In advance, this thread has a few topics in it but I felt that this area of the forums was most appropriate. I apologize if it's not, mods feel free to move to the correct place.
Well first let me introduce myself. My names Ryan and I'm 20 years old and just signed up to these forums. I just finally bought a weight bench with preacher curl attachment and a leg attachment. Yesterday I went out and bought a 300 lb set of weights with a 7' bar, and also have a few dumbells laying around.
I got to the point where I'm seriously tired of being the size I am right now. I am 5'11" and weigh 170 lbs. I played sports my whole life but now that I am in college and am working I don't have the time to do things like that. I want to really change my body. I would say I have a pretty athletic build, but I want to greatly increase my strength.
So now I have the equiptment and the desire. But unfortunitly I do not have much knowledge on this subject and that's why I'm turning to you guys for help. My main question is, what supplements should I buy to help me out? I have money to work with, but I'm obviously not rich. I'm willing to spend what I have to, but keep in mind that I'm a commuting college student who is working full-time, so any savings would be nice.
My secondary question is, and I'm sorry that this is in the wrong forum but I did not want to make two separate threads, is what type of routine should I be doing? If anyone could give me a link to a program that would be greatly appreciated. I am looking for a routine that focuses on the upper body, as my lower body is rather muscular already, mainly from 16 years of soccer.
Thanks to everyone in advance, I know that it must be annoying to get these newbie questions, I've dealt with them on other forums on other subjects and I'm not trying to be "that" kind of user. I respect everyone's knowledge on here and am open to all of your ideas. I'm glad to be a part of the forums and hope that I can also give back as much as I will take from them.
