have never watched my carbs, so don't think that's an issue. In my experience it boils down to being very active. Me at your age was never sitting around except when at school in a classroom but would walk everywhere, be outside with friends. Had a job delivering newspapers every morning and evening edition. My friend would deliver coal in a hand cart, I'm 69 and kids in my day were all lean, carbs didn't make us fat and meat was a luxury, you could say we was semi-vegetarian. School leaving age was 15 in my day, then get a full time job.

        Before I retired at 65 I worked for a builder as a labourer, I also would workout a lot and 8 hours a week Aikido/Kenjutsu, I'd eat a lot but kept lean.

          Overdoing it is when you're just doing too much at a go, without enough consideration of what you want to achieve and how you will achieve that goal. You might consider reading this as you are doing three programmes at once. Something else you might consider is choosing a training plan. This doesn't mean that you can't do a programme at the same time - that's up to you.
          You said that you want to lose 7kg of fat and replace it with muscle. That suggests that you are not overweight but just looking at toning and strengthening your body. In that case, at your age, I wouldn't fret too much about what your mother is feeding you. You said that your mother gives you "limited choices" but then you still do have a choice about some things. Look at what choices you have and see how you can make the best ones. Read about nutrition - not diet. All too often, "diet" refers to some sort of restriction, rather than simply what we eat. Not all carbs are bad; not all meat is bad; not all vegetables (except for eggplant, but some people think it's okay...) are bad. We need to consume salt; we need to consume fat. Proper nutrition is a complex thing. There are several articles about food is the guides section that you might like to read, as well as articles about building muscle. Have a look.
          Finally, what incidental exercise are you getting? Do you walk or cycle to school? Do you have the opportunity to take any longer walks (or runs) on weekends?
          Fat loss and muscle gain are slow processes. Accept that and work towards it as a long-term goal. In the short term, pick something that you want to be able to do and can't right now and work towards that; for example, can you do a proper push-up? If not, set that as your short-term goal. If you can, look at doubling the number you can do now - or some other measurable bite-sized achievement. Small achievements are encouraging and keep you going.
          I think I've written way enough now! Good on you for starting on this journey and I hope you stick with it. Feel free to ask anything else, we don' bite.

            Thanks so much for the info bro! I appreciate it alot, (Also whats wrong with eggplant? is that just a shlonga bonga joke?)
            Yeah thanks for putting these guides to my attention, incidental exercises? Well I don't own a bike, school is pretty far but I walk a good amount of the road there then take a cab, But mostly I am inside a whole lot due to covid and stuff.. I used to not go to school at all only go for exams due to some stomach issues when i was 6-12 But that was completely cured now and I go 2-3 times a week
            Thanks so much for the info bro, I appreciate it so much

                My young friend.

                The simplest advice I can give you is to decide on a program or style of exercise, and then do it. And then do it again. And again.

                I've found that it's all about consistency and sticking to your positive habits. So it's all about taking the first step. Good luck with this!

                  komi sure was different, no phones so you had to go to friends home and then you had to be outside, sometimes nobody home.. TV was only broadcasting between 5pm to 10pm.

                  My philosophy is to eat normal and be active all day. I lived in the North of England till age 20, there was no over weight youth, there was no snacking or just eating for pleasure and no fast food places except the Fish 'n' Chip Shop, they also sold meat pies but eating from there wasn't a regular thing. Indian and Chinese take away came around in the late sixties, a treat to have curry sauce on rice.
