USA DEALS

Beginner

Hi guys.

I really want to get into body building.

I have read the threads and sections you recommend to any new person to this site but would really like some help designing a training plan.

On the 6th july i have my royal marines selection, so at the moment iam fit but not that built.
Should i pass my selection i really want to get into toning muscle.

Heres my facts:

i want to:

run x2 a week, cycle x2 a week, swim x1 week to maintain fitness.
but the rest of the time i want to really tone and build muscle.

Once i have got a plan in place i will consider desiging a nutrional programme.

any help will be great!

thanks

joe

    m8- look at the articles section for begginers

    if your doing the cardio to maintain fitness make sure you FUEL the cardio with a suitable pre workout meal! low GI carb source 1 hour before

    say you lift weights 3x week (ou can find a routine from the articles)

    mon- weights am
    Tues- run
    Wed- weights am, cycle pm
    Thurs- swim
    Fri- cycle am
    Sat- run am, weights pm (if you choose to do a split where you train legs pretty heavy, train legs here so you have a bit of time to recover)
    Sun- off

    you may prefer to do cardio after weights, although this wont be ideal m8! most importantly eat loads, get your diet sorted and make sure that you fuel your cardio

    you need more thoughts? Read TTs articles, go with a basic 3 day split as posted on here countless times and get on with it...

    there was me thinking this was a forum where people would offer advice. if you'd bothered to read my first post it states i have read the articles but still require some help with structuring a plan.

    Its all on here mate, it just needs some reading. Sorry to sound short but so many people come on here saying "I need a routine/diet" when there are loads already on here, it just takes a little searching.

    In brief:
    Master the compound lifts - bench press, dead lift, squats, SLDLs, rows, military presses, chins and dips.

    3 day split - chest/tri, back/bi, legs/shoulders. Or a 4 day split with legs on a seperate day as they take a bit of a hammering.

    If bulking, you need a calorie excess, if cutting, you need calorie deficit. Meat good clean food, roughly 1.5g protein per lb of bodyweight. roughly 4g per lb bodyweight carbs. Don't neglect fat intake either.

    There is so much more to it than this and all the answers are already here mate, it just takes a little research. If you have specific questions everybody will be more than willing to help.
