    Question Weight Training Guidance

    Hello. I am 22 year old, male. I am in the military. I see a lot of my friends weight lifting and I really want to start myself. My goal is to get bigger, but maintain tone as well. I do not want to forgo cardio due to physical exams that we have to take (i.e. running). I have done a little weight training in the past but not extensively. I am more than a novice, i'd say I could break into intermediate. i want to mainly train on biceps, triceps, back, legs, and chest. I can work out 5-6 times a week. I have an ectomorph type body structure (kind of).

    I have already visited several other forums but I just really want to have a personal response with a workout routine that helps fit what my needs are instead of trying to find one and not completely understanding what I have to do.

    I am willing to commit. If there is anything else you need to know, I am willing to answer in the additional sections.

    Thanks guys, I really appreciate this.

    body types are based on bogus science, everyone is a mix of all 3
    If you haven't been training for at least the last year, then you're a novice lifter
    muscle tone is a product of low body fat and adequate muscle mass
    choose a proven novice program that fits your goals (Starting Strength, StrongLifts, All Pro's Simple Beginner Routine). All of these are 3 day programs which should be adequate and leave some time for running.
    calculate BMR/TDEE and eat 300-500 cals above maintenance. try to consume at least 1.0-2.0g of protein per 1llb of body weight. adjust cals as necessary to maintain steady weight gain of about 1lb per week.

    Workouts are important for toning our body. Without workouts and proper diet, it is impossible to maintain the body weight. You can join fitness classes if you want to get quick results.
