Joined the gym 6 weeks ago, after about 8 years of only working out for a few months at a time before getting destracted. I started back up on the machines to get used to moving weight again. I've now been on a 3 way split (chest/back, legs, off, shoulders/arms, off, chest/back, legs, off...) for the past 4 weeks. I'm doing 2 barbell or dumbell compounds and 1 assistance per body part each training day (except arms). My final set on each exercise is to failure. I record that and try to beat it each week.
For the past 4 weeks i have. I've also increased my protein intake to about 180 grams/day (i weigh 210 right now). My protein intake prior to 4 months ago was at best 100 grams/day. I'd like to be at 250/day.
