So I've had a few people asking me what routine has worked best for me for gaining muscle and strength.
Before I start I will talk about some of my past routines.
When I first started going to the gym which was around 2 years ago I weighted 108lbs and had never lifted a weight in my life. I was very skinny but at the same time I grew up getting into a lot of fights so I wasn't too weak. I started on a 3 day routine which looked like.
Monday: Chest and Triceps
Wednesday: Back and Biceps
Friday: Legs and Shoulders
As a beginner I didn't know much about the exercises and diet but I knew I had to eat a lot more. I saw great gains (noob gains) but I started noticing problems while doing this routine. After doing a big workout on my chest I didn't have much energy to work my triceps which prevented me from lifting heavier weights. This resulted in lower strength and mass gains. This was the same for back and biceps. I would usually do a few sets on biceps and call it a day. This became a big problem for me because i noticed my chest and back grew the fastest for me, whereas my arms lagged behind.
I knew I had to change something about my routine and swapping the order I did my body parts was a no go. I decided to do a lot more research about training and looking up many different routines.
