Why are you switching again in a month Coop? That's a bad habit to get into. You will be using the same exercises for the most part, so switching really doesn't do much.

I really like a basic fullbody program, but the A/B split just gets the nod over it. The A/B split pushed hard and worked properly will give you great results.

Again I like the Reg park style 5x5 or 5x5-8 set rep scheme.

I agree with Jwood, especially the last part. A huge mistake as I see it of most people is thinking that theya re more advanced than they are. They think they are ready or need an advanced routine. THEY DO NOT!!!

THEY ARE STILL BEGINNERS!!! THIS MEANS YOU!

I am far more advanced than you are, yet was still using an A/B split up intil I was injured. Worked hard you can literally work your butt into the ground.

COOP, you need to read this thread if you have not done so.

Realistically you only need about 3-5hrs a week in the gym to do some serious work. There is more to life than hanging out in the gym, unless you work there. If you need more time then 3-5hrs a week then your not working hard enough when your there!

Only you can do this. Nobody else can lift the weight for you. Posting here does not build muscle. At your age and with your hormorne levels you have no excuse to not work hard and build muscle. We have your pictures of now to compare with.

Less talk, and more sweat is the prescription.

As far as reccomending some supps for you. I suggest Food, and Water, maybe a good multi, and some protein powder. GO!





One last question for you Coop.

Where do you see yourself as far as ranking yourself.

Beginner, intermediate, advanced?

Coop if you have been looking at switching just to ward off boredom, you might want to look at something like this:

"I have a whole book on this coming out called 5/3/1 for Powerlifting," says Wendler. "The biggest modification pertains to switching around the weeks and adding some heavy singles.

In the original 5/3/1 Manual, the weeks look like this:

Week 1: 3 x 5 reps

Week 2: 3 x 3 reps

Week 3: 3 x 5, 3, and 1 rep

Week 4: Deload

In 5/3/1 for Powerlifting, I switched week 1 and week 2 around and added a few singles, so it basically looks like this:

Week 1: 3 x 3, plus a few singles

Week 2: 3 x 5 only perform requisite reps

Week 3: 3 x 5,3,1, plus a few singles

Week 4: Deload

This system is superior for powerlifting as it includes the necessary heavy singles, yet by switching the weeks around and only performing requisite reps in week two, you never train heavy two weeks in a row."

will use this for round 3 on 5/3/1

coop i hope you can fully understand what GL and others are tryin to tell you here. you are way over thinking things when the truth is you don't need much of a program at all. eat train and sleep is all you should be thinking right now. hit the bench one day do squats another and deads yet another. if you're fired up or just plain bored mix in some curls and skull crushers. if you go to the gym and do some heavy benching then go home and eat steak and potatoes and wash it down with some whole milk i would consider that a good day.

my point is i don't want to see your head grow before your body grows. you need to keep this as simple as possible and take advantage of your youth otherwise i sh@t you not you will look back and think you wasted your time.
