First one, I'm good :P
I wasted some time......
How long was it? Where'd you find it?/How'd you develop it? How long did it take?
The first routine i tried i felt was 'good'. The key to most routines is intensity. Don't pussy out.

This was more of the old style routines and actually worked pretty well for most
all sets wher pyramid style 12,10, 8, 6 and increase wt.
This is all I remember people doing for the most part yrs ago and people gained. I think older bb will remember similar stuff. So I suppose that is a 2nd on Adam's theory.
Before I ever started working out.. I looked at the WBB Routine #1
So I was ready from the start.. because I doubt this is a bad Routine.
ive always felt good, ofcourse i keep finding new things that i feel better doing...and that is key....dont do something you dont want to because you wont preform as well as ud like
I started lifting in early 2002 but I didn't get really serious about it until April of this year... So, I guess I didn't have a perfect routine for about 2 years of lifting! I was actually totally ignorant at the beginning (who wasn't?), thinking such nonsense as, for example, "spreading my arms more on the bench press will work my outer pecs", "the smith machine will make me progress better on my bench than freeweights", or, my favourite, "the pecdeck is the king of all chest exercises". I made the standard newbie gains for a few months and then... nothing until 5 months ago when I started getting serious and reading articles on sites like this one.
i've liked all the ones i've tried. i just like the one i'm doing now best.
It took me a while. I wont say my first routines were bad, they just weren't well thought out overall. I think I was in college when I finally got the jist of how to put together a good routine. So I basically wasted about 4 years doing a little more(I did train legs a little) than the typical bench/curl jockey type routines.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil,...Cuz I'm the baddest motherf***er in the valley!

^^ Wasted gain time is suckage. I love the first day of new routines, it's exhilerating.
