    Basic answer to basic questions??






    Hi all,

    Newcomer here.

    Would like to pose a few questions to you all....are you sitting comfortably?...then i'll begin....

    MASS! We all want it..how do we get it?
    I find it hard to sift through all the contradicting suggestions. As far as i know its 3-4 sets x 6-10 reps.?
    1. Should it be the big compound moves, or burn the muscles out with more different exercises?
    I know you have to eat huge,healthy calories and proteins etc.

    2.Should the moves be heavy and a lil slippy? or strict and lighter weights?

    3. How long should it be untill some gains can be seen?

    I have given up in the past from not being happy with small gains..

    If anyone is interested, I'd love to post my routine and diet to have it looked over......anyone??

    4Last but not least,( sorry if im sending all the pro's to sleep)My front delts seem sore and burned out all the time. I feel them more than my chest during bench pressing. Any ideas?

    Phew!!!!
    Feels good to vent those questions!!
    Thanks in advance to all who take the time to answer.

    Hello from another Aussie.

    No expert here, so I can't offer too much advice,
    but stick with it! Don't give up!!

    I'm very lucky to be getting good results with what
    is probably a below average (in quality) diet, and lack
    of sleep, but it still takes commitment.
    Art.
    If not actually, then potentially.

    in according to the front delts question, sticking up your chest might be able to solve it.. how long before you can see changes? depends on your diet.. as for the training, check out gopro workout it seems to have a very good feedback...

    Lift big, eat big, and rest.

    6-10 is a good rep range for mass.



    1. Should it be the big compound moves, or burn the muscles out with more different exercises?

    Definitley compound movements.



    I know you have to eat huge,healthy calories and proteins etc.

    Yup, this cannot be stressed enough, proper diet/nutrition will make or break your gains



    2.Should the moves be heavy and a lil slippy? or strict and lighter weights?

    You should always use proper form, do not compromise your form for a heavier weight.



    3. How long should it be untill some gains can be seen?

    Very difficult to answer, but if all is done correctly a newbie
    should see some very good gains the first couple of months.




    4Last but not least,( sorry if im sending all the pro's to sleep)My front delts seem sore and burned out all the time. I feel them more than my chest during bench pressing. Any ideas?

    What exercises are you doing for chest?

    You may want add in a decline bench press and/or change things up from time to time with DB exercises. If you add another three sets to your chest routine you might not feel the need to work it twice a week.
