I am needing help as a first time lifter, I done some weights back in high school but stopped when I left. Now I want to start lifting again to make my mind of an ex partner and to feel good about myself again :evillaugh: but dont know where to start.

I would pick a well rounded routine, Starting Strength or HCT-12 is a good start. Practice and perfect the squat, bench, deadlift, and overhead press. Be ready to dedicate years of your life to this goal.

sorry mate, what is htc-12?
Would it be an aditional aid to begin using pure whey protein

Look at the top of the forum.
See a link titled HCT-12 Training Routine.
Click the link, read the articles, and ask any questions that may come up.

First of all you will never look exactly like this... what you see in the pictures is Photoshop + they train from a very early age (swim) but you can get to this mass!

The two pictures don't even look exactly the same, but he can get to a VERY similar physique with lots of hard work. It's nonsense to dismiss someone by saying "oh what you're trying to attain is photo-shopped and they've been training for a while". If he works hard it's entirely possible.

I know you can do it man, just get on a serious mass gaining routine(5x5), gain 60-70 lbs. Cut all the fat and you'll be a monster. Train big, eat big, sleep big, get big. Good luck man.

To achieve the pelvic V, that really comes down to diet, abdomen, oblique, and hip exercises. Trim the fat and you can get it.

As someone that has trained under the HCT-12 program, I highly recommend it. You can achieve great things if you stick to the diet and workout regiment.

As a firm believer of this, in order to change your life, you need to change your lifestyle. Make the appropriate changes and you will see results.
