    She has to eat 12,000 calories a day to meet her goal of 1,000 pounds in 2 years. I don't even know if I could eat 12,000 calories in a day if I tried.

    Haven't updated in awhile:

    Continuing my 6 days/wk workout routine, with cardio every day and anaerobic conditioning every other.

    Can max bench 230lbs now, with 5 sets x 15 reps at 135lbs to further tone and condition muscle stamina. Move to various bicep / triceps curl activities, like hammer press / bicep curl - 4 sets x 15 reps at varying weights to sculpt and peak bicep and triceps.

    Run 3 miles/day with 10 minutes of vigorous rowing machine accompaniment

    Almost in best shape of life. Competing in a 10k in June; half-marathon at the end of summer.


    Good luck everyone!

    Need more info.
    Sorry for the late response.

    I'm 21, and have only been lifting for about 2 weeks now. I've lifted before when I was 17, but I think I did it really wrong.

    The schedule I'm doing is every other day, which is what I've always heard you're supposed to do, but I really have no idea.

    Would it be a good idea to do upper-upper-lower-upper... instead of upper-lower-upper-lower...?
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    You'll need to do some experimenting, everyone is different.

    Typically, the way I used to split body parts when I first started was:

    Day1: Chest/arms(bi's and tri's)

    Day2: Rest, with 30 min. of cardio

    Day3: Legs (quads, hamstrings, calves)

    Day4: Rest, with light cardio/walking, to help get rid of the lactic acid in my legs.

    Day5: Back/shoulders

    Day6: Rest

    Day7: Depending on how I felt, start over with Chest/arms, or take another rest day with some cardio.

    -------
    You can't go wrong with taking an extra day off if you aren't feeling especially motivated, your body needs time to heal and grow. But the next day you need to start back.

    If you keep the schedule you will be noticing good changes. The caveat is, you need to seriously punish your muscles, especially legs to get them to grow. But that doesn't mean working them every day. People get so used to a schedule, they blindly follow it. And don't notice when they stop making gains, or actually lose muscle mass/strength.

    Everyone always harps on the activity, but forget that to grow/adapt, you need to give your body time to heal.

    But you need to be self aware enough, and motivated enough. To know when to take a break, and when to get moving again.
