I recently graduated from highschool and used to fuck around in the gym with buddies during lunchbreak with freeweights and machines. Lately I've been creeping around these boards and others, and Carnal's motivational essay and Urban's site in particular tempted me to start lifting a bit more seriously. I sifted through what others had posted and the stickies, and put together a base; I was hoping for some comments on it. I won't even bother posting my big 3 maxes, it pales in comparison to a lot of your numbers I'm 6'3 192. a lanky fucker, I know. I guess I could be deemed athletic, I played basketball and rugby in highschool. My goals? Not sure. I just don't wanna be a skinny fuck anymore d1 squat 4x4 standing good mornings 3x9 leg press 4x10 d2 bb benchpress 4x7 arnold press 4x7 db overhead press 4x7 bb curls 4x7 d3 deadlift 4x5 bent-over rows 4x7 shrugs 4x10 I found a routine in another thread that looked somewhat similar to this, I hope I didn't butcher it too much. I actually prefer freeweights over machines, so I usually like sticking with BBs or DBs. I'm looking to know if I'm overtraining, not training too hard, not enough reps, not enough sets, etc. Any feedback appreciated. Thanks.
