Is This A Good Starting Workout?

guys, im 16 years old and just recently started weight training. I lift weights about 3 times a week. My question is, I do 4 sets of 15 reps of 30 pound dumbell curls. I also do bar bell curls, a bunch of different curl exercises and 200 sit ups each day. Then the other days I work shoulders, and bench. I also bench with dumbbells 4 sets atleast 15 reps.

I like to run atleast 1 mile each day on the treadmill. So for you weight lifters is this a good way to start I mean ive seen a change in defintion. But what else can I do to really start seeing a change in size?

im not really on a strict diet, but I do cut back on the fatty stuff I used to eat, I eat a good amount of fruit in the morning and drink alot of water each day. I drink this protein/weight gainer shake from GNC before I work out and when I go to bed. Ill try and cut back from 15. Any more tips?

Try taking your protien and creatine after your work outs, thats when your muscles need it the most

Creatine? Isn't that like legal steriods? I heard that creatine wasn't reccommended because it boosts your muscle-production, but if you slack off and don't consume enough creatine, your muscle mass will deteriorate noticably quick...

Then again, if you stop taking protein the same thing will happen. It all depends on the amount of money and resources you have, really.

agreed, if you can do 15 reps you aren't doing enough weight for seeing gain in mass.
(i stole that from an interview with arnold and have always followed it)

Well then you better not slack off then huh? I mean if you slack off your going to lose the muscle anyway, if your using creatine or not so, well just dont slack off.
