see that's the thing, while i'm certainly not new, i'm nowhere near his advanced level. any recommendations?


whats your body type and what kinda goals you gunning for? i can probably point you in the right direction with a bit more info. im doing a 3x a week full body routine right now and making better gains then i did on a 5x a week program

MON
squat
bb bench
bb rows
db press (shoulders)
*

WED
deadlift
bb incline
lateral raises + shrugs
leg press (moderate weight)

FRI
squat
military press
db bench
pullups
*

the stars* are where i would throw in some kind of iso exercise for tris and bis whether they be curls, extensions, skull crushers, chins, cg bench....whatever, you get the point but ive been working pretty much based off that model with some changes here and there

^ That is probably overworking. Squat and deadlift's are huge compound exercises and both use over 70% of your bodies muscle groups so 24 hours to recover isn't enough. Also if you are doing high weight low reps ont hose exercises can be taxing on the CNS (central nervous system) so it is unlikely you can give it 100% effort when you have them just 1 day in between each other. Don't need to do chest 3 times a week either most I do is 2x a week. I wouldn't squat/DL more than once a week at a heavy weight(relative) and vary or decrease the volume of the chest exercises (maybe add some flys, decline instead of flat benching motion)

* it does vary from person to person some people can tolerate that amount of volume but most can't but at the end of the day listen to your body

^ Jim Stoppani who is a pro BB/trainer, senior science editor for muscle & Fitness has you doing basically same 3 full body routine in his strength n size program.. But only has u doing it for 3 weeks and no longer.. Basically gets your form good and helps u build some strength.. Wouldnt do it for any longer though then move on to a different split..


* If u are looking just for size and strength, look his 12 week, 4 phase routine up!

decline bench 3x8
flys 3x8
dips 3x8
rope pulldown 3x8
flat bar pulldown 3x8
behind the back tricep extension 3x8

day 2=back bi
pulldown 3x8

bent over rows 3x8
barbell curls 3x8
seated dumbbell curls 3x8
cable rope hammer curl 3x8

day 3 off

day 4=legs
squats 5x8
leg press 5x8
leg extension 4x8
leg curl 4x8
seated calf raises 5x10

day 5= shoulders, traps, forearms
dumbbell shoulder press 3x8
upright row 3x8

day 6 off

and repeat


that's my routine as of now going for lean mass (recently added 3 sets of deadlifts to my back days). i just really hate going to the gym a few times a week and only doing 12-15 sets, it doesn't ever feel like enough for me.

I'm having anoher problem of losing "loose skin" around my stomach and lower back, it's been about 3 years since i lost alot of weight. only up until now I wanna do something about it, I've been doing more cardio, eating clean and working abs there's a slight change for only about 3 weeks? Any other way I can tighten it up? A friend was recommending me to some sort of cream to tighten it

@biglocal other than surgery and creams and stuff like don't think there is much you can do. You can always
try gaining some muscle to fill out that skin ;-)

I think I'll try the cream, I'm not that desperate and resort to surgery, anyone know what's the name or brand
of the cream?

Are u asking just about jump squats or u asking for everything? If just jump squats, use a small weight and just 2 sets of 10-12 right in the beginning of a leg workout.. If u are asking about everything, what is your goal? To get bigger? Lose weight? Get lean and shredded?

if it doesn't feel like enough, then you aren't pushing enough weight

I would run early in the morning and early in the evening when the sun isn't out, and my diet would be 3 meals all were smaller meals that would get me 1/2 full, I wouldn't touch rice unless it was my cheat day the carbs I wouldve got were from whole wheat bread, but other than that I would just be eating smaller portions and avoid really fatty foods

I would run as long as I can, and if im starting to die out I'd walk, eventually each day I go running I Try to push myself further So it depEnds on how out of shape you are. But I would start off by running/walking a mile and if a mile gets easy I'd increase the distance.

What's your weight and height??

I actually lol'd irl. You were 128 lbs hahahahahhahaha. Thats the average weight of an 8 year old boy or an average woman. Those "gains", if you can even call them that were beginner gains. You could've lifted rocks and you still would've seen strength and size increases.

you know what's even funnier? You have been working out for 15 months and have progressed from an amazing 128 lbs to an even more amazing 140 lbs you a fucking embarrassment to the human race don't ever post here again you know absolutely nothing


im 5"6. i don think im supposed to weigh 170lbs.

and dont tell me what to do. my PT knows what he is doing. i dont need to prove myself to some faggot over the internet. im seeing awesome results, friends and family have noticed a huge difference.

and btw, it was 128 to 140 in a span of 7 weeks. gtfo.

scotty, im too lazy to post what excerises i do, but that was just something i did one week. other than that im really happy with the drastic results.

5 lbs down in a week and a half



Lets say thats 10 days. 5 pounds x 3500 calories (aprox a pound) = 17500 calorie deficit over 10 days is 1750 calorie deficit every day thats cray. Either you weighed yourself at different times of day or you lost a bit of muscle. Might wanna slow down or you'll lose too much muscle and become skinny fat

Im assuming you aren't morbidly obese, in which case losing 5 pounds a week is ok

good job though

You dont have to listen to me Im just telling you that you don't know anything and that is 100% fact not opinion. Go keep wasting your time and money at the gym just don't come spreading your fucking retarded routine. Gaining 12 pound in 7 weeks is real good man. Maybe gain another 10-20 and you can not get blown over by a strong gust. And by the way if going from 128 to 140 pounds is awesome results then either your friends/family are lying to you or they are all midgets. Have fun at your next Freestyle Friday man

Tomorrow is my last day of Physical Therapy for my knee. It's been 2 months since my injury and I can definitely play sports again however it still feels awkward, and my kneecap pain is still there because of the piece of cartilage that chipped off.

I need to meet with another knee specialist to see if this knee will heal itself or if I need surgery....surgery would suck because I just finished a 6 week rehab session I would hate to have to start from scratch again so soon.

Buffalo Bills till I die.
