    Ronnie Get Big, for starter?

    Hello,

    I got solid diet and supplements to start with, but can't decide with workout routine Ronnie's workout looking simple bodybuilding.com/fun/ronnie-colemans-fitness-program.html he goes 15-20 reps and tells in his video that's the way to build muscle "a lot reps", but there are to many articles in net stating that 4-6/6-8 reps going to failure will get you best muscle speeds up metabolism, burns more calories etc. So I got in this confusion what is better? 6-8 reps or 15-25? Would love to settle down and do one program.

    Neither is better, it depends on the individual, though if you care about strength somewhat as well as size, then you would do 6-8 rather than 15-25, if all you care about is size then you could go with either, and find out what works for you. Ronnie was a powerlifter so while he may be repping weight 15-25 times, that's some relatively heavy weight so I can see how that would work for him.

    I'm stuck in the same boat , so many different techniques.

    They will probably tell you to start anything and stick with it for a while, after they recommend Allpro or SS or bill stars 5x5.

    I been looking at 100 different routines and can't decide. I tried HST today and I don't have the energy to do a fullbody routine.

    Been looking at PHAT also by layne norton, GVT, dogcrapp and a modified 5x5 with some volume isolation work.

    Let me know what you decide on, gonna follow this.

    Edit: Would a mixture of low and high reps benefit more for both strength and size?

    I.e. Chest compound movement like incline bench 5x5 or 3x5 and then say flat db flyes 3x10-15

    Or would 1 week of heavy low reps, 1 week of lower weight higher reps work better to target hypertrophy?

    I.e. Week one 5x5, week two 10x10

    Or should I focus on 6-8 reps for 6-12 weeks than hit more volume for 6-12 weeks for muscle confusion?

    They all work. You just need to do one.

    If you are looking for something that eases you into lifting weights take a look at StrongLifts. No need to know what your starting weight set is. Empty bar for most lifts, add 5 pounds to the bar a workout. This is called linear progression. Vey effective for beginner lifters.
