    Alright, so I'm bored. I've met quite a few professional wrestling fans on WiiChat, but it seems my other passion is not quite as popular, or else people are more secretive about it :scared: So this is a thread for people to post their routines and to ask questions/talk about weightlifting.

    Post your routine:

    Monday
    Ch, Sh, Tri
    Bench
    DB Bench
    Arnies
    Dips
    Tuesday
    Ba, Bi, Legs
    Squats
    BO Rows
    Chins
    BB/Preacher Curls
    Thursday
    Ch, Sh, Tri
    Inc. Bench
    CG Bench
    Millies
    Lateral Raises
    Friday
    Ba, Bi, Legs
    Deadlifts
    T-Bars
    Chins
    Calf Raises



    Of course, my routine varies from time to time, but this is what I am currently doing. If you have any questions at all ASK. Whether it be about the terms, how to get started, or perhaps you've just always wondered something about weightlifting, ASK!

    Any comments? Dont understand something? Need some help making your own routine? I'm happy to help!

    My question is: How many reps and sets should a person start with? Would it be best to find my one rep max and work it out from there?

    Usually you should do 3-5 sets with 8-10 reps.

    Nicko: It has been said that low rep schemes (5-8) show results better and high rep schemes (8-12) help you lift more. Of course, both of them do both jobs, it has just been noted that if you are trying to look good for the ladies then do less and if your trying to put more weight on the bar do more.

    I do ussually do 3x8. The less reps you do, the more sets you do and vice versa.

    However, it should be noted that one should not have the same rep-set scheme indefinetly. Along with your exercises, this should change up to shock your muscles.

    Multiple People: I only take Whey Protein Powder, which (for those of you who dont know) is basically JUST protein, nothing more. Sadly, my parents arent as fond as my passions as I am and so they wont let me take Creatine, or else I would.

    Wiired: I haven't done a one rep max in a long time. I am not very fond of them because to me it seems like a wasted day at the gym. After doing a one rep max you are extremely tired, yet, you hardly accomplished a workout. I can do 155x8. I'm telling you guys that I'm not all that strong but you refuse to believe me :lol:




    Wow, this thread hit off better then I'd expected. I was thinking It'd get a couple posts and then die. Keep posting guys.

    I'm sure there's a way to work out your one rep max using that.

    EDIT: Found a site on the internet that says your one rep max using those figures is 197.

    Makes sense to me Nicko...my max is only 175 =3 Ah well, I'm gettin there =P

    I usually go to the gym Monday-Wednesday-Friday. I don't usually lift anything specifically, I just do three sets of ten on multiple machines at varied weights =P I do that for about 45 minutes-1 hour and then I swim for another hour. Although typically the pool is full so I end up sitting in the Sauna for 1/2 hour...but that's ok cuz it relaxes your muscles and then it's a little easier to swim. The only problem is I keep forgetting to stretch o_O I'm soooooo sore!

    EDIT: ^ Good question...I also want to know how much it costs. But Levesque be not here anymores =/ Does anyone else use it?

    Like I said, it isn't all too fancy stuff. It is simply used to increase your protein intake. A meal replacement, if you will. Their are varying flavors (yet, none of them are all too tasty) but I suggest chocolate because in my experience, the weirder the flavors the weirder the taste. You'll have to expirement and find a kind that you like the taste of. You just mix a cup or two into water (or milk, for added protein) and drink it. Price depends on what brand you get. You could probably get a big tub of the stuff for 20-30 bucks. But like I said, dont buy in bulk until you know you like the flavor.

    Drink Whey immediatly after workouts and whenever you dont fulfill your daily protein intake.

    Depends on the size. The one I get is pretty big and lasts me a few months.
