I'm just starting out after a long break from bodybuilding.
I was lifting part time at best for the most part so was only really mucking about, but I'm now doing at least 3 days a week.
Here is my routine so far and might I say, I've definitely noticed a difference to my lean muscle in the mirror even after 2 weeks! So I'm happy so far.
Heavy bench press, max out at 8 reps. 3 sets.
Dumbell press medium weight, 15 reps. 3 sets
Dumbell flys heavy weight. 8 reps. 2 sets
Shoulder press, heavy weight max out at 10 reps. 3 sets
Dumbell upright shoulder flys medium weight 15 reps. 3 sets
Sit-ups x 200
Barbell shrugs, heavy weight. 10 reps. 2 sets
EZ bar curls x 4 sets. heavy weight, 10 rep max
Leg press x 3 sets, heavy weight 10 reps.
Squats x 2 sets, heavy weight (for me anyway..) 10 reps
Calf raises, have not been using weights for these. 100 reps or so.
Pullups x 30. Can only do around 2 or 3 at a time.
Am I doing enough to meet my goal of getting big?
Please note I am following a good eating plan also as I used to build with no results and found out it was due to lack of food.
