Beats mine

Monday - TRIS AND CHEST

Tuesday - Call in sick at work as stiff from over working muscles

WEDNESDAY - Cardio aka walk to chippy as surely used up too many calories from MONDAY and couldn't get out of bed TUESDAY

THURSDAY - Open bottle of vodka in disgust at eating chips (this equates to arm curls)

FRIDAY - LEGS AND CARDIO (aka dancing in clubs and getting wasted)

SATURDAY - LOST DAY

Sunday - Drink crate of beer as not looking forward to training MONDAY

I started my training regime this week, I had an operation a few months back on my back which meant I could only lie down for around 4 weeks, so naturally I put on weight.

Monday - Run 4/5k
Tuesday - Run 4/5k + situps
Wednesday - Run 4/5k
Thursday - Press ups and situps
Friday - Run 4/5k
Sat and Sunday - Off

It depends what you are aiming for, mine is mostly cardio as I'm aiming to lose weight, yours looks OK for a good all round workout.

PS. food and sleep pay a big part in training

Yeah its an all around work out, mainly for strength and toning up(this will factor into how many reps i do). I dont need to lose weight but would like to build up my stamina. Yeah my food and sleep is messed up! need to sort that out asap.

Yeah its pretty good - get the shoulders in aswell though. personally i dont mix muscle building with cardio but everyone has their own preference. And of course lots of protein if you want to see results with the muscle building.

dont be a wimp , basically the days you leave certain musles alone , all there doing is gathering water , thats what makes them look big , the muscle takes everything it can , so dont let the muscle get what it wants , keep breaking it , then it will feed off what it can , most people's muscles are just water retention , the way your body works is like this , say you break a bone , where you break the bone it will mould back together and be twice as strong , same as muscles , your best bet is to do every muscle every 2 days and every time you work out aim to add more weight then last time , trick the body , so everytime u work out add half a kg , its not much but its not much and you will trick your body , then you will get stuck on a weight one day , then take a week off , let your body recover and eat **** loads of meat , gurenteed when you go back you will be able to lift that last weight , then you start again

dont be fooled if you want big muscles , you have to lift heavier weights and thats how you do it , thats why housewives always lift the same weight , because they dont want to look like the hulk

i 100% agree lift big to get big. if even you can only manage a few reps its alot more effective.
#16
also use cardio as a warm up/down and remembr eat , lots of eating , im very good at puttting muscle on ( dont like to blow my own trumpet , but im very **** good ) only thing is alot of the time i cant afford too , but if your serious do what i said and eat alot of food thats high in protein and low in fat and you will see the difference in no time , but it can be very expensive and the food can be very boring , its ok if youve got a good cook that will sort you out , but try eating chicken after plain chicken , thats what i find the hardest , eating all the all the chickens , but if you want to see results that are perminant , do what ive told you , i aint worked out in nearly a year , i may have a beer belly but im stronger and have more muscle then 95% of the people in your gym and id quite happily prove it

I would say:

DAY 1 - Chest/Triceps
DAY 2 - Quads/Calves
Day 3 - Off
Day 4 - Shoulder/Traps
Day 5 - Back/Biceps
DAY 6 - Off
DAY 7 - Forearm/Hamstring/Abs

Also go very heavy, maybe try 5X5 training for the compound exercises. With strength comes size.. Ever seen a small powerlifter?

I would also say don't work the same muscles too frequently. They need rest to grow. If you don't rest enough then you'll overtrain. You don't grow in the gym, it comes down to the eating and sleeping.

Personally if you want to gain good muscle then I wouldn't stick to eating low fat foods. You need the high carb intake to grow. You should be eating more carbs than protein overall. Carbs are easy though so adding potatoes, pasta, rice etc. to a meal isn't hard to eat however you should be eating a lot of carbs. I try to get around a kilo of carbs a day and 600g of protein and I get very good gains.

Okay I just noticed your doing BICEPS AND BACK AND CARDIO on sunday and tuesday, it might be better for you to hit shoulders+forearms on sunday might be a good idea to work your rotary cuffs too.

I do a similar routine but I always do around 20 min on the treadmill then hit weights its important not to neglect your cardio, I dont really want to get big just toned and defined I suppose it all depends on your end goals and what you want out of your body just remember hard work always pays off.

Dont do chest and arms on the same day, chest should be paired with back if anything, would be better if it was a concentrated workout on chest though IMO.

Bi's and Tris is a good day as suggested by others, loads of supersets that can be done and tons of different exercises. However you should leave atleast a day between doing chest and then doing arms from my experience.

Legs is a BIG day and would suggest that you have a rest day after because for the first couple of times it'll do you for a few days.

Shoulders is also an important day and your able to incorporate a small shoulders work out into a back day.

Cardio and Core should be done with every work out IMO mix it up, from long runs, to interval training, circuit training, kettle bells etc.

Heres what Id do:

Week 1-5 Conditioning (Medium to light weights at 14 reps for 3 sets then to failure on the 4th EVERYTHING) Whey Protein and Load on creatine

Sunday - Chest and Back
Monday- Legs and (Big!) Core [include cardio!]
Tuesday Shoulders and Back
Wednesday - OFF (Means off, nothing as to rest the muscles)
Thursday- OFF (Only Core)
Friday - Biceps, Triceps, Forearms
Saturday - OFF (Core and Cardio if manageable)


Week 6-10 Mass Same workout Heavy weights low reps pushing to failure on last set {Whey Protein (should up servings IMO), Creatine and energy supp 'Noxplode'

Week 11-16 Strength Same workout (Medium weights over time delays holding everything for 4 seconds on the way up and way down pushing to failure on last set.Noxplode and Whey protein, creatine course should be finished


Week 17-22 Cutting and toning (Try and keep same schedule, down the weights to just below medium not extremely low and do 20 controlled reps, add alot more cardio in and start to take fat burner). Noxplode, and Low fat protein

As has been said in previous posts, make sure your diet is sound and youll achieve your goals easier. Keep a weekly note of weights, and where you felt yourself struggle, try and find someone else with the same goals as yourself to work with as this makes it easier

Don't forget nutrition is 80% of any training plan,what you do in the gym is the other 20%

If you can work back with chest then your doing your back workout wrong..

Back is a major workout and has many exercises which hit the nerves and stress the muscles a lot so working with another big muscle such as chest is a crazy idea.

Working triceps with chest is the best mix as you have already worked and warmed your triceps during the chest workout, then you finish triceps with no more than 8 heavy sets.

Rest after your back and leg workouts as these hit your body the hardest.

Hence why back has two days paired with other things. agree with everything else apart from chest and tris being the best depends what exercises your doing though, as you can combine chest and tri's through a few different exercises
#23
I walk to the chip shop every day and some days i have it delivered when its too heavy to carry
#24
I hit chest and tris on the same day back and arms on another day
#25
The reason why i did was cos whilst doing chest you can also work your tris in some exercises

Any one recommend food plans?
