Hey guys, this is my first post here so I figure I'll introduce myself first off. I am 19 years old and have been working since about December 2007. Within the last few weeks I have decided to take my diet alot more seriously and train more seriously but my problem is sticking with a program.
Over the years, I have bounced around from routine to routine mainly following advice from BB.com. I have tried everything from Rips, Madcows 5x5, 5-day split, 3-day split, WS4SB, WS4BB, Max-OT, Iron Addict's SPBR, and some programs I've designed for myself. Throughout these years I have managed to grow 2 inches vertically and put on about 40 pounds-ish. Currently I am 6'4" 225 pounds. Not bad for the average world, but we're all here to be above average, am I right? Anyways, here are my CURRENT lifts:
(Note, these have fluctuated and were higher at one point, but college and getting carried away with the party scene first semester really hurt my lifts/progress)
OH Press: 115x5
Anyways, my main goal is to pack on mass and some strength along the way (I'm currently bulking.)
I posted a similar thread on BB.com and they all told me to run Starting Strength. However, it seems my quads/glutes respond pretty quickly to training and are still pretty big from my 3 years of rugby in high school. The fact that I'd be squatting 3x a week leads me to believe I would be building a disproportionate physique. Big legs, small upperbody = not what I'm going for here.
Now, I know my numbers are pretty weak for my training and like I said before, my main problem is sticking to a program. So, can you guys lead me in the right direction as to what program I should pick. I have a VERY severe case of "Workout Routine ADD." Is a bodypart split the way to go? I see so many people on bb.com preaching Starting Strength as if it is the end all do all of workout programs. Is it impossible to gain strength on a bodypart split? Will I be "overtraining" on a bodypart split? I hope you guys can offer some insight on what my next step should be.
P.S. I did read the stickies and found alot of useful info in them. I especially enjoyed the "How the biggest got that way" or whatever it was called. I am just looking for personal insight into my problem, and what my next step should be.
