Generally New to Bodybuilding

I've recently really got into the idea of bodybuilding. I bought arnold schwarzenegger's encyclopedia of bodybuilding the other day and have been reading it a bit.

I went through the body types listed and decided i am probably ectomorph (spelling?), if that helps. It mentioned that because I'm more on the lean side i should focus on foods high in colories to help me build a goof foundation of muslce, along with lots of weight but a low amount of reps.

That said i still need lots of help putting together a routine, as well as a good diet to help me build some good muscle. I have time to work out practically every day.

If anyone could give me any incite on what to begin eating for breakfast lunch and dinner, along with snacks, and what muscles would be best to start building, how many reps, how any sets, and for how many days a week it would be of great help to me.

    Take a read of these:


    5-8 reps 3-4 sets imo are the best for mass building.
    Have a look around the routine section for different types of routines that you could follow. Could follow a whole body routine three times a week, or maybe a three or four day split

    best advice i can give is read every article on this site, and search in terms of "diet" and "routine"

    come up with your own diet plan & routine rased on your research on this site, post it and we will offer advice, but make sure u do the research first and make an effort

    also worth looking at other ppls journals and basing your routine/diet on theirs (assuming your goals are the same)
