    Hey guys, I'm a 15 year old boy, and this summer is really busy. I have tons of summer school work and SAT prep from 8 in the morning to 2 in the afternoon, so I can't always get much tennis played. I'm averaging maybe 4-5 hours a week.

    Anyways, I want to get as good as I can. I have to be ready for school by at least 8 AM. I'm planning on waking up every morning at 7:00 to work out for 30 minutes or so.

    What do you guys suggest? I know I'm young, so I shouldn't lift weights. Plus, I want to grow more. But I want to lose weight, gain some muscle, and become faster. This is what I'm doing so far:

    light jogging, ending with some sprints, followed by 300 jumpropes. Then I do pushups and sit ups for a few minutes. And after that, I just stretch until I have to be ready for school.

    What else can I do to build up my speed, endurance, strength, and lose a bit of this weight/fat?

    Also, what are some good wrist strengthening exercises? My wrist often hurts until I get warmed up.'

    Thanks a lot guys!

    Oh yeah, sorry for the double post, but do you guys also have an suggestions for squeaking out as many inches as I can? RIght now, I'm only 5'4. Do you think I can be at least 5'10 by the time I'm 18? I'm not really growing much these days. Does milk help?

    No, there's nothing you can do to increase your height aside from taking human growth hormone.

    well you can start lifting pretty soon if you make sure to have impeccable form

    id say at about 16 would be a good time. buy or find online Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe, read it, follow the instructions and dont change it around and youll get jacked.

    Lifting weights will not stunt your growth, but it may enhance it, theoretically, if you're at all interested in that. When squats are performed, HGH levels rise naturally. When you sprint for extended, or even short, periods of time, HGH levels rise naturally. When you get a lot of sleep, you optimize your HGH. Doing all of this, along with eating a plentiful and healthy, clean diet will insure you reach your maximum height potential. Other than that it's all genetics.

    Don't do "light jogging" except for a warm up. If you aren't going to lift weights, look up some bodyweight excercises. Ano has posted tons of links that can be found with a simple search that are excellent.
