    100 curls in each arm

    And that's it. Do this every weekday, and you'll bulk up in no time. Start off with less, and work your way up to- and beyond- that.
    Lmao that's a terrible routine. It's great if you have little time and wanna get in aquick workout, but to do that every weekday? Your body will look so unnatural.

    There is absolutly no reason to do more than 10 repititions per set. If you can do more than 10 reps, you need more weight. By doing so many reps, you can put some serious stress on your muscles.

    Well I dunno if you mean strictly 10 or less reps for heavy lifting (building muscles) but lifting high reps 15-20 with lower weights not only boosts muscular endurance but also makes the muscles you build lean instead of big and bulky. Which tends to look a tad more on the natural side (in my opinion)

    Course you need lean muscles to __________ (cookie to anyone who guesses the sport) well.

    Swim.

    Yeah, I guess I'm just used to my routine designed for gaining mass :/

    I know for a fact that 80 reps per set is not good at all.

    Every weekday I have Weight Training and Conditioning.



    Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I am up in the weight room, and on Tuesday and Thursday I do abs and back, both lasting about 50 minutes.

    Every day when getting home after, I run on the treadmill for 30-45 minutes.

    Weekends I lift my own weights and do more jogging/running, but not as much as the weekdays. Mostly my recovery time.

    On the days I lift weights, I do a full body workout. I do a lot of weight, but I don't max out on everything with very little reps, I do quite a bit of weight, but a good amount of reps at the same time. But ofcourse you have to find out how much you can max every once and awhile.

    Right now I am at 260 pounds benching (1 rep), 65 pound dumbell curl(2 reps, it is the biggest one they have), 125 pounds bar curl (2 reps), 250 pounds butterfly(6 reps, the most weight available on the machine).

    Since school started I lost 25 pounds. I am 6'2" and now I am down to 265 pounds. My goal by the end of school was 250 lb, but my ideal weight would preferably be around 225 pounds.

    Also, before school started, due to not lifting weights for quite some time, I could only bench about 130 pounds. So so far in half a school year I increased it by double. But I am fat so it is easier for me, as opposed to a skinnier more fit person. Maybe I can hit 300 by the end of the school year?

    Funny, why the hell did I picture Zero as a skinny white boy? I like that routine though. I'm pretty heavy too so I know what you mean by "it's easier to lift more weight". Since I'm in martial arts, I always go for more lean muscles. Bulky muscles will ruin your punches while lean muscle will make them faster and harder.

    I benched 300 pounds last Friday.

    Was my goal before the end of the school year. Now my goal is to get it more than once. :p So in about 3 months I increased my max about 40-50 pounds.

    I remember during the first year of weight lifting, I was raising my benchpress max by 5lbs a week during the first 10 months. It's crazy when that happens. I felt like I was a freakin' machine. I was like, if I do this week, I'll be at 180 next week. Then 185 the next. I ended up staying at around 205 for awhile. It's a great feeling, though.
    I play videogames with a grapefruit on my ****. It helps me get in the zone.

    Monday-Friday: Cardio 20-40 minutes, STEAM ROOM: 15 minutes=)

    Monday Wednesday Friday: Biceps, Chests, Deltoids, 60 minutes

    Tuesdays Thursdays: Back, Triceps, 60 minutes

    Saturday & Sunday: Muay Thai, play around lifting, 90 minutes




    I don't believe in incorporating ab routines into my workout at this point because I've seen more results just thinning up the layer of fat on your stomach by lessening your diet on fatty foods that contain high sodium and carbs (that you don't work off) and drinking water + cardio. Tada!

    I lost seven pounds immediately after I went to work for Target as an overnight receiver. I guess the trick is to travel up and down a ladder 50 times a night.

    MONDAY Week 1-2 (10 reps) Week 3-4 (8 reps) Week 5-6 (6 reps) Week 7-8 (4 reps)
    Squats
    Leg Press
    Leg Extension
    Leg Curl
    Calf Raises
    Lunges
    Stiff Leg Deads

    TUESDAY
    Flat Bench Press
    Incline Bench Press
    Decline Bench Press
    Flat Bench Flys
    Pec Dec
    Chest Pullover
    Tricep Choice
    Bicep Choice

    THURSDAY
    Dead Lift
    Shrugs
    Seated Pulldown
    Seated Rows
    Back Extension
    Good Mornings

    FRIDAY
    Front Squat
    Hang Clean
    Shoulder Press
    Upright Row
    Lateral Raises
    Front Raises

    SATURDAY
    Speed Bench
    Preacher Curl
    Tricep Pushdown
    Hammer Curl
    Overhead Tricep Extension
    Cable Curls
    Dips
    Wrist Curls

    So this is the routine I devised to get myself back on track. I'm still considering a return to playing football, so this is quite similar to what I was doing before but each day is more specific. Saturday is more of my beach workout day, so I don't consider my weeks worth of exercise to strenuous. I also plan on doing cardio and abs four days a week, and weeks 1-2 are just three sets and after that the plan is to move to four sets. I've never done a 5 day a week lifting program, so this is experimental for me. I think for me it's not a bad idea because when I give myself to much time off, I make bad choices such as eating to much on the weekends and doing nothing.
