Nothing wrong at all with having his look as a goal. When I was your age it was Tyler Durden from Fight club that everyone wanted to look like.

Please understand that you do NOT have to eat everything in sight to bulk. You're at an awesome age right now. Your natural hormones are going to be through the roof for the next few years. It would be a very good idea to eat a lot more though. If you're serious about it, log what you eat for a few days and see how many calories you're currently eating. Then just start adding to it. You're small now, which may mean that you're body naturally holds less fat. That's not a bad thing. It means you can eat a ton of food and not worry too much about fat. I wasn't that lucky.

Don't worry too much about what you read that taylor did or didn't do. If you add more calories to your diet slowly, then you should be able to start adding muscle without gaining too much fat. You're training needs to be on point, which is why its REALLY GOOD that you're hear. Most teenagers either eat plenty but don't train right, or they eat too little, and still really don't train right.

Ask, ask, ask questions, so we can help you get your training plan right to get where you want to get. We have a lot of experience around here. A lot of us wish we could go back to your age and do things better, so use our experience.

Sage words from all so far. Also keep in mind that at your age and size, there are only two supplements worth their salt, protein and creatine. And honestly, if you waited another 5 years to buy creatine, you'd probably be just fine. The combined lifting and nutrition experience on this board is staggering. Listen to the "old-timers" (aka been lifting 10+ years), they'll prevent you from making the mistakes they made in the beginning. Do some self-research to come up with questions, and most important, ASK THE QUESTIONS. Squeeky wheel gets the grease.

And keep two logs. 1 food. 1 for training. Trust me on this.

My Training Log

Personal tips that I've learned along my still short journey:

Leave your ego at the door.
Prepare. Showing up dehydrated, hungry, and tired will guarantee failure.
Be ready to fight for that grinder of a PR.
Listen and learn. Absorb everything you can, and assimilate that knowledge.

Top Gym lifts:
Squat: 415lbs
Deads: 440lbs
Bench: 315lbs

bulk and bulk, on about wasted time i wish i a had learned what a have learned know when i was your age i lifted weights on and off since i was 17 and made very little gains and gave it up then would start again,i didn't have the INTERNET and web sites like muscle and brawn with a lot of experienced and top lifters to learn from,so at your age with the help from the lifters you have here you have a very good start to it.So listen to what every one else has said and just bulk,you will gain little to no fat and Will be a beast at 21.

Eat a lot of carbs and consume a decent amount of protein.
Muscles will come with patience, dedication and time...
