    I've only been reading this forum for a few days and have realized I need a workout change. I've learned a lot from this site already, but have a lot more to learn. Anyways, i'm 22 yrs, 6' 205lbs, bf%(guessing)15-20. for the past year my workout has pretty much been one body part a day(mon-chest, tues-back, wed-shoulders, thurs-bi's & tri's, fri-legs). I'd like to try something new. I was thinking the 'wanna be big' routine or this one that chris mason suggested to ca_richard(but doing legs only once a week):

    Mon/Thurs

    bench press- 2 sets x 5/10
    dips- 2 sets x 10/10
    skull crushers- sets x 10/10
    squats- 2 sets x 8/15
    leg extension- 1 set x 10
    leg curl- 1 set x 10
    calf raise- 2 sets x 10/10

    Tues/Fri

    chins- 2 sets to failure
    rows (T-bar or on a machine with a support for the chest)-
    2 sets x 6/8
    v-bar pulldowns- 1 set x 10
    military press- 2 sets x 10/10
    straight-bar curl- 2 sets x 8/10
    shrugs- 2 sets x 10/10

    my cardio is an hour of kickboxing 3-4 days a week. I eat pretty well and putting on weight is not a problem for me. I just want that weight to be mostly muscle. Hopefully i have posted enuff info for you all so you could give me a lil advice. And any criticism is welcomed. Thanx in advance for any advice and keep up the good work everybody!

    I think both of those routines are great if you give them an honest try. If you are doing kickboxing 3-4 days per week, I would suggest only lifting max 3 times per week. You may even want to cut out a day of kickboxing. Rest is good!

    I like both routines...

    I am on the wannabebig routine now but am getting a bit bored of it...

    I am still gaining on it so when things slow up i am going to take a week off and try Chris's routine I think. I liked the look of it...

    Let me know how you get on with Chris's routine if you try it

    Thanx for the replies, LATMAN and Hulk! I am going to do my lifting on Mon, wed, frid and cardio on tues., thurs and maybe sat. I am pretty much going to do the wannabebig routine to start out with. It seems like it would suit me the best. I will start it tonight and am pretty excited, I really look for it to improve my workout a lot. I will be posting my results and may start a journal. I want to see my positive results written.

    Hulk: How long have you been on the WBB routine?

    Looks good. It is always a good idea to give your body complete rest from exercise at least one day a week. Good luck with it!
