Wanted to get into lifting, any advice/opinions on my routine?
First off, I am a 20yr male, 5'9, 155, in pretty decent shape looking to build more muscle mass, ideally get up to ~170-175. I've been lifting on and off for the past two years. I was hoping to start lifting 3 days a week once school began on Mon/Wed/Fri. The reason I have to start then is because I am getting ACL reconstructive surgery in two days so I will be rehabbing this summer.
Anyways, my workout after reading around is going to be:
So any advice on the routine and nutrition? Not sure how much I should be eating. Whenever I would lift, I would take Optimum Nutrition protein and make it so I was taking in ~150g protein/day. But not sure how many calories, g/protein I should be taking and if I should take any other supplements.
Any advice or opinions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
looks solid. I'd up the protein to around 200, I think it will make a difference. Legs are a bit skimped, your arms get 3 separate half days while legs just get a half day. but i guess its hard to give it an entire day with a 3 day routine.
Definetly up the protein as stated. Also, I would try doing Back/Triceps together and Chest/Biceps. While doing ur back, your already gonna be using mostly bicep with the pulling moves, which will hinder your bicep workouts after your done with your back. Also the same with chest/triceps. This was told to me about 4 years ago, by a NPC bodybuilder, which i took his advice and can definetly tell it works better. But go with whatever feels best for you. Just an opinion.
Thanks for the advice. As previously stated, I'll definitely up the protein to close to 200g/day. And I'll be sure to start with lighter weights before I start using heavier weights. And Ill take the back/tris, chest/biceps into consideration. Ill alternate for the first two weeks to see how the different combos feel.
