Hmm, ok my first question is this: The routine provided by the forums here only has you working out a muscle group once per week. I've always heard that you must work a muscle group out around 3 times a week. I'm sure it is correct, and I am wrong but I would like to know. Would you guys recommend following the workout routine on this forum?
Second, ideally you are suppose to complete a set to failure. However, I mostly work out alone and I find that I could probably do another rep or two if I had a spotter. So does this mean that when I workout alone I am not actually working out to failure and I am therefore NOT breaking down my muscle enough? Am I just wasting my time?
Lastly, diet. I worked out for about 7 months straight going consistently. Yet, I did not see many physical changes, I simply got stronger. I was able to lift probably twice the amount I was prior to working out and then plateaued... Was this due to diet? If someone could direct me to a diet thread I would appreciate it.
