It really depends on what your goals are because these days there are routines for just about anything. Sport specific routines, endurance, fat burn, speed, strength. etc,.

Although I wouldn't use any of those. Just do the 5x5, get big, get girls, make millions. You probably won't get girls or make millions though, but do it anyway.
Bodybuilding.com and their forums are pretty useful but I wouldn't believe everything I read. Everything is taken to the extreme on there.

I'll check out bodybuilding.com.

I used to workout for football, I was very strong and kinda big. I'm gonna come up with something that will make me more lean and cut, a beach bod.

How do I improve my bench. I'm being recruited by several universities and am kind of embarrassed by how little I rep at the moment. I'm about 6'1 1/2, 190 and my max is probably barely over a plate.

Bench! Seriously tho, you need to start on a plan that involves heavy sets (5 or less reps) and follow linear progression (go up in weight every week possible). Above all tho, your going to need to eat a crap load.

Other things to do: Train your triceps with close grip benches, weighted dips, weighted diamon push-ups, etc. Train your lats on the same plane as the bench (ie: heavy rows, not lat pull downs). Make sure you don't overtrain the bench bc its the lift you want to get better at, once a week is plenty.

Here is a good article on benching:

http://www.tmuscle.com/free_online_a...B7A1F-hg.hydra

*** Also, don't neglect squats and deadlifts, they help your bench too.

That is an awesome article I also like the one he wrote about squatting.

Yeah squatting will help the bench a lot. I was skeptical at first, but then noticed after I hit like 225lb in squat that my bench started increasing.

And now squatting has become one of my favorite exercises.

I've plateaued. Not to the point where I can't do more weight but to the point where if I go up, I'm going to need a spotter. Ugh, workout buddies are crucial. I hate asking random people working out for a spot. I feel like I'm interrupting them.

Stop being a ***** and go to the gym 3-4 times a week. No other way. Have a workout partner to spot you.

Good article posted by Rob too. Without proper form you will get nowhere fast.

You can do it on your own time and it gives you an outline for a diet perfect for endurance and fat burning.
I just ordered P90 (thanks for reminding me about that option). Not ready for P90X, but we'll see how P90 goes.

Question:
Aside from the difference in energy throughout the day, does it really make a ton of difference to workout in the morning vs. evening?

Reason I ask is that I have to leave for work at 0620, so I wake up at ~0545. It's a real ************ to wake up at 0500 (which is the minimum I'd need to be awake to do anything in the morning). Waking up at that time is an option, just not my favorite one.

No, not really. For fat burning purposes, I suppose fasted is best, but it can be dangerous. Just do it at night rather than crushing yourself by waking up at 5 AM every day.

Do it at night like Rob said and you'll sleep like a baby. Make sure to eat enough throughout the day so you'll have energy.

btw, I respect anyone who wakes up at 5:45 am.

I wouldn't put my body through that. I'd be tired throughout the day if I work out in the morning. I'd rather work out at night and get a great night sleep in instead of dragging through the day. Wednesdays I have to get to the gym before 8 to get a good workout in because I have class the rest of the day. Not my favorite but I feel like I wasted a day if I don't make my way to the gym.

I used my old roommate's P90 for a week or so awhile back, and my energy levels throughout the day were much higher than normal. It's just really hard to wake up that early.

I was just like you about a year ago. Same size, same bench max, maybe a bit more. I've improved it by about 75 lbs. (maybe more...haven't done max yet) in about 4 months.

Rob's advice was good, mine is pretty much the same.

Eating is the biggest and most important thing. I went from eating a small breakfast and barely eating anything til I got home from school to loading up on protein and healthy carbs at the cafeteria in university. If you're still at home your resources will probably be limited, but at the very least pack yourself a bunch of peanut butter sandwiches for the day. You'll also need whey protein for post-workouts and possibly breakfast if you need to supplement it.

I'd say it's better to get 2 chest workouts in during the week. My pecs recover fast so you should see how you feel in the beginning. Either way, you wanna do heavy sets of no more than 5-6 reps.

If you have a big frame or even just an undeveloped one, the diet combined with more intense lifting should improve your strength dramatically Camp doesn't start until August so you have more than enough time to get to respectable numbers for a 1st year (rep 185 a handful of times). I lift more pretty much every time I bench.

What school are you leaning towards?

The lastest I workout is 11 and that's because the gym doesn't open until then on Sunday. I love working out first thing in the morning and I'm always dead by the end of the day from school anyway. I had to work out at 5ish last week because of tests and was so exhausted my entire work out.

Just started lifting again a few weeks ago and squatted 450X5 for my fifth set, then went and did box jumps right after. I can feel my legs givin out when I walk up or down the steps.

Rob's advice was good, mine is pretty much the same.

Eating is the biggest and most important thing. I went from eating a small breakfast and barely eating anything til I got home from school to loading up on protein and healthy carbs at the cafeteria in university. If you're still at home your resources will probably be limited, but at the very least pack yourself a bunch of peanut butter sandwiches for the day. You'll also need whey protein for post-workouts and possibly breakfast if you need to supplement it. I read Rob's article and will be taking some pointers from it, and yeah I should focus more on my diet.

I'd say it's better to get 2 chest workouts in during the week. My pecs recover fast so you should see how you feel in the beginning. Either way, you wanna do heavy sets of no more than 5-6 reps.

If you have a big frame or even just an undeveloped one, the diet combined with more intense lifting should improve your strength dramatically Camp doesn't start until August so you have more than enough time to get to respectable numbers for a 1st year (rep 185 a handful of times). I lift more pretty much every time I bench.

What school are you leaning towards?
I think I'm going to go back for a victory lap because of my ****** grades. As of now I've talked to Guelph, Ottawa U, McGill, and York. McGill is not an option because of my trash grades, and even though they are probably the most interested York is my last option because they aren't any good.

On topic my football training group is starting weights next week after two months of plyometrics so I'll be doing my benching and squats then. I'll take some pointers from Rob's article, and have to focus more on what I eat, especially on getting the right amount of protein. As of now I drink/eat way too much junk and never eat breakfast so I'll fix that.

Really? I don't usually swell in the morning but if I do I'm even more awake the rest of the day.

Asics are the best

Kayano 15 running shoe

These are what I have now. They're amazing, light as air and plenty of support. I've also had new balances, they're nice but they're quite a bit heavier.

What position do you play?

You really need to do some deadlifts and powercleans. Those are great for football players.
