Too Many Workouts to Pick From

Hello to everyone in T-Nation, I started working out and some things are wrong. Frist, I do not have a workout program (too many to choose from). Next, whenever I workout, I don’t feel the pain and/or burn I should feel. This is especially true of my chest. I have looked into the Charles Atlas workout program and many more. I would like some help in order to progress.

Just make sure the weights and reps are heavy and enough that is a challange and you are constantly doing more weight or reps.

The first structured program I did was Total Body training by Chad Waterbury and what I would recomend for most beginers

Those links posted were very good.
Personally, I like Chad Waterbury’s (CW’s) Anti-Bodybuilding Hypertrophy (ABBH). You can find really good spreadsheets of his programs here:

Honestly, I really think you do not need to feel any pain or burn to make progress. At lest, not all too often…
However, if you don’t feel fairly tired after you have done a relatively intense squat or deadlift session, then maybe you aren’t working hard enough.

Can you give us some more information, like your height, and current goals?
