    Welcome to the forum mate.

    The 3 day beginners routine is a perfect choice for somebody just starting up with weight training.

    Stick with the routine for approx 10-12 weeks.
    Consistency is the key

    This is a great routine for you. You could even continue to make gains on it after 10 - 12 weeks (although it is an idea to change it around a bit to keep the routine fresh and to hit the muscles slightly differently). Also your diet is gonna be VERY important to getting that 'cut' look that you aspire to. at 115lbs you are gonna need to EAT and make sure you fill out those muscles BEFORE you will get 'cut', that look is only achieved once there is suitable muscle mass to cut. A lot of people make the mistake that getting 'cut' is just about losing weight. IT ISNT. It is about having enough muscle mass to sculpt and define to give the 'cut' impression. Unless you bulk out and EAT and lift then you will never get cut. It sounds like you are on the right line buddy, as you have gone for a good program for your level, just make sure the diet is good and you are eating enough and you will get to where you want to be

    The best thing you can do, the best thing that will help you achieve your goals... is DIET! Get your diet under control, calculate your BMR: http://www.muscleandstrength.com/too...alculator.html

    And make sure you add 500 calories to that so you are under a bulking state to add the muscle!

    You should be getting 1-1.5 grams of protein per lb so aim for 115-172 grams of protein a day! If you find that a hard thing to achieve through normal diet go ahead and add a whey protein supplement shake to help you reach that goal!


    Eat BIG get BIG.

    [BF = 14%] [Total body fat = 23.1lbs] [Fat free mass = 144.9lbs]

    Limit the supplements your first 6 months to a year. first you don't need creatine or BCAA at that point. Your training effect is not to a point where you would get that great a benefit. Save them for after the first year. A good protein powder, fish oils and a multi vite with minerals is a good base to start. I see so many new people in the gym on every supplement under the sun. One guy had two week under his belt and he was taking a powerful pro hormone, NO2 and a fat burner. None will do much for him because he has not trained long enough. You need to build the base with a good solid nutrition program and regimented and correct workout plan. Supplements will come later.
