Alright everyone, I'm 19 years old, 6"3 and currently only weigh 160lbs. I was 171 a few months ago, but then I went in the army and due to the training I was doing and small meals I lost absolutely loads. I've gained about 5-6lbs since I left 6 weeks ago but that's basically just fat, as I've been eating a lot but haven't been able to train as I left due to a broken wrist.
It took me about 2 years to get to 171, when I first went into a gym at the age of 17 I probably weighed no more than 140.
Anyway, I'm feeling pretty depressed about how my body is now compared to before going in the army. I was hardly massive before, but I was getting a lot of comments about how I was looking bigger, although at the time I didn't believe it of course! I worked my arse off to get to that size, and looking back at pictures I did look a lot healthier.
I know the basic principals for someone with a body like mine, eat sh1t loads, lots of sleep, compound exercises etc. But I've always liked to do isolation exercises as well as I like the pump you get in the specific muslce group (whether this is effective or not).
So once my wrist is fully healed I was looking at something like this-
Monday and Thursday-
AM- Deadlifts, chest (3 exercises), biceps (3 exercises).
PM - Back - Barbell rows, plus 2 or 3 other exercises.
Tuesday and Friday -
AM- Shoulders (3 exercises), triceps (3 exercises).
PM - Legs - Squats, extensions, curls.
Then maybe have Wednesday as an ab work out and rest at the weekend.
Does anyone reckon this would be effective? Or is it stupid doing all the isolation exercises too? I wanna get at least back to when I was around 171 and then obviously push on from there!
Sorry for the long thread, I just really wanna get some good advice from you guys on here who obviously know a lot about it! I've looked on every website going, but I thought if I put this post then I could get some advice specific to me.
EDIT - Just incase anyone was unsure (doubt you were), I am ofcourse an ectomorph with an extremely high metabolism!
Thanks a lot.
