Depends on alot different stuff.How much do you weigh? How often do you work out? What is your bf%?How old are you? Just depends bro.Thats just some off of the top of my head, there are many more to consider.What are your goals? I'm a novice like you are and asked about the same thing. You got to give these guys something to work with before they can give you an answer. you came to the right place bro. If you can't find the knowledge here, you won't find it. Good hunting and peace!
