He listens to cousin "Blake", his training partner. He thinks those male fitness models look "huge". Although I'm only 16, I'm much more developed than him and anyone else at school. He's still so stuborn to listen. I tell him to do deadlifts... he doesn't go "as heavy" (he told me he really didn't go heavy). He trains at a pathetic college gym where "Blake" and the college girls train at, instead of our campas gym, where we rock 130-pound dummbells, broken mirrors, loud music, and no distracting women. He really needs to nut up. Got any advice for me to tell him?
Welcome to the forum.

One thing I've learned is that it's hard to change others with words. My best advice is for you to do the right thing, train hard, grow like a weed, and then he will start listening more. The bigger and stronger you get, the more he will ask questions. If not, he really doesn't have goals that will amount to anything.

In the mean time, get him hooked on progression of weight. Show him quotes or whatever by pros, or videos of Ronnie Coleman moving heavy. Weight. At least if he's moving heavy weight, he might come around, or make gains despite his program.
