    I'm pretty new to the site and my trainer friend helped me make the workout. Most of the routines I look at have some excersices that I just cannnot do. I can't do pullups, dips, pushups and a few other things that always seem to be in the routines.

    6-7 excercises for back, chest, legs, bis and tris
    1-2 for calves
    2-3 for traps
    4-5 for forearms
    3-4 for shoulders

    Around that ish

    I think you need to re-do your routine, especially if you are doing more bicep workouts than shoulders...

    So do you agree with this thing?

    "Here is a recommended set range for each muscle group:
    Legs - 14-20 sets
    Calves - 6-10 sets (possible twice per week)
    Abs - 6-10 sets (possibly twice per week)
    Back - 12-16 sets
    Shoulders - 9-12 sets
    Triceps - 8-10 sets
    Biceps - 6-9 sets
    Forearms - 4-8 sets
    Traps - 3-6 sets
    Chest - 12-16 sets"

    That's a little better

    I think your best bet is to go off a routine on this site, because now comes the part(Where I'm learning) with the compund and isolation exercise movements and what-not.

    Like I said before though, the problem with the routines on this site are there are some excersices that I cannot do. Even with assited pull ups I still cannot do them. That's my biggest problem with these routines.

    I'm sure people will help you find different exercises that do almost the same thing, and with pullups, try doing negatives. They can do wonders.

    Alright, so after posting a few times and reading through every exercise for the fat loss work outs I think I am going to try the 6 Day Weight/Cardio Cutting Workout. I can do most every exercise for this and it looks pretty good. If anyone has any suggestions for me please let me know. Thanks for all of the help so far

    My friend, that is for advanced users. Advanced routines are labeled "Advanced" for a reason. The workout is 3 days, but your body needs to adjust to weight lifting and especially to cutting before we would suggest that routine. It combines heavy weight lifting with very intense Cardio which someone with less then 6 months experience would struggle with. It's mainly a post bulk type workout routine. I would do, possibly, the Whole Body Toning Workout in your case. It is a good exercise for someone who has some experience, but needs to give a bit of a start up.


    The only exercise you might have trouble with is chest dips. You can instead either do negatives* or replace it with Bench Press or Pec Deck.


    You could even do this routine for some great results.

    Good luck!

    * Negatives are where you jump up and lower yourself as much as possible. Do this if you can't do pullups, dips, chest dips, etc.

    The only thing that went perfectly today was my diet, and half of my cardio... which would be me walking back home (1.5 hrs). I was pretty much eating good food the whole day.

    Girl1: Brenden, what dressing do you use on your salad?
    Me: No dressing....
    omg brenden's healthy


    edit: OH, not to mention I hate the weather-woman, she's the most stupid lier ever.... and I forgot my IPOD, so I walked for an hour and a half listening to MYSELF THINK...

    I took a few pics, I'll post them up after.

    Today didn't go well. Y membership still isn't up and my cardio was short lived. My diet was well, however, which is a good step I guess. :/

    Worked out for the first time today. The work out went well but in my journal I detail the whole fiasco with my things getting stolen.

    My diet isn't too great today. Wasn't intentional -

    11:00 am - Cereal
    Was supposed to work out at 2 so I didn't eat.
    3:00 pm - I ate a potato :3
    5:00 pm - Workout. I didn't have a water so I think I was under hydrated.
    8:00 pm - Don't know what I'm having for dinner, I think my dad is making hotdogs.

    I'm sure there will be more events like this to come.

    Well so far, I've walked to school 3 miles took me a briskful hour minutes.

    Diet at school was a lot of *good* carbs and fats *nuts*... and lots of water.

    Jogged home took me about 35 minutes.
    -I beat the metro bus home. (Victory)
    Had a protein shake... Felt like I had been lacking in that department...
    Now all the carbs I consumed all day (meant for my leg workout), I used for cardio... So now i'm going to have carb up.. *again... lots* for Legs tonight. Tomorrow, I look foward to not being able to sit down without feeling sore.

    I hope everyone is staying focused


    edit: Franko make sure you drink water lots of water today & tomorrow, however, the hotdogs will be salty so you'll feel bloated.

    Just got done with legs........................................ 1h30m of cardiovascular activity, 1h20m of weight lifting......... very beast-like.

    Took the day off today because I got sick yesterday. Stomach sick not sick from working out. Felt really lazy as I stayed home and diet went slightly amiss as I ate soup to help my stomach. Hope tomorrow is a better day.

    Take that day to fix your diet

    or just touch up on it.

    Slacked! Been insanely busy this week trying to get things set at work for my vacation next week. Can't leave if everything's broken

    So, I've missed a few days of cardio, but the diet's been fairly consistent and I'm still hitting the gym today after work, so not too bad. It's a shame too, it's finally beautiful out in Michigan and I haven't had the time to go out
