my friends tell me..."lift until you cant lift anymore" (which is about 8 or 10 reps with the heavy weights)...say if i were doing biceps....then i would go until i couldnt curl anymore....then rinse repeat....
i was told that u gain muscle size when u lift heavier weights for less reps and u gain strength when u do more reps with less weights
i am only interested in gaining muscle size for now
here is my workout:
bench press (until failure, 8-10 reps)
biceps (15 reps each arm until failure)
shoulders (30's if anyone knows what that is, and shrugs)
triceps (10 reps of skullcrushers until failure)
abs (50 reps)
then i repeat 4 more times
am i doing anything wrong?
am i missing a muscle?
thanks a lot much help needed
you're missing a leg muscle and a back muscle
what should i do for those?
um well, i would suggest getting a full blown routine here...
first off, you def. didnt get all ur muscles, legs are important and should be worked as hard or harder than ur other muscles.
and are you doing this workout everyday? if so, that will prolly lead to overtraining. and you need to work your lats.
try this to get a good idea of a balanced routine...http://www.wannabebig.com/article.ph...id=25&pageid=3
I would suggest this routine. It sounds like its a little different than what your used to, but really does work great.
375/300/365 Goal by summer:415/315/415
It looks like you are new at this... just do a lot of reading for a week, compile all your thoughts then post some questions again. That would be much better.

Height: 6ft 4
Current weight: 226 lbs
WBB1, Bubba - It brought me from 119 to 135 in about 2 months. Lift, eat, repeat.
And stop training to failure with every set.
22 - 5'10@236lbs!
Bench - 325 (old)
Squat - 455x2 (old)
Deadlift - 500(old)
Total: 1280lbs 100% raw
The key to my exercise program is this one simple truth: I hate my body.
thank you all
Good luck. Just be patient it does not happen overnight. Your hard work will pay off.
Train,train hard.Eat,eat lots and sleep even more.
