    I guarantee you overtrain within 2 weeks...

    why the double chest workout on Monday? As if your chest needs that much volume...

    what makes you obssesed with this exercise selection. This looks very much like the crap from the Arnold Encyclopaedia of Overtraining Manual.

    Thats about 30 sets per workout. IMO... doing that many sets requlires a great knowledge of ones own body, and personally, I never think anyone needs that high amount of volume.

    Judging from your lifts, and not trying to be a dick at all, but your still in the novice stages of your bodybuilding, and I believe for the first year or two especially, you routine should be very basic, simple, and heavy with moderate to low volume (I only do a TOTAL of 4 sets per bodypart and Im doing quite well).

    Read my last post Kenwood. IMHO... and it is only my opinion, take the next year to do a program like MAX-OT and build you a solid basic foundation before you attempt to tackle a high volume workout like that.

    Yea, that last workout seems a lot better than what you started with. There's no reason to be doing that much at such a young age.

    Kenwood is young and wants everything to happen really fast.

    Dude, just put together something really basic with compound lifts and focus on form and eating more food. You are 15. You will grow.

    Start small. If you throw everything at your body when it will adapt to anything, you will be fucked when you need to progress. Besides, camaro is wrong about your first program, you will overtrain by the second day, not second week.
