    I just started working out at the gym regularly a few weeks ago. I've run 3 times a week for a while but that was about it, i would like to just generally be more cut and a little more bulk. I've been doing variations of this for the past few weeks and I've finally written down a set workout schedule that i think works for me. But again, I'm kinda new at this so if anyone has any serious suggestions, I'm definately open. Oh and i didn't know the name of some things so forgive me.

    3 sets for everything doesnt say much about what you are doing.
    From a high level, looks like you are like every other newb at the gym this time of year and over training and setting yourself up for burnout and ultimate failure.
    Focus your efforts on 100% diet and training 5 nights a week.
    You will get more out of it in the long run.

    I think if you raise weight and lower reps you'd be training more for strength, not size

    You should train as though you are trying to achieve the most potential out of your body regardless of the final outcome.
    No way will you wake up one day with a body like Arnold's by surprise, you are better off training as hardcore as possible to reap the benefits. You will have plenty of "notice" before you wake up brolly.
