I’ve recently started lifting with some friends of mine, and I have a few questions. One of my friends has been lifting for a few years now, and recommended a program for all of us. However, he is a much bigger guy with a lot more experience. I’ve been reading some articles here on T-Nation and I am having trouble deciding on a good program for me.
I’m 18 years old, 5’8" and 130 lbs. I’m a pretty small guy and I’ve never really played sports or anything, so I’m in that great shape.
My program is:
Monday: lower body workout
Tuesday: Upper body
Thursday: Lower Body
Friday: Upper Body
The program calls for 5 sets of 5 reps per exercise with relatively high weight for my strength. I’m mostly interested in getting bigger and stronger, but size is a little bit more important to me. I was wondering if I should stick to this program or move on to one better suited to my own goals.
