So i used to go to the gym with a buddy of mine, he got ripped, i never did. granted he always put up more weight than i did, but i continue on the same routine, and i have seen very few results. i am 6' 2" i weight in at 231lbs. i have a gut that i HATE. i went from a semi active job, to a desk job, so its harder to burn as many calories, and harder to eat right as there is shit food all over the office. he got me stated on this 12,10,8,6 up the weight each time regime. routines are as follows- (sorry, dont know each name) chest day- 2 different ab machines, one lifts legs, wihle you crunch, the other just bends down bench- i start with 35lbs on each side, do a rep of 12, up it to 45 on each side, do 10 reps up it to 55 on each side, do 8 reps up it to 60 on each side, do 6 reps incline bench with free weights, 35lbs 12 times 40lbs 10 times 45lbs 8 times 50lbs 6 times go to i think its the butterfly machine- (sit with chest towards machine, arms close together, move arms out left and right until its even with my body. start with 90lbs 12 times 100lbs 10 times 110lbs 8 times 130lbs 6 times Military press- 35lbs 12 times 40lbs 10 times 45lbs 8 times 50lbs 6 times (if i can get to that point, if arms arent too tired) go back to butterfly machine (back towards machine, taking arms from straigh out to sides, to infront of me. 110lbs 12 times 120lbs 10 times 130lbs 8 times 150lbs 6 times next day is arm, shoulder back Abs- same as above Back machine- (sit with chest towards machine, pull straight back) start with 100lbs 12 times 110 10 times 120 8 times 130 6 times Pulldown machine, Close grip (pull straight down from above) 90lbs 12 times 100 10 times 110 8 times 130 6 times tricepts- cable machine, pull down with arms infront of me, then do a set with my back to the machine, pulling the cable from above my head to infront of body 70lbs 12 times 80 10 times 90 8 times 100 6 times bicepts- i think it was called the 7 7 7 workout. start out iwht 45lb bar elbows to my side, arms straight out do 7 from there up to chin. then do 7 from center down to legs, then do 7 whole motion. bottom to top (legs to chin) bicept bench- 45lbs 12 times 70lbs 10 times 90lbs 8 times 115lbs 6 times ill post the leg setup later tonight or toomrrow. i just think that my body is used to those work outs. i go to the gym by myself, so i dont have a spotter to go with more weight, and i dont take any supplements. so what im asking, is there anyone that can write a better workout regime? can anyone recoment supplements to me? im just tired of having this damn gut! flame away for being a fatty!
