    I work out 3 times a week

    Monday - Chest & Bicep
    Wednesday - Back & Tricep
    Friday - Shoulders & Legs

    I try to do all exercises so I change my routine every 2nd workout. My gym is not the prettiest in the world but it has a lot of equipment and machines. It's a mans gym. No fancy shit like treadmills and bikes.

    I mainly train to get big in size, however i'm switching to strength & cardio once i reach 175lbs
    i'm 6ft tall and 160lbs is still on the skinnier side, and when i started in September my weight was only 145lbs.

    Whey protein is also a yes for me since my appetite is not on par with the average ameriburgers.

    personally I don't believe in muscle confusion (as in "shocking" your muscles to force new growth), I just go to failure in every set of an exercise and progressively add weights to that same exercise every week or so.

    What you are doing is more or less hypertrophy, in hypertrophy you dont shock the muscles.

    But shocking can create great effects. But one got to tell, shocking here is not literal. It refers to change isolation points and forcing your body to create lean muscle tissue such that it covers every side of the muscle.

    Frankly speaking I cant see how you plan to get big with 3 days a week and partial body workout. You each muscle group takes almost 26 days per month with no exercise. It is way too long for any type of gain.

    As far as i can see you are trying to take 72 hours between trainings. That is normally right but you are doing partial trainings, so actually you do not need that much time for recovery. Just saying...

    I'm still seeing good results though. The progress is huge when i compare my 65kg (before gym) and 73kg photos and i'm much stronger now. Proper nutrition did the job?

    Proper nutrition is indeed almost %50 percent.

    But from what I read you change weight pretty fast which tells me that you also built good amount of fat around your protein structures. Fast changes shows that fat is not yet stabilised that is good new. But in long term can be unhealthy.

    I would recommend you to do 4 day per week minimum work out with at least 1 active rest day and of course keep up your good nutrition.

    Btw. when i say 3 day is not enough to get big i talk for perfect lean muscle structure and body building. Of course you will see changes even if you do a single day with roper food and training. Even an hour of sports is better than non at all :)

    I am always here to help and advices let me know if you want to get into specifics.

    Here is my workout routine. I start my day out doing a lot of storm dancing. I do a lot of callisthenic exercises. My main mode of transportation is power walking. I don't do much anaerobic exercise because I do not want to get too much bulk. I know that I can do a lot of damage if I focus my energy correctly. Instead of focusing on the point of impact, I usually focus well behind the body. For instance, I might take one finger and use the eye socket as the point of impact and aim behind the head.

    Atm I'm returning from long illness so no routine for like 8 months,

    I'm back at jogging 3 days a week and playing squash and doing some wallclimbing (2 hours both each week) this is just to get my body up and running again as I've been a couch patatoo for 8months.

    But before, I used to play Rugby on national level;

    - Legs day on Monday (squats, lunches etc.(

    - Cardio on Tuesday (20 min running in the morning) and normal rugby training 1,5 hours in the evening.

    - Core day on wednesda (abs, back and sholders mainly)

    - Cardio on Thursday (20 min running in the morning) and normal rugby training 1,5 hours in the evening.

    - Arms and chest day on Friday.

    I normaly did sets of 15,12,10,8, asmp (as many as posible) with 45 sec. rest in between. per workout, then moved to the next. I would do about 4 or 5 different workouts on one set of muscles per day. it would take me about 35 min a day.

    It got my oversall fitness on high standard, it got me ready for the games and not injured a lot. Note that I'm a woman and I wasn't planning on becoming a body builder so I guess it depends what you want to achieve.

    I based my workout on the TSC program from Chris Kruger. It's a 10 week program, I loved doing it and I used it as a foundation to create my own schedual.

    I'm planing on doing the TSC program again this summer so I'll be ready to play rugby again next season.

    Sorry to hear that, I really know how it feels. I was an american football player for 4 years in first division (not U.S). Had injuries.

    Get well soon and kick arse when you are back :D

    My workout routine is just a simple workout with few dance, aerobics steps and proper diet with a simple massage which helps me to reduce the fats of fat cells and also the skin and health issues like back pain leg pain and the cellulites on the body. All this helps me to be fit and healthy.

    Here's the thing. Male and Female physiology differ quite a lot when it comes to gaining muscle, losing fat, body toning, developing flexibility, stamina, endurance, etc.

    Just to clear this up, I'm not implying that female physiology is inferior, no, it's simply different than male. Different meaning they require similar but different type of training and diets.

    Now, the thing about routine is never stick to just one.

    Always keep cycling through different routines at least once a month, this applies to both male and female.

    The type of routine differs though. It depends on your needs.

    My routine works for me, it will not work for you. I have a habit of doing 600 push-ups in a row 2000 a day, it has been reduced to 300 now and 1200 a day, after my injury. Will you be able to do that? That's my point, i can do that because i have been doing that since i was 10, i started with a mere 60, but our Gojuryu Karate instructor took us to extremes, he used to make us do 600 in one set, then only a 30 second break and another 600, this went on till we did at least 2400 push-ups, but he didn't count the extra 400, he counted them as 2000. He used to say "if you want me to count the 400, then you're gonna have to do 2600 push-ups instead". We didn't want that. He was the same with crunches, squats, sit-ups, pull-ups, every exercise, even running, we used to run with 10lbs weights around our ankles for 30 minutes straight in the early morning with no breaks, then a minute of break and another 30minute run back to the class. After all that, we would start our actual combat training.

    Would you be able to do that? If yes, kudos, if not that's my point. My routine is for me, your routine cannot be the same, you can handle a different level, none of our routines who post here can help you, you have to choose your own routine based on your needs, your goals, your body type and how much you can endure in a day or in an hour or 30 minutes.

    Another thing is the quality of the workout, having both quality and quantity is great, but if you had to pick one, always pick quality, train smart, not hard, even if it's a 10-15 minute routine, if it's effective it'll get you way more results than a 2hr sessions would.

    You see, whenever you workout the first thing you should know is why are you working out? For what purpose?

    There are many different reasons, so there are specific workouts for specific purposes.

    For example, Cardio exercises are good for the heart, to increase endurance, to help provide your body with more nutrients through blood flow, but it should be a supplementary exercise to let's say Calisthenics, which help with the growth of lean muscle mass, increase strength, mobility, flexibility and agility and you don't need any equipment for either.

    Lastly, but not the least, the diet, without a proper nutritional diet, all the exercises in the world aren't going to help you reach the peak level of physical fitness. Again, a generic diet should include all 5 food groups; Meat, Dairy, Fruits and Vegetables, Pulses, rice and bread, Sugar and fat containing foods.
    Now how you consume these food items depends on the type of results you want. For example, to simplify, for weight loss and/or lean muscle gains, you'll be eating more lean foods and protein diets, and less of the fatty and high-protein foods, vice versa for bulky weight gains.

    You see, there are two types of weight and muscle gains, bulk and lean muscle. There are different exercise and diet sets for both. for weight loss, there are two types, complete "model-like" size zero, which is not recommended for a healthy life, the other is a healthy lean muscle gain and zero body fat, and an other one where you want the perfect curves, with the help of some healthy amount of body fat, but still retain the toned and muscular body-type look.

    Now those options were based on a female physiology, male physiology require different types of options, but the two main are bulk muscle body-type and lean muscle body-type. Then there are sub-categories in those two areas, which differ on the levels of bulk and lean muscle. Male models have a different body-type than a body-builder and both of them have different body-types than a Military man or a MMA fighter.

    This topic is much more complicated and contains a lot of data to just write it all here, but i hope you got the general idea.
    My main point being that your routine is something only you can plan and unless and until the person you're asking knows your physiology really well, they can't design a routine for you, at least not a one where you'll get the desired results. At max, you'll get one that's designed for the majority, a generic one that has worked on majority of individuals who tried it. That's how most workout programs are. Specifically designed programs surpass the generic ones by light years, they get you the results you want, not the ones that the majority got.


    Edit: Good Luck in finding your routine. My advice? Just try out everything, pick what suits you the best, do that for a month or two, then try something else, something more challenging and then pick what suits you the best, and stick with that for 2 months, then repeat, with your challenges increasing every time. Remember to pick something that gets you results, not just something that your comfortable in, comfort doesn't get results, hard work does, but I'm sure you already know that. It doesn't have to be very hard, just enough to take you to your personal limits and then break that barrier. No need to go all hardcore, just hard enough to create a challenge for yourself, a challenge you can take on and successfully overcome. Once again, Good Luck to you :)

    Everyday run with 100lbs worth of weight 3 miles. Do 500 push ups, do sit ups until my tummy hurts. But then when I out grown this, up the weight and the length of push ups and sit ups

    Let people do what they need to do to make them happy, mind your own business, and do what you need to do to make you happy.

     

    The End.

    Walking and rowing is working for me. A year ago I got severe anxiety attacks about my body and since then decided to get fit... I couldn't even walk like 100m without collapsing. So I gave up smoking, drinking, I eat lean meats and veg, and I walk. Yesturday I did a 4 mile hilly walk with the dag and wasn't even out of breathe.

    Workout wise I bought a concept2 rowing machine and I do tabata, so 30 seconds of rowing, 10 seconds rest, x10. I get to about 7-8 (athletes struggle to do 10) with some severe pain.

    Lost 4 stone (50lb) so far got another 8/90lb to go...

    I don't do any weight training. I am big enough as it is.

    Stimulant wise all I do is mix cayenne pepper, turmeric, cinnamon and ginger into 4 gelatin capsules and neck them every morning.
