    Hi, long time reader, first time poster.

    I recently found out that my dad has this exercising booklet called 'Universal Bodybuilding' and I began to read it. It describes a beginner's first two weeks as this (minus cottage cheese in the weight gain diet):


    WORKOUT
    Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday
    Abdominal Exercises:

    -Leg Pushout 2 sets, 8 reps
    -Alternated Leg Kicks

    Monday, Wednesday, Friday
    Weight Training:

    -Press 1 set, 8 reps
    -Upright Rowing 1 set, 8 reps
    -Bench Press 1 set, 8 reps
    -Squat 1 set, 10 reps
    -Wide-Grip Chin-Up to Back of Neck 1 set, 8 reps
    -Abdominal Exercises

    PROTEIN DIET
    Breakfast:
    -
    2 eggs and bacon
    -1 glass of milk

    Morning Snack:
    -
    fruit

    Lunch:
    -
    meat and vegetables
    -1 glass of milk

    Afternoon Snack:
    -fruit

    Supper:

    -1 glass of milk

    -peanut butter sandwich
    -1 glass of milk

    WEIGHT GAIN
    Breakfast:
    -
    2 glasses of milk
    -bowl of cereal OR eggs and bacon
    -3 slices of toast with butter and jelly

    Morning Snack:
    -
    1 glass of milk
    -peanut butter sandwich

    Lunch:
    -
    1 glass of milk
    -soup and 2 meat sandwiches (or peanut butter)
    -dessert

    Afternoon Snack:
    -1 glass of milk
    -pie or cake

    Supper:
    -
    1 glass of milk
    -a well balanced meal of meat, potatoes and vegetables
    -2 slices of bread and butter
    -dessert

    Snack Before Bed:
    -1 glass of milk
    -peanut butter or jam sandwich

    I'm not going to post the weight loss diet, as I don't really need it. If you'd like to read it, I'd be happy to post it. Now, to the point. I posted this because I want to know if you guys think that this is a good diet to go on. I've been thinking of bulking up, as I'm 6'2" and 198 lbs. I've got a lot of fat around my stomach/hip area, but to look at me, you wouldn't say that I was fat. Sorry I don't have a picture to show what I mean more clearly. I've also got another question: Can I go on the weight gain diet while doing the workout posted above?

    Thanks in advance!

    so you're trying to get bigger?

    then that all sucks.
    1) wtf at 4 days of only abs? I do abs every other day after my other exercises
    2) weight trainging days dont have enough, and you shouldnt do the same stuff every time
    3)no rest day?

    and for diet, it sucks also.
    1)not enough food
    2) your protein diet has almost no protein LOL
