    Hi mate. That looks OK to me.

    Right I'm no expert on nutrition, but if you want more calories then add another snack somewhere. A tuna or corned beef sandwich with an apple would be ideal.

    Workout looks fine, personally I feel that training is quite a personal thing anyway, so unless you are unhappy with progress I'd stick with what works for you. Post the rest of your training as you do it so we can comment. Good luck!

    Hey Bro,

    Need to sort the diet so you are getting enough EVERYDAY! It will hinder your gains substantially if you keep yo-yoing and eating well one day then crap the next!

    How many days a week are you hitting the gym? You need to start working off a 4 day split if possible. To get large you need to work large muscle groups either by themselves or with a small muscle group. My routine is like so:

    day 1) Chest & Tri's
    day 2) Shoulders & Bi's
    day 3) rest
    day 4) Legs
    day 5) back

    then repeat.

    Your doing way too much on your legs, don't do more than 16 sets per body part. Starting out you should aim more for 12 sets per body part. Your doing 23 sets on quads alone on your leg day. WAY overtraning them!

    Build your routines around heavy compound exercises: such as dead lifts, squats, bench press. Add in isolations when & how you please.

    My routine looks like this:

    Chest
    dumbbell flys
    incline dumbell flys
    decline dumbbell flys
    bench press
    incline bench press
    dips

    Have dips as your core chest exercise and mix and match another 2 exercises to suit.

    Tri's:
    close grip bench press
    skull chrushers
    tricep pulldowns
    overhead tricep extensions

    Build your tricep routine around close grip bench press.

    Bi's
    dumbbell preacher curls
    dumbell concentration curls
    hammer curls
    cross body hammer curls

    build around preacher curls

    Shoulders
    Arnie press
    shoulder press
    front & side raises
    bent over rows

    use the shoulder or arnie press as a base & pick and chosse what best suits

    legs
    Squats
    leg extension
    hamstring curls

    Back
    Deadlift
    shrugs
    bent over rows
    Heavy seated rows

    Deadlift as your core exercise.


    All the above pick and mix and changeup but keep a core exercise in each muscle group, change around your routine every 6 weeks or so to keep encouraging growth.


    Hope this helps!

    figured that squats,legpress and leg ext were quads and the other 2 were hammstrings so it actually wasnt that much or at least it was good.Also its hard to be consistant when u run outa food and cash
