You’re 15, how many routines could you have tried?
Now is the time to make sure you’re getting your basics right. Use a simple split that includes squats and deadlifts, then eat plenty of good food and get some quality sleep.
You’re in school from about 9 til 3, so have your breakfast, then it shouldn’t be too long til your first break- eat then, then again at lunch (how small is your bag? Surely you can fit two meals in? If not, buy a bigger bag), then when you get home from school- the evening shouldn’t be a problem. You could even get up a bit earlier and fit in two meals before school.
I think if your form is good etc. on your key lifts then 5x5 would be a step in the right direction - but due to your age I have to question your experience and thus the quality of your form. Get someone’s opinion on this (i. e. a professional), then if all is good then crack on with 5 x 5, if you still need to brush up on your basics then go higher (8-12 or more) to make sure you’re getting your practice in.
Read as many articles as you can, but remember your basics.
Good luck buddy.[/quote]
Routines… Arnold’s 6 day, 5x5, 4 day, 5 day, 3 day, upper/lower and a push pull split… yeah I sound like an ass now because I aint really give any of them time… I think Arnolds 6 day worked best though.
Also, I eat at break and lunch then pre workout. I eat like 8 times a day though… just need to up it all.
Lots of eggs, meat, some fish, nuts, 2 protein shakes and cottage cheese is my daily protein. For carbs I will include 1.5cups of oats at break fast, 1.5 cups of brown rice at dinner… other than this I dont really know where to get my better carbs. How much more should I have??
I’m assuming you live at home so your parents feed you in the evening, and thus are limited in the volume you can consume- a solution that worked for me until I went to uni was that I’d eat the meals my Mum cooked then if I wanted more meals in order to get bigger, I’d buy the food and cook it myself.
Just be imaginative if you want to up your calories- peanut butter in your porridge (amongst other things) is a good one. If you have omelettes or whatever use 5 or 6 eggs instead of 3 etc., just make a conscious effort to up things- find healthy foods that you like and add them into your family meals and things.
I actually have my own food, all bought for me as my family buy all processed shit they can spend the goods on me.
My dinner is normally like 1.5 cups brown rice, broccoli, carrots and shit loads of chicken. and 5-6 whole eggs??
