    I like Dogcrapp type of training and/or POF training, they are both low volume, do a search on these type of training to see what they are all about...i think volume training creates to much stress and is counterproductive...XXL

    I would just suggest if you are starting a 5 day a week training schedule you hit one body part per day. 45 minutes and you are out of the gym.
    Mon- chest
    Tues- back
    wed. off/ abs
    Thurs- shoulders
    Fri. off /abs
    Sat. arms
    Sun- legs.
    This happens to be my schedule.
    Train in the 8 to 12 rep range. Making 10 reps your standard. Don't waste your time hitting a body part3 days a week. You will never train hard enough to make any gains.

    Good luck and welcome back,
