Give this program a try. I see that you are only 16, so you should really start to get your diet in check, as that is prob 70-80% of looking like a BBer. I did this EXACT program when I was your age and had phenomenal results- I entered High School at like 105 lbs and graduated at about 210- and I was totally natural in regards to AAS- never touched them till i was about 22. Anyway hear is a program i really can gurantee you will get results:
Flat Bench or Incline Bench Press:
Warm up 2 Sets @ 15 reps (very light weight)
1 x 8
1 x 6
1 x 4
1 x 2
1 Burnout set - as many reps as you can pump out, but get at least 10 reps
Superset this with 1 Set of Flys/Cable Cross overs ....etc
Shoulders: Same format of Sets and Reps
Exercises: Overhead Presses
Burnout set is supersetted with Lateral Raises
Triceps: Same format of Sets and Reps
Exercises: Lying Skull Crushers or french presses - whatever you want to call them
Burnout set is supersetted (SS) with cable pushdowns
Back and Bi's
Same format of Sets and Reps
Back: Same format of Sets and Reps
Burnout Set is SS w/ Lat Pull downs
Bi's: Same format of Sets and Reps
Straight Bar Curls
Burnout Set is SS w/ Hammer curls
Legs: Same format of Sets and Reps
Squats or Leg Press
Burnout Set is SS w/ leg extentions then go str8 to leg curls
Now, You have three workouts, but you should be working out 4 days a week so you are repeating one of the 3 workouts each week. I would go Mon, Tues, Thurs, Friday. Take Wednesday and the weekends off from weights- do cardio if you want to. Basically you are doing one main lift for each body part and then adding a superset immediately after your last set on the main lift (the burn out set). You will get great results with this routine. I would keep the set/rep format the same for all bodyparts, but you can change up the exercises however you like- just make sure your main lift for each body part is a good heavy compund movement. Essentially you will be doing 8 sets of each main lift (if you include the 2 warm ups and 1 burnout set) and 1 superset of an isolation type exercise after your burnout set. I had amazing results with this program when I was young, and natural. Add some creatine and glutamine to your supps during this program and you should have no problem putting on at least 15 pounds in about 8-10weeks- if your eating right. I wouldnt have taken the time to post this if I wasnt sure about the effectiveness of this program- I seriously recomend it.

I don't mean to attack individual workouts but I am sticking to my conclusion that the OP should be doing LOWER volume based on hiw stats and current routine.
09-28-2009, 09:36 AM
can you put it in order for me then? and whats your routine?

The kid is 16, I definitely would not recommend DC training at his age.
Starting Strength is a great program. I also recommend Jim Wendler's 5 3 1.
PM for more info.

That's a typical DC workout taken from DoggCrapp. If you want to make it four days you simply go back to day one, then start next week on day two and continue.
knowing that I have never thought of DC before ten minutes ago. What I would do is my favorite excerise for each body part, but rotating excerises every week.
So does this sound right?
DAY ONE: Monday
Chest--- Flat db ----5 sets not including warmup till failure. as many reps as poss
Shoulders---military-----same as above specs.
Triceps---skull crushers. -----same as above specs
DAY TWO: Tues
Biceps-----bb bar curls same as above specs.
Forearms-----no idea WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Back width NO IDEA WHAT DO YOU THINK
Back thickness NO IDEA WHAT DO YOU THINK
DAY THREE: Thurs
Calves---standing calf raises not including warmup 5 sets till failure
Quads----Squats. not including warmups never reach failure
Hamstrings-----romanian DL's no including warmup 5 sets never reach failure
Day FOUR: fri-
Chest- flys 5 sets not including warmups till failure...
Shoulders lateral raises. 5 sets not including warmups till I fail
Triceps--- I call them lawnmower start pulls. don't know the real name but imagine trying to start a lawnmower with a pull cord.
does this sound right?
my w/o's would basically be cut in half...

you need to go troll over at intensemuscle for a while....dont ask questions, just read every sticky over there....then read logs...then if you still have questions ask....but i will warn you...they hate newbs and the board in general has a pretty bad attitude towards anyone whos trying to learn about dc. I actually had a guy tell me i wasnt ready for dc....i was 5'9 230 with abs....ha...his stats were 6'2 190. But since i didnt know about dc how could i POSSIBLY be ready to learn about it?
09-28-2009, 10:59 AM
Last question mooch...
I do not have abs thats for sure. But I'm getting there. I've been lifting since january. you said you put noobs on it and they were fine and had great results. So I should be good to do this even though I'm not ripped correct?

M- chest, shoulder, tri, Back width, back thickness - workout A
W - Bi, forearm, calves, hams, quads - workout B
I agree beginners could do well on the basic principles behind DC. Hit each muscle 3 times in two weeks. But you have to know how to lift properly and with correct form.
I am currently cutting on DC after coming off a broken hand in March. Getting leaner on restricted calories and lifts still going up. The traditional notion of lower weight and higher reps to cut lends itself to lower muscle density somewhat. Your not taxing your muscles as much by lifting max weight for 6-8 reps therefore recruiting more muscle fibers. DC does both. Lift heavy with low reps in a series of rest pauses for most exercises which gets the total reps into what would be a "high" rep range. Cutting is diet and cardio more than loads of high reps.
