Iâ€™m just beginning to workout out of school on my own and Iâ€™m not sure how to create the best schedule for me to gain weight and muscle. I do know that I must eat a shit ton and lift heavier with lower reps. Anyways I have a few questions.
1) Should I workout my legs more than once a week (squats, leg press), since theyâ€™re one of the bigger muscle groups?
2) I should do arms every other day right? I heard thatâ€™s the best thing to do. Also brings me to my 3rd question below
3) When I work arms, should I split bicep and tricep workouts into different days? I know theyâ€™re anterior/posterior so itâ€™s OK to do so but Iâ€™m not sure whatâ€™s most beneficial.
4) Should I be deadlifting already and every week? Iâ€™ve worked out at school often and have experience doing it and am confident in my form, but is it safe/beneficial to do so every week?
5) Abs? Iâ€™m not sure even how to implement these into my workout – Iâ€™ve seen people couple it w/something else and Iâ€™ve seen people do them at the end of a normal dayâ€™s workout.
6) Supplements? I know these can be very dangerous if I choose a bad brand or take too much, but Iâ€™ve heard examples of them working great and wanna try it, but I have no idea which to get and need help
This is my tentative schedule for now, appreciate opinions and recommendations
Day 1. Legs / arms 2. Chest / abs 3. Back / arms 4. Shoulders & traps / abs 5. Deadlift / arms 6. Legs / anything needed 7. Rest
Is bro split good for building muscles
Itâ€™s so hard. I ate good today. Iâ€™ve been cutting out all the excess junk I have. I still eat it but not as much. But right now Iâ€™m craving
Block of cheese Chicken strips Crisps Kit Kat Lasagne Tea
And I just want to sit down and eat it all. Lol. Itâ€™s so hard, normally I Jus eat whatever I want and now I canâ€™t do that. -_- help…
Doesnâ€™t this mean I have to limit myself for the rest of my life… I canâ€™t just go and eat unlimited amount biscuits …
Any idea on how to properly balance the squat rack on the back so as to not feel pain in my neck?
