    I used to workout 5 times a week before summer, decent in strength for my age/weight (i was 5' 11'' 135ish lbs benching 150). Well i broke my collarbone, so couldnt lift or run. Now im at around 155lbs.

    Anyway, i dont have much time to get big/strong. I wont have to worry about my weight until wrestling season starts (winter), so im just gonna try to get a big as possible in ~2-3 months.

    My bro lifts, and he told me to do this:

    mon - chest
    tues - arm
    wed - rest
    thur - legs
    fri - abs
    sat/sun - rest

    Told me to eat 4 times a day, get plenty of milk/yogurt/cheese.

    Hows this plan? And are there any excersices i should really focus on? Just wanna widen up and get my strength back :dunno:

    Oh and i wanna work on my back, what exercises should i do when and should i do them?

    eat 6 times a day, get some back and shoulders in there asap. Take a look under my name in the logs and see some of my lifting days to get an idea. You can cut the volume back a bit from what i do.

    MON - chest & tri
    TUES - back and bi
    WED - shoulders and traps
    THURS - Legs
    FRI - chest and tri
    SAT - back and bi

    Start mon off with shoulders and traps, then so forth and so on. Every muscle group gets worked every 5 days. don't forget to run like most meatheads don't.

    Do it right or don't do it at all.
    Oh, and as an avid boxer I don't gain weight I'm going to have to work so hard to loose and you shouldn't as a wrestler.

    hmm i was under the impression you should only do a part once a week for recovery

    i do a six day split
    monday-off
    tues-shoulders
    wed back
    thurs chest
    fri legs
    sat biceps
    sunday triceps

    i used this routine when i was your weight (around 155) and after 3 months i got up to around 170 eating about 7 small meals a day and lots of protein (should be approx 1.5-2 times your bodyweight in grams)

    i only spent an hour to 2 hrs a day at the gym

    Recovery time is 2-3 days. Look at the program and do the math.

    2hrs shit, you should work a little faster.

    So should i scrap my plan and just go with your plan? Or how would i fit shoulders/back into mine?

    And should i be doing high weight low reps or high reps low weight for strength? High weigh low reps is what ive always heard :dunno:

    Got this from wikipedia.. dont know if its true



    Sets of 1 to 5 repetitions primarily develop strength, with less impact on muscle size and none on endurance.
    Sets of 6 to 12 repetitions develop a balance of strength, muscle size and endurance.
    Sets of 13 to 20 repetitions develop muscle size, and particularly endurance, with less impact on strength.
    Sets of more than 20 repetitions are considered to be an aerobic exercise.

    EDIT: link- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weight_training ... good read :wiggle:

    Don't feel that you as a noob need to hit chest/tri and back/bi twice a week. More than likely you will be doing a ton of volume but it all depends on the volume you do.

    because it's retarded, rest days are just as important as lifting days

    just stick to a 4-5 day a week training routine and eat lots of food. I started out using a routine like

    Chest/abs
    Shoulders/traps
    Back/rear delt
    Legs
    Arms/forearms
