View Full Version : BGB Stars NOW

06-25-2007, 05:29 PM
I am going to start using the BGB Routine that is a little bit edited. I am currently 5'11'' and 170 lbs. I would like to surpass 6' tall, which in time will come and I would like to weigh around 200 lbs, not gaining fat. Over time this will happen of course, I have to learn to understand that these things do not happen over night.

My routine will be as follows:

Monday-Tuesday: RUN

Flat BB Bench…5x5
DB Incline Bench…3x8
T-Bar Rows…3x8
Seated Cable Row…3x8
Weighted Sit Ups

EZ Bar Curl…3x10
Hammer Curl…3x8

Friday: RUN

Lat Pulldowns…3x8
Hammer High Rows…3x8
Seated DB Press… 3x8
Side and Rear Laterals…3x10
Weighted Sit Ups

Leg Curl…3x10
Front Squat…3x8
Skull crushers…3x10

This routine is new to me, along with many of the exercises. Any tips will be greatly appreciated. Being a teenager, nutrition will be hard. Right now I am eating a lot of fatty snack foods {chips, cookies, etc} I will attempt to take these out of my diet and replace them with foods such as fruits and healthy whole wheat crackers.

Thanks a lot guys.
T/M is Tuesday and I will be starting with some running since I have a game T/M night. Wednesday I will start the weights.

Wish me luck!

I am 16 years old. 6' Tall and 170 lbs. If anyone can reccomend what weight sizes to start with on each of the individual exercises, I would greatly appreciate it. I have no idea even what to start with on exercises such as the T-Bar Row, since I have never done it in my life. If you guys could just give me an estimate. I know everyones body is diff. and I have to figure it out on my own, but i really have NO CLUE. Thanks again.

Good luck on the program! I'm working a BGB routine as well.

As for the T-bar row, it's usually a number very close to your lat pull down. Start with 90 lbs and go from there... you can always come down or add more weight. Basically you should be using enough weight that your sets are as follows:

Set 1: Full 8 reps
Set 2: Maybe 7 - 8 reps
Set 3: Just shy of 8 reps because you're wiped out.

If you can complete 3 sets of 8 reps then you need to up your weight. You know you're using the right weight when you are wiped out just shy of the required number of reps to complete your sets for any given exercise.

Good luck mate!
