Hello all, Newbie from Cornwall looking for advice!!

Hi all,

Thought it was about time i got serious about my health and fitness and thankfully came across this site. Just started reading some of the advice on here and can see its definitely a community i want to join.
Well i should tell you a bit about myself:
My name is Rich and im from Cornwall.

My stats are as follows:
Age 28
5ft 11"
11st 10lb
Generally healthy but can definitley be in better shape.  I have recently lost some weight via a low GI diet and exercise, however, I have reassessed my goals and attitude i would now like to start building muscle and tone my body. I have set myself no time limit in achieving these goals, i am just focused on training hard, eating well and enjoying my progress. I want to feel and look good in my own body and improve my fitness and health.

For the last six weeks i have been following the universal building full body program. I am currently in my last week of the following routine (4 week routine):

Exercise 1: BARBELL CURL -8 reps and proceed immediately to the next
exercise.

Exercise 2: TRICEPS PRESS - 10 reps, catch your breath, and perform another flushset of 12 reps of each exercise.

Exercise 3: CHEST DIPS - 10 REPS then proceed immediately to next exercise.

Exercise 4: STRAIGHT ARM PULLOVER –Two sets of 12 reps the another flush set of exercise 3

Exercise 5: WIDE-GRIP CHIN-UP to the FRONT

Exercise 6: SQUAT- Two sets of 12 reps

Exercise 7: PRESS – Two sets of 8 reps

Exercise 8: Sit ups- Two sets of as many reps as i can perform

After the four weeks i go back to a progressive workout routine for another 4 weeks.

I do these full body workouts on mon-wed-fri with the other days being a rest day. I am also looking at putting in some mountain biking on the weekend.

I feel i have a balanced diet, however, i will post this for critique.
I will post some pics this week in the photo forum and would really appreciate feedback.
I am looking for advice on every aspect of this new adventure and look forward to speaking to you all.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
Cheers
Rich

    Welcome to MT Rich
     
    Start a Progress Journal HERE mate - will keep you motivated and we can keep an eye on you
     
    Both Diet and Routine section are a good place to start posting to get feedback on both.
     
    Have a read through, most questions will have an answer somewhere

    As mentioned start a journal.
    Try different rountines, see what you yield the best gains from and take it from there.
    You said your eating well and training hard. as long as you keep that up you should be doing well.
     
    Hello and good luck!
