OKAY I WANT MY BODY SORTA LIKE THIS
WELL I KNOW IT WONT COME SO QUICKLY
BUT KIND OF A THICK BUILD + BEING LEAN.
IS CREATINE + CARDIO + HEAVY SETS AND LOW REPS A GOOD IDEA FOR ME + MULTI-VITAMIN.
Eat and lift heavy.
first off you need to stop typing in caps
second, that good of a build is extremely hard to obtain without years of training, I think with goals that high you're setting yourself up for failure
third, get your diet straight
and lastly, low reps are more for strength than hypertrophy, and it seems like you are training for hypertrophy. Try moderate reps (8-12).
6'1 - 195
Crossfit Total: Press: 135 - Squat: 315 - Deadlift: 365
Competition Lifts: Clean: 205 - Bench: 205
if you read my post i didnt say i wanted it over the summer.Originally Posted by D Breyer
i said i want that in the long-term.
Trust me thats still a physique your not gonna get from taking some creatine and hitting the gym a few times a week. That guy has good genetics, alot of discipline, and uses steroids and it probably took him a very long time to get in that kind of shape. Set smaller goals and keep setting them as you go on to avoid dissapointment and stay on track.

First off, for the routine - http://www.wannabebig.com/article.php?articleid=25
Next, check out this article at - http://www.t-nation.com/portal_inclu...-061-diet.html
for you diet info
Maybe wait on the creatine for a couple of months until your body gets used to the weightlifting. Just my opinion.
Get yourself a good protein powder like Nitrean or Optimum Nutrition Whey along with a good multi (Flintstones, seriously, yes seriously or if thats too kiddie GNC multi mega gold NO IRON).
Anyhow, just do alot of research around this board and ask away with questions.
I hate to bash the WBB routines, but they only work each muscle once a week. It's best to work your muscles 2-3x a week, if your going for size.

Some things work well for some people, some other things work better for other people.

True but from what i've read, protein sythesis lasts about 36-72 hours for the muscle after it's been worked, so why not work the muscle twice a week to keep this going. You may say that you should wait a week to let your muscle fully recover/repair, but from what I've seen this process can take up to a month.Originally Posted by ExtremeAnabolic

Anyway I was commenting on your statement that said for size you have to train more often than 1x a week. This is not necessary.Originally Posted by gator
I think that is definitely at least debatable, if not wrong.Originally Posted by ExtremeAnabolic
I feel confident that at least some "senior members" would say there is a definite difference between these two workouts:
Monday: Bench 225 x 10 x 8
Monday: Bench 225 x 10 x 4
Th: Bench 225 x 10 x 4
You're not reading my post correctly. tuttutOriginally Posted by Bizatch
Volume is more important than how many times you train. As is weight. You can do DB flyes with five pound pink weights 7 days a week, but you will not grow from that. Again the AMOUNT OF TIMES (NOT VOLUME OR WEIGHT) IS NOT IMPORTANT.
Again to achieve size you do not ABSOLUTELY have to train more than once a week.
