hey getfit thanks man my legs are probaby my weakest point. i have nice build on my thighs but my calves are soo weak i hate em i dont even like to wear shorts because of that reason.

i havent been in the gym in 4 months, if i were to take current pictures u can see how much muscle mass that ive lost :(
so i currently dont have a routine..


even though i went 5 days a week and my workout schedule was pretty solid. i would say my actual routine needed ALOT of work because it was so scattered. Can any1 reccomend a good and thorough book?


the routine that i was on during those pics would be

monday:
chest

standard bench press 4 sets of 8-10 reps
incline bench press "same
decline bench press "same

and then the rest would depend sometimes i would do flys sometimes i would do other things

tuesday:
shoulders

(im so bad with names of certain exercises)
shoulder press? sometimes i would do it with a dumbbell sometimes i would do it with a bar
i woud do some other things too of course

wednesday:
Back

thursday:
arms

friday:
legs

^ the thing is i would rather get a book with all of the info right there just to start me off on my new routine than to search thru a bunch of posts that would take forever!

i guess i can do a little bit of both though. but if someone can reccomend a good book for me i would greatly appreciate it :)

Mike Mentzer has a good book that I can recommend. I can't remember the title exactly, but check out Mentzer on Google search or something. It is good for routines, diet etc. for putting on mass.

You look pretty darned good to me!

Nice to see you work your leggies - what do you do for 'em?

Oh, and there's a great article on calves - the magic trick seems to all be in the pause at the bottom... http://www.wannabebig.com/article.php?articleid=172

^ thanks built! thats exactly what i need to work on..

my calves are so weak, i want to be able to wear shorts.
thats my main focus and also i want to get bigger but i want to look really lean...i see some guys get big but they look bulky and "short limbed" if you know what i mean i dont like that look. i like long and lean im just not sure how i can get bigger without looking bulky.

Cali4niaFitness,

Good work. You look damn good and lean. Nice profile shot.

Built,

Thank you for linking up the calf suggestion- I will incorporate it starting next week (I've got the same issue).

if its your calves that you are worried about, i would suggest hitting them about 2 times a week.. you can incorporate them into another workout like on chest or shoulders day at the end.. calves tend to heal pretty quickly so there shouldn't be a problem with twice per week.

what do u guys suggest for bulking up but still having your muscles looking long and lean? i dont want the boxy stubby appearance so many weightlifters have.

Hey Dude, best thing to do is to have a high intake of protein, the more the better I say.. Also remember Carbs can be your best friend or your worst enemy... Bon appitite.. :burger: :fart: :drooling: :micro:

^ i read one gram of protein per lb. of body weight is sufficient

what do you guys think
