    Goal is to get stronger and stay pretty lean. I'm 5'8" and 150-155 pounds.

    I just started lifting hard about 2 months ago after the Wrestling team I coached season ended. I started lifting mainly because a lot of then were stronger then me and I couldn't have that. Prior to that I did some P90x workouts off and on when I had time worked 80 hours a week and Coached Soccer on top of that. Last Winter and Spring I busted my ass off an lost 45ish pounds. I had the typical drink a lot and eat a lot diet in college.

    Switched up my workouts days
    Sunday- Chest and Shoulder and Abd
    Monday- Deadlifts and lower back
    Tuesday- Off
    Wednesday- Tris, Bis and Abs
    Thursday- Squats and legs
    Friday- Upper back, Forearms and Abs
    Saturday- Off



    Supplements are C4 Pre-workout, NOW Sports Whey Protein (Love it), and Opti Men Daily Vitamin.

    Try working out just one singular muscle group a day.
    ie. Monday: Chest
    Tuesday: Arms
    Wendsday: Back
    Thursday: Shoulders
    Friday: Legs
    So on so forth..

    It actually works miracles. Its how I put on a lot of size cause you can focus on just one thing that day, and it gives those groups enough time to rest before you hit them again so you can keep going.

    Best of luck to you on meeting your goals.

    this. and switch up exercises, no. of sets, rep ranges etc... ;)

    also, it's less about the amount of weight, ..more about the tension applied at the muscles...

    SAS.. Need I say more.
    I find it hard to just workout one muscle group a day.. example... bench press.. works out chest and triceps.. many other exercises do the same shit (though one muscle is being targeted more than the other) but still.

    Yea switching it up is key...
    For example, when I do chest I'll use barbell and cables, then the next time I do chest I'll only use dumbbells...
    I'll also go about one of two times on a muscle group just nice and easy then randomly the next time I'm on it, throw in a super set day to confuse them my muscles even more.

    Your exactly right, its not always about the amount of weight you can put up. If your not doing the exercises with proper form, you ain't gonna get the most out of your workout.

    If you want to get stronger faster. A lot has to do with forum, and the most important part is a spoter. Look up Luie Simmons on YouTube. Guy is awesome for building strength. A lot of guys do more body building than strength training. So they do a lot if isolating movements. Strength you know it all about compound movements.

    I'm 5'6 at 180. I can loose 30lb but I'm not trying to body build.the big 3, I dead lift 405, bench 265, squat 315. I might not look like I can, but when ppl see me dead lift in the gym they now have questions. I even seen people stand there and count how many rips I am able to do with 315. Think 13 was the most I did in one set.

    There's no PERFECT ideal workout. Truth be told everyone's body reacts differently. The best personal trainer is one who can adapt a workout to each individual specifically even though they may want the same results. As you mentioned some people like to do Chest + Tri in one day because when working your chest your tri is a secondary muscle. But at the same time if your wanting maximum results in your tricep build your tricep workout is more beneficial on a day where your not double working it. Make sense??
    If you have any fitness/workout questions feel free to p.m. me.

    TO THE OP = if your goal is to only increase the amount of weight your chest can push - i can provide you with a single chest routine which will gain you results weekly.

    Makes sense to me for sure. Thanks for all the advice guys.

    Hook me up with that chest workout. Keep in mind I lift at home and only have dumb bells and an.Olymipic bar.

    Any tricep stuff?
    I've been switching between, triceps extensions, narrow grip bench press,.dips with a 45 pound plate, tricep kickbacks, and skull crushers. I pick three or four on every tricep day and do drop sets. Varying the reps every time.
