    we're about 2/3 of the way through 2nd quarter now. What Issues am I looking at with starting up again, and what routine if any should I start back with? I was kindof a lifting newbie, so I wouldnt ever have a routine, I would just go to the gym and work out everything..is that not a good idea?

    naw I won't though..it just pissed me off because I worked out alot for a long distance girlfriend, then before I could see her we broke up. I'm going to stay fully motivated this time. Anyone want to help me.

    p.s. this isnt answered in the stickies

    what exactly are you looking for? what do you expect will be an issue with starting to lift again? you have lost any strength/size you gained in those 2months you lifted. do not lift everyday, and read the stickies to help figure out a routine.

    :rofl: You're doomed from the start if your only motivation was to look good for a [long distance] girlfriend. Good luck sticking with it this time around if you haven't changed your personal goals.

    but my question is: so If I strenuously work out a specific area once a week I'll actually gain more mass than if I work every area out once a day?

    :rofl:

    I love everybody who comes in here wanting to make their own routine, and when you spoon feed them something that will help them reach their goals they basically tell you that theyre set on doing their own shit. :rofl:

    Haven't you heard? It's impossible to do anything that's even the slightest bit difficult. I hear thats why guys like Maine are so weak and pathetic! :mamoru:

    there are people working 2 jobs/school part time/girlfriend/friends and still build and maintain a top notch physique.

    I guess it depends on your college. My girlfriends college always has tons of chicken and pork and hardboiled eggs out at all times. They also have coldcuts out the ass. I'm so jelous. :drool:
