    You will get some different answers here these days. But I still prefer a basic and abreviated routine for beginners. Something that focusses on getting stronger in the squat, deadlift, bench, rows and overhead press. In the beginning, increased strength and weight will give you the quickest results.

    I really like this looks of the routine that you scanned in that thread. I bumped it! That's my type of routine.

    To the OP, it's always a good idea to keep things very basic at first, make sure you eat enough, and enough of the right foods. Don't just think because you are eatting "a lot" of food that it means you will gain good weight.

    Make sure you are getting in your protein and carbs, and your fats can fall in where needed. But if you are having a terrible time gaining weight add definitely add more fats, and even more carbs.

    At a BW of 130 you should be able to get your calories in rather easily.

    You can follow what OffRoad has written out: hit the big lifts and don't overdo it. 3 days a week should do you well and train hard.

    You may want to detail a bit more about what you are eatting. I think the eatting aspect is much more important than most give it credit.

    Consistency is the key to success within this sport...
