Becoz i have quite a bit of fat round the mid section lol , and round the top of my legs and assl lol (Well wot i think is fat lol , no one else says theres a lot there)


    I also dont eat hardley anythin to do with sugar , eat plenty of rice , pasta , and eggs , i want to try n eat more protien rich foods tho lol , but with me being only 18 and tryna save up for some new decks its hard for me to fork out the kinda money u have to for such foods , is there any cheaper alternatives that offer good protein besides supliments and protien shakes ect.. (im talkin foods here) i already know bout eggs and stuff ..

    Wow, that is really not a good routine. It's horrible, actually. Way too much volume, way too high of a rep range for every exercises. Way too many exercises...

    Why don't you cut the exercises down, and work in a lower rep range? And what is up with all that shit for shoulders, and then 2 things for back?

    And are you really saying you do all this shit every 3 days? Or do you have some kinda of split going...

  3. #3
    lol , im not all clued up on this stuff mate so if its bad then i apologise but yeh thats wot i do every 2 days usually 2 days anyway.

    i thought itwas a good routine because i can notice really positive results but , u guys obviously know wot ur doin lol , il try n see wot i can doo to sort it out and make it a better routine

    i do se wotu mean about that tho il defo need to spread it all out

    I agree take that workout and throw it in the trash.....read the online journals and training area to get some ideas for a good workout.
    I highly recommend all IronMagLabs supplements!

    What are your goals with this training program?

    How many sets of each exercise are you doing?

    How long does a workout take you?

    You looke plenty lean to me. You could pack on a bit of muscle mass, but you're definitely a healthy lean. Check out the diet section on this site. Get started by reading this:

    A beginner will make gains on just about any program they do, regardless of how poorly it is setup.

    I know you don't want to get massive, but adding some muscle mass is going to improve your figure. Take me for example. I am by no stretch of the imagination massive, but I think I have a fairly well rounded figure.

    Getting to be massive is not something that happens by accident. It requires smart training, and a massive amount of healthy eating. It also takes years.

    So, I would classify you as a bodybuilder, but with a size limit in mind. That is totally acceptable. Check out my thread on designing a full body routine, as it appears that is what you prefer, and read the section about tailoring it to a bodybuilding routine:

    No problem. You seem eager to make a positive change in your physique, and consequently your health and well being, and you also seem willing to learn. That is all you really need. Your head is definitely in the right place.

    Good luck sir!

    Each workout is done on a separate day. I perform HIT style workouts. That is, I goto complete failure, and then perform a rest-pause set beyond that. I'm not talking about failure like most do. I mean, if I get stuck half way up on my last repetition of a squat, I sit there resisting the weight until it actually pushes me back against the rack, even if it takes 30 seconds. I usually have to lay on the floor in a pool of sweat for a minute after an exercise like the squat.

    Most people perform higher volume workouts with less intensity. That is also perfectly acceptable. I have done that too. Whatever floats your boat. Like I said in the article about designing a full body routine, if you are using higher volume with lower intensity, then you should be performing 2-4 sets per movement as opposed to 1-2 like I do.

    Hey, your routine looks pretty good. You will probably have to push yourself quite a bit closer to failure than you were with your previous routine to reap the full benefits. I hope it gets you some good results. Keep us posted on your progress so we can help you break past any plateaus that you may reach.

    Keep lifting, keep eating, and most importantly keep learning!

    You also mentioned in your first post that you were stuck with free weights. Free weights are superior to other forms of exercise when it comes to developing a strong, functional physique. Just because they cost less doesn't mean a thing; the hype for machines is just that - hype, and it means nothing. I'm not saying they don't have their place for certain goals of certain people, but for all intents and purposes as far as I'm concerned, I won't even touch machines.

    Damned straight. Not to mention the perks of working out at home. I miss squatting without a shirt or shoes and blasting freakin' folk music if I felt like it.

    Really focus on your diet. I can pretty much pack on mass doing any competent protocol, as long as I make sure I'm eating enough healthy food.

    I'm not expert when it comes to nutrition, so check out the nutrition section of the forum for advice on that. However, I'd say to drink only water and maybe skim milk. Juice, as far as I know, has almost as much sugar as pop does, so it's really not that good for you. Make sure you eat tons and tons of protein of course, and try to eat six small meals a day. If you change just those things, you should be well on your way. The easiest thing is to take many baby steps and your whole diet will be changed completely before you know it. Good luck.

    The sugar in fruit is not the same as the sugar in soda. Furthermore, juice and fruit contain phytonutrients up the ying yang. I definitely recommend getting at least a serving or two of fruit in each day. The only time juice might be an issue is when you are trying to cut to BB competition bodyfat levels. I can get to single digit territory just fine eating fruit and drinking juice myself.

    I would say that's a good idea. Just try to replace some of the carbs you would be getting from juice with sources of complex carbs:

    Brown rice, barley, oats, lentils, chana dal, whole wheat pita, whole wheat bread, etc.
