My impression is that you should lift for strength at first. Once you've built a solid foundation you can move on to the BB bodypart split workouts. Jumping into a BB workout right away isn't going to do much because you don't have the strength to make any decent gains yet.
The key to gaining weight is proper diet. but stronger muscle can get bigger quicker I believe not 100% sure.
Hey guys...I work out like 3-4 times a week. Im a little older now (28). Im trying to eliminate the spare tire around my mid section before summer. Right now i am about 5'6" 165 lbs. Im not really trying to get huge, I just like staying in shape and being somewhat active since im sitting on my ass all day at work.
My workout routine currently consists of:
30 Min run on treadmill (6.8 speed)
Bench Press - 3x10 (135 lbs)
Pull ups 3x10 /Push ups 3x20 (I do intervals...one set of pull ups/one set of push ups)
Abs - 1 set of 20 standard crunches, 1 set of 15 raised leg crunches, 1 set of 10 leg raises, 1 set of 20 scissor kicks, 1 set of 15 sit ups where i lay with my legs on the floor and just lift my upper body
Dips - 3x15
Barbell Curls 3x10
Dumbell Tricep Extension 3x10
Bench dips - 2x20
Dumbell Curls 3x8
Lat Pulldown - 3x10
Machine Tricep extension - 3x10
Pullups to exhaustion
Pushups to exhaustion
Any ideas of what I can do to modify this...i guess to maximize calorie/fat burn. The weather is getting nicer so I am going to start going on my 4 mile runs again twice a week. I also heard doing sprints is a good way to lose the weight from your midsection. If any of you are experts/trainers can you give me a few tips.
I do. I'm constantly trying new ones just to compare.
The one that worked the best for me was Animal Pump. (Pills is a plus for me since I think all the shakes taste like ****)
Super Pump... was okay but I re-named it SuperDump since I had to take a dump prior to the workout. Got annoying.
I'm taking Body Rush now. Doesn't taste terrible and definitely gets me amped up. I'm a fan of it.
