Help for a newbie.......

Hi everyone, I've been directed to this forum by a friend as I need help. I'm 30 years old, 6'2" and 175lbs. I'll post some pics up when I can get hold of a camera.

I've never touched a weight in my life but I've recently had an eye opening experience- a real life changer and I've decided one of the things I want to do with my life is get bigger & stronger.

I've done a little research into diet and routines and just wondered if this looks ok:

Bent over rows
Military press

Leg press
Calf Raise
Leg curls


Thursday: as Monday

Friday: as Tuesday

Would I be better of doing this or alternating the 2 workouts on Monday/Wednesday/Friday?

Thanks in advance

    Firstly, welcome to MT bud. And i really like the 'JACK_KNIFE' name

    Im 31, so dont feel because there are loads of teenagers and early-twenty year olds on here, that you're too old to start BBing. There are guys on here much older than us too.

    Good thing is that you decided to make this change in lifestyle. I think that's 80% of it. Unless your heat and mind is really into it, you wont succeed.

    Cant offer specific routine advice as i feel others would do a better job. You might also try posting in the 'bodybuilding routines' or 'training correctly' sections for more specific advice.

    So good luck to you bro, and look forward to reading your posts as you progress!

    Look good mate. Ideally, you'd drop the leg press and leg curls and add either a stiff leg dead lift or romanian deadlift. I'd also add some ab work into the lower body days.

    Use a different rep range for each of the sessions (say 3x10 and 4x6), don't train to failure and you'll be fine.
