Hey everyone, I’m 21 and skinny (5 11, 140lb). I want to look to build muscle and get bigger and stronger. This is really something I am motivated to do and stick with for the long haul. However, regarding which routine a begginer should start out on, I don’t know which route to take. I’ve done alot of researching so I know the fundamentals of diet, rest, and everything but there are alot of different routines that claim to be the optimal way for a beginner to train such as Fullbody, push pull leg, upper lower, 4 day split, 1 time a week, 2 times a week, etc etc… It seems that for a beginner frequency over volume is stressed often along with just the core lifts. I came across this routine, what do you guys think?
squat 3 x 5-8
bench 3 x 5-8
rows 3 x 5-8
Deadlift 2 - 3 sets 5 reps
shoulder press 3 x 5-8
chinups 3 sets to failure, adding weight when i can do 10 or so
you take a day off between each session, taking 2 days off every now and then. So is this a good way to start off? Thanks
