  3. google 5x5 routines

  4. So what should I do tho for chest back bi and tri shoulders and legs

  5. core movements, compounds....squats, bench, press, deads, rows, etc....you wont/dont need much isolated bi and tri movements

  6. Will that just come with the core movements

  7. Look into either Starting Strength by Mark Ripptoe or a 5x5 program like Strong Lifts. Personnaly I thing Starting Strength is where you should begin with.

  8. But I know I'm strong and can do a lot of weight but no size

  9. strength will come before size....5x5 is a basic beginner routine, it covers all the basics......

  10. Don't worry about isolation exercises . Size is built from core exercises. Plus secondary muscle groups will get plenty of work. You can crush your biceps on back day just by using varied grips for example .

    hmmmm...not familiar with those particular muscles

  15. Lol well my arms idk how to spell I'm sorry

  16. lol....try out the strong lifts 5x5 for a few weeks, trust me it works great...

  17. Okay I will thank you a lot I appreciate it what should I do tho how many works out per muscle

  18. google strong lifts 5x5 and it gives you the training breakdown

  19. Okay thanks again

  20. 5x5 string lifts are only 3 workouts ..? Is that what it is

  21. no! there is 2 workouts that you alternate every other training day....squats being done every workout....

  22. Yeah it says squats bench barbell row
    Then it says squats overhead press and dead lifts and it says to only do one set of 5 dead lifts

  23. correct....5x5 5 sets 5 reps...

  24. Okay and this is a good workout you where saying and I do this every other day

  25. i believe its 3 times a week, once youve outgrown the stronglifts you can start the madcow 5x5

  26. Okay thank you and about how Many weeks should I do this work out for

  27. id give it a good 6-8 weeks and check progress

  28. Honestly enough I never tried the 5x5.

    I'm thinking of trying it to help gain mass & build up some strength. Hopefully the intense work outs will aid in some fat loss...
    I've been splits for a while, but ready to change it up.
    Another option he could do is a split with squats, deads, military press and back rows built into his program as well....

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Look up SL5*5 on stronglifts.com. Run it for atleast 10weeks. Start light and follow it strictly. Work on proper form because later as you get more advanced and lift heavier it will help. After that you can either run it again or move on to something more advanced. Weilders 5/3/1 is a great one to move onto. After all that you and you've gained some strength and size you can cycle between strength and volume(GVT). The GVT is for later but will help pack on some mass.

    The main thing you need to remember is you have to eat. Try to eat clean...mostly lean meats and vegs,eggs,fruits,and natty peanut butter. Each week increase your diet by 500 cals till you find the sweet spot. Increase cals too fast you might pack on a little fat at first.

    Read,learn and listen. It won't happen overnight so be patient and put in hard work.

  32. Thank you I appreciate it and I will talk to my boss and see what he says cause he helps me out too

  33. i see some good recommendations on simple laid out programs. but the length of time to run them is short by about 6-12 months. someone this new does not need to be switching around workouts every weeks or months. they will never lift hard enough with doing that.

    IMO even advanced lifters need to follow programs for 6-12 months to see optimal results. this whole program ADD is part of why people dont see results.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

    He can simply rinse and repeat with the program. They are not necessarily to be done once and walked away from. For example usually a 5x5 program will be based off a persons 1RM or the likes with weekly progression. At the end of of the program you can revaluation your maxes then repeat with percentages based off of your new standard. Most of these programs have that "change" in program to "keep your body guessing" inherently built in. eg would be stepping up percentage weekly, Deload weeks etc. Also, after 2 or so months changing from. 3 day a wk program like starting strength or SL to say a 4 day a wk program that is still following the same style programming like to another 5x5 is fine and not the same as jumping from one style to a completely dif style.

    Otherwise, yeah I see your point and agree in general.

    5/3/1 with the big but boring accessory work and lots and lots of food. follow the program exactly as written for 6 months and come back and tell us how you did.
