Default So I have the time to start workin out again but...

...but I only have 3 or 4 consecutive days to do it. What kind of program (if any) are good for this? I really want to start working out again and get a jump on the school season but I dont' know what program to do. Last anyone heard of me here I was cutting to go to mexico for spring break... had pretty good results and now I would like to start trying to throw on some pounds till at least xmas and then cut again for the next spring break trip.

So my question again is what program can I do when I have 4 days to work out in a row... ???

Thanks for all your help and time.

Steve

if you're still in the beginner stages, you could try an A-B approach like Rip's Starting Stength program and do it on day 1 and 3 of your training days.

A-Squat/Bench/Row

B-Squat/OH press/DL

add in some chins/pullups/abs/beach work after the big lifts.

the frequency probably isnt optimal but should still net you some progress.

That sounds alright cause I was planning on doing the rippetoe program when I got to school anyways. I just wanted to be back into the game instead of having to "ease in" again. Is the rippetoe program any good for bulking?

it's a very good basic program for someone who hasnt been training very long (if at all) or for someone who has never trained properly before (like me!)
I've used something similar to it since Jan of this year and added almost 3 inches to my legs, 1 and 1/2 inches to my arms and gained over 20lbs.
not bad for a 40 year old who could never ever break the 14" arm barrier no matter how hard he tried, (gonna break 15" real soon!), so I can only imagine how a hard-training teen or early 20's guy could do with it!

This is very true. I plan on gettin in some massive carbs such as potatoes or rice along with lean protein like tuna or chicken. Add in some veggies and whatnot here and there and I should be good to go.

if you're bulking, dont be afraid to get in some whole eggs, steak, peanut butter, and whole dairy products too. you need calories and eating too clean can make adding muscular bodyweight much harder.
