    http://www.anabolicreview.com/vbulle...threadid=24585

    Is this too much for my diet? Should I slow down some? Do you think it will work out good.

    My goals are to gain and cut. I'm a little guy now and I just want to gain about 15-20lbs into muscle... I am currently taking Creatine.

    Thanks in advance for your thoughts...

    You do need cardio and with 26.5 % BF you shouldnt burn any muscle if you calculate and use your target heart rate for fat burning.

    But if you only want weights then you look like you put alot of though into it.

    Most importantly, how do you feel? do you feel burned out or ready to go?

    I think you got way too many exercises for each body part since you're just beginning. You definetly should do cardio 3 days a week . I don't know how you way 145 and have 26% bf. Where did you get your bf% from?

    I'd go with something like this.

    Day 1- Chest \ tri
    Day 2-Back \bi
    Day 3-Rest
    Day 4-Shoulders \ Traps
    Day 5-Legs
    Day 6- Rest
    Day 7-Chest \Tri.... So on, so on

    Cut down to 3 exercises for each body part and sets of 4 +warmup. Do cardio 3 days a week and abs 4 days a week. You shouldn't over do it at the beginning, once you have a couple of months under your belt then we'll change it up and taylor it to your liking. This is strictly to build some sort of base for you.

    Stay away from shaping movements (ie. concentration curls) for now. Stick with the big building movements (squats, deadlifts, bench...). Also check out the search feature for workout's, there's a ton of shit to look at.

    my cousin weights less than 120 but her BF is WAY higher than mine.

    its totally possible to be skinny and fat at the same time if you think along the lines of BF%'s.

    It's just weird for me cuz I'm 5-11.5 and weigh 219lb. I don't look like it and nobody ever believes me until I have to go to the scale and show them.

    The bf was taken from my arm from some machine... it reminds me of an ultrasound machine. It picked it up pretty quick. I don't know how bf is determined, so I figured this was the correct way. Am I mistaken?

    I'm with Vegas on this one. Your bf% sounds REALLY high for being 5ft 10 and 145lbs. Example of this is, a friend of mine that recently started out is 5ft 11in at 170lbs and his bf is around 13%. Go get it taken with calipers or other means.

    Buddha, women can weigh less and have a higher bf%. Comparing men and women in that category is apples and oranges because of muscle build, bone structure, etc etc...

    Camaro...start off slow with your routines. Doing too much too fast will lead to injury and that will only hinder obtaining your goals. Do 4 exercises for each body part. 3 sets ...8-6-4 reps to build muscle mass and size. Cut down on the cardio if gaining mass is your goal. Space out your days....start off with working out 3-4 days a week and work up to 5. Make sure to get your rest too! Muscles won't grow without it!!!!

    Lets say like you work your chest on monday, well working your chest also works your tris too, so why would you want to work tris the next day. You need to give your tris a rest so they can grow. You can work tris,bis and forearms on the same day just dont do chest on the next day because you will already killed your arms on monday and might not be able to have a good workout for your chest. Alot of people do chest and arms twice a week, i do everybody part once a week. Im trying to gain strength. That my opinion. Also it depends on how many days you can workout too. If you dont have alot of days to workout on, then you gotta do what you gotta do. Take Care.
