[2007]
sorry, no before shots, but I was doing split routines and have noticed the growth compared to full body workouts.

have dabbled in lifting over the years but never took it seriously, but since December 06 I have kept fairly true to training 3x a week. I'm 6'2" and 87kgs. not a hulk, but getting the shape I want... though always room for improvement. 8) considering I was around 80 2 years ago goes along way to prove the benefits of lifting heavy with purpose. having a training log helps.

an image

cheers guys.

Nice one. You know what they say - good things take time. Have you considered trying a 4-day split for a bit of variety? Sometimes a change like that can give you quite a boost.

Also, this seems like as good a place as any to welcome you - so welcome. <img src=" title="Very Happy" />

Looking good mate.

You have the height to be able to really pack on the size & still look leanish.

I was around 80kg when I started lifting (6"2 also) and I'm currently sitting on 109kg.... although I've got some bf to lose, I'm nowhere near fat.
How does your diet etc look?

Would be good to see some wheel shots.

Keep it up.

Always on a Bulker

cheers guys.

poos_n_wees: the legs are slower in change. though I do have a deeper butt crack now! damn sweaty butt crack... I include one in shorts when I post new pics in a few months. I normally train in track pants as I have tats down one leg and I try not to stick out. so I cover up.

Pseudonym: I havent thought past my 3 day split. what do you recommend? I am keen for any extra intel 8)

blairandkelly: size. grew up thin. taken a few decades to get my shit sorted.

Cammo: the diet is getting there. I start getting better money next year so will have the diet sorted fully by then. just eat whatever I can get. tuna sandwiches, and even canned cornbeef! being tall does help hide the sins of diet! not looking to go pro but just need that size. will focus more on definition when I can get that extra weight. would like to end up around 95-100kgs. but time will tell.

2guns: seems like its been a hard road to notice a change in myself, and the best is (of course) always while lifting. god I love that pump.

as you say guys, good things take time. cheers for your time and support!

There's certainly nothing wrong with a 3-day split, but it's good to change things around every so often. If you're going for a 4-day split, it really depends on you - how much time you have, any body parts you want to give extra work, etc. But here's a good basic split:

Mon: Back, biceps
Tue: Chest, triceps
Thur: Legs
Fri: Shoulders, Abs

i agree. the good old mon tues / thurs fri split is hard to beat. 3 days a week is probably just enough to maintain a reasonable physique but not enough if you want to add some size.

i do a 5 day split and its fine.

in no particular order

chest
shoulders
back
legs
arms

abs everyday

gonan start weights twice a day soon though so its intersting to c wat splits ppl do, in the end i think we all get the same results comes down to how hard u train
