Help With Routine....


Im not even going to list my old crappy ignorant routine that was pretty much.

Mond - Chest(bb)/Tri/Shoulder
Tues - Back/Bi
We - Legs
Thur -Chest(bb/db)/Tri/Shoulder
Fri- Back/Bi
with a bunch of exercise for each body part and ALOT of reps…it really sucked.

5’9" 199lbs. Do I cut? “Bulk” more?

I just started the Bill Starr 5x5 routine inorder to bulk on some real size.

Is this the right routine or is it more of a sport specific routine? Like a football player routine?

“5’9” 199lbs. Do I cut? “Bulk” more? "

That all depends on your goals.

and as for your routine. Its great to know what ur doin on each day but without us knowing what exercise your doing for each body part and set/rep/weight info. no one here can realistically comment on ur routine.

If the old program sucked drop it. If it was you not bringing the intensity fix that.

Sure follow the Bill Star 5x5 its packed muscle on many a people or pick a good program here follow it be consistant and work your tail off.

you look really small for 199.Im gonna go ahead and say your diet isnt real clean and that you probably dont work out as hard/often as you could.

and he meant pick a program off this site

Try ABBH… should remedy your sucky routine problem.

Click on Waterbury and find it or use the search function, you’re a grown boy.

LOL! … that you said you were not going to list your crappy routine!

I find that with weight training, less is more, but only if the weight AND intensity are high.

Dude, he just listed that he trained 5 days a week…his frequency obviously isn’t the problem.

To the OP: Do the 5x5…and check out Madcow’s site if you haven’t already. It has the best info you’ll find on 5x5-based routines.

Eat big, follow JBs 7 habits, and drive the weight up on all your lifts. Putting on muscle is pretty simple, especially when you haven’t built much yet.

What do you mean? How could the weight be high but the intensity low? Intesnity = % 1RM.
