phillipeb Posted February 1, 2008 Share Posted February 1, 2008 Alright so i finally found a gym that wont bust my wallet. Its basic and at 10 bucks a month i cant complain. So i can move beyond the realm of bodyweight work outs into assisted weight workouts. Now since there was a hiccup in the system around december that lost my previous 20 posts im unsure if anyone is aware that while i am frequenting this forum i am more looking for slow gradual gains in the form of 5 or so lbs of muscle a year. It is my hope that by doing this i can learn to sustain a weight of 180lbs-185lbs without having to live in the gym. Id like to keep the muscle on by doing every day things. That being said i found a link to a basic body building routine for the absolute begginer because that is what i am. i was wondering if anyone could perhaps look it over and let me know what you think. It goes on for paragraphs about how obviously know who this workout was written for because it is so basic. I appreciate any help you can give me. I have loved coming here and reading about everyones love of fitness and it has been very inspiring for me to comit at that same level. here is the link to the program:http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=998224 It is in section 1c that i think he outlines his suggestion as to how and what to workout. I was thinking about doing compound exercises because i just want to overall engage my body. Which i also hear is good for building muscle as well. A few extra questions. Taking into account my goals of a 5 lb increase in muscle mass a year how much protean should i be shooting for in a day. if i ate a diet of 1500-1700 calories a day because beyond that i gain weight what should i increase it to now that i will be lifting weights. Is cardio bad to do when my goals are meager as they are? I read that if you dont want to loose muscle then don't do cardio but i have a hard time eating the calories i need to bulk without gaining substantial fat as well. Thank you guys for your help i look forward to entering the bodybuilding lifestyle how ever luke warm my approach is. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
