power mass buildnig routing question ?

i hav a friend who used to do 10 -12 sets of 8 - 12 reps of workouts and he is MASSIVE and i jus wuna say i wunt to be big like him, im pretty healthy guy, and i used to do workouts before, but not as intense as him,

is there any good 3 day routine where i can work:

my arms, legs, shoulder, back, chest, muscles, abs in one, my m8 dusnt explain things clearly and stil dusnt wen u ask him but hes agood guy

anyway, even if i have to change routine after a few months, i would appreciate any help, also i do plan on doing intense training, even 25 sets of 12 reps, if i have to,

btw im 6ft 1, and my arms are long, is this a problem ? i wunt to be broad really broad not lanky,

    i've got a friend who does so many things sometimes that if i did the same things as him, i would be overtraining and yet he still continues to get bigger and stronger. i think the reason for him being that way is just genetics.

    vercetti 00,

    Welcome to MT mate. From your post I'd say you have a lot to learn about training. The best thing for you to do would be to have a look at the various routines people have posted - there is a post at the top of this forum titled 'Need a Routine? Read This' or similar.

    Have a scan through the various routines, come up with a plan that suits you and post it here for us to have a look at.

    Frankie NY's routine is proving very popular at the moment and is a three day split - perhaps this would be a good place for you to start.

    Best of luck

    welcome to MT vercetti, unfortunitally your body type is determined by genetics. i spent ages trying to make my arms bigger as my chest/back is already well developed. i got nowhere!after reading through this site i found that by training correctly i can put on muscle mass all over and so my arms will look bigger!dont worry bout them being long mate,mine are long but dont look lanky,ulll definitly get there if you put the work in!
    frankies 5*5 routine is a hard training routine, u might find you need to strengthen your ligaments and tendons before doing this sort of a workout. have a look in the beginners section for an initial routine if your not an experienced lifter, happy training!!

    That routine outlines that it is not for beginners without break-in training beforehand though, if you were to try that you'd want to maybe start on 3x10 then 4x8 for at least a month each to get used to everything.
