Been doing weights for about 2 months now with the goal of trying to increase muscle size and so far so good, have gone from 67kg to 74kg in that time
Anyway i'm overly keen about the whole thing and am wondering if I am spending too much time at the gym or doing too many sets etc? Thought i would post my basic workout structure and see what you think:
Height: 178cm (5'10")
Weight: 74kg (163lb)
I go for 3 days on, 1 day off, 3 days on, 1 day off, like this:
Day 1: Chest & Biceps & Abs
Day 2: Legs & Shoulders
Day 3: Back & Triceps & Abs
Day 4: OFF
Each day will spend about 2.5 hours in the gym and do about 4 or 5 different excercises per body part, and 3 or 4 sets pyramid style for each of those exercises.
Bench press - 12x?, 10x?, 8x?, 6x?
Incline press - 12x?, 10x?, 8x?, 6x?
Dumbbell Flys - 12x?, 10x?, 8x?, 6x?
Cable Crossovers - 12x?, 10x?, 8x?, 6x?
Press ups - 12x 12x 10x
Barbell curl - 12x?, 10x?, 8x?, 6x?
Hammer curl - 12x?, 10x?, 8x?, 6x?
Sitting Dummbells - 12x?, 10x?, 8x?, 6x?
cba to post days 2 and 3 but you get the idea :P about 15 - 20 sets per body part.
Just wondering about this because im an ectomorph and I hear that ectos should spend more time resting and less time training that most people, but im really keen and enjoy going lots!
And yes im eating lots
