Hi, I want to start working out again and was wondering if this routine is appropriate for a beginner? In it Chad describes taking set to near failure and it's hard for me to know my limits since i'm just starting again. Is this routine to complicated for a newb and should i do something more simple?
Here's some more info about me:
Sex - male
Age - 35
Height - 6 foot
Weight - 230
Body Composition. - about 30% Body fat which was taken on a electronic scale 3 weeks ago when i weighed 246
less than a year of total training
Total years seriously training. 0
8.Strength stats. - Did some routines a while back, got to squat 285 3x5, deadlift 315 1x5, Bench 185 3x5, Press 105 3x5
Current routine - none
Goals: - Get rid of the fat and bring out some muscles. I just want to look good, don't care about the numbers on the bar. I know that's general but that's exactly what i want. I would love to look like a bodybuilder. I don't care if I'm squatting 135 lbs as long as it ends up making my legs look muscular I'll be happy. I do understand the importance of strength thought.
Diet: pretty good right now. I cut out carbs almost completely. Lost about 17 lbs in 3 weeks and feel very good. I think i have some gluten allergy or i'm just super sensitive to carbs, because since i cut them out I feel awesome.
Thanks for any input
