My routine for MASS-opinions?
Ok everyone, I am 19 years old, 205lbs, probably 20-27% bodyfat. I have been lifting for about a month. Used to lift a lot in H.S but quit my Freshman year of college. Anyways, I want to get freakishly huge-this is what I do.
Barbell Flat Bench Press-5x5
Barbell Incline Press-5x5
Barbell Dumbell Press-5x5
Dumbbell Butterfly Press-5x5
Dumbbell Pec Press-5x5
Wide Grip Pull Ups-5x5
Wide Grip Lat Bar-5x5
Horizontal Grip Row Machine-5x5
Barbell Preacher Curl-5x5
Barbell Preacher Reverse Curl-5x5
Dumbbell Hammer Curl-5x5
Bent-over reverse tricep curl-5x5
Tricep Rope (on the lat bar)-5x5
Seated tricep machine-5x5
Shoulder seated forward lifts-5x5
Shoulder side lifts-5x5
Same as Monday
Same as Tuesday
On all these days I am running 2 miles.
I usually do not eat untill noon. Then I have a can of tuna and a Lean Pocket. I have a protein shake (40g) right after lifting. I usually go to Subway and get one of their health subs. I know my diet is bad. If you all could give me some tips on my routine that would be great, I will search these boards for the nutrition section and post my question on my diet there. Hows my routine look? Suggestions please!

absolutely horrible training routine...WAAAAY too many exercise......you're overtraining......you're not giving your body sufficient amounts of rest.......and i see NO legs exercises in there. If you want to get big, you HAVE to train your legs bro.......
running 2 miles a day isnt the best thing for putting on mass either
train each boypart once a week.....stick to heavy compound movements (squats, deadlifts, rows, and bench). im gonna go out on a limb and say your diet is completely horrible as well.....stick around, read the boards and you'll find out whats the best thing to do....

bro, i wouldnt do that workout (is that arnolds workout from flex) but you look like you are just getting started working out. Read and ponder these forums for hours and you well find some very useful advice. Use the search forum option to the top right of the board. I can search for anything you want.

As bad as that routine is. I'd make sure I knew how to eat before anything else. I wouldn't suggest that routine to anyone. As the others have said. Search button it. There is no substitute for a sound diet. Training only stimulates muscle. Especially if your trying to put on mass.

If you da cardio it should be in the morning on an empty stomach. At about 65% to 75% of MHR. This is a brisk walk with arms pumping.
Your diet is Key here in loosing all the fat you have and keeping what muscle you have. You should be eating 6 to 7 meals a day. With proper protein,fat and carbs at the right time. The amount of protien you need is 1.5 times your body weight divide that number by 6 or 7 and you will get the amount of protein for each meal. For fat you can eat PB of take flax. For carbs you should keep them low considering all the fat you have. Once you loose the fat then you can up them.
Sorry bro got to go to work I could go on for hours at this. This will give you some where to start. Read your ass off. Read as many big threads as you can. Swole has a good thread for bis and tris. Blown sc always post some good stuff. There are to many to name but like I said you can tell who knows there ****. im prettty much on point here some of the other bros will have many opinions. Listen to all and get your self a workout and diet.

Have you ever heard the saying "Less is more, and more is less" this definently pertains to lifting in the early stages, i.e. one month. I would keep the sets to about 9-12 per body part, and the time to about 1 - 1 1/4 hours. Throw some legs in there with at least 2 days off per week (yes that means do nothing... maybe cardio)
