  • Just starting out.

    Hi. I'm just starting to lift again after a long period of time(since high school I'm 21 now) off and halfassed attempts to make it into the gym every week during this time off. I'm very inerested in Doggcrapp's method of training because while I'm im want to gain size, I'm most intent on gaining strength.

    I've tried to get as much information as possible by searching the forums but I was hoping to run my plan by some of the more experienced people here.

    My fist question was whether or not Doggcrap's methods will be ideal for a beginner such as my self or if another routine would be better. I'm about 6'3" 190 lbs with a little bit of extra body fat, it's not visible through clothing, but I sure as hell aint cut. Just to give you an idea of the weights i'm using, about 130 for bench press reps 100 or so for military press, 350 for leg press, and 120 for cable lat pull down.

    My diet is pretty bad, (dining commons at college supplemented with Wendy's) but i try to eat plenty of tuna, eggs, and milk. I'm also taking whey protein after workouts, CLA, creatine, and L-Glutamine. I'll be able to make my diet much better after a couple of weeks as I'll have access to a kitchen and be in an apartment next school year.

    In terms of goals my first one is to reach my current body weight in muscle. After that, my eventual goal weight is 220 In muscle.

    I went through Doggcrapp's post describing his technique and selected these exercises for each group.

    Day 1

    Chest: Barbell Bench Press, Incline Barbell Bench, Decline Dumbell Press

    Shoulders: upright Row, Dumbell seated Lateral Raise, Military Press

    Triceps: Skullcrushers, Close Grip Bench Press, Triceps Extension

    Back Width: I'm not sure which excercises are best for back width as opposed to

    Back Depth: back depth

    Day 2

    Biceps: Dumbell Curl, Preacher Curl, Barbell Curl

    Forearms: Barbell Wrist Curl, Hammer Curl, Reverse Wrist Curl

    Calves: Seated Calf Raise, one Leg Dumbell Calf Raise, Dumbell Reverse Calf Raise

    Hamstrings: Leg Curls, Straight Leg Deadlift, Hamstring Raise

    Quadriceps: Squats, Leg Press, Hack Squats

    I am hoping some of you could review my exercises, diet and supplements and then make comments/suggestions. It would also be helpful if someone could post or direct me to a list of the ideal reps/sets for these exercises.

    Thank you very much in advance for taking the time to review this. I hope i didn't re-post asking about too much that has already been posted.
