  • Workout Advice?

    Can anyone suggest some gym exercises or even a full routine to get big somewhat quickly.

    A few reasons for this.

    1. Doctor's advice - Low blood pressure FTL (especially when your job has you spending hours on end standing in the same spot)

    2. Looks/strength, obviously, and all the usual reasons for working out.

    3. To win a bet.

    So yeah, any gym junkies out there who can help?

    Thanks.
    Feels good man.

        Start eating

        Start training with someone that knows what they're doing, and will push/challenge you

        Make as many loud noises as possible whilst training, and drop weights as loudly as you can

        The 3 most important parts to getting big.

          You forgot to mention stopping between each set to flex in the mirror.
          No amount of genius can overcome a preoccupation to detail.

            I'm not into this kind of stuff (exercise) but I understand the way to go is bulk up then strip away the fat, not both together.
            To bulk up eat heaps of protein and carbo's, so steak and eggs for breakfast, banana smoothies and even some protein supplements from the chemist. And do your weights for a few weeks or months.
            Then to strip away the fat so that you can see your muscles reduce your calorie intake and do lots of exercise like running, cycling, swimming.
            Or you can do what I do, drink lots of homebrew, ride by day, PS3 at night.

                That's not true. You can do cardio and bulking workouts in the same week. You just need your diet right. If you're losing fat but not building muscle then up the meals.

                  For greatest efficiency, you can't bulk and strip fat at the same time. You can do both however if you're not trying to achieve the greatest results you can in <x> amount of time.

                    48 hours between bulking workouts, 24 hours between cardio.

                      True, I'm coming from a background where fitness and speed is just as important as strength.

                      If he only wants to be as huge as possible, don't do any fat loss at all until you notice that no matter how much you eat, your body fat % is dropping. You'll be huge. Huge and impractical, but huge.

                      Edit..
                      Don't forget that body fat will mask your muscles. For example, I stopped working out for two weeks and did solid cardio and I looked just as bulky, not as strong, but the look will be defined by what's between your muscles and your skin.

                        well if you want to get fit/heathy go to the beach, sprint 10 seconds and then drop and do 10 push ups jump straight back up and go for 10 seconds again but this time do a 1 minute bridge next is push ups then back bridge/ side bridges. do that for a while and you will be mcfncked with in 10 to 15 minutes. have a bit of a break but don't cheat yourself, keep your heart rate up and do lots of sit ups, burpies and leg raises before you go for a swim and have a stretch.

                        but i wouldn't be doing heavy weights with low blood pressure, that's for sure

                            the bottom line if you want to get big is stick to big, heavy compound movements (squats, deadlifts, military press, bent rows etc), eat well and often and get plenty of sleep. most of the work changing your body is done in the 97%+ of your life that you spend out of the gym. cardio reduces muscle mass and reducing muscle mass reduces your bass metabolic rate which means its harder to get/stay lean. its fine for maintaining cardiovascular fitness but for achieving an athletic body shape its pretty shit.

                              Which is why professional athletes avoid it like the plague and stick to weight training? You don't make sense dr00.

                              Cardio doesn't reduce muscle mass if your diet is adjusted for it. Don't believe the hype.
