In brief: You are young

working out hard may mean you're doing good things or doing really bad things.
If you're eating crap, that won't help. You have to delete to eat healthy and become physically fitbefore your start to build muscle.Advice fromA professional trainer will help. Don't overdo your exercises. But do them steadily and progressively--pain is not necessary to become physically fit.

In brief: Possibly

It could be but i would get a personal trainer to see if you are doing something wrong.
You need to focus on dietary changes also to make sure you are taking in enough proteins at the appropriate time in relation to the weight training.
