    help is certainly needed here

    hey all,
    i've recently taken the good old look in the mirror and have decided it's time to put up or shut up. i've been lifting weights for a couple years, note i said lifting, not training or working out. i've come to realize that i've been more moving weights than anything. i do have a thyroid problem, ext. underactive, but i'm tired of using that as an excuse.
    i'm 25, 6'1, 260...bodyfat unsure, but hi. i have a solid looking physique, but want to change looking into feeling. i've recently started to watch the carb/calorie/fat intake, following southbeach routine.
    the help i'm asking for is this:
    my current lift schedule is as follows:
    mon chest tri's
    tues shoulders cavs
    thurs back bi
    friday quads hams.

    i don't have a specific routine though, i don't know how to build one/what order should exercises be done?
    i've tried searching on here, and always get a thousand different posts, but all steroid related. i want to get my workout on track before adding gear. so any suggestions, links or example routines would be great.
    thanks

    oh, cardio is done sun, wed, saturday

    Looks good if you're just starting to get into it. After you build some more endurance and strength, UP the intensity.

    ur doing a bad search if everything u found was steroid related.. there is TONS of natural bodybuilding posts.... as for what kind of lifts.. well the basics.. compound movements (deadlift, squats, bench) all heavy in the 6-8 rep range.

    do the calves on friday with legs

    I wouldn't do shoulders the day after chest and tris. Thats just me though, my chest, tri's and delts are still sore and not ready for shoulders the next day after what should be a high intensity workout for chest/tri's.

    Having Hypothyroidism does affect everything here and that includes a work out schedule /diet ect. So you should consult your endo specialist first. The problem you may have is not being able to keep some intensity up. Over the long haul it may help your thyroid produce more T3/T4 but your main problem may be TSH and I do not think you can correct that with exercise.
