Need Help Completely!

Hey, ive been going to the gym quite alot over the last two years, mainly just to keep my self fit for football. Although now i wish to get my self bigger as the level at which i play at is getting harder! I have been reading up on quite alot of body building techniques but i am not sure which one would be for me!

I am looking to build my self up to a considerable size, i am not fat atall now, im rather toned but i could do with progressing on what i have at the moment. I am unsure of what protein powders to take or whether or not they will help me with my sport or whether or not they are illegal to my sport. I want something to help with the development, i know have a suitable diet will help and i am gradually taking that on board so far but i know that there are certain things you can do that can speed up the process of this.. I am unsure of what i need to do which will help my progress in my sport and what i should consume..

If anyone has the time to help it would be appretiated!

Cheers

Deano

    The main thing like you say is to get a good diet, this meakes HELL of a difference. Post it up in the diet section to get it reviewed. But basically eat little and often (every 2-3 hours), have protein with every meal, eat lots fruit and veg, and cut out ready meals, sugar and junk food.

    As for suppliments. Why is handy to get protein into you, especially when you awake and post workout. I get unflavoured stuff from www.myprotein.co.uk

    You don't need suppliments mate, you need a good diet ... that's it. Suppliments suppliment your diet.

    To get bigger you should eat more ...

    As for training, base your routine on compound exercises (bench, deads, squats, rows, shoulder press) and forget about isolations (flies, curls and machines), lift heavy, controlled and in good form.

    Also good to split your routine up into days so that you don't overtrain. i.e. chest/triceps/shoulders one day back/biceps aother and legs/abs a third. I can give you a good 3, 4 or 5 day split if you want ...

    hope this helps

    some good tips above.

    I'd be interested in seeing your current and full training routine. You may want to read my beginners guide that has a couple of sample routines on as well as some general introductory info.

    Definitley read Cashmans beginners guide. I printed it and refer to it all the time. Another good read is ToxicToffee's guide "Building your House". Just click the links below to be instantly transported.

    Both full of invaluable advice.
