I'm a control freak. I'm extremely anal about my regimen, regardless of whether I intend to be or not. During downtime, I'll find myself thinking about what groups I've already hit, what groups I could hit again, and what's been lagging.

There's no doubt that squats are very important for building mass and building strength. I go through phases of dedicating a lot of time and effort to squats (and quads in general), but then I generally fall back off and resort to the same old same.

Deadlifts are definately my personal favorite. Squats are definately something I proscratinate and dread. And, in fact, I think I try to force it to the back of my mind & look for reasons to avoid them whenever possible - such as the fact that I work construction, in piperacks, etc. and hate the feeling of having sore legs for days on end - while having to climb and crawl and shit for work.

Regardless, I think I'll force myself to incorporate them into my routine more often again now. Why the hell not? I've already recognized that it's a problem. I just need to man up & get back to it more regularly.

I started off on Starting Strength and made some fairly good progress. Any training based around the theories of Bill Star and Mark Rippetoe are generally good for strength and mass gains.

As of recently, I've transitioned into olympic weightlifting so I've been running the Bulgarian program for something along the lines of two & a half months now. My goal was to get my total around 1200 lbs then switch to something a bit more entertaining (OL).

Most programs you will find in magazines, on the internet, etc,. are highly falsified, let alone impractical.

That is true cause you read like 3 different things from different magazines to the same situation/problem etc.

The best trainer is trial/error or a proper program.

Call me dull in the head but I can not make sense of this. I do not understand what you are speaking about in the quoted context (apart from the trial/error).

pretty sure he's basically saying that you hear different things from different people and you just have to use some trial and error to find what is best for you.

I'd agree with that. You can pick & choose bits or pieces from others' programs, but you're never going to just "stumble" across the perfect program for YOU without putting it into action for yourself.

Photos, videos, or the author of some article won't determine what's best for you. They won't keep you motivated enough, rested enough, or nourished enough to hit the gym 3-5 times a week.

Likewise, there's not one poster here who can answer your question of, "What should I do?"

We can merely offer advice and suggestions. It's going to take you applying it and seeing what works with your life, your schedule, and your body type to determine whether or not it's efficient in the end.

How do you guys split your workouts? This is my schedule:

Sunday: Chest/Tris
Monday: Biceps/Forearms
Tuesday: Abs/Legs
Wednesday: Back/Shoulders
Thursday: Full body

My friend who I go to with likes to do full body workouts on Thursday, but I feel like that is kind of pointless because we are over training. So what do you guys think? Yay or nay to full body?

what I meant was everyone is different different programs will have different results for some people, by listening to your body and trying out different things and seeing what works and what doesn't. That's what's best for you, not some random guy who has supposedly figured out the perfect workout.

Of course there are some things you should always follow such as form etc. But I am talking about the overall structure of the workout.

There is no point doing a full body workout on the same week when your already training pretty much all the muscle groups in your body, your not giving your muscles enough time to recover.
