Default Giving it another try

Hi all, Brad here. Im a 19 year old guy from Farmington Hills, MI.
Over the past few years i've tried unsuccessfully to consistently
work out and get into a regular routine. Things were going ok until I
tore my left ACL in December 06'. Now that i'm almost back to 100%
im trying to give things another go.

I just reactivated my membership at the local gym and worked out
for the first time today. Weighed in at 203 lbs. @ 6'2''

I consider myself a beginner to weightlifting, and am not very
knowledgeable about it.Id appreciate it if someone could help me out
with a basic routine, or suggest certain exercises to target muscle
groups that i need (judging by pics).

My goal is to get a bigger chest and more defined abs by this
summer. Id expect my weight to stay somewhat the same or go up a
bit as I shed some fat and put on more muscle. Any information
would be much appreciate it. Thanks guys.

check out the ultimate workout routine sticky at the top of the page under training. Ripptoe's starting strength program, or Bill starr's beginner 5x5 would be very good to start out with.
I don't do this for my family, my friends, women, accolades, pride, or ego. I do it for me and no one else, its just part of who I am.

Good luck with it man.. Just get consistent and learn all you can about nutrition and training... Be consistent and you'll see results... Good luck again!
You come into the world weak, and you will leave the world weak. What you do in between is up to you!
