Okay so i'm about to turn 14 in a few days. I workout every 2 days ( 2 rest days then workout ) I don't do heavy weights because i dont want to stun my growth. I work on legs and butt, ( 180 fire hydrants 180 donkey kicks half of each with 2.5 kg weights ) and 180 kick backs. Ill do 100 jump squats ( 2 reps ) 120 Bulgarian splits and sometimes 300 bridges with 2.5 kg weights. Today i'm supposed to workout but I don't really feel like it today. What do i do? I don't want to lose muscle! I'm a female btw :)

You need to learn the names, positions, and purposes of all the major muscles, and how to control each group. Then there are specific ways to exercise to grow, reduce, or maintain a muscle. For example, to grow a muscle you work it to exhaustion and then let it rest for about two weeks. So you write a schedule that allows you to keep track of each muscle, what exercise you are doing for it, and when to give it more attention.
