These are 3 good examples, but it might be wise to ease into one of them out of the gate until you get used to a fullbody.

Check out our Classic Physique Challenge for a mountain of more info:

Glwanabe might want to chime in on this.
Looks solid to me.

Just let us know what you end up deciding to do, and we can go from there.

I like the Reeves program a lot. It is a great scenario to get into fullbody, and allows a good conditioning phase. It is a great plan to stay on, or to use as a primer for other programs. It is a very adaptable program from a lot of different aspects.

Ask away with as many questions as you may have.
