To make the muscles strong and prominent  it necessary to do the workout as much as you can. If someone is in the initial stage and just start doing workout to make the muscle then it should do lite weight and for few day to make it's stamina for the heavy weight.

Lift in a rep range of 8-10 for best muscle gain. When the weight becomes difficult at 10 but not complete failure (don't go to failure) then up the weight and shoot for 8 reps.
There is lots of programs out there to do. Push/pull, full body, or body part split. As a newbie I feel full body is best to start out on and then follow a split.

Full bodies are done 3 times a week, working one exercise for every muscle. Never lift consecutive days when following a full body. So you could do like a mon, weds and friday. Do other stuff on the other days, boxing ,cardio whatever. Stay active.

jtgymguy,  I am a bodybuilder.  Would be happy to chat with you.  Will not give you ANY advice without knowing alot more about you though, such as Age, Stats, general Health issues, and goals.  After all, *ALL* advice on bodybuilding MUST be based on those preliminaries.  I work out a lot differently now than I did a few years ago, and WAAAY different than when I was in my 30s (I'm 53 now).  But if you'd like to share a bit more about who you are, where you're at, and where you wanna go, I'd be happy to chat with you, online or through pms.

I'm curious.  When did "fat on steroids" become a new definition for "bodybuilder"?  Just wondering.

Is it really important to be antagonistic when I'm simply trying to become a member of this online community?  I have only answered questions openly and honestly, and some use that as an occasion to be catty and unnecessarily nasty.

How about we just coexist and embrace the fact that what we have in common is our desire to kick HIV's ass?

Hey Melburn You look good.  I am doing kettlebells and loving it three hours a week.  Also doing Brazilian jiu jitsu two times a week and loving it.   Am sore sometimes.  Am taking oregano oil two times a day in a capsule to keep me from getting staph from the mat.   Keep up the good work.

Our gym just got some of those kettlebells, and I've watched some guys use them but I havent done so myself yet.  I'm too afraid I'll screw up and end up throwing one through the window or hurting myself! LOL!

I started with a weight smaller than the girls. In a short time moving up.  It is intense being done by a certified. Instructor. I am the second oldest in class.  The oldest is 68.  He goes from that class to a advanced jujitsu class.  I admire Him.

I don't work out and my body looks better than what I'm seeing here. Maybe we just need to see more visual proof. I know you girls can come up with something.

That said, in my younger days when I religiously went to the gym five days a week with a rigorous routine, my nickname was Barbara Biceps. Fortunately I didn't start working out having to lose weight from a life as a fattie, I was always trying to gain weight. I even use to fly to Miami with a cheap electric blender in my carry-on so I could make protein shakes in my hotel room. Not many people do that.

Hey there Milburn.....looking toned.  I used to be a serious work-out guy a few years back.  OK, maybe a few decades. LOL.  More cardio/machines these days for me but still enjoy the routine (physically and keeps my head straight too.)  Best to you. ;)

Studies at Tuffs University and others demonstrated quite convincingly that strength and muscle mass could be improved at virtually any age with resistance training. Earlier studies didn't push their older subjects as much as their younger study participants, consequently they didn't gain mass and strength accordingly. I'm pushing 60 but I'm still pumping iron. I use isotonic abdominal crunches to keep my abdomen flat.

In Columbus Ohio, where I had lived for awhile, my father and I would go to the down YMCA. My dad would kick everybodies asses (including my own) in racket ball or handball  and I would lift. I'll never forget this poster of an absolutely "ripped"  half naked, 75-80 year old man hanging on the wall. I hope I live long enough to become a similar man (plus you're more attractive to the younger guys and gals).

Advice as given by Milburn plus a physician's check up. Age appropriate tests such as a stress test may be necessary. I had to take a stress in order to use the gym at the VA.


I use Arnold's Schwarzenegger most excellent bodybuilding book as a general guide. These days I'm doing the 6 day split routine and jump on the bike trainer (It is winter here) if I can't make the gym. My preference has always been for free weights. During the summer I'll lay off the weights and bike and swim. It certainly helps if you are a little masochistic , you get out what you put into it. If it was easy everybody would be doing it. Good luck.
