I’m no one special. Just a dude chiming in with my take on the situation.
See, this explains where you made two mistakes at once. You went to several sites, so of course you’re going to get a lot of different opinions. And for some reason you wanted still wanted to “get more before hopping on a routine.” That makes no sense.
Pretty sure you’re referring to whatever other forums you’ve posted in.
In your first thread here, the majority of people recommended something like Starting Strength or Stronglifts. In your second thread, Aragorn (a sharp guy who know what he’s talking about) gave his opinion of the very different routine you posted. In this thread, you’re pretty much only getting grief because nothing seems to be sinking in.
As someone said before, everything works… and that’s why you’ll find arguments for and against every single training method. That’s why you simply need to try something for a while, pay attention to what happens, try something else for a while, and repeat until you gradually learn what your body responds to. There’s no way to get this other than time in the gym.
This is actually the best thing you could’ve done. Not necessarily the 4 or 5 day split, but actually sticking with a plan for a few uninterrupted months of focused training. And, holy shit, that’s actually the same advice that several people told you already. No surprise.
