Yell back and tell me whats goin on ok?
Once again thanks for reading, and give me all the advice you guys possibly can. Peace..
I'd suggest working out something along the lines of 3 days a week. The key is 1) to completely wear your self out on a workout and then rest for a sufficient amount of time, and 2) to steadily increase your weight lifted.
To gain strength and mass, go heavy weight, low rep. I prefer to do 3-4 sets of 6 reps with the heaviest weight I can manage.
Concentrate on core muscle workouts to gain mass and strength. Work deadlifts (bent leg, not stiff), clean and presses, power cleans, high pulls, bench presses, squats, push presses, and bent over rows. If you're not sure what any of these are, type them into a search engine, you should find some instructions.
Also, concentrate on your triceps and shoulders rather than your biceps. The tricep is actually a bigger, stronger muscle than the bicep. I reccomend over the head tricep curls and tricep dips. For the shoulders, shrugs, military presses and dumbbell shoulder combos.
Remember, this is all just opinion, other excercises might work better for you.
