    Ok, I've finally decided to get my ass in the gym. Got a free membership to a gym not far from me through my work, so I dont really have any excuses now.

    Just got a couple of questions.

    Im looking to gain mass, thats pretty much my main goal at the moment. Im currently about 125-130 pounds at the moment and I'm aiming to take in about 3000 cals a day. Is that enough to start out with?

    Also, is it possible to do a full body workout about 3 times a week, hitting all my muscles, or is it best to split my body into different sections throughout the week?

    for your first question, i think 3000 cals is enough if you are bulking but it also depends how much you weigh and stuff, i'd say to look at the sticky, it has some really good advice.
    as for your second question, i find it best to do a split routine, but again it's up to you

    Im guessing theres nothing i can use to replace squats or deadlift? Back is a little bit dodgy, should i just use really light weight and get perfect form yes?

    full body is best for a newbie, 1-2 sets per muscle group
