alot of questions,,,,,
how much is too much. how many times a week should i work out???? how long should i go for????? how many sets and reps should i do on each lift???? should i do abs everyday????? On my workout routine i usualy do about 5 or 6 diff lifts, but the thing im tryin to figure out is how many sets and reps i should do. on my reps i usualy have 4 to 5 but the sets is what im iffy about. one thing is that i dont feel like ive done a good workout if i havent gone till failure or pretty close. is that overtraining????? suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

One question mark is sufficient, thank you.
Pick a program, stick to it. That'll tell you how many sets, how often, etc. If you don't feel like you're training hard enough, you probably aren't. That means more effort, not necessarily more sets or reps.
You weigh 160. If you eat, sleep and squat, you'll grow. Don't fret the minutia.

That's what i was going to say before i got distracted and resolve beat me to it.
Figure out your goals, find a workout that will help you accomplish that, and then stick to it. After a while you will be able to listen to your body and answer all those questions yourself.

Monday: chest back and core
Wend: legs and core
Fri:shoulders arms and core
You can split it up how ever you want and what makes you feel more comfortable. You could even add in a stretching day. Which i recommend actually. You dont want those muscle to stay tight and one day pull or even tear a muscle.
Sets and reps. Sets i would keep at 3 or 4 reps i would keep at 8 to 10. Before you start working out you should figure out what your max is on all lifts this weigh you can figure out how close to get so you can hit failure on that rep or even sooner is fine..... for example if my max is 245 i will start my 1st set at 145 to warm up then gradually get closer and closer to 245 making me come even closer to failure. You might get 215 3 times but you prob wont get it 5 times. you get what im saying? Do some research on here and im sure you will find all sorts of great examples of workouts you can do. click on the workout log and check out some of the workouts people are logging and you will be good to go. Hope this helped brother and welcome to am!

start w/ 5x5 and stick with it. you'll gain more with that routine + food more than 90% of bb'ing routines. its a great program what focuses on the basic compound lifts

I agree with Resolve. Pick one and stick with it. Keep a training log. Include your weight, diet, supplements and details about each days workout. In a few years, you'll have learned a lot about your body and look back on your first training logs to laugh at your mistakes. Whatever type of workout you choose, use strict form from day one and you'll be much bigger than if you hadn't. Don't let your ego ruin your progress.

Ego = problems (for weights at least )
