How Did You Get Started?

I was always the tall skinny kid... one day at work, I asked my manager (Ray) how he got so big, so we started talking about working out and he got me to go one to the gym one day. Once I felt that soreness and that high... I was hooked.

    You can do some cardio but limit it to 1 mile. Too much cardio will burn too much energy and you won't be able to gain mass

    You can't over-train your abs. Pick 3-6 of these exercises and do as many as you can or have time for.

  • Crunches (legs can be up or down same for arms)
  • Reverse crunches- on an incline bench (you can do less reps with these) works lower abs
  • Side bends either standing or on an inclined bench usually holding a weight
  • Sit up with a twist to each side
  • Hanging crunch

    You want abs? Eat leaner. Abs are made in the kitchen not in the gym. White meat chicken and fish, boiled, grilled, pan seared in olive oil eat with green veggies like broccoli or spinach. Try to eat every 2 hours- 6 small meals per day about 400-450 calories per meal. Drink water at least 8 16.9 ounce bottles per day if you are working out. Possibly only 6 if you are not working out.

    Lastly, on average you want 16 sets per muscle group to be considered moderate volume of training.
