1. HELP!!

    I am wanting to start a 5x5 training routine and after reading of threads i am sure it is what i need to do. I want your input in how i should set up my routine, how often i should train, whether or not i should split, and what exercises to include the ones i have been looking are recommended for mass gain which is my goal and they are

    back - pull ups
    back - deadlifts (increases free flowing testosterone by 15%)
    biceps - barbell curls (cheating)
    biceps - chin ups (weighted if needed)
    calves - donkey calf raises
    chest - barbell bench (increases free flowing testosterone by 8%)
    chest - dips (body forward, legs back)
    hamstrings - straight legged deadlifts (ask Kai Greene) - forces your hamstrings to act as the main stabilizer muscles.
    legs - squats (raises free flowing testosterone by 20%)
    legs - the sled (a.k.a. leg press)
    shoulders - military press
    shoulders - upright rows
    triceps - dips (weighted if needed, body upright, legs as straight as possible)
    triceps - close grip bench
    overall - overhead squat (best growth hormone booster)
    overall - clean and press

    I really need help with the organisation of what i need to do as i have a terrible habbit of overtraining because i am simply addicted, and just like eating pringles once i start i just cant stop.(I have home gym this is the only place i can really get advice from so spare no detail)

    regards to Chubs for recommending threads and to suncloud for his thread on mass gaining in a nut shell
