Hey guys my name is Christian. I'm almost 18 years old and i just got a Powertec Multi System Home Gym. I'm a bug guy. 6'3" and about 290 pounds. I was just trying to see if anyone could maybe give me some advice on like a workout routine including eating and everything. Just as some benchmarks I was doing 3 sets of 8 on about 210 lbs. for the bench. 3 sets of 8 on 240 for squats. 3 sets of 8 on 175ish for the lat pull downs. Those are just some of the major ones. So i was hoping someone with some experience could just give me some pointers and kind of set me up with a routine or something. I'm a senior in high school but i get out at 11:15 every day so i have from then on to workout Monday through Friday except on Tuesday's and Thursday's I have MMA at 7:00. And I usually work on Friday and Saturday at 5:00 so thats my time schedule for the week. Thanks a lot guys,
Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe. Great routine.

The routines those guys mentioned work best with free weights. Since you are using a leverage machine, you might want to get advice from guys that use that kind of equipment. Those routines are basic because they need to be for the intensity involved. Your squats (etc.) won't be AS intense, so you can probably get away with doing a little more.
