Workout Routine - Beginner
Alittle about me:
I've been training for about 3 weeks now - only have access to dunbells and a adjustable bench. When i was in my teens i used to do wieghts 4 times a week and bulked up.
My job forced me to work in remote locations resulting in no job access, so i'm not hoping now to get back into shape.
I used to be 135kg, 6ft 5inches tall. Ive achieved my goal weight of 98 kg's. However now i'm looking to achive more muscle mass, i have a natural bulkyness, large shoulders and chest.
My currently routine i have been doing is a split, doing the following:
Mon - Chest
Tues - Triceps and Biceps
Thurs - Shoulders Lats and deltoids
fri - Rest
Sat - Full body
sun - rest
Of all the days i enjoy the Full body workout, i generally feel i accomplished more and has me feeling that good burn and swelling in muscles.
Question i have is, could i achive moderate results in doing full body workout 3 times a week apposed to doing split workouts.
I have no asperations on being huge, only reasonable toned and a fit appearance. If i ever want to bulk up i can in the future.
Any advise and more importantly workout routines would be awesome.
Finally i do no lower body, however i play tennis once a week for 3-5 hours and go jogging 3 times a week. Hate squats, lunges etc with a passion. Also have no time to goto gym.

the best advice for a beginner is to take it slow and keep it simple.
squat, dead lift, bench press, overhead press. learn those movements inside and out. the power clean is also a great one but it has a high learning curve; you'll wanna know how to deadlift before you do that anyways. learn how to do them, why you're doing them the way you're doing them and not another way, and what the mistakes look like. you're going to want to to this unless you already have an accomplished body building friend to work out with who can spot you. if you don't, all you will most likely find is someone who wants to balance on a medicine ball with one leg with you while you jump up in the air and do inverse bicep curls.
the best book i've ever read on how to teach something was Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe and Lon Kilgore. Buy it and read it 3 times, THEN start lifting.
