Hello everyone, this is my first post here and I would like some advice on a beginning training routine for building muscle. I have trained before (although not in an ideal way) but have been out of the gym for a while and have lost alot of weight since then (currently 140 pounds at 5 11). I have done alot of research since then.
I know the main factors are nutrition, rest, focusing on compound movements, and progression. However I’m still having trouble just deciding on a routine to follow. So far I have considered a somewhat modified starting strength routine:
pushup 2 sets (cannot do dips due to an old injury)
curl 2 sets
pullup 2 sets
I’ve also considered doing a very basic push/pull/legs routine in the 6-10 rep range doing mainly compound movements at about 10-12 sets per workout. Does anyone have any advice for me on a routine I should be following? Any advice on the ones I have listed? Thanks.
