I am 6'6 255 lbs. I recently started the wanna be big workout routine a month ago. I've been going to the gym 3 times a week. Mondays i work my chest and back, wednesday my legs, and friday my arms and shoulders.
I have a few questions.
1. Should i incorporate some cardio in this schedule, i usually like the run 3 miles or 30 minutes, which ever comes first. How many times should i include cardio in my routine and on which days?
2. I've heard that since im a big guy already, it would be best for me to work out with weights that arent very heavy..100 lbs or less. Should i work out with heavy weights and simply do my routine and feel little or no burn, or should i lift heavy weights, as much as my body can handle..given that i complete the set/reps.
3. Should a guy my height and size be taking protein shakes. I try to eat a lot of fish and proteinated foods. If you do think that i should be taking protein shakes, how much should i take, when (pre workout, post workout, off days), and which one should i buy.
Hope to hear from you all.
