    And this would alternate each week.

    Multi Vitamin
    Fish Oil
    Beta Alanine

    -To be 170-175lbs w/ 10% or less bf by June.
    -Currently 160 w/ 12% bf

    Body Type: Ectomorph
    Height: 5'10
    Wight: 160
    Age: 17

    Other notes: I do HIIT 1-2 times per week for 10-15 minutes each time. My maintenance calories would be about 2500 so I am shooting for 3000-3500 per day w/ 200-250g protein each day.

  2. I wouldnt do so much volume. I no this is not much but IMO at your weight and age i would just be trying to get very strong on the basics then change your routine when you see what your weak points are. Im almost your age and 20lbs heavier but with a bit more bodyfat than you and i am just trying to get very strong on the deads, squat and low incline DB Press because i think the upper pec is harder to get because its a low incline its hits your lower pec a bit as well.

    This is my routine atm
    Squat (8-12, 4-8, 4-8, 4-8, 8-12)
    Quad Exercise (8-12, 16-20) 10s<Static
    Hamstring Exercise (4-8, 12-16)
    Forearm Exercise (8-12, 12-16, 25-30) 10s<Static
    Donkey Calf Raise (16-20, 16-20, 40-50)

    Low Incline DB Press (8-12, 4-8, 4-8, 4-8, 12-16)
    Chest Exercise (8-12, 12-16)
    Shoulder Press (4-8, 8-12, 12-16) 10s<Static
    Tricep Exercise (6-10, 10-14) 10s<Static
    Seated Calf Raise (12-16, 12-16, 40-50)

    Deadlifts (3-6, 3-6, 3-6)
    Lat Width (8-12, 12-16) 10s<Static
    Lat Thickness (6-10, 10-14)
    Biceps (8-12, 12-16) 10s<Static
    Standing Calf Raise (20-24, 20-24, 40-50)

    What Movement I cant increase the reps or poundage every week will be swapped out the week after.
    Apart From:
    The Calf Movements
    Low Incline DB Press

    On the major movements where the rep range says 4-8 or 3-6 for the 3 sets try and get the maximum reps ie 8 or 6 on the first 2 sets. So if on the 1st set you do 8 reps donít try and do any more just stop there then on the next set try to get 8 reps if you cant keep the same weight for the week after if you can then increase the weight for the last set and keep that weight for next week.

    you could change the low incline db press to it with a bar if you prefer or even flat bb press if you really want to. But i wouldnt :P. This is just a template i use and i change my routine every workout but i keep a log to make sure im increasing the weight every workout on each exercise i do. I also would only do compound exercises because they are better for raw mass.
    Any questions just ask. Use the template and create a sample workout and i will help if you want.
    O and sorry for not doing capital I's all the time lol

  3. I've actually been lifting for about a year and a half. I started at 130lbs and now im in the 160s. I believe this routine has been working best for me since I put on about 30lbs in the last year and a half. I always switch up the exercises to keep my muscles confused. Once my gains start to slow, I will definitly try the routine you suggested. Thanks.

  4. no probs but il put the calfs as the last thing on leg day as when i do them they start shaking i wouldnt be able to do anything after that fiasco and its Delts no lats on your shoulders day n how come it says 18 on your profile but 17 on your post?

  5. Yeah, I usually do calves last on leg day. And the shoulder day the lats stand for laterals, such as side laterals...just my abbreviation lol. And the age question, I believe when I first made this I put I was born 1 year earlier, not totally sure lol, definitly have to fix that.

  6. lol remember to get in enough cals on your HIIT days so you dont burn a lot of muscle

  7. Yeah, definitly. Thanks man.

  12. Tell you what is good for your back thickness that i tried today. Rack pulls oh yes. Some might castrate me for saying this but cos i havent got a power rack in my gym i used a smith and my god i felt the pull in my lats. Also deadlifted 405lbs Dont you find that doing sldl's after squats kills your lower back? I had to drop em cos of that

  13. I usually don't feel it in my lower back, but this week I did because I didn't wear a belt. But the next day after SLDL's I can barely walk cause the hamstrings are so sore! Ill try those Rack Pulls this week and see how they do for me.

  14. I dont see the point wearin a belt unless your liftin VERY high numbers or have a injury because not usin one will just help build your core up

  15. That is VERY high numbers for me...
