I found Kris Gethin's 12 week daily trainer to be very effective as there are daily videos and the workouts have a lot of variation so I didn't get bored. It gets more challenging as the weeks go on and he incorporated DTP and FST7. Worth a look

Don't rely only on prescribed workouts. Research how to calculate your 1 rep max as well as percentages of that weight. Then steadily increase the percentage of your 1RM for each exercise. Then every 2 weeks re-access your 1RM for every exercise you're doing. I found that using the prescribed workouts really good as a guideline rather than a strict routine. That's just what I found works for me. The Hugh Jackman "Mutant strength" article has a Rep max calculator in the actual article. Hope this helps.

There's some good suggestions here but it's hard to know whats best for you until we know what your training status is at. ie how long have you been training for etc... It's like having a doctor prescribe something before you've told them your symptoms.

That being said, anything that doesn't injure you is always a good start lol... When it comes to nutrition there's plenty of good info out there and they all have common threads of truth.

I prefer a leg, push, pull split. Switching of between strength and hypertrophy training allows steady growth and strength gains. It is also great because of the frequency, training each muscle group 2 times a week. Good luck!!

You can do it! The more you tell yourself you can and the more you pay attention to those small victories... the better off you are. Did you go the gym and kick yourself up in cardio? Awesome. Did you try and add more reps to your work out today? That's epic. Keep up the positive attitude and you'll do great things.

I would recommend Wendler's 531 program. I have made decent gains over the last couple months using this program and I personally know a couple other guys who are on BEAST mode because of this program.

Easy to follow. It cuts the crap out of weight training. If you are looking for a program that is easy and not complicated at all that you can follow, hassle-free, then this is the program I would say to follow.

Sit down for a few hours after you figured out what your goal is. strength, mass, shred, etc... The few hours should be dedicated to getting on a program for the next 12 weeks that will maximize your results. The second thing and most important is figuring out your diet for what you want to achieve. I for example need to get my body fat down to 6 percent from the current 15 percent and gain a half an inch in my calves and a little growth in my inner lower pectoral muscle for symmetry since I had a deficit in my upper chest and focused on them the last 16 weeks. I'll be following a what is known is a zig zag diet plan. That will allow me to keep my current muscle and shed the fat. Figure out your macro-nutrients is the easy way to go about this. This week I need 257 grams of protein, 257 grams of carbohydrates and around 175 grams of fats for my diet for Day 1 based on my actively level today. So I will break up my meals into 6 easy meal plans. A gram scale can help with measuring out portions.

Eat clean, drink your water, plan your meals, and you got this.

Friend me if you want. 2014 is going to be a great year for Hulett3452 and all of us...
