What's up guys??? This is my first post and i'd like to say thanks for building such a great, knowledgeable site, you guys really know your stuff, especially 0311, the Marine. Much respect and thanks brother. My background in lifting is from football, I played from 7 yrs old through college, went through the combine, and tried out for the Eagles, Dolphins, and Falcons. None wanted me, LOL, I was "too short". Now I just coach.I haven't lifted much since then and now i'm going back!!!! Any routines you would suggest for me? I would like to go 5 times a week as that's what i'm used to. I go with a guy I played in college with and he's now a trainer but he's more into the speed and conditioning thing. I want BIGGGGG!!!! I am 6'0, 225, not fat just a little chubby. At the gym Monday I did.... bench 225# 11 reps (used to do 23), squat, 265# 3 times, leg press 400# 3 times. I have no idea what my maxes are, our strength coach always said it was stupid and you'd just get hurt doing it. I apologize for this being soooo long but any help would be appreciated. Thanks

You don't have to work out 5 times a week for your workout to be effective. If you that set on working out 5 times a week then I would do Max-OT split. Personally I liked it but after trying 5x5 (which is only 3 times a week), I don't thing I'll ever go back to Max-OT. and if I do it will only be for a month to change things up. If I were in your shoes I would to a Upper/lower body split. this way you can hit your upper and lower body twice a week and go to the gym 4 times a week. Look at mine or 0311's journal entries, they both have the upper/ lower body split exercises in them.
