Default Workout Routine advice

I'm 22 years old and I've been working out on and off for 3 and a half years, I realise that I'm in the beginner stage since I was a bit inconsistent with my training in the past, and that full body is the way to go as a natural trainee.

Is the Real Results Classic Physique workout optimal for muscle gain? I was on a 5x5 program before this, but I felt that my body needed a change after 6 months on the same program, so I figured why not opt for the same type of program (fullbody) but with different rep ranges?

my goal is muscle gain at the moment (aesthetics), will this program be good for my goal?

this is the program:

Classic Physique Workout

Perform Monday, Wednesday and Friday
Squat 3 x 8-12
Dumbbell or Barbell Row 3 x 8-12; Deadlift 3 x 5 * see note
Barbell or Dumbbell Overhead Press 3 x 8-12 ** see note.
Barbell or Dumbbell Bench 3 x 8-12
Barbell or Dumbbell Curl 3 x 8-12
Dips 5 x 10 @ Bodyweight. Try for sets of 10, but do what you can.
Barbell Calf Raise 3 x 15-20
Abs

any advice would be appreciated, thanks in advance!

Training this way worked pretty well for Steve Reeves, Marvin Eder, Reg Park et al. I am sure it can work for you too.

just remember diet and rest are just as important as the routine you choose. Train hard, rest lots and eat properly (for your goals) and as long as you are progressing each week on the lifts then you will be fine.

Consistency and progression are the most important thing.

It's a good method. There are no magic programs. There are decent ones, and this is decent.

Results come from patience, strength additions, not missing workouts and plenty of food.

Good luck and smash!

This looks pretty solid to me. For prettier arms though I think there's no harm in adding 2-3 sets of skullcrushers or pushdows instead of dips to assist slightly in growth if the dips turn out to be too much. I myself have used a full body routine very similar to this and made excellent progress in terms of body composition and strength, however developed a lower back issue as well as overall soreness and fatigue as the weights got heavier and switched to training each muscle twice a week instead of three as it suits my lifestyle and needs better. Just something to think about down the road.

I will always recommend this article to a beginner http://www.muscleandstrength.com/art...ous-gains.html

I'm sure that your workout is decent but these are designed for beginners. And this article is by BendTheBar himself. And there's so many different ones to choose from you can't really go wrong. I recommend the Fast Start if you're goals are just to look good.

Again all credit is to: BTB. The man knows his stuff.

I've actually been using the Fast Start A/B workout routine from the article Adamite1114 posted, since I like its layout and volume! (you know how they say you have to like a workout to believe in it and make it give you results)

I was wondering: do the 4 x 8-10 sets have to be progressive sets or are they all straight sets? And do I add weight whenever I reach 10 reps on each of the 4 sets or is 3 sets of 10, and the last set of 8 enough?

I know I said I was going to use the Reeve's physique routine, but I kind of like this A/B style of training more and I wanted to try out the higher type of volume
