Hi everyone,

Ok so I've watched about a billion Youtube videos now over the last year during Covid on everything to do with body building you name it.

I've tried a few different training styles and ideas now related to these different ways of training but still want to know so much more.

I am new to weights really (I am 43yo) as did endurance sports my whole life (boxing) and for the last few years now started doing a circuit of weights in the gym with a full body workout every second day, basically I went on every machine in the gym and did 2 circuits in about 45 minutes (6-8 reps to near failure on each one).

I did cardio every other day.

Now I have been trying to build muscle and see how my body responds and am trying all of the different things I am learning online including:


  • Compound strength lifts to 1 rep max
  • Endurance/hypertrophy training with 20+ reps of both compound and isolation exercises similar to my circuit
  • Bro splits with 8-10 reps x 3 sets which destroyed me
  • Push pull splits with above ratio
  • Other splits trying different forms of training over a weekly cycle to see how I respond and lower/higher reps within this split based on the exercise in both movement planes
  • Plus Yoga, Calisthenics, running, movement training, boxing etc

I find recovery hard and am not on steroids and have limited time in the gym so am trying to learn the best ways of training for muscle growth not interested in strength or endurance.

I want to know everything I can. Please add your comments.

Thank you.

If you are looking for mass, bro split is the only way to get there.
Forget all the dancing routines you mentioned, if you’re after muscle mass.
if you’re finding it too taxing, try doing one body part per day, but train 7 days in a week.
Others will no doubt state their opinions, but trawl through older posts and look at photos of kunce who do split and kunce who do the bullshit dancing routines and you’ll see the difference.
The split kunce pack muscle, whereas the dancing routine kunce bare look like tennis players.
see for yourself

Hey Gerbil
Tell us a story how you, between stints in the Klink for assaulting kids, won your striped pyjamas, got a caravan and picked a 1000 dingleberries in a single day.
And how every kunce should respect you for it cos you’re a major achiever, but the kunce just don’t.
Love that story when I’m bored, and I do bore easily.
Pleeeeeeeas, tell it just one more time.

lol not accurate but ur retarded so cant expect much from a guy whose mind i rule. You know i can intel right? Your so called family have a lot to hide. Theres no such thing as secrets. Agree or disagree,it is what it is. What i can tell you is that ur downfall wont be my doing,it will one of ur own. I just want to point out Grunta totals what 50 kg teenage girls total. Zero squat or deadlift strength,grunta is a misnomer,he doesnt have any.
