this is my first post outside of trying to win a free supplement along with the other “lurkers”. i’ve been reading t-mag for a few months now and i think there are some really experienced and knowledgable people here.
i’m 6’ 3" and weigh 215 lbs. I’ve only been lifting for about 6 months and have put on almost 30 pounds by eating everything i see, training as heavy as i possibly can, and getting plenty of sleep. Everybody i know can’t help but to comment on how much bigger i am.
Here’s my routine.
monday: shoulders, biceps, stomach
Standing Military Presses, Side Lateral Raises, Rear Lateral Raises, chinups, ab pulldowns (not sure what those are called)
Bent-over barbell rows, Lat Pulldowns (In the front), Seated Cable Rows (using a v bar), pullups
squats, seated calf raises, leg press, straight leg deadlifts
thursday chest, triceps
flat bench, dips
I do most exercises for 3 sets with as much weight as i can handle for 5-7 reps. I’m not sure if this is the best way to split up my muscle groups. I’ve heard that i don’t want to work chest and triceps the same day because after doing bench my triceps will be too tired to train properly. Any suggestions are appreciated. I want to make the most of my time in the gym.
