Post your diet. That has more to do with putting on mass than the workout. You're doing a lot of cardio, so that will cut down on the amount of mass you can put on. Or make it more difficult anyway. Your volume is too high. And you have some odd combinations on your workout days.

What are your goals? I'd tell you to read stickies X, Y, and Z in this forum but you haven't stated what end result you're looking for. This is crucial in designing a workout.

What is your diet like? You won't gain anything on your arms or anywhere else if you don't have enough calories - and of good kinds - in your diet. Tell us what you eat, and be extremely detailed.

Sprinting for 30-40 minutes will definitely keep you from reaching your growth goals. This goes back to objectives - what direction are you trying to push your body in?

Lastly, it wouldn't hurt to cite your stats. Height, weight, body fat % if you know it, that sort of thing.

Cradler 03-03-2008 12:56 PM

Sorry Ross, didn't realize you were typing that out too.

hrdgain81 03-03-2008 01:26 PM

I agree with everything thats been said so far. Post up your stats and your goals and we can help more.

Agreed

Oh yeah sorry. Here are my stats:

Age: 16
Height: 5'9''
Weight: 152lbs (69kg)
Arms: 11.7''
Chest: 35''
Thighs: 21''
Calves: 15.2''
Waist: 29.3''

Goal: I am currently training to be a faster sprinter but at the same time building on muscle mass.

Meal Plan: I don't exactly have a fixed meal plan as I am still under my parents house but I have cut chocolate and crisps from my diet except eating it about once every week and limited fast food down to once every two weeks. I am also eating a lot of lean meats and pasta nowadays.

Mike92 03-04-2008 04:31 AM

I was wondering if you guys could write out a new routine for me or change mine if it is not good

TALO 03-04-2008 05:44 PM

That will cost you $$$ :biglaugh:

Read some stickies

You'd do better picking one or two of your favorite exercises per bodypart and hitting the gym three days a week full body. Sets x reps should be lowered to accomidate frequency.. Something like 2 sets of whatever the hell you want. Just get stronger!
