One important thing that is commonly missed while working muscles is the squeeze! When you reach the peak of the movement you need to squeeze and hold the muscle before going back. For example when you do a curl dont just fling the weights up and down. You need slow and good form and when at the top......FLEX! I am a believer in heavier weights with less reps for building bulk. I prefer free weights also, but there are some machines at the gym I add in....especially cables. Wait til you are older before spending all the money on powders and suppliments. Now is the time to concentrate on form. Dont forget the old standards...pushups, crunches, and pullups. Good Luck!!
